20 Best Household Tips Ever

Got laundry, kitchen or bathroom woes? Stains that won’t budge or problem pests? Kidspot’s list of best-ever everyday household tips will not only keep your home in tip-top shape, but it may just save your sanity too!

Part 1: Kitchen tips


Sparkling appliances

Restore the shimmer to your brushed stainless steel appliances by rubbing on some baby oil with a square of folded paper towel. Smudges, food and fingerprints will disappear in an instant. Note: this method works for brushed stainless steel only.


Fresh chopping boards

Get rid of that ‘old food’ smell from your chopping boards by rubbing half a cut lemon over the surface. Allow the chopping board to stand for 20-30 minutes and then rinse under cool running water for a citrus-fresh perfume.


Perfect fruit and veg

Store your fruit by lining your fridge drawers with bubble wrap; this will stop your fresh produce from bruising and at the end of the week there will be no wasted food. For the veggie drawer, crumbled newspapers will keep veggies crisp.


Smelly drains fix

A stinky drain can make your whole kitchen smell like a garbage dump! To neutralise the odour, first make a watery baking soda paste to put down the drain – the baking soda will break down any food scraps that are hanging onto your pipes.  Leave it there for about an hour and then mix a jug of hot water with 3-4 teaspoons of vanilla essence. Throw that down the sink and you’ll have a sweet-smelling kitchen just like that!


Fresh fridge

Use vinegar to wipe the inside of the refrigerator to help prevent mildew (acid kills mildew fungus). To keep your fridge smelling fresh, keep a box of baking soda, a can filled with charcoal or dried coffee grounds or a cotton ball soaked in vanilla extract inside of it.
