    Default What is your cleaning tip to share

    I've got three boys, their toilet stinks all the time, we'll until I started cleaning their loo (and walls) with a spray bottle with vinegar & water. I just spray and wipe away with loo paper then pop it into the bowl & flush away

    What is your best cleaning tip to share to help other hubbers?

    I keep a squeegee in the shower and squeegee it after every shower, stops the build up of water marks and grime so you have to clean it less often.

    I have trained (haha) my boys to wipe up their wayward wee as soon as they do it....nothing quite like walking into their toilet a day after they have wee'd on the floor

    Oh, and never underestimate the many uses for baby wipes.

    Soak oven wire shelves in the laundry trough with napisan then just wipe off the grime.

    Clean windows and sills with a vinegar spray to keep away black mildew.

    Don't have kids or husbands.

    Yep, the place would be spotlessly clean and smell nice all the time! Not to mention peaceful...

    @HappyLady, that's a great tip about the vinegar and water spray in the loo. Have a 13yo boy with a sprinkler (apparently). This might make it a bit easier for him to clean up after himself.

    An oldie but a goodie...open box of bi-carb soda in the fridge is fantastic for keeping odours at bay.

    Also, bi-carb soda and water to make a paste is great for cleaning stainless steel. It makes the sinks and stovetop really shine.

    I have burnt on rice on my good pot. Any ideas other than scrubbing? I don't want to put massive scratches in it. I tried bicarb without success.

    I always put heaps of bicarb with water and continue boiling until the burnt stuff can be scraped away?

    I find if I fill a saucepan with water to the 1/3 level, whack in a lot of bicarb and then boil it down on the stove, any burnt bits will lift.
    I tried that. It didn't work.

    I use dish waging liquid on our shower screen, spotless. We have a wet room so I clean the bath while I'm having a shower, easy peasy.
