Cleaning Tips Of The Week: Salt & Vinegar
Welcome back again Goldilocker’s for another cleaning tips of the week, I’m so excited for
this week’s tips and I hope you are too. Let’s get straight to it!!!
The first tip I have today is one that I have been using for a while now but when I first came
across it, I have to admit I was a little sceptical. However as soon as I tried it and realised
how good the results came out, I was hooked. This has to do with removing stains from
fabrics and the way we are going to it is…. Drum roll…. SALT.
Yep, we are using salt, on fabric, for stains, not cooking…
Ok so this sounds ridiculous but trust me it works, simply grab your fabric piece of clothing
or tablecloth etc that you’re trying to get your stain out of and pour a generous amount of
salt over the stain. Let this sit for 30 minutes and then remove the salt and wash the fabric
with soap and water and voila, stain removed.
My second tip has to do with removing shower gunk and grime and we all know that this is
the last thing we feel like doing throughout our day, but it is essential to have a clean and
hygienic bathroom. All you need is a mix of half vinegar (our favourite from last week) and
half dish soap and then get down and scrubbing. This great combination will get rid of even
the worst stains and some nifty tools that can help are sponges and toothbrushes.
As for our final tip of the day, we are talking about removing grease stains and this can be
done on a variety of surfaces including carpet. The mixture you are going to need for this
endeavour is 4 parts rubbing alcohol and one part salt, then rub this mixture into the stain
and let it sit. Once this surface has dried completely simply vacuum up the remaining salt
and say bye bye to any grease making your place look dirty.
Thanks again everyone for reading our latest tips this week. As always, leave a comment on
any tips you may have and let us know if any of these helped you in your home!!
