The most powerful tool in household cleaning is white vinegar. This simple liquid can be used for countless chores from tackling stains to removing smells. It is a mild acid that can be found in many different stores and it can be all you need to clean your abode.

One use of white vinegar is absorbing odours. It can absorb the odours in the air, allowing you to make any room smell nice once again. Simply leave a bowl of it in a room overnight and the next morning the smell should have gone. There may be a slight smell of vinegar but this will quickly leave. You can apply it to an odorous object and leave it a while and you will have a similar result.

For general cleaning, white vinegar can be used by mixing it with water and then pouring the solution into a spray bottle. This can then be applied to various things much as furniture, windows, clothes and work surfaces. Spray it on and then wipe and it should make things clean, as well as remove dirt, dust and minor stains. White vinegar can be utilised directly onto a tough stain and it should loosen it up so it can be wiped up without hassle. You can try placing some into your washing machine instead of a commercial fabric cleaner.

The other main household item perfect for cleaning is baking soda. Like vinegar, it has many uses and can be purchased easily and cheaply. Baking soda can be found in most household stores and supermarkets. So consider what is available and buy what you feel is right for you. It is a slight abrasive so it can be used to remove dirt and stains.

Baking soda can also be used to clear up plugholes and sinks. Pour half or three-quarters of a cup of baking soda down the sinkhole and then run hot water from the tap. Leave it a several hours or overnight, rinse more hot water through it and it should loosen up dirt, crumbs and food and push them along. Note that this will not work on a fully blocked drain so do not use baking soda for this problem.
