Clean your blender with soap.But it’s actually easy to remove that stuck-on gunk by pouring some warm water, a little baking soda, and a little dish soap in your blender and pulsing it for a few seconds. Afterward, just give it a good rinse or pop it in the dishwasher to get it looking like brand new once again.

Cleaning a litter box

When cleaning a litter box you should use hot water and a hand dishwash liquid to clean the surfaces. Avoid using chlorine bleach for cleaning. Fumes are created through a chemical reaction between the bleach and residue ammonia remaining in a litter box after it has been emptied.

For help with cleaning the “human litter box” or toilet give your local cleaning ladies a call. They will help get all the hard to reach dirt, dried up pee or whatever is around the outside of your toilet clean.

Quick Tip to cleaning your toilet bowl:

First, flush.

Next, grab some bleach. (The bleach will help break up mold or any stains that may be in your toilet) Pour a cup into the bowl, and brush around the sides and under the rim. Let sit for five minutes, then flush again. Your toilet bowl should be sparkling clean.

Hand Dish Washing Liquids

Hand dish washing liquids are formulated to facilitate removal of greasy soil from dishes. They also suspend the soil in the wash water to facilitate rinsing. Although a hand dish washing liquid does not have to produce any meaningful amount of suds to be effective at removing soil, suds stability has become accepted as an indication of product’s remaining cleaning power.

Consumers union surveyed staff members regarding their dish washing habits. The respondents reported using one or more of the following methods. In fact, many of the respondents reported using all three methods.

Most test methods for hand dish washing liquids are based entirely on the products’ ability to sustain a head of foam in hard water while challenged by soiled plates. The number of plates that hand dish washing liquids will wash before the suds are depleted varies from product to product and is affected by water hardness. Several well known national brands washed more that 12 plates in both hard and soft water. Most of the brands will not to much worse.

**Tip of the day: DO NOT, I repeat DO NOT use a hand dish washing liquid in an automatic dish washer– it will OVERSUDS.
