Families with children often find soup dripping on the carpet, which is very annoying, but never wipe it with a wet cloth. You can first use a clean dry cloth or hand towel to absorb the water, and then sprinkle some salt on the stained area and wait for the salt to dry. After the surface has penetrated and absorbed, use a vacuum cleaner to absorb the salt, and then use a brush to smooth the carpet.

6. Ice cube 

Children all like to eat chewing gum and bubble gum, but they may accidentally get it on the carpet. The chewing gum stuck on the carpet is difficult to remove, and the carpet fur cannot be cut off. This is where ice cubes can come in handy. , put the ice cube in a plastic bag and cover it on the chewing gum. After about 30 minutes, it will feel hard when you press it with your hand. Take the ice cube and brush it off with a brush.

When the refrigerator is opened and closed at home, it is easy to leave fingerprints when the hands are dirty. Toothpaste contains abrasives and has very strong detergency. You can use toothpaste to clean the dirt on the refrigerator shell. Use a soft cloth dipped in a little toothpaste to wipe it slowly. , if the stain is stubborn, you can squeeze some more toothpaste and wipe the refrigerator repeatedly with a cloth, and it will be smooth again.

8. With the plastic wrap

Plastic wrap cleaning is a method that many people now use, especially office workers. They put plastic wrap on the wall near the stove in the kitchen. Since the plastic wrap is easy to adhere to and is transparent, it is not easily noticeable to the naked eye. If the plastic wrap becomes stained with oil after a few weeks, you only need to gently tear it off and put another layer on it without any traces. It’s effortless and a great lazy cleaning method for busy office workers.

Cleaning and Maintenance For Different Materials Furniture Pieces

In addition, you should also learn to use flexible methods according to the different materials of furniture!

1. Cleaning methods for leather sofas and soft leather beds

For leather sofas and soft leather beds, a layer of stains will inevitably appear after being used for a long time, which not only affects the overall appearance, but is also difficult to remove. A good cleaning method is to use a dry rag dipped in a little egg white or pure milk and wipe it repeatedly on the stained area. This can restore the leather sofa or leather bed to its original brightness. Mainly because dermis contains fat, and egg whites and milk also contain the same substance. This is nothing more than using the principle of "like-sex attraction" to quickly dissolve stains on leather beds and leather sofas.
In addition to the methods introduced above, you can also use banana peels or orange peels to wipe the surface of the sofa, and then wipe it clean with a well-wrung rag. Mainly because banana peels and orange peels contain a lot of soft fibers, which can effectively remove stains through friction.

2. How to clean metal furniture?

If there is dirt on metal furniture, it is recommended to wipe it off with a soft cloth dipped in a little toothpaste. If the stain is really difficult to remove, you need to squeeze more toothpaste onto a soft cloth, and then wipe it several times to restore the original luster of the metal furniture surface. The principle is very simple, mainly because toothpaste contains abrasives, which has a very strong stain removal ability, which is of course not a problem for small stains.

3. Cleaning and maintenance for wooden furniture

We must not be too hasty when it comes to stains on wooden furniture, because once the stain penetrates into the wood, it is impossible to remove it. If the wooden furniture is accidentally stained, as long as it is not a stubborn stain, we only need to soak a rag in milk for a few minutes, and then wipe the wooden furniture with the rag. The stain removal effect is very good. After wiping, wipe it again with clean water.
If the wooden furniture is painted, the dust remaining on it will be very obvious. At this time, it is recommended to wrap the tea residue with wet gauze to wipe it, or scrub it with cold tea water. The paint surface will be smoother and brighter.

4. How to clean stains on plush and fabric sofas

As we all know, fabric sofas are not resistant to stains and can leave stubborn stains if you are not careful. At this time, you can use a soft-bristled brush dipped in a little alcohol to wipe it again, and then blow dry with a hair dryer. If there are stains such as juice, it is recommended to mix 1 teaspoon of baking soda + water and wipe it with a cloth. The stain can be easily removed. If you also have a fabric sofa or plush toys at home, you might as well give it a try.

5. How to clean carpets and sofas stained with chewing gum

For most people, accidentally getting chewing gum on the sofa is a huge nuisance. A good solution is to put ice cubes in a plastic bag and cover it with chewing gum. After about thirty minutes, the chewing gum will slowly harden. Remove the ice cubes and gently brush them with a brush. It fell off easily.

6. How to clean glass furniture

In daily life, glass furniture can be seen everywhere, but I believe many people are unfamiliar with the cleaning of glass furniture. For example: when eating and drinking soup, the glass surface is easy to be stained with oil. At this time, you can slice the white radish and wipe it on the table, which will produce an unexpected cleaning effect. Or use the core of a freshly eaten apple to wipe the oil stains, which will also work well. If used to remove kitchen grease, the effect is also very significant.
All furniture and other interior decors need careful and regular maintenance, in order to keep the furniture to be always clean and tidy, to be used for a longer time at home.
