Too Early for Spring Cleaning?

Tips & tools for Everyday Items

Sometimes you just can’t find the right tool for the job, even with all the usual cleaning tools at your disposal. Here are some tips for those items and places that are always a pain to keep squeaky clean.

Microwave: The solution for a clean microwave is in your refrigerator (or maybe in the produce section of the grocery store). Microwave a cup of water and a few lemon slices, and then use a sponge to clean the microwave with the warm water.

Grease Stains: This one works on clothes as well as surfaces. Rub white chalk on the grease stain, let it sit for five minutes, and then wipe it away with a wet rag.

TV: Screens on HDTVs are delicate, and you want to avoid liquid cleaners, especially on LCD screens. Instead, take a dryer sheet and use it to clean the screen. The sheet will pick up dust and reduce static, and won’t damage the TV.

Microfiber Couches: Use distilled water to clean any stain! Make sure you don’t use regular water! The lack of hard minerals in distilled water helps to remove stains while not making any new ones.
Stainless Steel: Polish with cream of tartar!
