Creative Cost Efficient Cleaning
Winning windows - spray with dishwasher rinse aid and dry them with old newspapers for sparkling results that last.
Economical furniture polish - two parts olive oil mixed with one part lemon juice.
Fragrant carpets - sprinkle with bicarbonate of soda; leave for two hours and then vacuum away the bicarbonate together with the neutralized smells and the dirt.

Shining stainless steel appliances - wipe down with vinegar or soda water and buff vigorously to bring out the shine.
Fabulous flasks - a bottle brush for babies after soaking the flask with bicarbonate of soda and water will do the trick.
Mildew free shower curtains - soak your shower curtain in water with chlorine bleach and then use a brisk vinegar wipe to get rid of the soapy water marks.
Colorful crayon marks erased - re-heat the wax with your hair dryer and then wipe the wall mural away.
Musty odors minimized - a small box of pieces of chalk absorb the moisture and keep musty odors under control.
Freshly fragrant fridge - stir three tablespoons of bicarbonate of soda into a liter of water and then wipe down all the surfaces ... sanitized and deodorized.
