Beyond the typical household cleaning tasks that involve floors, furniture, fixtures, and more are some unique surfaces or materials that need to be cleaned, too. Here are some ways to address those items:
• For a gentle paint remover for your hands, use vegetable oil instead of paint thinner
• You can use this gentle cleaner for your garage floor or patio or kitchen floor: Mix ¼ cup of mild dishwashing liquid with 2 gallons warm water and apply. Rinse with clean water and air dry.
• When cleaning your vehicle’s exterior, do not use anything abrasive on the finish – that means no grit, such as baking soda, or anything acidic like vinegar. Try mixing several squirts or ¼ cup of mild liquid dishwashing detergent with 1 gallon of water in a bucket. Get some suds going, throw in the sponge, and clean away! Rinse with clean water, use a squeegee, and buff the car dry with a clean cloth.
