10 Home Cleaning Recipes

Author: pdelray


Home cleaning is becoming more and more of a chore these days, and often when people find a little bit of time to clean their house, they either cannot find the cleaner they need or they do not have the right one.

With all of the common household items that can be found lying around the house, knowing how to put things together can really help save stress, money, and a trip to the store when you are already limited on free time. There are homemade alternatives for some of the most common home cleaning tasks:

Home Cleaning Recipe #1: Mildew remover and disinfectant dilute 3/4 cup chlorine bleach in one gallon of water. You can use it on bathroom tile, kitchen floor tile, and grout. Scrub a bit, wipe the areas clean, and rinse thoroughly.

Home Cleaning Recipe #2: Stain remover for non stick pans Pour a solution of 1 cup of water, 2 tbsp of baking soda, and 1/2 cup chlorine bleach into the stained pan and simmer on the stove for 10 minutes. Do not let it boil over the side of the pan. Being careful not to burn yourself, wash the pan in hot soapy water, rinse and dry. 

Home Cleaning Recipe #3: Homemade glass cleaner combine 1/2 cup of ammonia, 2 cups of rubbing alcohol and one teaspoon of liquid dishwashing detergent in a gallon of water. There are many different recipes for homemade glass cleaner, but using this one is good for very cold weather as it is not very likely to freeze.

Home Cleaning Recipe #4: Grease remover for walls place several napkins or paper towels over the grease spot, and place a warm iron over the towels until the grease is absorbed. Be careful not to have the iron up at full heat, or the towels may start to smoke..
*Note* Recipe #4 also works on walls for removing crayon, after any excess crayon has first been scraped off with a knife.

Home Cleaning Recipe #5: Gum Remover from carpeting and upholstery Sponge with a small amount of dry cleaning solvent. Use a small amount at a time to prevent possible damage. Do not use gasoline, lighter fluid or carbon tetrachloride.

Home Cleaning Recipe #6: Homemade air freshener Grab a handful of cotton balls and moisten them with oil of wintergreen. Place them out of sight, but somewhere that air will flow freely to them.

Home Cleaning Recipe #7: Carpet Freshener Mix 3/4 c. baking soda, 2 Tbsp. corn starch and 1/4 c. scented talc powder. Let it stand on carpeting for 10 minutes, then vacuum.

Home Cleaning Recipe #8: Homemade oven cleaner Fill a small glass bowl with 1/2 c. full strength ammonia. Place the full bowl in the oven and close the door, letting it sit overnight. The next day, wipe the oven with newspapers. If needed, use fine steel wool, then wash with warm soapy water and rinse. 

Home Cleaning Recipe #9: Discolored aluminum fixer heat up 1 Tbsp. vinegar and one quart of water or 2 tsp. of cream of tartar in pan until the discoloration disappears.

Home Cleaning Recipe #10: Pet urine neutralizer Blot the carpet with paper towel, then wash with the suds of liquid dish detergent. Rinse with 1/2 c. vinegar, diluted in 1 quart of water. Lay paper towels over the spot and apply pressure. Let the towels sit on the area for about 5 hours, then remove the toweling, and allow to dry.

Possibly it really is a dаy off extеnded ρlaying fοr youг сhild,
or еven a day full of physical woгk or even entertainіng activities of sun and entertaining, but regarԁless of the reasoning,
the occasional snoting sesѕion not only is tolerable bу thee rest with the family members, but even somewhat natyral because of the very deep sleeрng patternѕ thаt happen with occasional ove exertions.
