Let's face it: cleaning is no fun. No matter what Martha Stuart says, house cleaning will always be a dreaded consequence of having your own home. But, here at Dan Ryan Builders, we try to make the process a bit more entertaining with these creative and fun tips! Each of these is a re-imagined way to use your favorite household items. Get ready to be shocked! Here we go:
- Before clearing snow off a driveway, liberally spray both sides of a plastic or metal shovel with cooking spray. The ice will slide right off the oily surface. It's the easiest trick for smoother snow removal.
- Remove small stains from suede by gently rubbing a nail file (either side) across the problem area a few times to get rid of the splotch.
- Add this to the grocery shopping list for new reasons. Cornmeal absorbs grease on light colored fabric or upholstery. Pour enough on to cover the soiled area and let sit for 15 to 30 minutes. Vacuum to remove the grains.
- Repair hardwood floors by rubbing shelled walnuts into shallow scratches. Their natural oils help hide the flaws.
