Random Tips on Tuesday

Cleaning Crayon off Walls Tip. For removing crayon off walls or doors simply heat on a low setting with a hairdryer and wipe off with a wet slightly soaped cloth.

Carpet Stains from pets, kids, etc.... - Spray - n - Wash...just spray it on the stain and either use paper towels to gently rub or use a small carpet cleaner and they come right up and there isn't a smell left either.

Cleaning Hint. Use liquid laundry detergent (half cup to 20 ounces water). Put in spray bottle. Good to use in bathroom & soap scum. For sink & toilet, add teaspoon alcohol to the cleaner to disinfect.

Chewing Gum on Clothes. Use a can of pressured air (the kind for cleaning keyboards) for getting chewing gum out. If you hold it upside down while spraying, the air that comes out will instantly freeze chewing gum - allowing you to pick it right off.

Bug-Free Room
• Put a couple of drops of lavender or peppermint essential oil on a cool light bulb to help repel bugs.
• Place several drops of oil of lavender or peppermint on a cotton ball or two. Put them into a small jar or margarine container. Poke a few holes in the lid and cover. Put around the room.
