When moving a living space around or replacing old furniture, it can be disappointing to see that the old furniture has left a dent in your carpet. It is always exciting to see new furniture take shape and see it fit in to your living space until you notice the impressions left by old or moved furniture.
This is unavoidable but can be erased with this simple and effective tip that could be regarded as one of the most useful tips for cleaning a home.
Go straight to the freezer when you realise that furniture has left impressions in your carpet. Place two ice cubes on each impression. As they melt they will loosen the carpet fibres so that they stand, rather than look flat. Let the area dry overnight and then vacuum, leaving your carpet looking as good as new.
Cleaning the sink is a chore that all parents hate, especially after the children have done their best to ensure it is constantly piled with dirty plates, mugs and dishes. It is also an annoying chore after a long day at work to come home and scrub the sink.
After emptying the sink of the days used crockery, use this simple but effective tip to make you feel like a domestic cleaning god or goddess. To make sure that the sink sparkles, shake baking soda on to a sponge and rub the sink gently all around. Rinse the sink after this has been done and watch your sink sparkle back at you.
