4 Powerful Home Cleaning Hacks
Use these easy and effective hacks to keep your Morris/Ottawa home clean and operating well.
1) Clean Your Dishwasher With Kool-Aid
That’s right, Kook-Aid. Take a packet of lemonade-flavored Kool-Aid and empty it into the dish detergent compartment of your dishwasher. Next, run the dishwasher and let the Kool-Aid crystals polish the inside of your appliance.
2) Use Steam to Banish Kitchen Odors
If strong smells are lingering in your kitchen, use steam to kill the scent. Fill a pan with a cup of water and a few tablespoons of vinegar. Bring it to boil and let the mixture boil for several minutes. The steam will neutralize your bad kitchen odors.
3) Clean Your Baseboards Less Often
Next time you clean your baseboards, end the job by rubbing a dryer sheet over them. The antistatic properties of the dryer sheet will help keep dust and debris from sticking to them.
4)Clean Your Plastic Shower Curtains
Plastic shower curtains are a magnet for mildew, but cleaning them is easy. Just throw your shower curtain in the wash machine every month or two. Put your washer on delicate and add a load of towels, then remove it from the washer and hang it back up to dry. Don’t put it in the dryer; running it through a hot dryer will likely melt it.
