The Best Kept Secrets in Cleaning!
Updated: May 22
Some cleaning challenges, such as laundry stains and dirty toilet bowls can be the toughest tasks to do.
We've gathered the proven solutions to tackling the tough tasks we face!
With these Professional-Approved cleaning tricks you'll know exactly what to reach for when fingerprints make an appearance on the refrigerator or what to do when grease stains threaten to ruin a blouse.
Are there fingerprints and smudges all over the fridge? Try using a drop of olive oil on a
paper towel to shine stainless steel to get rid of any fingerprints. This trick is magic.
A wet Brillo pad cleans soap scum and water spots off shower doors quickly and easily (and no, it won’t scratch the glass).
Keep a piece of white chalk in the laundry room to rub on grease stains and absorb the oil. Launder as usual and the piece should come out clean. This trick should work on butter, salad dressing, cooking oil, and more.
To clean glass, add a teaspoon of cornstarch to a cup of white vinegar and a cup of
water and the results are incredible! The glass becomes so shiny and crystal clear and the cornstarch helps work away grime and leave behind a streak-free shine.
After using the brush close the toilet seat on top of the toilet brush handle, so it can drip-dry into the bowl until dry before setting the brush back in its holder. A wet toilet bowl brush is unhygienic.
Water spots and mineral deposits on bathroom and kitchen taps and fixtures are tough to remove. Wet a paper towel or microfibre cloth with white vinegar and place over the deposits. Let it sit for a few minutes, then wipe away. Or pour the vinegar into an old, clean spray bottle to use as a spray for buffing. The acid in the vinegar breaks down the deposits, leaving your taps and fixtures shiny.
Using a wet pumice stone will naturally remove toilet rings and other stains. Make sure you wet the stone, as a dry one may scratch surfaces. If you really want to deep clean the bowl, first put a cup of baking soda in, let it sit for a few minutes, then brush and follow that with the pumice stone trick for good measure.
