Easy Cleaning – Accessible Home Tips

We are used to looking for solutions to different problems we run across at home anywhere else but around us. And since we used you to the series of practical advice for home, here are new useful ideas which can help you in so many different situations, as seen on Realsimple.com. From making an old carpet fluffy again to cleaning a clogged drain, these solutions are easy and require scant resources.

We’ve seen various ways to remove the gunk off the soleplate of an iron. This time you won’t have to oil it, but with the setting on low, rub the iron over the dryer sheet until the residue disappears, and you’re left with a pristine press.

Those hard-boiled eggs you have for breakfast can also help in other ways: use their broken eggshells to clean the hard-to-reach places in bottles and vases. Drop some crushed shells in the bottle, add warm water and a drop of dishwashing liquid, and give it a good shake. The shells will scrape off the gunk you can’t reach, so you can save your elbow grease for the dinner dishes.

You all have those always fashionable suede shoes and boots. Any stain there makes us sob, but the solution may be easier than you think. Remove small stains from suede by gently rubbing a soft file across the problem area a few times to get rid of the splotch and refresh the nap.

Turn to a fork to bring back life a fluffy carpet which has seen better days. Use the tines to gently fluff plush carpet fibers back to their original height, removing dents left by heavy furniture.

Keep your towels and linen fresh by placing an open box of baking soda inside the drawer. The powder will make sure to stave off mustiness and keep the items perfumed for a longer time.

And since we mentioned baking soda, make a solution using half a cup of vinegar and half a cup of baking soda and pour it down a clogged or a smelly pipe. Cover it with a wet cloth, wait for five to ten minutes and then flush with hot water.
