When you think about your grandmother’s home, wasn’t it always clean and tidy? Neat as a pin, right? Every surface was dusted and polished, books and magazines tucked out of sight and never a mess on her kitchen counter.
How’d she do it? Years of experience has taught them which home cleaning remedies really work.
Here, are the top 5 old-fashioned cleaning tricks that actually still work:
1. DUST DAMP
Dust everything with a damp cloth. Just make sure you dry any wooden surfaces with a separate towel afterward, so you don’t get watermarks.
2. CLEAN YOUR DRAINS
Try to do this every week. Pour a tablespoon of bicarbonate soda down your drain, followed by a cup of white vinegar. Let it fizz and then pour a kettleful of hot water down the drain.”
3. SANITIZE YOUR CHOPPING BOARD
Got a stinky wooden board? Scrub with coarse salt and a halved lemon, then rinse with boiling water. Leave it in the sun to dry. It’s the best sanitizer.”
4. ELIMINATE MILDEW
Mildew and grout, it’s not a great combination. To get rid of mold, spray a mixture of white vinegar and water (use a 1:3 ratio) on the mildew, let it to settle for 10 minutes, and then wipe away.
5. CLEAN YOUR TOILET
For a fresh, clean toilet, sprinkle Borax around the bowl, followed by half a cup of white vinegar. Leave it overnight and flush in the morning.
