CLEANING TIPS

Bathroom

  • Buildup on shower doors: Wipe with lemon oil. Removes buildup and keeps doors protected longer from future buildup.

  • If not properly maintained, chrome fixtures can become dull and cloudy. After cleaning a bathroom  you want your chrome fixtures to sparkle! For blinding brilliance, make a paste of baking soda and dishwashing liquid. Apply this to your chrome fixtures and rub clean with a cloth. Warm vinegar will also make your bathroom shine. Here's an additional bathroom cleaning tip: To clean stains from your bathroom chrome and tile, use baby oil! Wipe off with a cloth diaper for a lint free shine.

  • Removing mildew from shower or bath: 3 parts bleach and 1 part water -- put in spray bottle. Spray on mildew areas and it will virtually disappear.

Kitchen

  • For more effective dishwashing, add a few tablespoons of vinegar along with the dishwashing detergent when washing dishes. The vinegar cuts the grease and leaves dishes sparkling. 

  • To keep your plastic containers from getting stained from tomato based foods, rub the inside with vegetable oil before placing the food in the container.

  • To whiten an old stained sink, poor a half cup of salt in it and then scrub it with a lemon. Let it stand for a few minutes and rinse.

 Laundry

  • Gray Dingy clothes: One cause of the gray dingies is overloading the washing machine. When you do this, the clothes cannot move freely, resulting in poor washing and irremovable soil. To estimate the right-sized load, place dry, unfolded clothes in the washer loosely until it is about three-quarters full. Another cause is using non-phosphate detergents, particularly the granular type. If you're using a non-phosphate detergent, use the hottest water possible and dissolve the detergent in the water before adding the clothes. If you have hard water, you might want to add about a third to a half cup of packaged water softener along with the detergent.

 Windows

  • Take an old spray bottle, make sure itís nice and clean, and then fill it with 1 cup of vinegar, 1 teaspoon of dishwashing liquid, and water. (Donít question itóit works!) No streaks and no smell and of course, no harm if it lands on your arm! For doing outdoor windows, I fill the mixture in a bucket and use it to clean the patio. It does a fabulous job.

 Walls

  • Removing Crayon from walls: use damp sponge and Colgate toothpaste. Rub carefully.

  • Removing scuff marks, pen, and pencil from walls: use a dry cloth and rubbing alcohol.
