Focus On: Keeping Clean in Unusual Ways
Is the red wine stain on your carpet making you see red? Or is your child's crayon masterpiece on the wall driving you up the wall?! Now you can relax because here are some clever, cleaning solutions for these and other aggravating stains.
· For that spilled red wine on the carpet, just pour white wine over the stain and blot it dry with an absorbent towel. You can also sprinkle the stain with a dash of table salt to stop the wine from spreading.
· Salt is also useful for just-happened spills in the oven. Pour the salt on the spill, and it will form a crust that makes wiping up the spilled food much easier. There's even an added bonus - the salt will also reduce the burnt odor!
· When your little artist draws on the wall with crayon, just spray the area with WD-40 and brush with a stiff brush. Then re-spray and wipe it with a soft cloth.
· If you have a water stain on the coffee table, take peanut butter and slather it on the stain. Wait several minutes and simply wipe it away.
· To remove stickers and decals from windows, walls and other surfaces without harming the surface, soak a cloth in a cup of warm vinegar. Apply the cloth to the decal, and hold it there for a few minutes. The sticker should peel off easily.
· To keep mold and mildew out of the bathroom, use ordinary, white candles to rub on the grout.
