7 Household Cleaning Hacks
From mess to fresh
Give Your Furniture a Blowout
That blow dryer does wonders for more than your hair. To get rid of rings on a wood table, turn your dryer up to high and blast the spot until it begins to fade.
Manicure Your Microwave
To clean a hard-to-reach mess in your microwave, fill a bowl with white vinegar and place it in the center of the microwave. Close the door and run it for five minutes. Wipe away the grime with a paper towel and...voilà!
Freshen Up Your Wardrobe
To get your clothes smelling extra fresh and clean, add ½ cup of lemon juice to your detergent before pouring it into the washing machine.
Scrub Your Glass Surfaces
Out of Windex? Mix together vinegar, lemon juice and water for a homemade glass cleaner.
Get Rid of Grease
Oil stains on furniture are notoriously hard to treat, but cornstarch is your secret weapon. Mix it with water, apply the paste to the greasy spot and leave it on overnight. In the morning, the grease will be gone.
