5 Neat Tricks you can try at home

Cleaning your toothbrush



Your toothbrush can be a home to millions of germs! Therefore, it is essential that you keep your toothbrush clean. Pour several tablespoons of white vinegar into a glass jar and soak your toothbrush in it for at least 15 to 30 minutes.


Cleaning your Iron

Ironing a white shirt with a steam iron on an ironing board


  1. Spread a generous amount of salt on your ironing board
  2. Turn off the steam option of your iron before turning it to the highest setting.
  3. When heated, iron over the salt. Any dirt on your iron will stick to the salt, leaving you with a clean and shiny iron!


Sanitizing sponges



We keep our houses clean with sponges, but how do we keep the sponges clean before their life span is over? Simply place them in the microwave for a few minutes. This will help to kill the germs in your sponge.


Removing rust spots from knives



Sometimes your knives may develop some rust spots, which you may find hard to remove. Fret not, as it is really quite simple to remove them. Just let your knives (and even other rusty silverware!) soak in lemon juice for 15 minutes or as long as it takes for the rust spots to disappear.


Cleaning your blender



Instead of disassembling your blender, the way to really get your blades clean is to fill your blender with soap and warm water, then turn it on.
