Time to reveal some secrets!

Come closer as we are disclosing some ‘Never-Told-Before’ house cleaning tips – that require a minimum level of effort.

 How to clean a drain?

Secret Formula: ½ cup baking soda + 1 cup of vinegar + 1 gallon of warm water + ½ lemon = Clean Drain! 

Pour a half cup of baking soda into your drain. Then make a mixture with one cup of vinegar and a half lemon.
Once the mixture is ready, pour it down the drain and wait for about 5 minutes.

After that, pour a gallon of hot water in the drain. The hot water will wash away the mixture, leaving you with a clean drain.

How does this work?

Baking soda helps in cutting grease and other gunk left inside the pipe. The vinegar makes the baking soda turn into a foam that creates an agitation to clean up the drain.

 

 How to make an air freshener?

Secret Formula: Lemon peel + 1 teaspoon of cinnamon + 2 cups of water = Fresh air!

How does this work?

When you boil the cinnamon and zest, sweet smells get distributed evenly into the air – spreading fragrances all over your house.
