Cleaning Tips, Part 2

We hope you enjoyed Cleaning Tips Part 1 and that our tips came in useful. It’s been a while but have now put together Cleaning Tips Part 2 based on uses for vinegar. There are hundreds of uses for vinegar and so we thought we would share our favourites.

Getting Rid of Odours

This is a favourite and works really well. It will get rid of most smells, even the strongest such as paint fumes and tobacco smells. For the vinegar to be most effective use white or cider vinegar and pour into a few bowls, place them around the room and leave. After about 24 hours the odor should be gone.

Water Rings on Furniture

To remove marks from wood furniture, mix equal parts vinegar and olive oil and apply with a dry clean cloth along the wood grain. Then buff it up using another clean and dry cloth.

Clean Your Fridge

Instead of using harsh chemicals, clean the inside of your fridge, including the shelves, with a solution of half water and half vinegar. You could also leave a small bowl in there to get rid of any strong odours.

Clean your Bathroom

Spray undiluted vinegar around the sink and bath. Leave for a few minutes and then wipe clean with a damp cloth.

Remove Carpet Stains

Make a paste of 2 tablespoons of white vinegar and a quarter of a tablespoon of salt. Rub it into the stain and leave for the solution to dry. After 24 to 48 hours vacuum away the residue. Make sure that you always test this method on an unseen piece of carpet first.

Getting rid of Mildew

Pour undiluted white or apple cider vinegar into a spray bottle. Spray the mouldy surface and wash the affected area thoroughly with a brush. Dry the area completely. Do not use this method on wood.
