Cleaning is no one’s piece of cake. Thinking about it alone is enough to give one a headache. It gets worse when one has to go an extra mile to get rid of accumulated dirt.
With time, there have emerged shelves of cleaning products in the market, all promising to make things easier. However, cleaning can be made easy with some Do IT Yourself (DIY) tips like:
Microwave a bowl of water with squeezed lemon for five minutes, and watch as the steam loosens the caked-on foods. Instead of scrubbing the interior of your microwave, wipe the loosened dirt away.
Boil water with vinegar and let it work on the pot for a while. Scrub the pot with baking soda and rinse.
Stained taps and faucets
Water spots are a nuisance on taps. Attempting to scrub them off will only damage the surface of your taps. Instead, rub them off with vinegar.
Unlike cleaning agents which will just remove sweat odour from your sleeping place, vodka cleans, disinfects and freshens it. Use sparingly to allow fast drying.
The spaces between your bathroom tiles darken with time since the usual cleaning procedure doesn’t reach them. Use water, baking soda and an old toothbrush to scrub them clean.
Cleaning glass windows and tables can be tedious at times. You put all your resources in cleaning in and when you you’re done, there are streaks of soap and lint on it. A piece of old newspaper will do the trick: you just have to crumple it and shine your glass.
For some shoes, no amount of cleaning gets them rid of bad smell. Sprinkle some baking soda in the shoes to keep them smelling fresh, and then when you’re ready to wear them again, just tap it out outside.
