  1. The best way to clean out your refrigerator is using a solution that is a combination of salt and soda water. The carbonation and bubbling action of the soda water combines with the abrasiveness of salt to make a great cleaner. This is perfect for getting rid of any stains and spills that might have happened in the back of the fridge.
  2. If you tend to see lime buildup around your kitchen faucet we have a tip for you. Lay paper towels over the fixture, soak it with vinegar and let it sit for an hour or so. The buildup will soften and loosen up, making it easier to remove lime and other buildups around your kitchen faucet.
  3. Have screen doors? Using a scrap of carpet is a great trick to use for cleaning screens. The carpet acts as a powerful brush that will remove all types of dirt and debris.
  4. Cleaning windows with paper towels? Stop right there and switch to rags. With a rag and soapy water, you will have your windows looking like new with no streak marks. Be sure to use a different dry rag to dry the windows off. Another neat trick is to use a windshield squeegee which you can purchase at an auto-parts store.
  5. Need your drapes to look like new for gatherings this spring? Take them off the windows, and throw them in the dryer along with a wet towel. Set the dryer for 15 minutes on the air-fluff cycle, the wet towel will draw off dust while the cycle will fluff the drapes to have them looking like new. Be sure to hang them back on the windows as soon as they are done in the dryer.
  6. Don’t forget about the ceiling blades! These are the easiest places for dust to pile up and spread around a room when the fan is on. To properly clean, cover the blades with a coat of furniture polish and wipe them off. After this, do a light buff to ensure they look like you took them out of the box.
  7. While comforters, blankets, and pillows don’t need to necessarily be cleaned all the time, they do need to be aired out. After a long winter, they could start to form a musty smell as they have been closed inside of your home for months on end. Take these items outside and hang them on a clothesline for the day. That way the musty smell comes out and the wind will blow away any dust that has piled on.
