1: DIY All-Purpose Cleaner

Brisbane’s humid climate is the perfect breeding ground for mould and mildew. Concoct your own all-purpose cleaner by blending equal parts water and white vinegar in a spray bottle. Enhance the mixture with a few drops of your preferred essential oil for a delightful scent.

2: Microwave Deep Clean

Is your microwave plagued by stubborn, baked-on food residue?

Try this simple yet effective hack: place a microwave-safe bowl filled with water and several lemon slices inside your microwave. Heat the bowl on high for three minutes, then allow it to stand for an additional five minutes. The steam will effortlessly loosen the grime, making it a breeze to wipe away with a damp cloth. Your microwave will gleam like new in minutes!

3: Streak-Free Glass Cleaner

Achieving streak-free windows and mirrors can be challenging.

Combine equal parts water and rubbing alcohol in a spray bottle, then incorporate a tablespoon of cornstarch. Give it a thorough shake before applying it to glass surfaces. Wipe with a microfibre cloth to see your crystal-clear windows and mirrors without any hassle.

4: Carpet Stain Remover

Spills and stains are an inevitable part of life. Mix equal parts hydrogen peroxide and dish soap in a spray bottle, then sprinkle a generous amount of baking soda over the stained area. Apply the solution and let it sit for a few minutes before blotting with a clean cloth.
