How to clean decanters?

Do not leave decanters to stand for a long time with alcohol in them. It can stain the glass and leave a ring mark. To remove stains, pour a little white vinegar into the decanter and add some dry rice. Swirl round – the rice acts as a gentle abrasive. Rinse out thoroughly, wash and rinse in plain water with a dash of vinegar in it. If the rice does not work, do the same thing with decanter beads, small metal balls that replicate the lead shot which used to be recommended to clean decanters. They can also be used on glass vases.

The problem with decanters is getting them dry. To do this safely, make the rinsing water a little hotter than usual so the heat will begin to evaporate the moisture. Then turn the decanter upside down in something like a plastic jug to finish off drying.

Cleaning And Polishing Wood Tips

Cleaning And Polishing Wood Tips

While dusting and cleaning wood with sprays and oils can help woods look rich, it doesn’t change the actual condition of the wood or provide protection to the wood’s finish. Wax polishing, on the other hand, can bring old, tired finishes to life and safeguard wood from future damage at the same time.

Wax polish is a semi-liquid made from a mixture of materials, including beeswax and carnuba. Waxes and wax-polishes can be applied on woods that have been finished with shellacs, varnishes or oils. Some waxes also contain ingredients like silicone, which makes wood appear glossy and slick to the eye.

Paint Colors For Your Home

Paint is one of the most affordable and easiest ways to change a room. But choosing the right paint colors for your home can seem like an overwhelming task. Paint, accessories, fabric, furniture, and flooring should all blend, so take a good look at the room you will be working on, preferably before you choose a paint color, and decide what will stay in the room, and what you may want to move out of the room.

The first thing you should do when choosing interior colors for your home, is look around at colors that make you feel good, happy, and relaxed. These colors are probably already in your home. A few examples are the colors you love to look at in your flower garden, the colors in your jewelry, or pottery, or they can be found in the colors of the clothes in your closet.

Scorched Pans Cleaning Tips

Scorched Pans Cleaning Tips

How often does it happen to get the pan burnt? Yes, it might be an accident, but cleaning the pan afterwards is a must, if you want to use it again. Whether you fell asleep while boiling water for tea, lit the wrong burner, or just really, really burned a sauce, a scorched pan not only looks bad and smells awful, but becomes virtually useless. Many people, thinking the pan is ruined, simply throw it away. This is not necessary – with some simple household ingredients, you can clean a scorched pot or pan in no time, and be cooking with it the next day. Do not attempt to scrub the pot or pan if it has scorched, as you will most likely only make matters worse and ruin your scouring pad. There are a few different ways, though, to clean a scorched pan. The most popular is to use baking soda. First, make sure the pan has cooled before you begin attempting to clean it. Cold water on a scorching hot pan can be even more damaging, if not dangerous. Once the pan is cool, fill it with water just past the line of where it was damaged.
