Cleaning is nobody’s favorite chore, but lucky for you, the internet is full of tips and ideas to make this thankless task a painless one.
Rings on Wooden Surfaces
Let’s face it, most people don’t automatically reach for a coaster every time they want to set down their sweaty drink. To remedy those unsightly rings on wooden surfaces, all you’ll need is a hair dryer. Blow-dry the surface at close proximity and refresh the wood post-drying with olive oil.
Oil Stains on Fabric
As you likely already know, there are about a million uses for baking soda. This magical substance can be used to eliminate the unsavory smells in your fridge or cure an acidic tummy ache. To add to its seemingly never ending roster of capabilities, baking soda can also be used to absorb unwanted oil from fabric surfaces, such as clothes, your sofa, and even your carpet.
A Smelly Blender
Cleaning a blender the old fashioned way can be a tedious task that almost makes you want to put your device in storage for good. It tends to be a push-pull between trying to reach far enough to clean the blender bottom, while also actively avoiding being cut by the sharp blades, which also happen to be at the bottom. An infinitely simpler way to get this frustrating task out of the way is to fill the blender with warm water and a drop of dish soap, then simple press “on” and let the blender do all the work! Just don’t forget to put the lid on!
Baked on Food Residue
In addition to providing a flavorful kick to your cooking, sea salt can also be used as a cleaning agent. Its course nature makes it the perfect choice to clean the baked-on and burnt residue off of cast iron pans.
