Spring Cleaning Tips

For warding off smells in the refrigerator, any coffee grounds can be used, but dark French Roast grounds give the refrigerator a great smell (they can be used or new) .

Boil a bowl of water with two lemon halves in a microwave for 5 minutes.  The steam will do wonders without harsh chemicals.  Wipe inside with a microfiber cloth.  This process will kill germs and give your entire kitchen a refreshing natural lemon scent.

Rub chalk onto stained fabric asap.  The chalk will absorb the grease and help to remove the stain through washing.

Warm up a bowl of vinegar in microwave for 30 seconds.  Soak a used paintbrush for three minutes.  Afterwards, soak them in hot and soapy water!  It helps to remove the paint from the brush.  Repeat if needed.

Add vinegar and water with a drop of lavender and lemon oil to a spray bottle.  You got a wonderful natural cleaner with natural scent.  To clean blinds, spray a micro fiber cloth. Hold the blinds and glide the cloth along blinds.  For computer key board, drop a tip in the cleaner slightly and clean the hard to reach areas with the tip.  Make sure the tip does not contain too much water.  Spray microfiber with the cleaner slightly and wipe other areas of the key board.

Purified water is an ultra effective cleaning agent and much safer alternative to traditional chemical cleaners.
