A sanitised home while fun can be extremely tiring if you do not know a couple of home maintenance hacks. It is important that as homeowners, you know how to take care of your appliances, your furniture, and everything within your space.

So, what are these home maintenance techniques? We will provide you with the best and most practical ones, some of which are quite unusual yet very effective.

Baking Soda for Your Kitchen Cabinets

You can make a cleaning solution using baking soda and vegetable oil. Make sure that it will resemble the texture of a toothpaste. Then, now you are ready to clean your cabinets and the handles. And here’s another tip. You can use baking soda to remove foul odors not just in your kitchen but around your house. This will help you keep a sanitised home!

Vinegar for Faucet Water Stains

Perhaps you already know that vinegar can do a lot when it comes to home cleaning. For your water stains, this is highly effective. What you can do is to get paper towels soaked in vinegar. Then, wrap the faucet with the home-made cleaner and it should be sparkly clean in no time. This is cheaper than commercial cleaners and it works every time. Who would know that vinegar can make a sanitised home?

Shaving Cream for Your Bathroom Mirror

Who would have thought that you can use your shaving cream to stop your bathroom mirror from fogging? Such a great invention!

Car Wax for Your Toilet Bowl

Who would want to have stains on their toilet bowls? We guess, none! So what you need to do is apply car wax to coat your toilet bowl. This should last for half a year. Not a bad idea, right?

Vodka for Your Bed

Yes, your eyes are not lying. You can spray a thin layer of vodka to your mattress to disinfect and get rid of the bacteria. Wait for it to dry before you change your bedsheets. By doing this technique, you can be sure to have a good night’s rest! Yes, vodka is not just for drinking, it can also help you make a sanitised home!

Baby Powder for Your Floor

Do you want to stop creaks on your floor? You don’t need to buy expensive things to fix it. A quick remedy is to put powder on your floor. It should do wonders in no time.

Ketchup for Your Silver

Get rid of tarnished spots from your silverware by putting ketchup. Let it stay for a while, wipe and wash it. You would be surprised with the result.

Bleach for Bathroom Moulds

Bathroom moulds can be very disgusting. But how are you going to clean it? Again, you don’t need expensive cleaners. All you need is bleach. Apply the bleach on the affected areas of your bathroom using cotton balls. Wait for a few hours and remove the cotton.

Just a piece of quick advice when you clean or you create your home-made solutions. Make sure that you wear appropriate gears like gloves or even protective eyewear. It’s always better to stay safe than end up in a hospital’s emergency room, right? With the tips above, and with proper handling, it is easy to maintain a great home.
