Cleaning Tricks & Life Hacks
We can all agree that there are certain household cleaning tasks or stubborn greasy, grimy messes that make us want to throw in the dish towel. To name a few, bathtub soap scum, muffin tins, carpet stains and that microwave that seems to have spatter marks seconds after you’ve just wiped it out. It is frustrating! There are tons of tricks and tips readily available for you at the click of a button so you don’t have to spend hours cleaning windows and scrubbing toilets. Perfection Cleaning is an advocate for working smart, not hard so we are going to share some great life hacks to assist with those deep cleaning jobs.
Here’s a hint: go purchase some vinegar and baking soda, they are both great cleaning agents and safe to use.
Carpet Cleaning Magic
1. Scrape up the liquid (I had already done this weeks ago).
2. Sprinkle baking soda or cornstarch on stain to let absorb for 10 minutes and then vacuum.
3. Mix one tablespoon clear dishwashing liquid and one tablespoon white vinegar with two cups of warm water.
4. Using a white cloth sponge the stain with the detergent/vinegar solution and blot until all the liquid is absorbed.
5. Sponge off with cold water and blot dry.
Keep Base Boards Cleaner
Wipe down all your baseboards with fabric softener sheets, not only do they smell great but they collect dust as well as leave a protective coat to reduce residual dust.
Sparkling Clean Toilets
Leave a cup of baking soda inside the toilet for an hour then flush, it will clean your toilet as well as absorb odor. Here’s 75 other uses for Baking Soda.
Clean Muffin Tins & Cookie Sheets
What you’ll need:
• Bon Ami powder
• Aluminum Foil – crumpled up
• Paper towels
• Water to make a paste
Sprinkle the Bon Ami, add water to a paper towel, rub the powder and paper towel all over your pan or sheet, rub the crumpled tin foil all over the pan and finally… rinse with soap and water!!
