For Your InformationPosted: October 2, 2008
This is the cleaning/home preparation for selling edition. Hope you find something useful!
*When hanging pictures, put a piece of tape on the wall before driving the nail. This will prevent teh paint from peeling off when you remove the nail.
*Clean windows with any of the following solutions:
- rubbing alcohol
- white vinegar
- 1/2 cup ammonia + 1/2 cup vinegar+ 2 Tbl. cornstarch
*You can remove pain splatters from glass (windows) with hot vinegar.
*You can eliminate bathroom odors by keeping a small decorative dish of vinegar out on a counter or open shelf.
*Keep bathroom mirrors from fogging by rubbing a thin layer of dish soap over the mirror when dry. This works wonderfully!
*You can revive droopy veggies by placing them in a dish of cold water with a Tbl. or two of lemon juice and letting them soak for a bit. (I know that has nothing to do with home care.)
*If you are a knickknack person and you have a bunch of small containers of sorts fill them with a bit of sand to weigh them down and prevent tipping during dusting. That is of course, if you dust. If you don’t, I won’t hold it against you…
*Clean the inside of your fridge with baking soda so you can deodorize at the same time,
*To more quickly clean an oatmeal pot, soak it in cold water instead of hot. Amazing!
*I’ve never tried this, but word on the street is that if you crack a favorite dish you should boil it in a pot of milk for 45 minutes. This should cause the crack to disappear and actually make the dish stronger as well. Who comes up with this stuff?
So, what do you know this week?
