Best Cleaning Tips
Save money and go green by making DIY cleaners from pantry items. Plus, learn how to save time with our expert cleaning tips.
Clean the dishwasher trap to remove buildup
Under the lower sprayer, you’ll find a piece that’s removable. In it, you may see bits of food and other buildup (you’d be surprised what doesn’t go completely down the drain!). Rinse the tray in the sink, or use a towel to remove the gunk.
Clean the dishwasher
Deep clean the dishwasher by placing a measuring cup filled with 2 cups of vinegar in the top rack. Just as vinegar can clean and descale a coffeemaker, it can also remove grime from your dishwasher when you run a normal cycle with two cups of vinegar. Don’t use detergent or heat dry when you do this.
Use Lemons To Remove Hard Water Stains
Rub the lemon half on the problem areas affected by limescale. Let the juice sit on there for five to ten minutes, then rinse with warm water.
Cover up Scratches on Leather Furniture Using Olive Oil
Dab some olive oil onto a cotton cloth and rub it into the scratched area using a light, circular motion. Allow the oil to dry for an hour, then wipe it off with a clean cloth.
Use A Vinegar Solution
Use A Vinegar Solution Or An Angry Mama To Clean Your Microwave. If you are looking for an easier, scrub-free way to clean your microwave then this is it. You can use a vinegar and water solution in a microwave safe bowl to steam clean your microwave or you can purchase an Angry Mama which will conveniently help steam away hardened food and other microwave junk in seconds.
Fill Your Washing Machine With Hot Water And Add A Quart Of Bleach. When was the last time you actually deep cleaned your washing machine? Jillee shows you how with her amazingly simple 4 step method to cleaning hers.
First, she completes one full cycle using only bleach to clean and sanitize. Then she runs a second cycle with vinegar to help dissolve soap scum and grime. Next she uses scrubbing pads to clean around the washer’s drum.
Clean the Exhaust Fan
If the grille on your bathroom exhaust fan is clogged with dust, try a trick that’s faster and more effective than vacuuming. Turn on the fan and blast out the dust with canned air. The fan will blow the dust outside. This works on the return air grilles of your central heating/cooling system too.
Run the system so that the return airflow will carry the dust to the filter. You’ll find canned air at home centers and hardware stores, usually in the electrical supplies aisle.
Clean the Air While You Clean the House
Your vacuum’s agitator brush and exhaust whip up dust that eventually settles on the surfaces you’ve just cleaned. Filter out some of that dust before it settles by switching your thermostat to fan on. This turns on the blower inside your furnace and filters the air even while the system isn’t heating or cooling.
Leave the blower on for about 15 minutes after you’re done cleaning. But don’t forget to switch it back to ‘auto.’ Most blowers aren’t designed to run constantly.
