5 Tips for the Busy Home Maker or Cleaner!


Like a lot of you, I have done my fair share of
 house cleaning over time and I know the value of
 good cleaning tools and learning tips and tricks from others.

Having said that, today I want to share with  you 
5 tips and tricks that I have learnt 
and continue to use in day to day life.

Plastic Bags to Stop the Sink Leaking

I don’t know about you, but it is so annoying when your sink 
plugs start giving out and pretty soon you have no water 
left in the sink to wash with. One day I needed a quick fix and thought I’d cut up a plastic bag and use it as 
an extra seal between the plug and drain. 
It works better than anything else I've tried,
 including buying a new plug.

Eucalyptus Spray takes out Oil Stains

Oil stains are one of the hardest stains that I have had to try and get out of clothes and up until just recently I had 
almost given up on the possibility of getting them out. 
I tried different stain removers, some being very time 
consuming but still giving poor results. 
One day my sister suggested I try Eucalyptus spray to 
get out my oil stains. I sprayed it on the clothes straight
 away and put it in the wash. 
When it came out I was so surprised, I couldn't see 
where the stain had been. 
I later found out that Eucalyptus was a 
well know oil stain remover in year's gone by .

Magic White Sponges Cleans Everything

You may have never heard of magic white sponges before 
but I must say they are one of my favourite cleaning tools. 
They work very similar to micro fibre clothes but are even better for getting marks of walls, cleaning smooth surfaces 
like the bath tub, sink, glass, shower screen, splash back, 
fridge and the list goes on. It’s hard to describe how easy it is to clean with them and I hope you go out and buy yourself some and give them a try so you will know first-hand how great they are.  These little cleaner's are designed to be used without nasty chemical cleaners, you can use them with a home made 
natural cleaning soap or  just water. Cool hay, Chemical free cleaning for a more natural healthy home.

P.S If you like them as much as I do jump on Ebay where
 you can cheaply buy them bulk.

Dust your Skirting and House with a Cobweb Duster

Being a cleaner I know the value of a good tool. 
I some times have to quickly dust an entire house in a short time and when this happens you start thinking up ideas on how to make life easier. I was cobwebbing one day and thought why not use it to dust the skirtings as well. From then on I now dust all my skirtings, curtain rails and doorways with my cobwebber. 
Go for it, see what a great tool the old cobwebber is!

Olive oil and Table Salt Varnish Repair

No matter how hard we try to keep our tables nice and unmarked accidents still happen and one that is hard to disguise is burn marks from hot cups, pots etc. One day my sister came upon a article on how to fix burn marks with olive oil and table salt. 
This idea worked so well, it repaired the varnish and has 
given our table a new lease on life. 
For the in detailed recipe and how she does it, 

God Bless,
