Thrifty Thursday: Cleaning Tips and Tricks

I recently came across some really helpful cleaning tips and I wanted to share them with you.

Ceiling Fan Cleaner

Slide a pillow case over each blade and wipe them clean. the dust goes in the pillow case and can be repeated until all blades are clean. When you're done, take it outside and shake it out.

Sticker Remover

A little got air quickly loosens price lables- with zero fingernail chipping.

Scum Remover

Remove soap buildup from glass shower doors by spinkling a few drops of water onto a used fabric softener sheet and start scrubbing.

TV Cleaner

Use a coffee filter to wipe down dusty and staticky computer monitors and tv screens.

Pan Cleaner

 1/4 cup of baking soda in a small glass bowl, squirt in hydrogen peroxide until it makes a nice paste. Then rub it on the stained/greased pan with a sponge or cloth.

Carpet Cleaner

Scrape up the liquid.
Sprinkle baking soda or cornstarch on stain, absorb for 10 minutes and then vacuum.
Mix one tablespoon of clear dishwashing liquid and one tablespoon of white vinegar with two cups of warm water.
Use a white cloth/sponge to put the mixture onto the stain, then blot until all the liquid is absorbed.
Sponge off with color water and blot dry.

I can't wait to try these tips out. Let me know if they work for you? Or if you have any other helpful tricks up your sleeves.
