If your weekly clumsiness hit you again and you spilled a drink on your sofa and now you have a big fat stain on your sofa that attracts all sorts of bad attention. If you are yet to find out how to deal with it, then I’m glad to tell you that I’ve got your back on this one. Take a tablespoon’s worth of soap and mix it with a couple of tablespoons of warm water.
Then, take a dry clean cloth and dampen it in the mixture before using it to press the area of the stain repeatedly until it’s gone. After that, take another dry cloth and sink it in cold water this time and apply it on the area to rinse it. The last step is to take apply pressure on the area with a paper towel and finish off the job in complete perfection.
It’s that time of the week and you want to do some house cleaning, starting with those tiles. Whether it’s ceramic, linoleum, or vinyl; dish soap can do wonders on them. All you have to do is empty a couple of tablespoons of our magic liquid into a bucket of warm water and using that to mop the floor. The results will most definitely be to your liking. One thing you don’t want to do is to use this method on wood tiling. The results will be sloppy and just overall ugly.
Similar to floor tiling, soap can be very potent when it comes to various types of surfaces as well. With examples like windowsills and counters, only to name a few, are among the surfaces you can use dish soap to clean them with instead of buying expensive dedicated products.
The way go about this is simple enough: you take a spray bottle and put it in a mixture of hot water and soap depending on the level of concentration you’d like the mixture to have.
Then, all you need to do is to spray the resulting liquid on whatever surface you want to clean and wipe the with a cloth. This goes for all sorts of corners in your kitchen including greasy tiles and walls.
