"Shower Curtain Cleaning" GROSS; Clean It Up Easy And Learn Tips To Prevent Mildew

There isn't much grosser than the shower curtain that has been hanging in your shower for too long. Most people think of shower curtains as disposable, but they don't have to be. Cleaning a shower curtain is a simple procedure. Just put it in the washing machine on warm with some laundry soap and a little bit of bleach. (Do not put it in the dryer, it will melt.) If you want to dry it with a towel, you can, but it is not neccesary. You will be amazed at the results. An almost brand new shower curtain. It will be a little wrinkled when you pull it out of the washing machine, but they will go away shortly after you hang it.

You can help prevent shower curtain mildew by spraying a mixture of vinegar and water on the shower curtain once you have hung it back up. It is best to spray on the inside. Especially on the bottom and on the bottom of the outside also, as it seems to grow their too. If your children take baths, make sure to pull the shower curtain out of the tub to help prevent more mold and mildew. If you think about the ring you get in your tub from baths, you don't want that same ring on your shower curtain.

Stove Cleaning Secrets "Battle The Black Stove Top Stuff"

Having troubles getting that mysterious black stuff off your gas range? I have only had my gas stove for a short time. It was something I always wanted, but I had no idea it would be such high maintenance. I decided it's because of the open flame. I try to cook clean and always wipe up spills that I notice, but somehow those little black specks of whatever it is always seem to appear. I have tried almost everything to get rid of it or at least I thought I had. To my surprise I found something that works like magic. Ammonia!

Ammonia is very stinky, so you will want to open a window or maybe even do this outside. Take a gallon size zip lock bag, any brand will work. Place the grates in the bag. Pour some ammonia into a spray bottle and then spray the grates down really good. Don't worry, you will not be able to smell the ammonia after the bag is sealed. Let it sit for 8 hours or overnight is fine too. When the time is up, the black stuff will just wipe off.

As far as the top of the stove goes, the only way to get that off is by scraping it with a razor blade. Do be very careful, because it can scratch your paint. Sad to say that the ammonia does not work on the top of the stove. I think it is because there just is not a bag big enough to cover the stove. The stove top is also not the same type of paint. Make sure you do not use this method on the cast iron grates. I don't know what that would do.

From what I understand, the best way to clean those is by putting them in your oven on the cleaning mode. If you do not have the self-cleaning oven, then simply heat your oven for a half hour with the grates in there and then the black stuff should come right off.

The best defense to this black stuff is to wife your stove down every time you cook. If you cook on a burner again, before cleaning it, you will bake on any little splatters. Even if you do not see anything, you must always wipe it down before using it again. This will eliminate most of this black stuff.

I don't even pretend to be the cleanest person, but this is something I have struggled with. I have learned that gas ranges with a white top are very high maintenance. Always wipe your stove down after every meal and you will save yourself time and a lot of headaches.
