Some Useful Cleaning Tips Every Homeowner Should Know

You too can have a life of clean and ordered bliss at your home. Make a note of the following tips to clean your home efficiently.

Brilliant Bathroom Surface Cleaning
Take 1 2/3 cups baking-soda and mix it with 1/2 cup liquid soap in a bowl. Add half a cup of water to dilute the mixture and pour 2 tablespoons white vinegar also into the bowl. Stir the mixture well with a fork to form a fine solution. Transfer the liquid from the bowl to a spray bottle. Close the bottle with its cap and shake well before use. Now spray the liquid as necessary on the bathroom surfaces and scrub with a nylon-backed sponge. Once the stains, soap scum and mildew have been dissolved, rinse the area with water and see a sparkling bathroom.

You can also use ammonia for cleaning the yellowing white tiles (discoloration caused due to wax build up) on the walls of the bathroom. Use a mixture of 1 cup ammonia added into 2 litres of water. Scrub the tiles with a scouring pad till all the traces of wax are removed and finally rinse with water.

The problem with cleaning shower tiles that have lots of nooks and crannies is that some of the cleaning solution often stays stuck there. You can easily manage this situation using a toothbrush to scrub those little nooks as needed.

How to Keep Clean Your Fridges/Freezers
Get your fridge sparkling clean and smelling fresh with a solution of equal parts of water and white vinegar to wash both its interior and exterior. Another option is to try cleaning the refrigerator with a mixture of two tablespoons of baking soda and a quart of warm water. Did you know that white toothpaste can be used to clean deep stains in your fridge?

The plastic handles on the refrigerator are used frequently and sometimes they turn yellow. Try using a baking-soda paste to re-whiten the handle.

Quick Benchtop Cleaning
Sprinkle some baking-soda onto the bench top surface and rub with a damp cloth to bring back the sine and sheen.

For Burnt Black Marks on Your Iron
Scrub the mark firmly with a baking-soda paste to remove the black stuff.  You can also try to get rid of the black patches of burnt cloth fibre and dirt on your iron by scrubbing it with white vinegar and a Dobie Pad.

The baking-soda paste also can be used to slough off stains on your plastic cutting boards. Try this method also: Sprinkle rock salt on a cut lemon and rub it on the stubborn stains. 
Make a paste using two tablespoons of salt and one teaspoon of white distilled vinegar and use it for scrubbing your chrome sink to get that extra shine. 

How to Clean Mirrors and Glass Windows
Mix one part vinegar and one part water in 16-ounce squirt bottle. Add 2 teaspoons each of corn starch and rubbing alcohol into the bottle along with 8 drops of citrus oil. Close the bottle with cap. Shake it thoroughly and squirt on mirrors and windows, and scrub with old newspapers.  You are sure to get a good shine.

Tricks for Removing Dried Nail Polish from Carpet
Look for a product that is acetone free nail polish remover to dissolve and lift off the polish stain from your carpet. Apply the polish remover on to the affected area and dab at the stain with clean paper towels. That should do it for you.

The vinegar magic mentioned for fridges can be applied to clean your carpets too! Take a mixture of 2 tablespoons salt dissolved in half cup white vinegar and apply it on light stains on the carpet. You need to add 2 tablespoons borax to the mixture if the stain is deep and darker. Wait for some time for the solution to dry, and then vacuum the carpet.
