Tips for cleaning

87052ddb-a261-4de5-ae2d-5b837fe28f01

We started our new year with decluttrring   and organizing, and in the process we learned a few good tips for cleaning.

Laundry

For those impossible stains from butter, salad dressing, cooking oil, use white chalk or corn starch on the spot. Let it absorb the oil and launder as usual.

Bathroom

Remove stubborn stains around the faucet with vinegar. Soak paper towel or cloth in vinegar and wrap it around the stained faucet. Let it stand for several hours and rinse. Or with a tooth brush use a paste of vinegar and baking soda around the faucet.

Smelly helmets

Place it in a large ziplock bag and leave it in the freezer.  The subzero temperature will kill the bacteria causing the smell.

Table linens with candle wax 

place them in the freezer, when the wax spot gets hard just scrape it off.

Musty smell

Leave a box of open baking soda in the linen closet.
