There’s a lot more to cleaning than the average person knows. If you want to learn some efficient cleaning tips or learn how to save money in your cleaning routine, these 5 cleaning tips are just for you!
- Don’t break the bank
You might have seen commercials about cleaning solutions or maybe you’ve met a really convincing salesperson that you think cleaning solutions are the only thing that can get rid of stains and dirt.
While it’s true that they work well, you don’t necessarily need them. Maybe the perfect cleaning solution you’ll ever need is right there in your kitchen. There are a lot of household items that can clean up stains such as baking soda mixed with water, vinegar, or even lemon water.
- Ketchup for cleaning copper
As previously mentioned, there are a lot of household items that can be used for certain situations. For cleaning copper, you can actually use ketchup to regain the shine the copper once had. If you live in a house where you have a lot of copper like in furniture, door knobs, handles, pots, or pans, then maybe you can give this one a try and see those copper items shine.
- Toothpaste isn’t only for teeth
You would be amazed by how much toothpaste can help you in cleaning things other than your teeth. Toothpaste can be used to clean pesky rings left by your morning coffee. You can also use toothpaste to clean your faucet fixtures and other chrome items. A little toothpaste will also add a little shine to your silverware and it can even be used to clean dirty sneakers to give them their original look.
- A different use for vodka
This tip is perfect for those who happen to have some vodka lying around. It turns out that you can use vodka to clean porcelain. Give those porcelain plates a good cleaning then maybe you can celebrate a little if you have some left.
- Prevention is better than the cure
This rule is just as good when it comes to cleaning as it is to health. Maintaining cleanliness is a generally better tactic than waiting for things to get dirty first. You should set a date in your calendar to for periodic cleaning of things that don’t have to be cleaned everyday like the pillows and comforters. When was the last time you’ve had your pillows cleaned? We don’t mean just the pillowcases but the actual pillows. Also, cleaning things periodically as opposed to cleaning only when things get dirty tend to be easier and cheaper than the latter.
