Alcohol, baking soda and vinegar are among the well-known cleaning tricks of experienced housewives

Are you a woman who loves cleaning or a woman who would rather avoid it? Although there are many women who love cleaning and can enjoy it to the fullest. There are probably more who don’t share that enthusiasm for household chores, and who like to run away from these tasks because they know it takes a lot of time and effort. If you are one of them, then these tricks will help you save:

  • Precious time
  • Effort
  • Small funds

Ammonia for windows

If you’ve been throwing money away on expensive window cleaners, make a change now and try ammonia. It’s a much cheaper method and not hard to get at regular drugstores. To clean, mix 1 part ammonia and 10 parts water, pour the solution into a spray bottle and use it on the windows, which you then buff dry. 

Floor and tile vinegar

Beautiful and clean tiles can be achieved with plain vinegar. Mix ¼ cup with 1 litre of water and mop the floor with it. It will shine clean. Vinegar works just as well on tiles whose grooves quickly become clogged with dirt and spoil the overall impression. Mix it with baking soda and you’ll be amazed at the results!

Citron salt for washing machine

Scale is undoubtedly a very unpleasant thing, which, moreover, cannot be properly destroyed by anything. It settles not only on taps, in kettles, but also in washing machines. However, with this trick, you can easily get rid of it. All you need is lemon salt, which you pour into the washing machine and then run on the basic program at 80 degrees.

Alcohol as a polisher

You never thought of it, but did you know that alcohol is great for polishing glass? Apply a small amount to a cloth and get to work polishing mirrors and windows. They’ll be beautifully translucent, shiny and clean. Plus, you won’t even have to find anything or run anywhere, because you’re sure to have at least one bottle of alcohol stashed somewhere in your home.


Oven Baking Soda

Anyone who likes to bake should know this trick. By opening and closing the oven door very often, it can become clogged with dirt. The fastest way to get rid of them is with 1 cup of baking soda and plenty of warm water. Mix to make a paste to coat the oven door. Leave for 15 minutes and then clean and wash with warm water. Baking soda will also help with mould in bathrooms. Just mix it with lemon juice in a 1:1 ratio and apply to the affected areas. The mould will be gone in no time!
