ITEMS YOU'VE PROBABLY BEEN CLEANING WRONG
Added on: 18th Nov 2016
Blinds are a thing we often forget to clean and if we don’t,
we just usually wipe it with a cloth. But there is more
effective way of cleaning blinds. Soak an old sock in a
mixture of vinegar and warm water, slip it on your hand
and start wiping. Using this technique, all the dirt gets removed.
Don’t shred dish sponges (or your knuckles for that matter)
while trying to clean your cheese grater. To remove grated
cheese, grate a piece of a potato. The oxalic acid of the
potato will remove the cheese debris immediately.
Don’t bother with scrubbing your sneakers´ soles with soap
and a cloth. If you want the bottom part of your shoes to be
as white and clean as it was when they were new,
rub some toothpaste on them.
If your guaranteed tricks to clean tarnished silver jewels
don’t work, try this one. Bring a litre of water, baking soda
and a piece of aluminium foil to a boil, put the silver items
in it and let it sit there for about 30 seconds. Then,
remove it and enjoy your brand-new-like silverware.
CAST IRON PAN
Scrub it with a mixture of coarse salt and water. It will help you
remove even the most stubborn food residues
clung to the pan´s surface.
Rinsing your toothbrush after usage is not enough. The bacteria
still thrive there. To get rid of them, give your toothbrush
a bath in a cup with a mixture of vinegar and water.
Don’t forget to rinse it after.
Shaking your toaster is far from what a proper cleaning of this
appliance should look like. To clean the inside, first make
sure your toaster is unplugged. Pull out the crumb drawer
and remove the crumbs located inside (older toasters may
not have crumb drawers). Scrub the outside of a toaster
with a mixture of water and some tartar cream.
It will look amazing again.
Dusting furniture with the feather duster may look easy and
comfortable but the only thing it actually does is throwing
the dust particles in the air. If you use a dryer sheet,
not only will it remove the dust but its anti-static
properties will prevent the dust from
collecting in future too.
