5 Tips and Tricks You Can Use Around Your Home
1. The Garbage Disposal
Garbage disposals can often times because smelly and unbearable. To get rid of this ungodly smell you can do one of three things. Or if you’re experiencing a really bad smell you can do all three of these things.
1.Pour baking soda inside it.
2. Put a lemon slice inside
3. Pour Sea Salt inside to help clean off bacteria that resides from old food.
2. The Dishwashing Sponge
A lot of people don’t know this but the sponge that you use to clean your dishes holds a lot of bacteria. Even after just one wash. After each load of dishes, all you need to do is pop that sponge in the microwave for two minutes on high. Although this does not replace the fact that you should be replacing your sponge every couple months, It will help kill the bacteria and help it last longer.
3. The Shower Door
Take a spray bottle filled with lemon juice and spray it on your shower doors after your shower. This will save you or your house cleaner a lot of time and energy trying to scrub off soap scum. You can also take a fresh lemon and rub it on the door if you don’t have a spray bottle handy.
4. Scrubbing The Toilet
Let’s face it, cleaning the toilet isn’t fun for anyone. Not even the maid. Take some white vinegar and pour it in around the edge just like you would regular toilet bowl cleaner. Let it sit overnight and in the morning, you can easily use your toilet brush to scrub it clean. (Helpful Hint: pour some white vinegar in the back of the toilet to help it stay cleaner longer.)
5. The Closet
Take some time and get rid of old clothes that you don’t wear anymore. This will keep your dresser drawers, your closet, and your room looking tidier than ever. Aside from cleaning out the closet, always put your clothes away when you grab them out of the dryer. Don’t wait. When you wait, that means they’ll probably be sitting in a basket for weeks adding unnecessary clutter you don’t need
