Interesting House Cleaning Tips:

Make Your House Cleaning Fun With These Interesting Ideas

For Christmas I'm putting together a new house cleaning ebook. As part of the process. As part of the process, I've found some interesting cleaning tips. Maybe you already use them.

  • Each night sprinkle little salt and wash it down your sink and drain with a cup of hot water. This is the best way to sort the problem of a slow moving drain and it also prevents clogging.

  • For sparkling taps in the bathrooms, dab some baby oil on cotton and wipe the surfaces. The trick is sure to leave clean and shiny taps.

  • Sprinkle little salt on paper and run your hot iron over this to get rid of the sticky residue left on the face of the iron box after ironing.

  • Hair sprays are ideal for removing lipstick marks from clothes. Spray some on the stained area and leave it for 10 minutes. Rub the area with a damp sponge and launder the clothing normally.

  • For cleaning glass, you can use used crumpled aluminum foil dipped in warm soap water solution. The glass surfaces will sparkle and it is also one way of recycling the foils.

  • Keep few pieces of chalk in your steel cutlery. It slows the tarnishing process.

  • Drop some eggshells into the bottle or flower vases while cleaning them. Water and dishwashing liquid swirled with eggshells is great for removing the sticky residues in bottles which are sometimes hard to reach and clean.

  • Discolored edges from coffee and tea mugs can be easily removed by smearing a paste of baking soda and water on it for 15-20 minutes. Salt sprinkled on orange and lemon peels, and rubbed on the edges, also does the job easily.

  • The white clothes will remain white if few drops of lemon are occasionally added to the washer while washing the whites.

  • Use damp rubber gloves to handpick pet hairs from cushions. The fur easily sticks to the rubber gloves, which can then be washed down the drain, with a catcher.

  • Permanent markers will not be permanent anymore on the walls when rubbed with cotton dipped in alcohol.

  • An ideal way to clean the coffeemaker or tea kettle is to mix vinegar in water and bring the solution to boil in the container a couple of times, followed by a thorough rinse.
