Continuing with our simple, quick, and efficient household cleaning tips, we have some more tricks to maintain cleanliness and freshness of your home that can be done in just a few minutes. Cleaning your home can be very time consuming, especially if you work all day and have to care for kids in the evening. There are some easy tricks though you can do to help keep parts of your home clean that are simpler than you would believe. The following tips focus on the stove top as that is one of the most used appliances in the home.
Especially for families that cook a lot, the stove grates can get covered in grease and oil. This does not look good and it is very tough to clean off. Most people cover rags with grease while trying to scrub them clean, or load them in the dishwasher, which helps but doesn’t always seem like all the grease is off. If you have large ziploc bags and regular ammonia, you can clean them better than ever. Simply put 1/4 cup of ammonia in the ziploc bag with the grates, and let them sit overnight. There’s no need to soak them in ammonia; the fumes from it will break down the oils and grease, allowing you to wipe it off easier than ever and leaving them look brand new.
If you have wood furniture in your home, you have probably noticed after putting hot food down or a heated beverage, white marks begin to appear on the wood. You may begin to worry as the wood looks damaged and unrepairable. When condensation, usually from steam, gets under the finish, white spots begin to appear on the wood. The only things you need are some linen napkins or a cotton towel, and an iron, to get rid of the marks. Put the towel down, turn the iron on medium and the steam setting on. After moving the iron around on the cloth for a minute or two, you will see the white marks disappear. When you’re done, apply a light coating of olive oil for the finish, and your wooden furniture will look good as new.
Parts of your home that initially looks severely damaged or very disgusting can easily be fixed. There are so many Pro Tips and little household cleaning agents that can fix almost anything. These two tricks are important for everyone, as most people use the stove and have some kind of wooden furniture in their home. Don’t spend a fortune having a furniture repair man come out, or cover your sink and dishwasher with grease trying to clean the stove grates; these simple tricks can save you a lot of money and time.Posted by
