If you’ve ever spilled red wine on your favorite pair of pants, you know how much of a pain it can be to remove.
But now you don’t have to worry—the solution is right in your kitchen cabinet!
 
Mix about 3 parts hydrogen peroxide and 1 part dishwashing liquid, then apply to your red wine stain. Let it sit for a while (think 20 minutes to an hour) to do its magic. Then, blot clean before attempting to fully wash out the mixture.
Do you have a grease-covered stove that’s been driving you up a wall? You don’t have to live with it!
 
We’ve got the solution: Sudsy ammonia. Sudsy ammonia contains detergent that helps remove tough grime on metal surfaces—and it’s so easy to use. Just mix 1/2 cup of it with enough water to fill a one-gallon container, then clean your oven racks, stove hood, and grill by dipping a sponge into the solution and wiping over the surface before rinsing with clear water. You can also soak oven racks and grill grates in the mixture directly, with a little extra ammonia if they’re particularly dirty.
 
Caution: Avoid using ammonia on aluminum. It can darken it and cause pitting.
Cleaning windows and mirrors can be a real chore. But with this homemade cleaning solution, you’ll be able to get your home sparkling in no time. All you need are three ingredients, which you probably already have on hand.
Here’s how to make it:
 
– Combine one cup of vinegar, one tablespoon of liquid castile soap, and one teaspoon of rubbing alcohol in a spray bottle.
– Add 10 drops of orange essential oil and shake well to combine.
– Use this homemade cleaner as you would any other window cleaner
– Just spray it on a clean cloth or paper towel instead of directly onto the glass surface. This will help prevent streaks!
Place a small cup of vinegar and the juice of a lemon in the microwave and switch it on for 2 minutes. Leave the door closed for a further minute or so to steam, then open and simply wipe down the inside with a damp cloth. No need to awkwardly scrub!
When it comes to cleaning your stainless steel appliances, you might be surprised how easy it can be.
Here are our 3 tips on how to clean your stainless steel appliance:
 
1. Clean your stainless steel appliances with a microfiber cloth and warm water. You can use a soft sponge if you prefer. Make sure that the sponge or cloth is damp, but not soaking wet. Wipe down the surface of the appliance with gentle, circular motions. If any stains remain after cleaning, try wiping them away with some white vinegar diluted in water.
 
2. Use dish soap and hot water to remove stubborn stains from your stainless steel appliances. For best results, apply the dish soap directly onto the stain and let sit for several minutes before scrubbing gently with an abrasive sponge or pad (like an old toothbrush). Rinse well after cleaning so there’s no residue left behind!
 
3. Use baking soda as an abrasive cleaner for tough stains on your stainless steel appliance (like toothpaste splatters!). Sprinkle some baking soda over the stain until it’s completely covered, then let sit for about 15 minutes before rinsing off completely

The Ultimate Guide to Apartment Cleaning
 
Even with a small apartment, cleaning can be overwhelming. The best way to stay on top of it is to create a routine schedule of what to clean, when, and how. This apartment cleaning guide provides information on what to clean, how to clean it, and a few quick hacks that will help you get the job done fast.
 

Tubs and showers can produce some of the toughest grime, but it’s no match for the cleaning power of vinegar. To get rid of mildew, spray pure white vinegar on the offending area, let it sit for at least 30 minutes, and then rinse with warm water (don’t be afraid to use a sponge if rinsing doesn’t clear away the grossness on its own). Alternatively, try mixing together baking soda with a bit of liquid castile soap, then scrub and rinse.

For daily cleaning or to get rid of soap scum, mix 1 part water with 1 part vinegar (and a few drops of essential oils if you’re not into the smell of vinegar) in a spray bottle. Spray, let it sit for at least several minutes, and then wipe away.
