Five Home Easy Cleaning Tips
When you put your hands on the hips and look around assessing the challenge ahead, just remember that the solution to many problems you run into at home lies so close to you. And to give these words some consistency, here are five easy cleaning tips which will make this weekend ordeal shorter and more pleasant, as seen on Realsimple.com.
It happens to you that, when visiting a house or an apartment, you are met by that bad odor which says a lot about the low frequency of cleaning in that respective place. Many times, the smell is absorbed by the carpet so, to absorb stale odors from carpet and to generally freshen up a room) scatter baking soda on it, wait a few hours and then vacuum up the powder.
If you have pets and take them with you on weekend trips, then it is wise to protect your car seats from muddy paws by covering them with a bath mat or two before packing Lilly the Lab in the backseat. The rubber bottom will help the mat stay in place while the fluffy texture easily absorbs anything should any accident happen on the back seat. Between trips, stow the mat in the trunk.
The gas stove gets dirty so easy and so often, another nerve racking ordeal we frequently have to go through. Preserve a pristine stovetop by applying a thin layer of car wax, then wiping it off. You will then see that future spills will lift off easily.
Cups in the kitchen attract stains like a magnet. If you don’t want to turn to the usual sponge and dishwashing detergent, then remove those coffee or tea stains from a mug by rubbing them with a lightly salted citrus peel.
And, last on our list of home cleaning solutions is the corn meal. Add this to the grocery shopping list for new reasons. Cornmeal absorbs grease on light colored fabric or upholstery. Pour enough on to cover the soiled area and let sit for 15 to 30 minutes. Vacuum to remove the grains and cleaning the spot is way easier now.
