The good news is that there are a cleaning tip and simple life hack that doesn't cost a lot of money, and will get your towels smelling clean again. One of the reasons for towels getting musty, could be a bathroom that doesn't get a lot of circulation, so you shower, then hang your towel, but it never really dries out, thus the musty smelling towels. This easy cleaning tips and DIY idea uses simple ingredients that you most likely already have in your pantry. For the full cleaning tips, you will want to take a look at the Rock A Bye Parents site.

One of the ingredients for this cleaning tip and simple life hack is baking soda. You don't need a cabinet full of expensive, toxic cleaners to deep-clean your kitchen. In fact, some people might argue that you only need a handful of natural cleaners to get the job done, and one of those ingredients should definitely be baking soda. Yes, simple, inexpensive baking soda. This odorless white powder does more than just leaven your cookie recipe. Baking soda is truly a magical natural cleaner, with a fine non-abrasive grit that cleans without scratching.

One of the ways to use baking soda as a natural cleaner and cleaning tip is to clean tarnished silverware with it. How It Works. This simple cleaning tip isn't too far from an elementary-school science project. To start, clear some space on your kitchen table or counter for a glass baking dish that is lined with some aluminum foil with the shiny-side up or an aluminum baking dish. Combine baking soda and some salt. Then add some white vinegar and boiling water. The simple and fun-to-watch chemical reaction should begin to remove the tarnish from the silver immediately. Heavily tarnished silver pieces may need to soak a little longer. Silver utensils should come out quite fine with a bit of buffing with a dry cloth.

Another way to use baking soda as a natural cleaner and cleaning tip is as an all-natural oven scrub. A dirty oven can be a challenge to get clean. You want to avoid those corrosive oven cleaning chemicals and toxic odors by using a baking soda and salt paste that is made with water or vinegar. Spread the cleaning paste over the bottom, walls and oven door using a cleaning brush. Let the natural mixture sit for about 24 hours, keeping the natural cleaner moist with a spritz of water or white vinegar periodically. The natural paste will help soften the burnt-on food and make scrubbing your oven a whole lot easier. Wipe the natural paste away with a sponge or clean cloth, then turn on the oven on to around 100 degrees F. Keep the oven on for an hour to help soften any lingering residue. Turn the oven off, then once the oven is cool to the touch, spritz any of the stubborn areas with some vinegar and wipe down.
