Great Housekeeping Tips

 

I was reading these cool tips on the local newspaper and would love to promote it by publishing it on my blog 😉

 

1. Clean Burnt pots by filling with water, adding some bicarbonate of soda (baking soda) and boiling for a few minutes. In fact, any kind of food acids (eg vinegar) will remove the stains. 

 

 

 

 

2. Cut up and hem stained or torn tablecloths to use as dish drying cloths.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

3. Wipe crayon marks off walls by first softening the wax with a hairdryer, then wiping off with a cloth .

 

 

 

 

 

 

  4. Keep static away from a skirt by securing a safety pin inside the hem.

 

 

 

 

 

 

5. Store cardboard tubes from toilet paper and kitchen towel and fill with scrunched newspaper. They make excellent firelighters.

 

 

 

 

6. Restore tautness to sagging wicker furniture by lightly washing with hot soapy water and allowing to air-dry outside, the wood and cane will shrink and tighten.

 

 

 

 

 

A green tip : Use rotten leaves in your garden, which are rich in minerals, instead of compost bought at store. To get the best results from your garden, invest in a compost bin. Add shredded leaves, manure, green weeds or grass clipping and skin of vegetables. Keep the pile moist and turn it over frequently.
