8 Methods That You Can Use To Clean Different Kind Of Household Items

Clean the fan without having to disassemble itKeeping a fan clean is a real challenge. If you have a model such as the one from the image above, you actually don’t have to disassemble it to clean it. Pour 2 tablespoons of baking soda, a tablespoon of liquid soap, and a cup of vinegar into a spray bottle. Mix well and apply it to the fan. Then place a bag that covers it completely and leave it on for 5 minutes.

All the dirt will stay in the bag and you’ll be able to enjoy a fan that doesn’t spread dust around the house. It’s recommended to clean it once a week so that it doesn’t accumulate dust.

Get rid of accumulated tartarKettles allow us to have hot water at any time of the day, but with use, they accumulate scale, no matter how often you wash them. To remove it effectively, you can mix a cup of vinegar and a cup of water, boil the mixture for a couple of minutes, and that’s it. Remember to rinse or wipe the appliance thoroughly with a damp cloth before using it again.

Remove scale from showerheadsThe showerhead is a place that we sometimes forget to so a deep clean. To clean it and leave it looking as good as new, just mix a cup of vinegar with half a cup of water, submerge the showerhead in it, and leave it in the solution for a couple of hours. Then rinse it thoroughly.

Get rid of unpleasant odors from garbage cansFabric softener can be used for more than just washing your clothes. Some people use it as an air freshener to prevent bad smells coming from the garbage from contaminating the rest of your home. All you need to do is soak a cotton ball in fabric softener and, once it absorbs the liquid, place it in the bottom of the trash can. You can then put a bag in and use the can as normal.

You can also add a cup of baking soda or vinegar to the washing machine and let it sit before finishing the wash cycle, but remember to clean it well before using it with your clothes.

Keep pillows whiteIt’s normal for pillows to change color over time, but to recover the white tone that makes them look so clean, add lemon juice with hydrogen peroxide when washing them. If you need something more powerful, you can use a cup of baking soda and a cup of vinegar along with your favorite soap.
