3 easy hacks for cleaning your home

cleaningKeeping your house clean is essential to ensure that your appliances, furniture and floors last. We at Artisan Electric have found 3 ways that can make cleaning your home easier.

  • Clean your microwave and sponge in 2 minutes

Get your sponge wet and put it in the microwave on high for two minutes. The heat will kill the bacteria that gets stuck in the sponge while at the same time attacking the mess in your microwave.

  • Get any stain out of the carpet with hydrogen peroxide and soap

We love our pets, but they can track in all kinds of things and destroy carpets over time. Just pat down the stain with a towel, mix a little bit of hydrogen peroxide with dawn soap and pour it directly onto the stain. It also works for mattresses.

  • Clean your washing machine with just 3 ingredients

Because washing machines are constantly wet from the number of washes you have to do regularly, mildew and other bacteria get trapped in there and make your clean clothes not-so-clean.

To start, fill your washer with the most amount of water at the highest temperature with the longest run time. Then as the washing machine is being filled, add a quart of white vinegar and a cup of baking soda.

Close the lid and let the two mix for a minute or two. Then, lift the lid back up and dip a toothbrush into the mixture inside the washing machine and use that to clean the lid. Leave the lid up for an hour so the mixture is able to tackle all of the dirt. After that, let the cycle run.

Once the cycle is over, run the water again but only with a quarter of vinegar, this will get rid of the residue from the previous wash.

Now all you need to do is wipe down the inside of the washing machine and you’re good to go.
