Home cleaning and stain removal are challenges of everyday life. However, there are tricks to cleaning you can try out using everyday normally available home stuff. Let us look into the natural cleaning solutions for some of the common cleaning problems we encounter.
To clean glasses and windows, divide a newspaper in two, fold up one half in a small square and wet it in cold water mixed with a little vinegar. Rub the glass thoroughly with the wet half of the paper and dry it up with the other. This is great for removing any stain or mark on the glass and is a perfect solution for window cleaning. Make sure to not add more than 10 ml of vinegar to one liter of water.
The other challenge is about cleaning papered wall. It is not easy to get the dirt off by simply brushing the surface, and wet cleaning will spoil the paper too. Here is the trick – cut out thick slices off a large loaf of bread two days old and dry. Blow the dust off the wall with a vacuum cleaner. Now rub down with a piece of the bread in long single strokes, beginning from the top of room. Once the upper part is cleaned, word towards the bottom, repeating the process until all the area has been covered. If done right, so that every spot is cleaned, the paper will look as good as new. You may also use dry corn meal in place of bread. You can apply corn meal using a cloth.
A large share of home cleaning is owned by one of the most expensive assets of home, which is the marble floor. It is not a good idea to wash the marble tops of wash stands, bureaus and other marble surfaces with soap. Use only clean warm water and a soft cloth for the purpose. Nothing can completely remove greasy spots off marble, so one should be extra careful not to allow greasy substitutes to settle on marble surfaces.
