Spring cleaning is something that most people undertake at one time or another. Here?s some tips and short cuts that will make the job less arduous.
Tip 1 - small fingers are mucky fingers, and whether its mud, jam or soot from their regular young kids leave their mark where you least expect it. Get rid of those unsightly smudges by wiping with a damp cloth dipped in white vinegar to remove any trace of digits
Tip 2 when your little angel is developing their artistic abilities on your walls and doors, don?t Scream with despair. Pick up your old toothbrush and toothpaste and scrub it on to the dreaded doodle. Toothpaste acts as an abrasive and will banish those scribbles.
Tip 3 -. It doesn?t take long before the bottom of your new iron is covered with burnt-in brown stains. Head for the fruit bowl, cut a lemon in half and rub the lemon juice over the marks. Wipe off with a cloth to remove and put and end to those unsightly marks smearing your clean clothes.
Tip 4 - Your bathroom can be a hot and steamy incubator for mold and mildew. You?ve watched in despair as the grout between the tiles turns a greeny orange colour in the humidity. get out that baking soda, mix with water until it becomes a paste. Reach for your old toothbrush once again to scrub the paste onto the grout. Marvel as the original colour returns.
Tip 5 - simply tear up your newspaper, screw up the pages, and tip some vinegar on to them. The acidity of the newsprint ink combined with the vinegar can clean your windows, leaving them sparkling and smear free.
Tip 6 - there?s nothing worse than a wet bottom when it comes to your tea mug, as the heat will leave tell tale white rings on your stylish smoked glass table tops. Banish the unsightly marks by grabbing a jar of mayonnaise and rub it onto the ring mark. Leave to permeate the surface overnight, wipe off the next day, and the rings will be a thing of the past.
Tip 7 - constant use will leave your toilet bowl with unsightly stubborn stains. Banish those ugly marks using a popular soft drink ? a can of cola. Tip the contents down the pan, leave to digest for an hour, then flush to discover a sparkling clean loo.
