Nadia’s House Cleaning Offers Hacks & Tips On Keeping Your House Clean During the Week
Dryer Sheets to Clean Bathtub: When you are done folding a load of laundry that pesky dryer sheet seems to be sitting there. Most people grab it up and toss it in the nearest trash can. Although their original purpose has been used in the dryer they have a great cleaning aspect as well. Take a few of these used or new dryer sheets in the bathroom with you and after a shower use them to wash away hard water spots. They work great on shower doors, bathtubs, toilet rings, walls and even mirrors.
Cleaning Your Microwave: If you open your microwave and notice there are some crusty spots from heating up last night’s dinner you might just close it and come back to it later. The problem is that later can become never but there is a great tip to get it clean with ease. Get a microwave safe bowl and add a half cup of water and half cup of ammonia. You want to lay a wooden mixing spoon and the bowl in the microwave and allow it to go on high for about five minutes. Once you open it up use a wash cloth to quickly wipe off the surfaces and it will be clean as new.
Disinfect Kitchen Sponge: When you go to grab a sponge and do the washing up after dinner you might smell some funky mildew odor. The odor is coming from the sponge and no matter how hard you try it seems to always happen. The best thing you can do is to throw the sponge in with the dishwashing cycle. The cycle will sanitize the sponge and kill the germs that are causing bacteria to grow. If you are in a pinch you can also toss the sponge in a bowl and in the microwave for about five minutes.
Baking Soda Absorbs Odors in a Room: If you feel like you have a problem with odors that linger on your couches and carpets there is a quick fix. When you are ready to take on a five minute task grab baking soda and sprinkle it on the surface that you are concerned about. Then use the vacuum to pick up the baking soda that has been able to pull out the moisture that is actually the odor causing item.
