Sometimes an accident will catch you unprepared, leaving a huge mess on your hands. In this case the best course of action would be to contact a professional house cleaning company like Elite Cleaning. But if for some reason you have to clean the mess by yourself and with limited resources, here’s a few useful tips that could save you the trouble:
There’s Never Enough Baking Soda
Baking Soda is the queen of cleaning products – it almost feels like there’s nothing it couldn’t clean! Make your silverware and silver jewelry shine again with a mixture of baking soda and a bit of water. Store a bowl of baking soda in the fridge or a cupboard to absorb odors. You can save your burnt pans too! Add a little white vinegar and bring it to a boil. Then take the burnt cookware off the stove and add baking soda. It will be much easier to scour the pans and return them to their former glory. If you want to prevent bad odor from your kitty’s litter box, again, you know what to do – put some baking soda in it for no foul scents.
When life gives you lemons… Clean the faucets! Citric acid can help you remove stains and polish the faucets around the house. Also, use lemons and kitchen salt to clean your cutting board – just rub it all in and let it sit for a couple of minutes and you are good to go.
Toothpaste Isn’t Just for your Teeth
Use toothpaste to clean your engagement ring or to bring back old sneakers to life. Also, you can heal the scuff marks on your vinyl flooring, shoes or even cars. Use an old toothbrush or damp cloth for better results. Restore the 20/20 vision to your car headlights with a bit of toothpaste and a buffer pad. If you are dying your hair, use toothpaste to clean out the color stains from your face.
It’s Perfectly Suitable to use Alcohol Before Noon
Rubbing alcohol, that is. Use it as a hand sanitizer, or simply clean your combs and brushes by letting them soak in it for a couple of minutes.
Pro tip: Use a razor to remove paint residue or lint gunks on your clothes.
