Make spring cleaning more pleasant by following these useful tips from Delphis Eco. Here’s our list of hand-picked, awesome, all-natural spring-cleaning hacks guaranteed to simplify your life…
Use Shaving Cream to Clean Mirrors
This is especially helpful if you’re cleaning the mirrors in the bathroom. Not only will the shaving cream assist in getting them squeaky clean super-fast, but it will also stop them from fogging up every time you take a bath or shower!
Get Rid of Carpet Stains with Vinegar
Regardless of the type of stain on your carpet, vinegar is a sure-fire solution to getting rid of it for good. Paint stain? Create a concoction of 1 1/2 teaspoons of vinegar, 1 1/2 teaspoons of laundry detergent, and two cups water. Pour over the stain and blot away using a sponge – don’t forget to rinse well with cold water. Coffee stain? Mix equal parts water and white vinegar and blot until the stain lifts with ease. There’s no stain too severe for vinegar to tackle!
Clean the Microwave in a Snap
No need to spend time scrubbing away inside the microwave in order to get it sparkling clean again. Instead, simply fill a bowl with two tablespoons of (you guessed it) white vinegar and a squeeze or two of lemon juice and heat it up inside the microwave for a minute. The mixture will have loosened any dirt and grime so that you are able to wipe it all off effortlessly using a damp cloth.
Dust Off Those Blinds
Seeing as though they are nearly impossible to clean even when using a traditional feather duster, many of us opt to neglect our blinds when it comes time to do a thorough spring cleaning. Luckily, the solution to dust-free blinds is quite simple indeed. All that you’ll need is a pair of old socks and tongs. Slide the socks onto the tongs and use them to wipe away any accumulated dust bunnies. For an even better result, you can also choose to dip the socks in a homemade mixture of white vinegar and warm water beforehand.
Make that Grout Sparkle
The grout in the shower can start to look grimy pretty quickly. Transform it with the help of a bit of baking soda, some warm water and a toothbrush. The baking soda will help to loosen the dirt and the toothbrush will make it possible to get to all of those difficult to reach areas.
Remove Limescale Build-up
Grab a few plastic bags and create a mixture of baking soda, vinegar and dishwashing liquid. Pour it into the plastic bags and tie them around your shower head and taps, securing them with a hair-tie or elastic band. Leave to soak overnight and you’ll be able to effortlessly wipe away the limescale in the morning – no matter how long it has been since the last clean!
