Olive oil: a cleaning trick you could be missing
Category: Cleaning Companies
You assume we're kidding, right? Wrong. Olive oil could get your home sparkling again in no time.
Cast iron pans
Do you struggle to get your cast iron pans clean? Mix olive oil with a teaspoon of coarse salt to make a paste and scrub this on your pans with a stiff brush. Then, simply rinse with hot water and you'll have your pans sparkling again.
Get paint off your hands
Okay, so we know that cleaning your hands isn't exactly a house cleaning chore, but having dried paint on your hands can be a real nuisance - not to mention embarrassing if you have plans for the evening.
Just rub olive oil into your skin and leave it for five minutes. Wash it off thoroughly with soap and the paint will wash off too - simple.
Repair scratches on leather
If you pour a very small amount of olive oil onto a cotton cloth and rub it onto scratched leather furniture in a light circular motion, you'll find that the scratches will fade significantly. Make sure not to use too much though, else you'll just be left with an oily mess.
Polish wood furniture
Mix two cups of olive oil with one cup of lemon juice or vinegar, then work it into the furniture with a soft cloth. This will really make it shine and look almost new again.
Shine stainless steel
Much like for wood, olive oil is brilliant for making your stainless steel items shine. Pour olive oil directly onto a cloth and buff away those fingerprints.
If this all seems a bit of a faff, then why not call a cleaning company to do it for you? You can be sure that your entire home will be left sparkling, and you can save the olive oil for cooking dinner.
