Cleaning Tips for your Kitchen and Bathrooms

Posted on January 27, 2010. Filed under: Uncategorized |

Tip # 1 – Remove soap scum and water spots.

To remove soap scum and water spots in your shower, use a microfiber cloth and wipe white vinegar onto the shower walls. The acid in the vinegar will help dissolve the alkaline soap scum quickly and the microfiber is made up of hundreds of little loops which grab onto and hold dirt.

Tip # 2 – Spillproof your refridgerator

In the kitchen you can spillproof your fridge. Line your shelves with aluminum foil or wax paper so that when the soy sauce tips over you can just replace the foil without any cleaning!

Tip #  3- Make washing greasy dishes a snap.

To make washing a sinkful of greasy dishes a snap, fill a 24 oz bottle half full with water and add 1/4 cup of distilled white vinegar with a couple of drops of dish soap. After you scrape the dishes off, simply spritz them with the solution and let them sit for a minute or so.

By the time you are ready to wash, the grease and food bits will have dissolved. A bonus is that you can preclean your dishes without running the water, which is good both for the environment and your water bill.

Tip # 4 – Soak up stovetop grease.

To soak up grease on a stovetop shake some baking soda on it. It will absorb the grease so that you can easily wipe it away!

Tip #5 – A low-cost odor absorber

Newspaper is a great odor absorber. Try putting a few sheets in the bottom of the garbage can.
