25 Cleaning Tricks for the Neat Freak

13.  Clean Washing Machine — Fill the washing machine and add 2 cups of white vinegar.  Allow it to stand for 1 hour, then start up the washing machine and allow it to do a complete cycle.  Once the machine drains, it should be pretty clean. Next you once again fill up the washing machine and this time add 2 cups of bleach.  Leave it to soak for 1 hour.  Restart the washing machine and allow it to complete a full cycle. 

14.  Purifying Light Sanitizing Cutting Board System– Kills 99.9% of all bacteria, viruses, and germs.


15.  Cleaning Your Mattress — Baking soda and any essential oil you choose will do the job.  And vacuuming your mattress.  The baking soda draws up any moisture as well as ground in dirt.  It also deodorizes and you will find your mattress smelling fresh and clean.  The essential oil will leave behind a pleasant scent.
