If you tuned in to part one of this blogging installment, you likely know that we talked about some interesting and alternative cleaning methods such as using dryer sheets to buff out watermarks, grapefruits to clean the shower and tub, as well as using vinegar and an iron to rid your carpet of stains. Luckily, that isn’t all! In today’s blog post, your provider of luxury apartments in West Chester, Ohio, The Lakes At West Chester, will be continuing our conversation on our favorite innovative tips and tricks for cleaning your West Chester rental.

Clean Your Microwave With Soapy Water

While you might be thinking “No kidding — how else would you clean a microwave?”, we aren’t talking about simply scrubbing the microwave with soapy water. Instead, we are suggesting that you actually put the bowl of soapy water in the microwave and run it quickly. In doing so, you can expect for the grime and gunk covering the walls of your microwave ceiling to loosen up, becoming much easier to wipe off. This trick is so beneficial because if there is one thing that can make a luxury apartment in West Chester, Ohio, look less “luxurious” it is to have a dirty microwave.

Clean Fans With An Old Pillowcase

Often times you find yourself laying in bed, looking at the ceiling, only to realize that your ceiling fan is absolutely filthy. Sometimes it can be off-putting to clean the ceiling fan because more often than not, dust goes everywhere. Luckily, you no longer need to take a microfiber cloth and spread dust throughout your West Chester rental. Instead, simply take an old pillowcase (one that you are willing to throw out) and place the opening over each individual blade, simply shutting the opening and pulling the pillowcase off of the blade. In doing so, you will find that you collect all of the dust from the blade while also containing the dust in the back — a much better alternative to spreading it around your luxury apartment in West Chester, Ohio.

Clean Vents With A Wet Rag And A Butter Knife

To keep our list of odd cleaning uses for household items going, we would like to point out the efficiency of using a butter knife and a wet cloth to clean your West Chester apartment air vents. Over time, some dust and grime might build up on the grate of your air vent. By using a wet rag and a butter knife, you can easily slide the rag between the vents, quickly and efficiently removing the dust. Why is this important? Well, to put it simply, over time the dust will accrue on your vents, meaning that when the vents are turned on, they are more likely to decrease the air quality in your West Chester apartment.
