1. A drop of olive oil
Are those greasy fingerprints on your stainless steel appliances driving you crazy? Olive oil provides the perfect solution. Apply a few drops of olive oil (baby oil will work too) to a paper towel and use this to rub the stainless steel with. The fingerprints will disappear completely.
2. White chalk
Always keep some pieces of white chalk close to your laundry detergent. If you’ve got grease or oil stains in your clothes, chalk will help you get them out. Rub some chalk on the stains and the chalk will absorb all of the grease. Wash the item of clothing like you normally would. Sprinkling a little cornstarch on the stain will have the same effect.
Now we’re talking about cornstarch anyway, this thickening agent is also a great product to clean windows with. Make a mixture of 240 millilitres water, 240 millilitres white vinegar and add a generous teaspoon of cornstarch to this. Let this dissolve and you’ve got yourself a great cleaning agent to clean your windows with and make sure they’re completely streak-free.
4. White vinegar
Water stains caused by minerals in your bathroom or kitchen can be a real eyesore. Luckily, you can easily remove these stains with a bit of white vinegar. Apply a generous amount of vinegar to a microfiber cloth and use this to clean the stained surfaces. Let the vinegar sit for about 15 minutes and then wipe it off again with a clean cloth. The acid in the vinegar will cause the stains to disappear.
5. Sports gear
Do you have smelly sports gear that can’t go in the washing machine, like a cycling helmet? Put it in a big, sealable bag and put the bag in the freezer. Because of the freezing cold, the smell will disappear from the helmet. Got chewing gum on your pants? Put it in the freezer! When the chewing gum is frozen, you can easily remove it.
6. Shoe soles
Are the white soles of your shoes a little less white than when you first got them? You can easily clean them with some micellar water. A lot of people use this water to clean their face with it, but it also works wonders on your shoes.
7. Dark circles in toilets
Many people use a pumice stone to scrub dead skin cells from their skin. But you can also use this stone to clean your toilet! It’s very easy to remove lime scale and dark circles from your toilet with a wet pumice stone. Do make sure that the pumice stone is thoroughly wet because if it isn’t, you might scratch your toilet bowl. If you really want to properly clean the toilet bowl, you can first put 150 grams of baking soda in the bowl and let that sit and soak for a few minutes. Then, clean the bowl with the pumice stone.
