Fingerprint-Proof Your Stainless Steel

On numerous occasions, our stainless steel is touched and left with marks that suppress the shine. However, the degreaser WD40 contains a solvent that prevents fingerprints and other marks from accumulating by getting rid of oil buildup. Apply it on surfaces and gently wipe it with a soft cloth to leave shining surfaces.

Create Custom Cut Sponge For Window Tracks

A dirty spot that can’t be cleaned is a great cause of concern. Therefore a custom-cut sponge hack has brought much-needed relief. For very dirty window tracks two sponges that are dry and wet can be used. To produce an immaculate finish, deep the sponge into a dish soap to remove oil stains.

Clean Your Kettle With Salt and Vinegar

A tea kettle if left uncleaned usually builds up dirt which results in a funny taste of water. This can be rectified by a solution of one cup vinegar and tablespoon salt. This mixture can be poured into the teapot and left to soak for 30 minutes. This softens the accumulated dirt and removes it easily.

Freshen Up Your Garbage Disposal

The garbage disposal is usually a source of foul smell. Therefore, you must clean it every week. Fill it with ice blocks and pour hot water to dissolve all the ice. As a result, grime from the drain is washed away, leaving a fresh smell. For a fresh smelling finish add lemon slices.

Laundry Stripping

This removes remnants of detergents or fabric softener among other unwanted particles from your clothes and linen. Soak your clothes in hot water mixed with washing soda and laundry detergent until the water is cold. After draining the water, rinse your clothes and dry them using a tumble dryer.
