Mrs. Dee Tips and Tricks
Hello Everyone, I’m Mrs. Dee, and I’m here to try and answer questions about everyday problems. Do you have a stain that won’t come out of your favorite shirt? Do you need a great dinner recipe when you’re cooking on a budget, or do you need a good cleaning solution made out of ingredients you have just lying around the house? Well, hopefully, I’ll be able to help with all of your questions.
The first thing I want to do is wish everyone a Happy New Year!! It has been a long, challenging year, and we’ve made it to 2021. One of the things that many people do after the new year is making a new year’s resolution. Many people decide to clean out their closets and do some spring cleaning, so I have a few cleaning hacks to help out with that.
Clean Microwave with water and lemon
Squeeze the juice from 1 lemon into one and a half cups of water. Microwave for 5-10 minutes, allowing the liquid to steam walls and ceiling; wipe out softened food with a sponge
Dust Electronics with coffee filters
Use coffee filters to dust TV and computer screens without leaving fibers as towels do
Dust ceiling fans with a pillowcase
Slip the ceiling blades one at a time into a pillowcase and slid the dust inside it. When you’re finished dusting all of them, bring it outside, turn it inside outward and dump the dust out. You can also dump it inside your trash can.
Freshen you mattress with baking soda
Every six months, sprinkle your entire mattress with baking soda and let it sit for a few hours (up to 24 hours depending on how musty it is) When you’re ready, just vacuum it off.
Use your dishwasher to clean more than just your dishes
Here is a list of things you can safely wash inside your dishwasher: Rubber flip flops, canvas sneakers, and baseball caps, Make-up brushes, Plastic and rubber kid toys (non-electrical), Mouth guards, Hairbrushes and combs, Refrigerator shelves
Buff surfaces with olive oil
Olive oil is excellent for cleaning stainless steel such as pots and pans. Put a little bit of olive oil on a soft cloth and rub in a circular motion to buff out dirty spots. I hope those help get you started with your Christmas and New Year cleaning.
