Finding time to clean in a fast-paced environment has become more of a chore than ever. Women with hectic schedules can attest that convenience and effectiveness are key when dealing with the overabundance of stains, smudges, dirt and grime encountered daily. While cleaning is never a preferred activity, there are surefire methods to make the process less excruciating. Check out these helpful hints to save some extra time and energy:
Removing Red Wine Stains From Upholstery
There’s nothing quite as unsightly as a red wine stain on a light-colored couch or love seat. To remove red wine stains from upholstery, simply blot the area with a paper towel and sponge with warm water to dilute the stain’s concentration. Blot again and sprinkle talcum powder on the remaining stain. Let the powder stand for 2 or 3 minutes and then brush off. Repeat the sponging and blotting if the stain remains.
Removing Burned Food From Pots and Pans
Scorched food on pots and pans can cause a real headache when it comes to washing dishes. Often, no amount of elbow grease will remove a stubborn burned spot. Try pouring full-strength bleach on the scorched area and let it soak for 10 or 15 minutes. Fill the pan with hot water and continue the soaking process. This should clean off the entire area of burned residue. Remember to wash the pot or pan with soap and water to remove any leftover bleach.
