For busy people on the run, here are four hacks to home cleaning that are simple and effective.
1. Boil To Disinfect
Boiling things can remove diseases-causing germs which may spread when you just wash them.
You don’t have to spend money on costly wipes and disinfectants.
Try washing clothes, towels or bedsheets in hot water after someone has been ill.
Disinfect toys, clothes, or general things round the home with hot soapy water. Just be careful of the type of plastics you use – some may be prone to melting due due to heat.
2. Lemon & Baking Soda
Clean table tops with a spritz of combined lemon juice and baking soda. Wipe off and it will be clean and shiny.
3. Non-Smelling Alcohol
Use cheap vodka to remove smells around the house or your clothes.
Pour the vodka undiluted into a spray bottle for easy application. Adding water will only lessen the alcohol’s odor-removing power.
4. Lanolin and Petroleum Jelly
Over low heat, pour 1/4 cup lanolin and 1 cup petroleum jelly in a double boiler to concoct a recipe that helps prevent rusting of tools, furniture, metal objects.
