Lemon juice removes old stains from clothes

You can easily remove old stains from clothes with the help of lemon juice. Lemon juice is especially good for light fabrics. Apply some lemon juice on the stain and hang out your clothes to the direct sunlight. Direct sunlight boosts bleaching action.The UV rays help the citric acid in the lemon juice to enhance the stain removal. Then wash the clothes as usual.

Let’s make an experiment. Take an item with an old stain.

 

 

 

 

 

Apply some lemon juice on the stain. We used concentrated lemon juice for baking. Rub the stain softly with a brush or an old toothbrush.

 

 

 

 

Hang out your clothes on the direct sunlight for 20-25 minutes. Be sure that the sunlight hits the stain directly.

 

 

 

 

Then wash as usual and dry.

It works!

Clean a hook-and-loop fastener

The hook-and-loop fastener looses its efficiency when it gets soiled with dust, hair and lint.

First, wash the hook-and-loop fastener with warm soapy water to clean grease and dirt. Then take a fine-tooth comb and start combing out along the rows in one direction.
The rest can be removed easily with your fingers or tweezers. You can comb out the dirt with a stiff toothbrush or any brush with hard bristles as well.

Always keep your hook-and-loop fastener fastened when washing garments or shoes. To decrease the number of dust, spray the hook-and-loop fastener with antistatic spray.

How to clean a baby carpet safely

Vacuum the entire carpet twice in different directions. Stains on carpets can be cleaned with a solution of water, ammonia and baking soda. Take a liter of water and 3 tablespoons of ammonia and mix the ingredients. Sprinkle baking soda on the carpet. Take your carpet brush, soak it in the solution and sweep out the baking soda in the same direction. Once the carpet is completely dry, vacuum the rest of baking soda once again.

Using natural cleaners is the safest way to clean baby rugs. Chemicals may stay on the carpet after cleaning and can cause the irritation of baby skin. Baking soda is a natural remedy and it is absolutely NON-toxic. Baking soda does not cause allergic reactions.

Juice and fruit stains on the carpet can be easily removed with hot soapy water.

Tea stains can be removed with vinegar. Mix one part vinegar with two parts water and apply to the stain. Use an old toothbrush for removing small stains.

Fine salt is an effective cleaning agent for grease stains. Pour some salt on the stain, let it set for a few minutes and then rub it with a wet cloth. Remove the rest with a vacuum cleaner.

How to remove rust stains from metal

Rust stains from metal can be removed easily with a mixture of lemon juice and salt. Rub the rust stain thoroughly and let the mixture soak for 5 hours. Wipe off the rest with a cloth.

Another means to remove rust stains from metal is baking soda. Make a paste of baking soda and water and apply the mixture with a toothbrush on the stain. Let it soak for a while, then wipe it off. Repeat if necessary.

To prevent rust, coat the surface with some wax. Wax protects the metal against water and avoids the problem of rusting.

Take care of your toothbrush properly

  • After use, the toothbrush should be thoroughly cleaned to get rid of possible bacteria and viruses that appear during brushing. Dentists recommend to rinse your toothbrush with mouth rinse or with tap water.
  • While storing always put your toothbrush in a vertical position to allow it to air dry naturally. Keep the brushes separated. Use a personal toothbrush holder for each member of the family. Do not store them in a closed container to prevent growth of bacteria.
  • Do not share your toothbrush with another person. Buy toothbrushes of different colors to avoid sharing between members of the family.
  • After 2 months of use throw a toothbrush in the trash. Replace the toothbrush each time you get sick.
  • If you travel a lot, dry your toothbrush before packing it into a travel container.
