The modern home today is a difficult one to process sometimes. People have to juggle work, social lives, and then throw in kids into the mix and things really get difficult to manage. Cleaning can cause some serious nightmares, and well, it’s a tough job. If you aren’t keen on cleaning, or have been putting it off because it’s a bit difficult to manage, don’t panic. The following tips and tricks will help you get things cleaner, faster.
Cleaning The Microwave
The microwave can take a beating from daily use. You’ll find that splatters tell the tale of all sorts of foods that you’ve tried to bring into the mix. If you’re going to clean this without too much stress, then focus on this simple plan. Mix water and vinegar and put it into a bowl. Two cups should do it. Then put this in the microwave and let it run for 5 minutes. You’ll find that you can clean the dirt and grime by simply wiping the interior after this cycle finishes up.
The Garbage Disposal Problem
Garbage disposals can take on a whole new smell. If you want to clean things up a bit use half a cup of baking soda mixed with half a cup of vinegar. Mix this up and then drop it into the disposal and then run hot water and clear things up a bit. Within 5 minutes you’ll have a brand new, easy smelling disposal without having to worry.
The Rubber Glove Trick
For pet owners, consider getting a pair of rubber gloves. This is going to help you pick up stray hair from surfaces. You’ll wet the gloves and simply use them to pick up hair that is around different areas of your home. You’ll be surprised how simple this works and how the rubber gloves pick up stray hair, and elements that you would normally have to spend a lot of time vacuuming or using brushes to pick up.
The Grease On The Floor
Your kitchen’s flooring gets a lot of traffic, and with that comes oil and grease. Cooking, walking, and letting things settle can be tough to deal with. You can clean up the floors by simply mixing baking soda and water in a ratio of 3:1 and use that to clean the floor. You’ll find that the grease and oil elements will lift up fast, and you’ll have clean floors fast.
Bleach Versus Mold In The Shower
One last tip that you will want to consider is simple, clean mold in your shower grout with bleach. Use cotton coils and soak them in bleach a bit and then put them along the grout and leave them for a few hours in place. After a few hours, you can take them off, and splash them with water, and you’ll have clean, mold-free grout.
