Easy Habits to Save Yourself Work

Posted on May 23, 2010. Filed under: Uncategorized |

Here are some easy habits that will save you some serious elbow grease later on:

(1)  place a couple of dryer sheets – even used ones will work – in the bottom of the trash can to absorb spills and odors

(2)  switch to liquid soap (Dr. Bronners Peppermint is my favorite) or glycerin bar soap because the binding agents in traditional bar soaps are one of the main causes of soap scum and contribute to clogged drains

(3)  run the bathroom exhaust fan or open the window while you shower and for about 10 minutes after to prevent mildew

(4)  line your oven with an inexpensive liner so the inevitable spills will not have to lead to use of the dreaded toxic oven cleaner

(5)  wipe down the walls and glass shower doors with a small squeegee to curb soap scum

(6)  eradicate hard water stains in toilets by pouring in a cup of  white vinegar once a month.  Let it sit overnight and then flush
