Wash and Polish the Car

You would be surprised at how much energy it takes for you to give your car a good wash and then polishing it with wax! Today it took three hours of back breaking aerobics just to wash and detail the outside of my car....log it under heavy cleaning in your cardio minutes.

Use an upside down wire hanging planter to display hanging ornaments

Buy a decorative hanging basket that can be turned upside down and hang your dangling ornaments like crystals, sun catchers and small wind chimes etc on it. Christmas tree bauble hooks are ideal to hang them up with.. Arrange them around the edge and if possible hang a main one in the centre. Looks attractive and you only have to pull down the whole basket to clean them.

Catch more dust and fluff with your broom

If you sprinkle a couple of drops of kerosene onto a soft broom it will collect fluff and dust better. Do this to the broom once a week.

Cleaning Baked on Grime without the Scrubbing

If you soak your baking dishes, oven racks or anything else that gets that baked on grime, soak overnight in a tub of some hot water and washing powder. Give it a wash the next day with normal detergent and all the grime is gone without scrubbing. Great for BBQ racks as well!
