Cleaning Tips

If you’re looking for ways to help keep your home clean and tidy, there’s no better source of tips and advice than other people who have been in your shoes. Whether you’re dealing with red wine stains on carpets, need a handy baking soda tip for scouring dishes, removing heel marks from floors, or dealing with mold, there are plenty of strategies and tricks here that can help you get on top of things.

Red Wine on Carpet


This will probably sound crazy but it works like a charm. When red wine is spilled on the carpet just pour white wine on top!!! Make sure to pour it completely over the red wine stain then blot thoroughly (no rubbing), I like to use a disposable diaper as the absorbency is fabulous, but a sanitary napkin/pad (Kotex) works in a pinch.

Baking Soda Idea


Keep a shaker of baking soda by your sink, great for scouring ceramic baking dishes, plastic tableware, etc. Inexpensive and doesn’t scratch.

Removing Heel Marks


If you get black marks on your floors from high heels, just erase them! A plain pink eraser does the trick every time!

Say Goodbye to Mildew


To remove mildew from the shower stall, spray with 10% bleach ( put in a spray bottle filled with water ). Spray on any mildew areas then let it sit for 15 minutes. Presto! It’s a goner!
