Smoking isn’t good for you it can cause some serious issues to your health. Most people who smoke cigarettes in their homes usually have a problem with smoke-stained walls. When the smoke from cigarettes stains your walls and ceilings this can be an issue because it will create a brownish-orange color on your walls and not only that but it will make them smell like cigarettes as well. So I am going to show you how to clean smoke off of walls.

 

 

What you should do first

Before you clean the smoke stain you have to loosen it up first. You need to use a vacuum with a brush attachment and run it all over the wall.

 

 

How to clean cigarette smoke off of walls with vinegar

To clean cigarette smoke stains off of walls with vinegar you first need to get a spray bottle and pour 1-2 cups of white vinegar into it. THen add 1cup of lemon juice (not the one you drink). Shake the mixture and spray it all over the walls. Then use a microfiber cloth to gently scrub away the stains.

The stains aren’t really that easy to get rid of so you may have to keep spraying and scrubbing until the smoke stains start to disappear.

Make sure you are wearing gloves and a mask.

 

Cleaning away smoke stains using dawn dish soap and Baking soda

For this method, you will be creating your own cleaner. Mix together 1 gallon of hot water, 6 tablespoons of dish soap, and 2 cups of baking soda.  Dip a rag into the mixture and use it to scrub the walls. Keep scrubbing until the stains become barely visible.

 

 

Use salt, baking soda, and warm water

Another way to get rid of cigarettes stains is to mix 1/2 cup of salt, 1 cup of baking soda, and  1 and a half cups of warm water. Now use a rag to clean away the cigarette smoke stain off your walls and ceilings. This may take a while so be patient.

 

 

Repaint the walls/ceiling

If you want to repaint the walls over the cigarette smoke without cleaning away the smoke stains first, well unfortunately you cant. You have to clean away the stains before you can paint them. Now I know some of you might be wondering what is the best paint to use to cover cigarette smoke and It depends on the type of paint you already had.

When painting your walls you could do it by yourself but personally, I would get a professional to do It since they would know how to properly cover the walls.

 

 

How to prevent cigarette smoke stains

There really isn’t an effective way to prevent cigarette smoke stains on your walls and ceiling if you will continue smoking inside your home. The best way to prevent this is if you go outside to smoke instead of doing it in your home.

 

 

Conclusion

If you are still having trouble removing the smoke stains from your walls then you need to hire a professional to deal with that. I hope this article was helpful to you and if you want more deep cleaning hacks then you should click here.

 

 

Collecting and using rainwater might not seem like a bad thing because it is cheap and it is also very frugal. However is rainwater clean and safe to use? Well after reading through this article you might change your mind about using it the same way you had before.

 

 

Is rainwater safe to drink

This may come as a surprise to many but rainwater is indeed safe to drink. Rainwater supplies a lot of the world’s population with water. However, this doesn’t mean you should drink it without cleaning it. Rainwater is very dirty because when it r falls from the sky it passes through the clouds and picks up a lot of contamination on its way down. This is even worse if you live near a power plant. That is inst the only way rainwater can be contaminated, it can also be contaminated when it runs off plants and buildings. Plants usually have toxic chemicals on them and this can make the rainwater unsafe to drink.

 

 

Germs found in rainwater

Rainwater contains a lot of bacteria, chemicals, and parasites which can lead to sickness. Since rainwater usually runs down from rooftops there could also be feces particles in it as well.

 

 

How do you make rainwater safe for drinking

There are a couple of ways to make rainwater clean and safe to drink. You can boil it,  which will destroy any germs and pathogens that are in it.  Another way to clean rainwater is to use some sort of filtration that will remove any harmful bacteria and chemicals from it.

 

 

Best ways to use rainwater

If you don’t want to use rainwater to drink or bathe anymore but still don’t want to waste it, well don’t worry you don’t have it because you can still use it to water the plants in your home. You can even store the water to use in case there is no running water, but remember you have to boil the water first to help get rid of the bacteria that are inside of it.

Also before collecting rainwater you have to check with your local regulations to see if you are allowed to store it because a lot of places do not allow this.

 

 

 

Often times electric kettles usually start to develop scales in them. This usually happens when you barely clean inside of the kettle. However, there are some incredible methods to get rid of these scales out of your kettle now only that but using these methods will also deodorize your kettle making it smell way better than before.

 

 

Why are there scales in my electric kettle?

The scales that you see in your kettle are minerals that fell to the bottom of your kettle when the water was boiling in it. How fast this scale builds up really depends on the water type in your area. If you live in an area with hard water then you’ll have this problem more frequently compared to somewhere that doesn’t have hard water.

 

 

How to clean an electric kettle with vinegar

Vinegar is the perfect choice to go with when cleaning a kettle. This is because vinegar acidity while mild is still very good at breaking down the mineral build-up inside the kettle.

 

Steps to clean kettle with vinegar:

Step 1

Pour 1 cup of vinegar and 2 cups of water into the kettle.

Step 2

Turn on the kettle and let the vinegar and water boil inside of it.

Step 3

After that let the vinegar and water sit in the kettle for a couple of hours or just leave it overnight. Then the next morning you should pour out the vinegar/water out of the kettle.

Step 4

Pour some water inside of the kettle and let it boil, then pour out the water and repeat. Doing this will remove the vinegar smell from your kettle.

 

 

Cleaning an electric kettle with baking soda

Using baking soda to clean away the mineral build-up inside a kettle is great because baking soda is known to have great cleaning capabilities.

Steps to clean kettle with baking soda:

 

Step 1

Sprinkle 6 tablespoons worth of baking soda into the kettle and add 2-3 cups of water to it.

Step 2

Let the water boil for around 7 minutes.

Step 3

Then use a soft cleaning brush to clean inside the kettle. Then rinse inside of it with cold water.

How to clean a kettle with dawn dish soap

Cleaning a kettle with dawn dish soap is rather simple. All you have to do is pour 3 cups of water into the kettle and add 4 squirts of dawn dish soap. Mix the soap with the water so it can become sudsy and let it boil. After letting the water boil wait for it to cool down then use a cleaning sponge to clean the inside of the kettle. Make sure that you remove the mineral scale build-up when cleaning the kettle. Then after doing that, just rinse inside the kettle.

 

 

Cleaning outside a kettle

When cleaning outside a kettle there are two things that you should focus on. The first one is obviously making the kettle clean and the second one is making it look good by polishing it.

 

 

Cleaning the exterior of a kettle

There are a couple of ways how to clean outside of a kettle but I will show you two of the best methods to do so.

 

Using vinegar

To clean the outside of a kettle with vinegar you need to get a clean damp microfiber cloth and pour 1/2 cup fo vinegar onto it. Now use the vinegar-soaked cloth to wipe the kettle. Vinegar is great for cleaning stainless steel so you don’t have to worry about it damaging your kettle.

 

Using dish soap

You can use any type of dish soap you want but the one I recommend is dawn. This is because dawn dish soap is an excellent degreaser and it is also one of the best things to use when cleaning stainless steel.

To clean the exterior of your kettle with dawn dish soap you need to get a microfiber cloth and squirt 1 drop of dish soap onto it. Then use the cloth to wipe the kettle and then use another damp cloth to remove the soap.

 

Polishing the kettle

To polish your kettle you need to get a clean microfiber cloth and add 1 tablespoon of olive oil to it. THen use the cloth to shine the kettle (only do this for stainless steel kettles). After doing that use another dry cloth to wipe the kettle again. The reason why you should do this again is that with the second wipe you’ll make the kettle shiny while also getting rid of the grease.

 

 

How to prevent limescale build-up in the kettle

It’s been said that placing unpeeled onions in your house can clean the air by removing certain bacteria and viruses from it. I’ve personally heard this before and I still believed it. There is no scientific proof that onions will absorb bacteria and viruses from a person or from the air itself. This is an old folk tale and we all know that not everything we hear from these “tales” is true.

Back in my home country, I used to believe this and the reason why I did was that when I was sick my mother would always cut an onion in half and place it in my room. I wasn’t the type of person to stay sick for very long so I just assumed that the onion had something to do with me recovering fast but it turns out that wasn’t the case and I could recover quickly on my own by just resting and eating properly.

 

 

Why onions absorbing bacteria doesn’t work

First of all, if onions could even absorb bacteria this wouldn’t really help you to recover quickly or prevent you from getting sick because the number of bacteria it would need to absorb would be too much. Second of all, it is scientifically impossible for onions to absorb germs and bacteria from a person.

 

 

Do Onions have health benefits?

Of course, onions have a lot of benefits and I am going to list some here:

  • They are packed with nutrients
  • Helps contain blood sugar
  • It may help digestive health

There are a lot more benefits that onions have and if you are interested in them you should click here

 

 

FAQs About Onions

 

Do onions kill bacteria in your mouth?

Onions are said to not only kill bacteria in your mouth but also help to strengthen your teeth as well. This will only be effective if you eat the onion raw. Some say that onions are also good for helping to treat teeth infections, however, I do not know if this is true or not.

 

Is a cut onion poisonous?

The simple answer to this is NO. If you cut an onion you don’t have to worry about it being poisonous. You can cut an onion and leave it in the refrigerator for up to 7 days without it being dangerous to your health. However, I do not recommend leaving a cut onion on the counter for several days and then using it afterward.

 

Do smelling onions help you sleep?

Onions do help some people to sleep because they contain L-tryptophan which is a form of amino acid that acts as a sedative. This will help relax the nerves and helps you to sleep. However this does not mean it will work for everybody, this will not even work if you have insomnia.

 

 

Conclusion

While onions can clean the air by absorbing bacteria, germs, and viruses they still do have some benefits when you eat them. I hope this article taught you something new.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Often times our bathroom sink drains gets dirty really fast and easily. You may wonder why? And this is because stuff like hair, dirt, and grime usually builds up in the sink making running water harder to flow through and also making the sink have a bad smell. However, there are a few ways to clean a dirty bathroom sink drain and I am going to show you; them.

 

 

Best ways to clean bathroom sink drain

There are a couple of ways to clean the bathroom sink drain but out of all of them, one of them is really necessary and not optional. I’m talking about removing hair from the sink. If you are someone who does their hair in the bathroom chances are you probably have some hair in your bathroom sink drain. It is very important to remove hair before you clean the sink drain.

I am going to show you how to remove hair from your sink as doing this will make the cleaning process much faster.

 

 

How to remove hair from bathroom sink drain

To remove hair from your sink drain you first need to remove the drains stopper and see if you can clear the hair from the sink using your fingers (make sure you are wearing gloves) but if the hair is too far down then you need to use an unclogging gel. If you are planning on using an unclogging gel then make sure to read the instructions on the bottle to avoid messing something up.

 

 

Baking soda and vinegar

When you mix both vinegar and baking soda together, they make the best sink drain cleaner. The acidic nature of the vinegar and the powder thick form of the baking soda makes cleaning and even unclogging sinks easy. To clean your sink drain with baking soda you first need to mix 1 cup of vinegar and 5 tablespoons of baking soda together. After mixing them together this should create a thick pasty mixture (if the mixture inst thick and pasty, don’t worry, you can still use it). Now remove the sink drain stopper and pour some of the mixtures into the drain. After pouring the mixture into the drain, let the mixture sit for an hour then use running water to clear away the mixture.

 

Option 2

There is another way you can use baking soda and vinegar to clean your sink drain. For this option, you need to remove the drain stopper and sprinkle the baking soda in the drain, then pour 1 cup of vinegar into the drain as well. After doing this you’ll realize that when the vinegar and baking soda comes into contact they will start to bubble up, this is a good thing.

 

 

Boiling water and dawn dish soap

To clean your sink drain with boiling water and dish soap you first need to pour 1/2 gallon of boiling water (slowly pour into the drain). After pouring the boiling water into the drain wait 7 minutes then pour some cool water into it. Remove the drain stopper then squeeze the dawn dish soap into the drain (make sure to squeeze a lot). Let the dish soap sit in the drain overnight and then the next morning you should rinse the drain with running water (just turn on the faucet).

 

 

How to get rid of smelly drains in the bathroom

This is a question that is frequently asked but surprisingly it hasn’t been answered properly. When most people talk about deodorizing smelly drains in the bathroom they are talking about deep cleaning them however some people may just want to deodorize their bathroom sink drain without having to deep clean.

To get rid of a smelly sink drain you need to remove the stopper and pour 1-2 cups of bleach. After pouring the bleach pour 1 cup of Fabuloso disinfectant into the drain as well. Doing this will make your bathroom sink smell better.

 

Conclusion

As you can see by reading this article; cleaning a sink drain isn’t hard at all. If you tried all of these methods and none worked for then it’s best to get professional help but  I know that at least one of these methods will work for you.

 

Washing a baseball hat is actually really simple. But I do understand why some people would have some issues cleaning theirs. Sometimes the hat may not have been cleaned for a long time which means there is a lot of dust and dirt built upon them. Usually, if the baseball cap has a dark color you won’t have to worry about it being too dirty because the dust/dirt won’t be too visible. However the same cannot be said for a light-colored hat because this hat looks ten times worse than a dark-colored hat when dirty. If you have a dirty baseball hat without ruining it whether it’s light or dark-colored don’t worry because in this article I will show you how to clean your baseball hat using some simple methods.

 

 

Cleaning a hat with a toothbrush ( Spot cleaning)

This method is for hats that aren’t too dirty and only have a few stains on them. Cleaning hats like these are the easiest and that’s why I listed this method first.  The first thing you need to do when you are about to clean a hat with a toothbrush is to look for the spots that you need to clean hence the name “spot cleaning”. After spotting the stains it is now time to clean them.

When spot cleaning a hat you can use several different options but today I am going to show you 2 of them.

 

Option 1 Using soap

This method is pretty simple all you have to do is get a small container with water and add your favorite soap or detergent to it. You can add dish soap, laundry detergent, or oxi clean (make sure your hat isn’t made out of any material that oxi clean will damage). Just don’t use anything that contains bleach or any other harsh chemicals. After that dip the hat into the soapy water and then dip the toothbrush inside of it as well. After doing that you should use the toothbrush to gently scrub the stains that you see on the hat and let the soap sit on the stain for a couple of minutes. After doing this your hat will be looking cleaner than ever.

 

Option 2 vinegar and baking soda

I’m just going to get straight to the point. The first thing you need to do is mix both vinegar and baking soda together in a small dish or bowl. After doing that dip the hat that you want to clean in water and then place the baking soda and vinegar mixture onto the stains on the hat. Let the stains sit on the hat for an hour then rinse the hat.

Only use this option if the hat is white because it may damage the color on darker hats.

 

 

Soaking method

This method is really simple and similar to the previous one. To clean your baseball hat by soaking it you first need to get a bucket of warm water and add 1 cup of vinegar and 2 cups of your favorite laundry detergent. After that place the hat inside the bucket of water and let it soak for an hour. After an hour just rinse the hat with cold water and let it air dry.

 

 

Cleaning a baseball hat in the washing machine

A lot of people usually ask if it’s ok to wash a baseball cap or any other hat in the washing machine and to that, I have to say; it depends. If the hat doesn’t have any cardboard in it. You can definitely wash your hat using the washer but it’s best to stick to your hands, however, I am still going to show you how to clean your hat using the washing machine.

All you have to do Is place the hat inside the washer and use your favorite detergent. Set the time to a low one and after washing the hat place it in the dryer.

Again while this will clean your hat you have to be careful about using the washing machine might damage your hat over time.

 

 

Hand washing method

You might be wondering if washing with hands isn’t the same as washing the hat with a toothbrush and to that, I have to say “no”. This method just involves using your hands and nothing else.

 

For this method, all you have to do is place the hat inside a container filled with water and add any laundry detergent into it. After that use your hands to clean the hat by squeezing and rubbing it together. After doing this you should let the hat soak for 15 minutes then use your hands to clean it again. Then rinse the cap under running water.

Most people hate when their clothes shrink. Oftentimes when this happens it can ruin the look of the clothes and if you decide to wear it you have to pull it down to your waist over and over again especially if it’s a shirt or blouse. But don’t worry because in this article I will show you how to unshrink your clothes using some simple methods.

 

 

 

What causes clothes to shrink

Most clothes usually shrink when we wash them. Especially if we wash them in warm water. However, this does not mean that if you wash your clothes in cold water they won’t shrink. Most clothes are made out of different types of fabric and often times when that fabric comes in contact with water they usually relax and when this happens the yarns retract and shrink.

 

 

How to unshrink your clothes

When unshrinking your clothes you have to think about the different types of fabric you are dealing with. Some clothes that are made out of cotton will most likely be easier to unshrink than clothes made out of wool. However, unshrinking them still uses the same method it just depends on how long you do it.

 

Unshrinking regular clothes

If you are confessed by what I mean by “regular clothes” I’m mostly talking about clothes made out of cotton, such as shirts, blouses, underwear, etc.

To unshrink these clothes just do the following:

  1. Get a large container of cold water filled halfway up ( a large bucket )
  2. Add 3-4 tablespoons of conditioner (add more depending on the amount of water)
  3. Now place the clothes into the bucket of water.
  4. Use your hands and stretch the clothes by gently pulling on each end. Do this for 1 minute.
  5. Now let the clothes soak in the bucket of water for 45 minutes. After this, the fibers should be loose enough to make the shrinkage go away.
  6. Rinse the clothes with fresh water and hang them to dry.

 

 

Unshrinking clothes made out of animal fabric

Clothes made out of animal fibers such as wool require a slightly different process to get them to unshrink.

 

To unshrink clothes made out of animal fibers, just do the following:

  1. Get a bucket and fill it up with lukewarm water
  2. Add 1/2 cup of vinegar, 1 cup of borax, and 4 tablespoons of conditioner. If you don’t have conditioner you can use baby shampoo instead.
  3. Place the clothes inside the bucket and gently stretch them for around 1-2 minutes.
  4. After stretching them let them soak for 30 minutes.
  5. After 30 minutes stretch them with your hands again.
  6. Now rinse and let them air dry

 

Conclusion

After following all these steps your clothes whether they are made out of cotton, wool, etc, should be able to fit you better now.

 

 

 

It’s surprising that most people don’t really clean their bathtubs that often. I used to be like that as well. I would often clean my shower but ignore the bathtub, but doing this isn’t a good thing because mold will start to grow on it and that is something you don’t want to happen.

 

What you need

When cleaning your bathtub you’ll need the following:

  • Baking soda
  • Vinegar
  • Dish soap
  • Bleach
  • Cleaning cloth
  • Cleaning sponge
  • mop

 

 

How to deep clean bathtub

There are many ways to clean a bathtub but I picked out four of the best ones. These 4 methods will make your bathtub look clean in no time.

 

 

Cleaning bathtub with bleach

This is a great way to not only remove dirt and grime from the bathtub but also to remove mold as well. Bleach is a very strong and harsh chemical and using it without protection can sometimes cause some issues. So if you are using any type of bleach make sure to wear a mask and gloves.

To clean your bathtub with bleach make sure you get a clean cloth and pour bleach onto it. Then use the cloth to scrub the bathtub. Doing this will get rid of the mold that was on it.

After cleaning your bathtub with bleach be sure to leave your shower curtain and bathroom door open so that the bleach smell can escape.

 

 

Vinegar and baking makes the best shower cleaner

Vinegar and baking soda are two of the best cleaners you can use. They will clean and remove almost any stain from a lot of things. They work even better when you combine them together. To mix both vinegar and baking soda together you have to get a bowl and sprinkle 1-2 cups of baking soda into it then add 1/2-1 cup of vinegar and mix the two together. Now get a sponge and dip it into the mixture and use it to scrub the bathtub. After scrubbing the bathtub let the baking soda and vinegar residue sit for around 20 minutes. After that just rinse the bathtub.

 

 

Dish soap

This is often my go-to when I need to clean something. Dish soap Is usually the fastest and safest cleaning method you can use when cleaning your bathtub. Now there are many types of dish soap but I prefer to use dawn since it’s the one that works best for me.

To clean your bathtub with dawn dish soap you need to get a damp sponge and squirt a few drops of dawn dish soap onto it. Now use the sponge to clean the bathtub. Make sure to scrub away any dirt and grime you see. After doing that just rinse the bathtub.

 

 

How to clean bathtub without bending /kneeling

Often times one of the main reasons people don’t really like to clean certain areas around their homes is because of bending or kneeling down. This is something that I and most other people don’t like to do because doing this a lot can cause some knee and back pains. However, this doesn’t mean you shouldn’t clean at all especially if your bathtub is dirty. I am going to show you how to clean your bathtub without kneeling.

 

Step 1 Fill the bathtub with warm water

Just fill the tub with a small amount of water (nothing past the ankles).

 

Step 2 Squirt dawn dish soap and bleach into it

Now squirt a few tables spoons of dawn dish soap and pour around 1/2 cup of bleach into the water. Mix the water around after doing this.

 

Step 3  Use a microfiber mop to clean the bathtub

Use any microfiber mop (or a regular mop) to clean the bathtub. If you don’t have a mop then you can use a spare broom. The broom will scrub away the dirt and grime better.

 

Step 4 release the water and rinse the bathtub

Release the water and use fresh water to rinse the bathtub.

 

 

This was the best way to clean your shower without having to bend and hurt your back.
