Using a Dishwasher Tablet to Clean The Oven
The modest dishwasher tablet turns out to be capable of much more than just dishwashing. We adore it as an oven cleaning gadget. And toilets are included. I’m serious.
Unclog Faucet Heads with Vinegar
If you live anywhere with rough water, you can notice that your kitchen sink faucet or even your shower head becomes clogged from time to time. Simply soak the faucet in vinegar and then turn it on. It’ll go away on its own.
Dish soap squirted down the drain.
Is your drain taking a long time to, well, drain? Run the hot water and squirt a little dish soap down there. Dish soap is designed to get rid of grease. Grease is seen chiefly on your dishes and cookware, but it can also build up in your drains and pipes.
Clean the Outside of Your Stained Dutch Oven With Oven Cleaner
Oven cleaner can clean cooked-on grease and other sticky residues from the exterior of enamel Dutch ovens without compromising the color or finish.
Make Your Cleaning Caddy More Functional by Adding a Steamer
A steamer is designed to de-wrinkle the clothing, but it can also be used to scrub grimy stovetops, cabinet doors, and other surfaces quickly.
Take a corner of the sponge and cut it off.
Do you remember how you used a sponge to clean your dishes? And what about the other sponge you use to clean the walls? This clever trick will help you remember which one is which: Simply cut the corner of the sponge you’ll be using for the dirty work off.
Place a Cotton Ball in the Garbage Can
Garbage has a foul odor. It’s an unavoidable fact of life. But there’s a way to make things smell a bit less stale — or at least stale in a positive way. Drop a cotton ball in your bin after soaking it in essential oil (underneath the liner or the bag). It’s a cheap and straightforward odor-control solution that helps prevent your garbage from smelling too strong.
Add Vinegar In The Dishwasher
If you reside near a region where the water is hard, you’re probably fed up with dirty-looking dishes coming out of your dishwasher. Fill the dishwasher with vinegar and a right-side-up tub. Run the dishwasher — the vinegar can help counteract the rough water, resulting in spotless dishes.
Have a look at the Laundry Basket Method.
If you have little stacks of junk all over the house, a laundry basket (you can get a cheap one from the dollar store) is a great way to consolidate everything. If you’re in a rush (say, because a company is coming), just hide the laundry basket; if you have time, stroll around with the laundry basket and return it to its proper place.
Clean Your Microwave with Lemon
Here’s how you go about it:
- In a measuring cup or tub, pour around 1/2 cup of water.
- Squeeze the lemon juice into the water after slicing it in half.
- Place the lemon halves in the mixing cup.
- Place the bowl in the microwave and cook on high for three minutes or before the liquid boils.
- Allow for a five-minute rest period.
- Do not open the microwave door; the trapped steam will aid in the loosening of food gunk. You shouldn’t scrub it off until the timer goes off!
