Getting your faucets clean and shining can be a difficult task.
Cut a lemon in half and use it to tackle the marks left by hard water on all your faucets. The citric acid in the lemon will completely get rid of the marks while leaving a fresh, enticing scent behind. Your new house cleaning skills will draw flattering attention.
The other half of the lemon is for your microwave.
Heat the lemon rinds and juice in water. Now cut another lemon in half, squeeze out the juice and mix it with 1/2 cup of water. Put the lemon rinds into the water as well. Microwave the mixture for three minutes then let it sit for an additional five minutes. Do not open your microwave during this time. The grime will be loosened by the trapped steam. You can easily wipe down your microwave and it will look like new.
Showerhead buildup can be absolutely disgusting and reduce the water pressure. These mineral deposits can dissolved with vinegar. Take a plastic bag and fill it with white vinegar. Use a rubber band to secure the bag to the showerhead. Let is sit overnight and it will eliminate the buildup. Then simply toss away the bag and enjoy a refreshing shower.
This tip comes from Richard Li, of Mythical Maids San Francisco, “Another good house cleaning tip is using baking soda to clean a stainless steel sink. First wet the sink, then sprinkle it with baking soda. Use a sponge to scrub the sink for a beautiful shine. If the sink is badly stained add a little salt to the baking soda.”
Dirty mirrors and windows can be cleaned by combining 2 cups of water, 1/4 cup of white vinegar and 2 teaspoons of any kind of liquid soap. Use a spray bottle for the mixture and grab a newspaper. Spray the mixture onto the glass and use the newspaper to scrub it clean. The ink functions like an abrasive and leaves mirrors and windows clean and free of streaks.
Rotating turntables are an effective organizational tool for your cabinets and refrigerator.
Throw away any old spices, condiments or expired food. Remove everything from the cabinet so you can wipe it down. Then put in the turntable. You cabinet will be well organized and you will find what you need much faster.
