Spring Cleaning---Part 4 and 5

Thursday's Tip

For the Kitchen:

Stainless Steel Appliances

For streak free appliances,
use a soft cloth with vinegar
and wipe in the direction of 
the grain.


For those stuck on pieces,
use a toothpick to dislodge
anything hanging around.

Stinky Garbage Disposal

Toss in a 1/2 orange or lemon,
turn on the disposal to grind 
up the rind now you have citrus 
smelling disposal. we do this
a lot. Some say it also helps
to sharpen the blade.

Office---Work or Home



*Mr Ken's biggest rule
Please do not eat or drink 
over the keyboard. Neither 
is good if something spilled.
Q-tips dipped in a small bit 
of rubbing alcohol can be 
used between the keys.


Using equal parts vinegar to 
water and a microfiber cloth. 
Wipe the cool monitor to de 
smudge it.

Use sanitizing wipes to clean 

phones, tablets, cell phones
and remotes.

*For those of who don't know,

Mr. Ken lives and breathes 
computers at work each day.

Friday's Tip


Use the dust first then vacuum
Go through your closets and 
drawers,donate anything that
is not worn any longer.

My favorite:

To clean a ceiling fan-place an 
old pillowcase over each blade, 
wipe clean-all the dust from the 
blades stays in the case and 
doesn't flutter all over the place.
Take the pillowcase outside, shake 
out and throw in the laundry.

Hope you have enjoyed this series.

Happy Cleaning!!!
