Fixes to 9 Common Household Problems

We have all been there, wondering how to clean or remedy a home issue that seems to never be solved. We have the answers to some of the toughest, most annoying, home issues that you are plagued with today!

Fingerprints on stainless steel appliances

Who doesn’t love stainless steel appliances in their home? But the problem that most consumers have is the issue with streaking and fingerprints. The simplest fix is to put some olive oil on a soft cloth and apply a thin layer to the surface. Voila! No more fingerprints!kitchen

Make your granite look shiny

Fill up an 1/8th of a spray bottle with rubbing alcohol, a few drops of Dawn dish soap and your favorite essential oil. Fill the rest to the top with water. Mix it up and spray away on your granite, or any counter-top, to give it a clean shine.

Squeaking wood floors

Sweep talcum powder into the joints of the floorboards to eliminate that rubbing together you hear.kitchen

Have your whole house smelling fresh

Take a few drops of your favorite essential oil and drop it onto your furnace filter.

Noisy, wobbly ceiling fans

Inspect your fan and tighten any loose screws. Make sure that the blades are aligned and secured with the other blades and if you still have issues, opt for a balancing kit.

Water spots on your shower head

Mix 1/3 cup of baking soda and 1 cup of white vinegar in a plastic bag over your sink. Place the bag over your showerhead making sure it is submerged in the solution. Secure it to the showe rhead with a rubber band or twist tie and let it soak for 2-3 hours.

Streak free windows

The number one trick is to use newspapers instead of paper towels. Also using a 50/50 distilled vinegar and water mixture will work even better than nationally known brands.

Water marks on wood furniture

Use a dry cotton cloth and cover the water mark. Put a medium-hot iron on it for several seconds. If you still see the spot wipe the mark with cloth that is damp with denatured alcohol.

Rust stains in porcelain sinks

Grab your toothpaste and cover the stain. Let it sit for about 10-15 minutes. Rub some baking soda on a soft cloth and work out the stain.
