DIY Cleaning Tips you need for around the Home

Keeping your home clean is important, it not only keeps it looking great, but it is also important for your health. A healthy home is a happy home, so we have come up with 5 of our favourite DIY cleaning tips using natural ingredients to keep your home sparkling and germ free.

Steam away those Stains

If your microwave is full of unsightly splatters from last night’s TV dinner and old food smears that stand the test of time, then this cleaning hack is for you! Start by putting an equal amount of white vinegar and water into a bowl. Then microwave for 5 minutes, this will loosen all those tough stains ready to remove with a simple wipe. If you don’t fancy using white vinegar you can replace this with lemon juice!

Toothbrushes at the Ready!

Get your old toothbrushes at the ready because they are going to come in very useful with this cleaning hack! Stubborn dirt between tiles can be a nightmare to clean, however, mixing baking soda and water onto a toothbrush and scrubbing the problem areas with the mixture will help lift the grime and dirt and allow you to get into those hard to reach areas with ease.

Say Goodbye to Dirty Blenders

Great for making your early morning smoothies, it is undeniable that the blender is a handy kitchen appliance, however, they are not always the easiest to clean effectively. Start by filling your blender with warm water and add a small drop of dish soup. Then pop the lid on and blend for a couple of seconds. Once complete empty out the mixture and leave to dry.

Pet Fur be Gone!

At Home & Dry we love our pets. What’s not to love? They make you happy on your worst days and are great companions, oh wait… pet fur! Pet fur can be a real issue in many homes and frustrating to clean, however, with this hack you can keep on top of the hair situation in your home; all you need are some rubber gloves! Start by dipping your rubber gloves in a bowl of water, then you can simply run your hand over the area with pet fur and the glove will pick it up. You will be amazed how much fur you pick up from your home furnishings!

Cutting Board Cleanliness

Cleaning your chopping boards regularly and effectively is essential to prevent bacteria spreading and keeping the people in your home happy and healthy. All you need for this cleaning hack is a lemon and salt. Start by cutting your lemon in half and pouring salt onto your wooden chopping board.
