We are finally seeing a break in the
rain in San Antonio and so I thought I would share with you a few
ways to clean up around the house. All are easy and inexpensive and
can be done in a few hours of your day!
If you want to
clean the siding on your house use
JoMax and a pump up
sprayer. The formula is 1 pt of
JoMax, to 3 pts of bleach put
in a pump up sprayer filled with water. Spray down the siding and
let it work then rinse with clear water. If mold and mildew are the
30 Second Outdoor Cleaner and let it work
and rinse with water. If mold and mildew are a continuing problem on
your siding, after cleaning apply
Zep Clear Shell which is a
mold inhibitor and keep mold away for 18 months.
To clean your windows use Renz EZ
attached to your garden hose. Renz EZ will clean your windows
through the screens, and not leave any spots. The
applicator and Renz EZ soap is all you need to clean your
windows, even the ones on the second story are reachable with the
To clean the coils in the AC unit use
a product called
K.O. Dirt Blaster. Originally made for AC
window units this product will clean the dust and grime that builds
up on the coils and causes your AC to work harder and cool less
efficiently. Spray the
K.O. Dirt Blaster on the coils and
watch as the dust melts down. We used it in the store on our Coke
Machine that was not cooling and saved our machine from the junk
Kitchen cabinets develop oil build up
right where you grab to open them and will make the cabinets look
dark and dirty. Clean your wood stained cabinets with
. Fine Wood Cleaner will dissolve waxes;
remove oils, smoke and grime that will soften your wood cabinets. If
your cabinets are not dirty just look dull, use the
Feed and Wax
and bring back the glow in your wood cabinets. If your cabinets are
a painted finish, use a product from
Granite Gold called All
Cleaner. Granite Gold All Surface Cleaner
can be used on stainless steel, mirrors and ceramic tile. Of course
they make a granite and marble cleaner, sealer and polish that will
make taking care of your counter top easy and quick.
Clean your toilet, with Delete Germ
and a Flexi Scour.Flexi Scour is a screen that in
infused with pumice that is flexible and can clean all underneath the
curved rim of your toilet.
Delete Germ originally used in
hospitals because it is a disinfectant will clean out the hard water
build up in the rim of the toilet so that your toilet will flush
better. Install a Frugal Flush Flapper (it’s adjustable) in the
tank and make your flapper flush efficiently by dropping at the exact
time the water leaves the bowl, not any sooner so that you flush
twice and not any later so that you are wasting water.
Last but now least, if you have
developed green mildew on the porch and sidewalk the 30 Second
Outdoor Cleaner is the product that will clean it up. Simply use the
concentrated 30 Second
Outdoor Cleaner in a pump up sprayer,
no power washer needed and rinse with clear water.
I had a great tip that came in to the
store from my Bible Study leader, Sarah Jane Jones. A customer came
in and was talking to me about how difficult it was to move her large
Keurig coffee maker across her counter top when she needs to fill
with water. Sarah Jane said that she had the same problem and she
put those felt sliders that usually go on the bottom of chairs to the
bottom of the Keurig and now it slides easily across the counter.
Wow!! Why didn’t I think of that? So if moving your appliances on
the counter top is difficult for you, just apply the felt sliders to
everything from the coffee maker, toaster, your blender and make
everything move easy.
a Great Father’s Day!!
