MISCELLANEOUS HOUSEHOLD TIPS

MISCELLANEOUS HOUSEHOLD TIPS

When painting a room put a freshly cut onion in there to get rid of the smell.

Place a few briquettes of charcoal under the seat of your car to absorb odors and keep it smelling fresh. Make sure to use the type without the starting fluid on them or your car will smell of fuel.

To make cut flowers last longer, add 2 tablespoons of vinegar and 1 teaspoon of sugar to the water. Remember to change the water every couple of days. I have also heard that popping an aspirin in the water works also.

If you have thin surface scratches on glass, rub a little toothpaste over the surface. Finishing by polishing off with a soft cloth.

Clean windows and mirrors with scrunched-up newspaper, dampened with 1 part white vinegar to 10 parts water.

We all know about using vinegar to clean windows and mirrors but have you tried adding some dishwasher rinse aid to the water? It leaves glass streak free and with a sparkly finish – and it smells better than vinegar.

Clean copper and brass with salt and lemon juice (three parts salt to one juice).

Open your window blinds every morning and let the sun shine in! Sunshine will make your nice, clean room feel warm and cosy. You will grow to love that feeling and you will be more likely to keep your room clean.

Keep rooms free of flies by putting a vase of lavender by any open windows – they hate it!

Place a button at the end of a sticky tape roll so the end will be easy to find.
