One of the most reliable ways we can avoid food stains in our containers is to rinse and clean them immediately after using them, of course. But often, life gets in the way, and we don’t have the time to do it right away and end up dropping our containers in the sink until we get home at the end of the day.
However, if you fill them with hot water and a little bit of dish soap, it will make the cleaning process so much easier and keep all of the greasy and oil stains away because of the detergent. This will help prevent food stains, but it will also make it easier to clean up any excess leftovers.
Deodorize Your Trash Bin
The smell of a trash bin can quickly ruin the atmosphere of even the most beautiful house. But the quick fix is — you guessed it — baking soda.
After you take out the trash and replace it with a new bag, sprinkle a generous amount of baking soda at the bottom of the bag. As your trash fills up, you should still find that unpleasant smells are greatly diminished.
Extinguish an Oil or Grease Fire
Did you know that many fire extinguishers contain baking soda? This is because baking soda reacts with the heat of the fire, producing carbon dioxide which smothers and extinguishes the flames.
However, though baking soda can be very helpful when putting out a small oil or grease fire, it is not suggested to use this on a larger fire. If you have any doubt, it’s always best to call 911!
Most of the time, our fridge is in perfect condition - like something out of a refrigerator commercial. Other times, not so much. We place one item where it's not supposed to be, and all of a sudden, things get out of hand.
At first, it may not bother you, but when spilled food starts piling up, it can smell up the fridge. Guess what eliminates those messes in a split-second? WD-40!
Grease & Grime
BBQs are one of our favorite summer activities, but cleaning a grill after a Sunday cookout can be quite an annoying task to accomplish, one that may make you wish you didn't invite 15 of your closest friends over to begin with.
The burnt leftovers can be a hard one to clean up, but WD-40 can help you out with this one too! Spray it onto the grill for an easy way to wipe away grease and grime.
