Useful cleaning tips this Bank Holiday
Friday, 28 April 2017 | Scott
Fancy doing a bit of spring cleaning this Bank Holiday weekend? Don't go out and buy expensive brand detergents, we have a selection of useful tips for you to try out with things you will find in your cupboards!
1. USE BAKING SODA ON TILED FLOORS
To clean tiled floors, one of the best things you can use is baking soda. Mixing both baking soda and water together is the perfect homemade floor cleaner. Pour half a cup of baking soda into two gallons of water. Using a sponge or mop, scrub away to leave dazzling results in minutes.
2. CLEAN CAST IRON WITH SALT
Cleaning cast iron cookware is easier than you think. Add 2 tablespoons of oil and place the pan on a medium heat. As soon as the pan is heated, pour 3 tablespoons of salt into the pan. Now, whilst the pan is still hot, use kitchen towel with a tong (preferably) and scour until clean. Once finished, rinse and coat with vegetable oil.
3. SHINE FLOORS WITH WHITE VINEGAR
Wooden floors can get dirty very easily and over time can lose their shine. We have a top tip which can help create that shine they once had. Add nine parts water and one part white vinegar to a bucket. This is a quick and affordable way to get your wooden floor sparkling again.
4. REMOVE TARNISH WITH KETCHUP
Tarnish can be a right pain to get off. However, who would have thought that tomato ketchup is an excellent cleaner of tarnish on copper and brass cookware. Dab a little onto a damp cloth and get wiping!
