In this video, cleaning expert, Melissa Maker, shows how to wash produce in a quick and effective way using an eco-friendly, homemade produce wash. Produce has pesticides and other unfriendly grime, so this is how to wash produce properly and safely.

Thomas asked: Is there a cheaper way to clean my produce properly?

Answer:

What you need-
1) Fruits and vegetables
2) 2 tablespoons of baking soda
3) 2 tablespoons of lemon juice
4) 1 cup of water
5) spray bottle
6) Strainer
7) funnel (optional)

Shelf life: 2 weeks

In the spray bottle, pour the lemon juice, baking soda and water. Shake it up and set the spray bottle to mist. Put the fruits and vegetables into the strainer and douse using the spray bottle over a sink. Let the produce sit for a few minutes, then rinse with cold water. Allow the produce to air dry in the strainer and enjoy!

Did you know? Lemon juice acts as a natural disinfectant, while baking soda provides the fine grit needed to clean everything off the surface of your produce.

FYI: Thick-skinned fruit like an orange or banana don’t need to be washed since you don’t eat the skin. Thin skinned fruits and vegetables like an apple, grape or tomato should be washed before eating.

How to Descale a Kettle (Easy Household Cleaning Ideas That Save Time & Money) Clean My Space

Join the CleanMySpace.com Community!

In this video, cleaning expert, Melissa Maker, answers Tim’s question on how to descale a kettle. Please note, the daytime light in my kitchen was going nuts, so if you see strange lighting, that’s why!

Tim asked: How can I descale my kettle?

Answer:

What you need-
1) Kettle with lime scale
2) 1 cup of vinegar
3) 1 tablespoon of baking soda (optional)
4) Cotton cloth (optional)

Put a cup of vinegar into the kettle and set the kettle to boil. The vinegar helps to heat the element in order to break down the lime scale, while the steam helps clean any leftover residue. Once it turns off, pour the vinegar into your sink and rinse the kettle a few times.

To clean any remaining lime scale:
Take a wet cloth and dip it into a tablespoon of baking soda. Use the cloth to clean any remaining lime scale build up then rinse thoroughly with water. Boil through again if needed.

FYI: Lime scale is not harmful for you to ingest. It’s mainly formed out of calcium and salt, however, it does look gross! It also takes more energy to boil water when you have lime scale build up, since the element needs to work harder to heat and it can cause you to burn your element. Ideally, you want to descale your kettle at least once every 6 months or as needed.

**BONUS TIP**
For cleaning your drain:
Pour a cup of baking soda down the drain and pour the boiling vinegar into the sink. It’ll help to clean and deodorize your drain. Consider that 2 tips for the price of 1!

How to Get Rid of Fruit Flies (Easy Household Cleaning Ideas) Clean My Space

Join the CleanMySpace.com Community!

In this video, cleaning expert, Melissa Maker, shows us how to set up a fruit fly trap and get rid of fruit flies for good!

It is important to catch the problem fast because fruit flies breed quickly and multiply exponentially fast. While I don’t like killing things, in this video we do need to kill fruit flies to make sure they don’t come back. Thanks for watching!

Stephanie asked: How do I get rid of pesky fruit flies?

Answer:

What you need-
1) Pesky fruit flies
2) Container (like a glass)
3) Balsamic vinegar
4) 2 sheets of plastic wrap
5) Paring knife

Fill a container 1/8 of the way full with balsamic vinegar. Cover the container with taut plastic wrap. Take your paring knife and pierce 4 small holes on the top of the plastic wrap. Leave it out overnight. Take off the old plastic wrap the next day since they may have laid eggs on it. Replace it with a new sheet of plastic wrap and pierce 4 small holes again (Repeat for 2-3 days). If you notice a few are flying out, put a second layer of plastic wrap or make sure your holes aren’t too big. Make sure you put your fly catcher in an area you think it’ll be most effective.

How-to Clean Window Sills (Easy Household Cleaning Ideas That Save Time & Money) Clean My Space


Maker’s Cleaning Cloths:
Subscribe for a Cleaner Life!

Join the CleanMySpace.com Community!

In this video, cleaning expert, Melissa Maker, shows us how to clean window sills and window tracks – that build up of grime is so unattractive, but easily handled with a quick cleaning. Cleaning window sills used to be a wrist-twisting job, but now we can clean them quickly and easily!

Sandi asked: What’s the best way to clean my window sill tracks?

Answer:

What you need-
1) Dirty window sill
2) Cleaning toothbrush
3) Spray bottle filled with water
4) Microfibre cloth
5) Vacuum (optional)
6) Drop of dish soap or 1 tablespoon baking soda (optional)

Optional: Start by vacuuming (using the nozzle attachment/crevice tool) to remove large debris- it takes a few seconds and makes all the difference.

Optional: Put a drop of dish soap or 1 tablespoon of baking soda to the spray bottle for extra cleaning power.

Spray the window sill with water and let it sit for a few minutes. Using a cleaning toothbrush, brush the window sill track to lift off any caked on debris. Once you’ve thoroughly brushed the area, take a microfibre cloth and wipe the remaining residue. If you wrap the cloth around your finger, you can get into corners and scratch off any excess dirt easily.

** BONUS TIP**

For mold on your window sill:
Take a few drops of tea tree oil and add it to your spray bottle. Spray the window sill area and let it sit for 10-15 minutes. Use the cleaning toothbrush to breakdown the mold and wipe clean with a cloth. Re-treat the area using the tea tree solution to help inhibit mold growth. Please note: mold is the result of a moisture issue and should be dealt with as early as possible to prevent spreading.

FYI: If you live in colder climates and open your windows during only a few months, you can do this twice a year. If you live somewhere that allows windows to be open for most of the year, step up the frequency and do it quarterly.
