1. Clean fan blades with some spare pillowcases, use one of them to slide onto the blades of your ceiling fans and then wipe the blades off inside the case. No more dust in your face!
2. To remove pet hair from your carpet you can use your old squeegee.
3. Even rubber gloves can also serve the same purpose as the pet hair will stick to it, like the magnet sticks to iron dust.
4. To clean regular stains from your carpet generally due to soft drink spills, pet stains, etc. You can try some common cleanser that you use to clean glass or wooden surface, put a dry cloth over the stain where you have applied the cleanser, and put your Iron over it for a minute or half then repeat the process few times; finally, the stain will be removed completely.
5. To fix scratches and cleaning old tables you can use a mixture of 1/2 cup vinegar with 1/2 cup of olive oil. It will work like magic. Just try it once.
6. To remove white marks from your dining/drawing table (generally due to putting hot cups over its surface or hot tea or coffee spills maybe) you can use your iron to completely remove them.
7. Just put some folded linen napkins over the surface where the marks lie. The idea is to put several layers of cloth to reduce/stabilize the heat effect of iron. Iron over the napkins in a gentle manner for 15 sec. then remove the napkins, your marks will be gone.
8. To clean your room’s glass windows you can use a homemade cleanser solution consisting of vinegar, water, and dish soap mixture. Spray the solution on your windows. Gently use a white cloth to wipe it and let them dry and clean your windows with a wadded up newspaper.
9. To clean your window blinds you can take equal parts of vinegar and lukewarm water in a bowl. Slip an old sock on your hand; wipe it once while it is dry. Then dip the sock into the solution and wipe all the grimy dirt away. When your sock gets really dirty, rinse it in some clean water and repeat the cleaning process.
10. To remove permanent marks by marker pens and other rigid marks you can try applying toothpaste over the area, take a damp washcloth and then rub like crazy to get rid of them.
11. Keep your pets out from the sensitive zone – If you want to keep Snowball and Fluffy out of the kids’ playroom, or discourage them from using your favourite easy chair as a scratching post.
12. Sprinkle some full-strength distilled white vinegar around the area or onto the object itself. Cats don’t like the smell of vinegar and will avoid it.
