Unbelievable Tips For Keeping A Clean Home

Keeping your home clean in Matthews, NC may be harder than you ever imagined. You want your home to look its best, but you don’t actually want to do any of the work. We understand and that is why we want to share some of these unbelievable tips with you.

  • Instead of dusting with a feather duster, use a lint roller. This will keep all of the dirt trapped, and make it easy to dust things like shelves, lampshades, and more.
  • When you are cleaning the stove, it can be the bane of your existence. Once you have cleaned the flat surface stove, you can use car wax as a way of feeling the surface. The next time there is grease or some kind of spill over, it will be much easier to clean up. If you have greasy gas burners, you can place them in a sealed plastic bag with some ammonia and leave them to sit for a few hours or overnight.
  • If you are trying to remove baked on food, put a non-toxic dryer sheet in a pan for an hour and watch how much easier it is to get the food off.
  • When you want to clean up stainless steel, whether it is the drain of your shower, your kitchen sink, or anywhere else, the trick is to use powdered laundry detergent and hot water. Let it sit for an hour or two and then rinse it away.

There are plenty of tips and hacks to keep a clean home, and when you discover them, keeping your home clean will be a lot easier.

Prep For Your BBQ To Keep It Safe

When you live in Matthews, NC, you may want to BBQ from time to time outdoors. This means setting up the grill and prepping some food to cook. You want to make sure that everything is prepped properly for your BBQ so that you can keep the entire situation (and your home) safe.

Before you even think about cooking on the grill, check the gas tank if you are cooking with gas. Be sure that there is no rust around the edges, and make sure there is no leak. You can do this by running cold soapy water around the outside of the tank. If there is bubbling, it means that there is a leak and you need to discard the tank.

You also want to be sure you clean the BBQ thoroughly. This will be the same whether you are using a charcoal or gas grill. If there is grease, fat, or other kind of food buildup, it can lead to sparks and flare-ups that can result in a fire if you are not careful.

Always set the grill up approximately 20 feet from the home and never within an enclosed patio. You also want to make sure that you are watching the grill at all times. If you need to run into the house for something, you need to either ask someone else to watch the grill or turn the heat down. This will ensure that there are no problems while you are gone.

Cooking out on the grill can be a lot of fun, and when you take the time to prep, you can focus on safety throughout the experience.
