Hello, Everyone!

With Spring Cleaning in full force, many people are offering household hints - both indoors and outdoors. Please add your household hints.

Quite a few people are trying inexpensive shaving cream in the bathroom and kitchen. Probably many more uses. I have been cleaning my cupboards today with a damp sponge and Barbasol shaving cream. Afterwards, just wipe with a damp paper towel. Works well.

Hi, Pat!
Thanks for the hint.
Vicki


Here is another one:

WINDOW WASHING - Wipe one side horizontally, and other side vertically to discover which side has the streaks.

BLEACH
Bleach has many uses throughout the home. Please add more hints.

Kitchen Sink
For a porcelain sink, fill the sink 3/4 with water. Add 1/2 to 3/4 cup of bleach. Let it sit in the sink for 1 hour. Drain and rinse sink. Clean with cleanser if more cleaning needed.

Bathtub and Tile Grout
Pour approximately 1/4 cup of warm water in a glass custard cup. Add 1 Tablespoon of bleach. Using an old toothbrush, clean bathroom grout. Rinse thoroughly with water. Leave no residue on the walls or inside the tub/shower.

Good Morning, Everyone!

Someone on TOHBB was asking for hints to clean skum from a tub. One of the hints recommended was using a Mr. Clean Magic Eraser and Dawn dish detergent.

Well, I have an old tub with the glaze worn off. I've used numerous cleansers unsuccessfully. Guess what! I had both the Magic Eraser and Dawn dish detergent on hand, AND they worked!

The Mr. Clean Magic Eraser and dish detergent combination works well on stubbon grime on linoleum and tile, too. I had a couple spots on our bathroom floor which had not come off with many cleansers. A couple drops of dish detergent and a little scrubbing with the Magic Eraser promptly cleaned the spots.

NOTE: This time I used Palmolive, which worked just as well as Dawn.
