Household Cleaning Tips

1.  Rubbing alcohol on a cloth makes chrome sparkle
2.  Cook a cup of water with 2Tbsp of lemon juice in the microwave for 3-5 minutes. Cuts way down on scrubbing time.
3.  1 cup of white vinegar in a gallon of hot water makes those vinyl floors shine. Vinegar is also a great grease cutter.
4.  A mixture of 50/50 bleach and water placed in a spray bottle works great on mold that builds up on tile in the bathroom. Just scrub those stubborn places with a toothbrush.
5.  Some newspaper along with glass cleaner  does a great job on cleaning windows, no streaks.


  1. Great tips!! I love to share my favorite tip. To remove crayon or pencil from walls without removing the paint, pour about 1/4 c. of baking soda into a small bowl and add enough hot water to make a thick paste. Using a thin white kitchen towel, rub a good amount of the paste over the crayon/pencil in small, circular motions. (It will crumble onto the floor, but you can vacuum it with ease.) Rinse a wash cloth in warm water and rinse the area to remove the excess paste. :)
