Grout Cleaning

A Spring Cleaning Recipe for Grout!

Pour into a spray bottle and spray your floor or shower stall walls, let it sit for a minute or two... then scrub.

Descaling Your Steam Iron

Steam iron tired and not steaming like it used to?

Mix 1-2 Tablespoons of liquid descaler to your tank water. ( Use your iron's filler cup silly!)
Set iron sole plate down on a cake rack over the sink and allow to steam until the tank is empty.
This can be repeated several times if calcification build up is bad!
Flush the tank several times with fresh water until you're satisfied the tank is clean and no deposites are
being flushed out!

Sister's iron has a 'calc clean' button to encourage a higher volume of steam, so a tooth pick comes in handy to
keep the button depressed, allowing sister to continue with domestic chores whilst the steaming works it's magic!

Sister recommends following this up with a commercially available 'hot iron' sole plate cleaner. (following the manufacturer’s
instructions of course!) This can also be repeated several times if your sole is particularly unclean!

In no time at all your iron will be steaming away like new and gliding effortlessly over your precious fabrics!

Easy Chemical Free Oven Cleaning

Who enjoys oven cleaning? Not this sister that's for sure!

Here's a way you can clean your oven without those nasty chemicals or the smoke from pyrolytic oven cleaning

Simply fill an oven safe casserole about one third full with water. Lid off of course!
Set your oven to about 240C (450F) and heat for around 30 to 60 minutes to loosen dirt and grease with steam.
Let your oven cool, then wipe off the condensation and the grease will come off with it.

If stubborn spots persist, scrub with a paste of baking soda and lemon

Sister recommends never letting spills sit on the oven floor for days (or months).
Never let such mess get to the oven floor in the first place.
Use a spare baking try beneath what you're cooking to catch any spill overs.


Sister recommends a similar method to clean spills from your microwave!
Simply partly fill a cup or suitable vessel with water and bring to boil for a minute or two.
Let the interior cool a little before wiping out the inside of your microwave with a soft, damp cloth to remove the condesation and dirt with it.
Don't for get the door and never use abrasives!
