Washing Your Gas Stovetop

Things can get messy when food residue spills over the sides of your pots and pans onto the burner heads of your stove. Nonetheless, it’s possible to restore your gas stove to its former glory. You should start by putting your stove grates in the sink and soaking them in a non-toxic degreaser such as dish soap. Then remove the burners and sprinkle the stove with the same degreaser. Use a soft, non-scratch scouring pad to clear away the grease and grime, and then wipe clean with paper towels. Please make sure the cleaning product used is not flammable.

Refresh Your Refrigerator

To clean your refrigerator well, first remove and hand-wash the removable refrigerator shelves, wire racks, and drawers in hot water with dish soap. Cover tough food spills with a warm, wet cloth for a few minutes to soften the spills before beginning with a non-abrasive scrubber.

You can’t remove drawers and shelves, clean them with a mixture of one part of baking soda and seven parts of water. Once all the surfaces have been rinsed and dried, deodorize the refrigerator by filling the open container with dry baking soda and leaving it on the bottom shelf.

Wash Up Your Toaster

You should start cleaning your toaster with the crumb tray. After you have made sure your appliance is unplugged, wash and dry your toaster crumb tray, use a small brush to get to the hard-to-reach corners. You can replace the tray once it’s finished.

To clean the outside of the toaster, wipe it with a damp cloth and a soft soap. If your toaster is made of stainless steel, you can use a little vinegar to make it shine.

Disinfect Your Garbage Can

You can start cleaning your garbage by emptying it, removing any large pieces of food or particles you see in the bottom of the can. Then rinse out the can with either a hose outside or a bathtub. 

Once completely rinsed, use a disinfectant cleaner to spray the inside and outside of the trash can and scrub the can with a nylon brush. After that, rinse and dry the can thoroughly.

Wash Hard Water Stains

It doesn’t have to be hard to get rid of hard water stains. The best way to get rid of the hard water stains is with vinegar. To tackle hard water stains on the walls of the shower and the bathtubs, take the spray bottle and mix the same parts of the water and the vinegar. Spray the solution on the affected surfaces, let it sit for a few minutes, then wipe clean.

Scrub Your Toilet

You always start with inside the toilet bowl. Use half a cup of toilet bowl cleaner to coat all of your toilet bowl, starting at the bottom of the bowl. Then use the toilet brush to scrub the solution. Allow the solution to sit for five minutes before flushing.

To clean the rest of your bathroom along with the exterior, both sides of the lid, both sides of the toilet seat, and the handle. Change paper towels and cloths regularly during this process not to cross contaminate.

Unclog Your Drain

If you think that there is a clog in your bathtub drain (or it’s just been a while since the drain was cleaned), you clean your plumbing with baking soda and vinegar. Just pour half a cup of baking soda down the drain, followed by half a cup of white distilled vinegar.

Let the drain sit down for a few minutes to work out the clog, and then flush it out with hot water.

Free Your Dust Ceiling Fan

Put a pillowcase over the blades to clean your ceiling fans, and then slide them off. This method will pull the dust and debris into the case, so unlike other methods, such as wiping cloth or even a Swiffer stretched over your head, you won’t end up with dust everywhere.

clean up your coffee pot

Your messy coffee maker doesn’t need to be replaced. It just needs some vinegar!

Add 4 cups of water into the reservoir and let sit for 30 minutes. Make sure your coffee machine is turned on to let the vinegar cycle through. 

After the 30 minutes, run your coffee machine to clear out the vinegar then run 3-4 cycles with just plain water to remove the vinegar smell.

Sanitize Your Closet

If your closet smells a bit stale, you can refresh it with some baking soda. Just place the opened baking soda box inside your closet. Once there, it’ll consume the smells for up to a year, but make sure the box is in a place where it won’t spillover. 

Sanitizing your closet floor can also remove the smell of a musty closet. To deodorize the floor with baking soda, make one gallon of hot water, half a cup of vinegar, and one-quarter of a cup of baking soda. Mop the floor with the solution, rinse it with clean water, and dry well.
