Here are Ji-woon’s 8 quick and easy household tips that will come in handy.
Cleaning mold in the bathroom
Having a hard time cleaning the dirty molds? Use natural detergent like baking soda instead of bleach.
Just sprinkle baking soda and spray a bit of water-and-vinegar solution on it. Leave it to rest for about ten minutes. You will be able to scrub off these annoying molds easily!
Removing wine stains
You accidentally spill wine and see a shocking stain on your favourite outfit. You are frustrated over how to remove the stain without sending it to the dry cleaner. Here’s an idea: Use white wine to remove the stain. It sounds crazy but it works!
The wine stain can be removed with wine because its grape juice is acidic. To remove the wine stain, it is a better natural acidic solution instead of using the soap which has alkaline. You can use baking soda or salt as an alternative.
Storing food for long periods
Leaving the food in your freezer for too long will get spoiled easily. You wouldn’t want the freezer to have a smelly stench from the spoiled food. You might get a stomach ache if the food is not stored properly.
Fry or roast the food (such as meat and seafood) and leave it cool for a while before storing them. Keep them in the freezer for no longer than three to six months.
Boil wash dishcloths
Washing dishcloths every day is a must as we use it to clean the dishes frequently.
There are two ways to wash dishcloths:
- Leave them in a pot of boiling water for 15 minutes.
- You can use the microwave. Put them in a plastic bag followed by adding baking soda, dish soap, and water just enough to soak them.
The boiling water will kill any germs and bacteria that are left on the dishcloths.
DIY salt dehumidifier
Feeling stuffy because of the hot and humid weather? Keep yourself dry at home during the monsoon season with your own safe and economical salt dehumidifier.
To make one, all you need is a plastic bottle, 200g – 300g of salt, cloth, and a rubber band. Watch his step-by-step on how he makes a salt dehumidifier with these materials.
The salt dehumidifier will absorb the moisture in the air.
Heated brown rice pack
You had a long day and you need something to relive your muscle pain. The right amount of last-longing heat is a must for your body.
Put some brown rice in a pouch. The brown rice stores heat for a long time. Heat it in the microwave for 3 minutes before using. Place them on where you feel pain, loosen up your muscles, and relax.
Cleaning the inside of your microwave
Use natural solutions instead of cleaning products to clean the dirt inside the microwave.
Fill with leftover beer, water and vinegar, baking soda and vinegar, or lemon juice into the bowl. Place the bowl in the microwave and microwave it for three minutes. The steam will melt the dirt and become soggy. Turn off, remove the plug, and leave it for another three minutes. After that, wipe the dirt off with a clean cloth.
Cleaning the doorway
Imagine walking into the house’s doorway just to find dust underneath your feet. Uncomfortable, isn’t it? That’s why you need to clean the doorway where it collects more dirt and dust especially when the door is left open.
Sprinkle coarse salt all over the doorway and leave it there for 30 minutes. The coarse salt will turn black because it absorbs the fine dust. Vacuum the floor, wipe it with a wet mop, and you’re done.
