Moving Tips

Ovens – Bad odors left by oven cleaner will disappear if you put some orange peel on an oven tray and bake it for a few minutes.

Door Frames – Aluminum window and door frames will regain their shine if you rub them with a cloth dipped in ammonia.

Fly Screens – To clean dust from fly screens without removing them, put on a pair of rubber gloves and from the inside of the house, rub all over the screen with both hands. The dust will come off and fall to the outside windowsill for easy collection.

Fridges – Moisten a cloth with methylated spirits and wipe the rubber seals on your fridge to clean them and prolong their life. Once power is turned off, fridges and freezers shold be wiped out with warm water and pure soap. Wipe down with vanilla essence or leave an open packed of bicarbonate of soda in the fridge to absorb odours.

Moving Heavy Appliances – Before moving heavy applicances such as fridges or washing machines, slip on a pair of rubber gloves. They have a good grip and make the job easier.
