The number of sprays and cleaners that we buy from the markets to keep our windows clean is insane! It is insane not because you want to keep your window clean but because you want to use an expensive product to do so when you can use readily available dish soap to do it! All you have to do is take a spray bottle, fill it up with water, add a teaspoon of dish soap and 3-4 drops of lemon essential oil. Now spray this liquid on the windows and clean. You can also wipe off the sprayed liquid with newspapers to get clean windows! 

Cleaning Grease Stains Off Fabric

Sometimes we happen to drop oily and greasy food on our pretty tops and shirts. For stains like these, dish soaps work best! What you have to do is, take half a bucket of water, add a teaspoon of dish soap in it, put inside the bucket your ruined outfit and wash it well. The stain will soon be eliminated! 


Sometimes our microwaves and oven get loaded with dirty burnt food, oil and grease. To clean this, make a liquid with ¾ cup of hot water and ¼ cup of dishwashing liquid. Take a toothbrush and scrub the grease off with the help of this solution!

Soon, the flies will get attracted to the smell of the vinegar and before they know it, they will be killed by the dishwashing liquid.
