Part 1: How To Use Everyday Household Items For Cleaning
In these economic times, most people are looking for ways to save money. Some clip coupons, others bargain shop, and while others use everyday items for cleaning. We have an abundance of cleaners at our fingertips by just using several of our staple items within our home. In most cases, these staple items are much cheaper than purchasing all the different cleaners to do the job.
Did you realize salt can be used as a cleaner? Well, I'm going to give you a few ways in which to do just that.
Do you have mugs or cups with coffee or tea stains? Take some salt and a little water and rub the stained area. Now wash the item as usual.
Does your thermos, travel mug, or closed container seem to have a lingering odor? Sprinkle some salt into the container. Let it set in the container overnight, now rinse.
If you're like me, stove-top spills are troublesome. Are you worried about abrasive cleaners marring the surface? Stove-top spills can be easily cleaned by sprinkling with salt first. Salt is mild abrasive and won't mar the stove's surface.
Has your glass pot from the coffee maker developed a build-up of coffee stains and minerals? If so, add one cup of crushed ice, four teaspoons of salt, and one tablespoon of water to the glass pot. Gently swirl, rinse and wash the coffee pot as normal.
Can't seem to get your glass casserole dish clean? Well, fill it with boiling water and add three tablespoons of salt. Let it stand until the water cools. Once cooled wash the dish as normal.
Do you want to get rid of the additional grease in your roasting pan? Sprinkle the pan with salt, then wipe with a damp sponge. Once completed wash the pan as usual.
I hope these tips save you some time and money. Happy cleaning..............
