Tricks For Keeping Your Home Clean

October 7, 2013 - Updated: October 7, 2013

In the Kitchen:


Are your white appliances yellowing?

Wash with a mixture of 1 part baking soda, 1 part bleach, and 8 parts water.


Are your stainless steel appliances not-so-stainless?

Wipe down water marks with either rubbing alcohol or a sheet of fabric softener.


Do you have film inside your dishwasher?

Take any metal utensils out of the dishwasher, fill half a bowl with bleach, put it on the bottom rack, and run a wash cycle. Add vinegar to the bowl and run a full cycle.


Stains burnt onto your stove-top?

Give it a good wipe with some rubbing alcohol.


Tea and coffee stains on your counter?

Mix baking soda with water and apply the mixture over-top. Let it sit for 20 minutes and wipe. An alternative would be to sprinkle salt and spray with vinegar.



In the Bathroom:


Mold on your bathtub?

Rubbing with vinegar might do the trick!


Want to keep your shower walls shiny?

Wash them first and then apply car wax on the tiles.


Can’t get stubborn grime off your bathtub?

Borax and a scrub will do wonders.


Lime deposits on showerheads?

Soak the showerhead in a mixture of baking soda and vinegar.



For Everywhere Else:


White heat stains on your wood furniture?

Rub toothpaste over the spot, wipe with a damn cloth, and repeat if necessary. Another option would be to layer some petroleum jelly on top and leave for 2 days.


Need to get stains out of the carpet?

Apply foaming shaving cream and blot. Rinse with water.


Does your carpet need deodorizing?

Sprinkle baking soda, let it sit for an hour, and then vacuum.
