Cleaning Tricks for the Neat Freaks

Kool-Aid

  1.  Vinegar:   Vinegar kills 99% of bacteria, 82% of mold, and 8% of viruses.  Click here for 50 uses for vinegar

2.  Natural residue remover:  Have a sticky mess?  Use 1/2 coconut oil and 1/2 baking soda.

3.  How to make your house smell amazing:  Put 2 caps full of vanilla extract in a coffee cup, then place it in the oven at 300 degrees for one hour.

4.  Use a sock to clean your blinds:  Mix vinegar and water in a bowl.  Put a sock on your hand and dip it in the vinegar mixture then wipe your blinds clean!

5.   Use lemonade Kool-Aid as a dishwasher cleaner:  Pour one packet where the detergent normally goes.  One packet will remove lime deposits and iron stains.

6.  Use wax paper to prevent water spots and finger prints:  Wax paper works great on stainless steel appliances.

7.  Remove toilet rings without scrubbing:  Take a piece of Mr. Cleans Magic Eraser and drop it in the toilet overnight.  You will wake up to no ring.

8.  Use fabric softeners to wipe your baseboards clean:  Swifter pads work great as well.

9.  Microwave your sponge for 2 minutes:  This kills most of the germs and bacteria growing on it.
