It's time to start gearing up for a through spring cleaning! I have some useful tips to help along the way.
1. The Button Scraper
Sew a large plastic or wooden button on the corner of a washcloth.
It makes a great scraper for those hard to remove pieces of food.
2. Rinse Aid
Buy a inexpensive watering can. It makes rinsing the tub so much easier.
3. No Plunger Plumbing
If you find yourself with a plugged drain and no plugger, just use a frisbee. Fill the sink with hot water place the frisbee over the drain hole and pump it hard, several times. It works pretty well!
4. Add a shine to your shoe
Take a small square of plush carpet and glue it on a block of wood and whala! Instant shoe shiner.
Do not throw away those shoulder pads just yet also shine great and a great furniture gripper too!
5. Make your own dishwasher
Take a small baby food jar poke a few holes in the lid, Then take a sponge (cellulose is the best) cut it to the size of lid glue it to lid. Fill with dishsoap and screw on the sponge-lid for a great and easy grip dishwasher!
6. Pantyhose will make your floors sparkle
They will bring a extra gleem to your floor if used as a buffing pad.
7. Got a old shaving brush?
They are great for dusting fragile antiques.
8. Got a extra car scraper?
They are great for dust bunnies behind the fridge.
9. For hard to reach areas
For dusty hard to reach area a soft bristle paint brush works great.
The small sponge ones are great to and the hold soap and water well too!
Just sprinkle a little water in the dust pan to keep the dust from flying and stuff from falling out of the pan.
Rubber dustpans are great for easy wet spill clean ups.
