Practical Home Tips – Easy Solutions (4)
We’re back with the fourth chapter in the practical home tips series to inspire you in the clean-up efforts over the weekend with new simple solutions for old problems. This time we’ll see how car wax can help us cleaning in the bathroom or how a few pieces of chalk can keep the cutler sparkling as if brand new. Here are more practical home tips in the article below, as seen on Realsimple.com.
Are you sick of seeing rust or lime build-up on faucets, sinks, tile, even shower doors? Go open your car trunk and find the solution right there without buying any miraculous cleaning stuff. Polish them all with Turtle Wax, which leaves behind a protective barrier against water and soap buildup, so your hard-earned sparkle will last past the next tooth-brushing.
Cutlery, especially silverware, lose that luster over time due to various external factors, such as moisture. In this case, slow the tarnish on your good silver by tying up a few moisture-absorbing pieces in cheesecloth and store them with your cutlery for shinier flatware that reflects well on you in no time flat.
For those passionate people, crazy about romantic evenings by candlelight, cleaning the candle holder may be a bit of a trouble which risks overturning all the benefits of the evening full of desire. To get away easier, spray the inside of a votive holder with a thin coating of cooking spray before dropping in a tea light. After the candle has burned down, the remaining wax will slip out if you turn the holder upside down.
Use the same cooking spray to spray both sides of a plastic or metal shovel you use to clear snow off the driveway. The oily surface will help you remove snow way faster.
Long nails make cleaning efforts in the bathroom using rubber gloves a real nightmare. For leak-resistant gloves at your fingertips, push one cotton ball into the end of each finger of a dishwashing glove to keep sharp nails from splitting the rubber. Gloves are now easier to maneuver and cleaning comes to a quicker end.
