Simple Trick to Make Your Pots and Pans Look Like New Again!

Great cleaning tips are pretty fabulous to come across and to try. The internet is a vast resource. I especially like the ones that promise you will be saving time doing chores and cleaning. Most of these tips are pretty handy. It is attention catching when you see articles such as how to "clean pots without scrubbing" or how to use aluminum to make your silver shiny again. Interestingly enough, sometimes the tips do not work quite as describe, so you need to do a little trial and error. When I come across a good "life hack", I have to share it. Using a dryer sheet is a great way to quickly wipe the house down prior to guests arriving as the "static guard" attracts dust and keeps it stuck to the sheet, plus it leaves a nice fragrance. Anytime I see a "trick to try" I have it saved on my phone and try to tackle it during the big messes. An easy way to clean up messy carpet stains is with a mixture of 2 parts water, and one part vinegar and spray it on the stain. Place a towel over the stain and then iron the stain through the towel and "poof" the carpet stain disappears.

Have you ever stepped in a puddle and soaked your shoes? I'am sure the answer is yes, and sometimes it can take for what seems like forever to dry the shoes you need for the next day. This simple trick is probably one you haven't thought of. Next time you soak your shoes, just place newspaper inside your wet shoes and they will help to soak up any moisture. Another trick that will come in handy for most anyone is how to clean your mattress. Just use some vodka in a spray bottle to help kill off the bacteria causing the mattress to smell.

There are countless of easy and cheap ideas to try that can make your life easier and cleaner. When you come across a few that really work, make sure to tell your loved ones as they will appreciate it. I recently had a dinner party for a group of friends. Although I love to entertain, sometimes the clean up before and after is a nightmare, as there is always a mess on the stove, and the pots can be covered in grime.

Did you know that lemons have more uses than just for cooking and adding to recipes? Lemons have a variety of different uses when it comes to house cleaning and getting your house smelling fresh, cause we all know just how good lemons smell. Lemon juice, rind, and zest are used in a wide variety of foods and drinks. Lemon juice is used in marinades for fish, where its acid neutralizes amines in fish by converting them into nonvolatile ammonium salts, and meat, where the acid partially hydrolyzes tough collagen fibers, tenderizing the meat, but the low pH denatures the proteins, causing them to dry out when cooked. Lemon juice is frequently used in the United Kingdom to add to pancakes. Lemon juice may also be used for cleaning. A halved lemon dipped in salt or baking powder is used to brighten copper cookware, the acid dissolves the tarnish and the abrasives assist the cleaning.
