3. Baking soda
Do you see mould growing on your tiles? This is common especially in areas that get moisture and not much sunlight. Relax we have an easy solution for you, mix baking soda, water and some vinegar in a spray bottle then spray it on the affected area. Let it sit for a while then wipe and scrub using a damp cloth.
You can also use the same solution to clean a burnt pan, but this time using an old sponge and scrub it lightly, not too violently as you might scrape the pan.
4. Petroleum jelly (Vaseline)
Petroleum jelly also famously recognised as Vaseline is a very good water stain remover. It is most commonly used for water stains on wood and rings on furniture. To remove the stain you just have to apply the jelly on the stained surface and leave it on for 8 hours or overnight.
Once the sitting time is up, take a clean cloth and wipe the jelly off. If the stain is not removed, repeat the process again and leave the Vaseline on for a longer period of time.
When life gives you lemons, you use it to clean your cutting boards. That’s right, pairing lemon juice with some salt helps remove bacteria and germs on your cutting board. These germs usually come from the raw food you place on the cutting board which seeps into the small creases of the cutting board. Don’t you worry, this hack is crazy simple all you need is a lemon, salt and your energy to scrub the cutting board clean.
First, sprinkle salt across the cutting board generously, then slice the lemon in half and you’re ready to go. Use the flat side of the lemon half and give the cutting board a good scrubbing. After you’re done scrubbing, catch your breath and let it sit for 5 minutes then rinse the cutting board with a sponge and now you have a germ-free cutting board.
