Using Cleaning Supplies in Different Ways Around the House Phoenix

Hopefully you use your cleaning supplies often around the house to keep everything safe for your family, but there may be a few uses you’re overlooking. Instead of buying extra products, why not try using these multi-tasking wonders for different jobs around the house? Here are a few tips so you can consolidate the space in your home.

Bug Killers 

That blue window washing fluid you have actually doubles as a pest killer when you’re in a bind. Just spray on the target, and then wipe away. This works particularly well for corners that are infested with a row of ants or spider webs. For the more pesky creatures like flies, you may have to do a little chasing.

Drain Cleaners

Instead of buying expensive products to unclog your drain, you can use denture tablets to get some air into the blockage so it can break it up and wash away. Break the tablets in two pieces, drop down the pipe and then use hot water to help loosen it up. The bubbles from the tablets will get to work once the water splashes on them, so you can start running your tap freely again.

Weed Killers

A tablespoon of liquid soap can actually work in the cracks of your sidewalk if you use it along with a cup of salt and a full gallon of white vinegar. This combination is lethal to those obnoxious weeds that keep springing up.
