7 Handy Household Hints for Your Spring Clean ...


With spring just around the corner, I thought I would share some handy household hints for your spring clean. I have learnt some of these tips from my mother and grandmother and have picked up others along the way. These tips will help keep your house fresh and clean and take some of the strain out of cleaning. Some people find cleaning something of a chore but I actually quite enjoy it and find it quite therapeutic. I put some music on and class it as a bit of a workout. It can actually be very satisfying when you sit back and see the fruits of your labour, until someone comes in and messes it all up again! Here are some household hints to help make housework that little bit easier.

1. Stained Coffee Cups

Stained Coffee Cups

I hate to perpetuate those stereotypes but as a Brit, I do enjoy my cup of tea. This regular indulgence can take its toll on your mugs and gorgeous china cups, so one of my favorite household hints is one which will help keep your cups clean and guest ready. The last thing you want is to churn a guest's stomach with a stained tea or coffee cup, so one of the natural ways to clean them is with salt. Just scrub the stains off with a sponge or cloth. If you need something that's a little more heavy duty, mix equal parts of distilled malt vinegar and salt.
