Owning your own home brings with it many fantastic social, psychological and financial advantages. It can form the cornerstone of wealth creation and set you on the path to a future of financial security.
Another (less fantastic) factor attached to owning your own home is the fact that you’ll be required to put in some time and effort into keeping it clean.
While the supermarkets are filled with an almost endless number of cleaning products, they can often come attached with a rather hefty price tag.
In Bardale Village’s continued effort to help South Africans combat the high cost of living, we bring you a number of easy and effective budget friendly home cleaning hacks.
Microwave Cleaning Made Easy
Cleaning your microwave can be a tedious task that often refuses to show real results.
An easy way to keep your microwave squeaky clean is by placing half a cup of white vinegar and half a cup of water into a bowl and cooking it on high power for about 10 minutes.
The steam from the mixture will loosen hardened dirt and food particles, allowing it to come off with a quick wipe.
Hairdryer to Remove Water Rings from Wood
Water rings leave wooden surfaces looking worn-out and sad.
Use a hairdryer to gently blow the surface and remove the ring.
Once banished, you can freshen the surface by wiping it with some olive oil.
Clean Chopping Boards with Coarse Salt & Lemon
This natural cleaning remedy is great for cleaning wooden and glass chopping boards.
Rub the salt into the board and use half a lemon to rub away any caked food particles.
Remove Oil Stains with Baking Soda
Baking soda is a multi-purpose household item that can make cleaning easy.
Soak up oil stains by covering them with dry baking soda.
Goodbye Grease Stains on Clothing
Before washing your clothes, be sure to rub white chalk over any grease stains.
Its absorbing qualities will leave your clothing looking brand new!
Battling Burnt Pans
Fill the bottom of the pan with water and a cup of white vinegar. Bring the mixture to a boil, remove the pan from the heat and add 2 tablespoons baking soda.
Leave the mixture to sit for a few minutes, then empty it and scrub the pan with a rough sponge.
