Cleaning supplies are the difference between a safe home and germ-infested residence, but sometimes there’s more than meets the eye to these lovely products. If you’re used to only using oven cleaner on your oven or window washer on your glass, then you’re missing out. Read on for more tips on how to get the most out of your supplies.
Couch Cleaning and Bug Killing
Window washer fluid actually works great for both of these uses. Just one spray can eliminate stains on upholstery and get those pests away from stray crumbs on the ground or dusty corners in your home.
Ice Packs and Weed Eliminators
Liquid soap put in a seal-tight bag and popped in the freezer makes an ice pack that will last longer than pure water. A tablespoon combined with salt (one cup) and white vinegar (one gallon) can also be a weed killer for those sidewalk greens that continue sprouting up after every pull. Bonus: it can also be used to grease messy garage floors after you’ve had a particularly labor-intensive maintenance session or had an unexpected leak.
Clean Your Bathtub
While oven cleaner may get a starring role every once in a while during your cleaning sessions, you likely don’t use it very often. Instead of letting it sit around, use it on white porcelain tubs to get the stains out and get you back in a gleaming space to get clean. Just keep it in the tub so you don’t ruin your towels or shower curtain.
