6 Cleaning Hacks That Don’t Cost A Thing

Compare Guru
2017-01-20
January’s a tough month for everybody. Because of this, we thought you could use some affordable cleaning hacks. Check it out!
It's a normal night in front of the TV. You watch the lady in the infomercial clean a window, floor, or spill effortlessly with a shiny new cleaning gadget. "Well sure, I could clean that well too if I had a fancy, expensive cleaning tool!" But, cleaning does not necessarily have to be expensive and, often, products lying around the house can help your surfaces gleam brighter than that saleslady's smile. Banner_2HR_Free_300x250_v2

Cleaning Hacks That Don't Require You To Even Leave The House

1. Murky Taps

Cut a lemon in half and rub it all over the tap faucet to remove limescale. Continue until shiny and clean. cleaning hacks, cleaning, lemon, tap, faucet, clean

2. Oil Or Nail Polish Spills On The Carpet

To remove a difficult oil or nail polish stain on a carpet, first blot until all excess has been removed. Be careful to not spread the stain further. Apply a small amount of rubbing alcohol to a clean cloth or paper towel. Press the rubbing alcohol onto the stained carpet. After doing so, thoroughly let the carpet dry. If the oil stain is still visible, repeat the process using more rubbing alcohol. Rubbing alcohol is a solvent, which means it helps to dissolve the oil and separates it from the carpet fibres. removing nail polish from a carpet, cleaning hacks

3. Build Up In Your Iron

One thing you will start to realise is that when it comes to most cleaning hacks, white vinegar is usually involved. For a dirty soleplate on an iron, mix equal parts white vinegar and salt in a saucepan and heat until almost boiling. Dip a clean cloth into the vinegar mix and then scrub the soleplate clean. For the build up in the iron's steam vents, use the same mixture with the assistance of an ear-bud to remove dirt. Rinse with distilled water to extract the salt. To clean an iron's water reservoir, fill it one-quarter to one-half of the way with white vinegar and turn on to the highest heat setting. Steam iron a cloth until the reservoir is empty and rinse with distilled water. cleaning hacks, cleaning a dirty iron

4. Bacteria-Ridden Wooden Chopping Boards

The reality of bacteria living in your chopping board is something not a lot of us spend our time thinking about. The truth is, how many times do you use your chopping board in just one meal? You could slice some raw chicken and then, moments later, slice a tomato on that very same board, which leads to cross-contamination for one. To clean your wooden chopping board, sanitise it with a lemon half, making sure you rub the lemon on all parts of the board. Next, use sea salt to scrub away at any resistant bacteria that may require force to remove. 01lemon

5. Dirty Sneakers

Yes, it really works! Simply use an old toothbrush and apply the toothpaste to the whites of your sneakers. Scrub it gently to remove any dirt and watch it shine and brighten. Definitely worth a try before you give your sneakers the chuck! toothpaste on shoes
