Clean up Mad Mom reveals how to remove stains from Absolutely EVERYTHING
A CLEANING-MAD mom shared her amazing tips on how to deal with the most annoying laundry and housekeeping stains.
The queen of cleaning knows exactly how to remove oil stains and even mildew from your clothes – and she also knows the key to cleaning hardwood floors.
Australia-based cleaning influencer Carolina McCauley shares her top tips with nearly half a million followers on Instagram.
Carolina followers say she’s a “genius” for her innovative cleaning tips.
Mom-of-two shared her awesome cleaning method to get tough oil stains clothes, and viewers think she’s onto something.
In her viral video, she purposely poured oil on a white t-shirt and then explained how to remove the stain.
First, remove the excess oil from the stain with a piece of paper towel.
Then cover the stain with baking soda and let sit for an hour.
After letting the stain sit for an hour, prepare a bowl of lukewarm water and a capful of laundry detergent.
Use a toothbrush to rub the mixture over the stain.
Finally, throw the garment in your washing machine on a normal cycle, and it will come out like new.
Mold but gold
When you see mold on clothes, it’s easy to think of the garment as clothing – but Carolina has a smart hack to get rid of this problem.
In one of her videos, Carolina shows off a t-shirt with black mold along the neckline.
She begins the mold release process by sautÃ©ing the t-shirt in a bowl with half a cup of Borax and a quarter cup of hydrogen peroxide.
Then she adds hot water and lets the t-shirt soak in the mixture for a few hours.
Then you can just run the garment in the washing machine, but it is essential to use vinegar in place of fabric softener.
When the t-shirt comes out of the machine, it is mold free and like new.
Reviewers were grateful for Carolina’s awesome hack.
One viewer was enthusiastic: â€œThe advice I was waiting for! Thank you for sharing!”
“Too bad I didn’t see this sooner!” I threw away my boyfriend’s shirt which had mold! It was our first encounter with moldy clothes, â€wrote another.
Carolina also has an amazing hack for clean hardwood floors – and she even has her own floor cleaner recipe.
She simply pours two cups of hot water, a quarter of a cup of white vinegar and an eighth of a teaspoon of dish soap into a container.
She also recommends adding between five and ten drops of essential oil, but this step is completely optional.
Then you simply use this solution with a microfiber mop, wipe in the direction of the grain to avoid streaks, and your floors will sparkle.
She points out that a small part of the solution goes a long way and that you shouldn’t soak your floors in liquid.
Reviewers were very impressed with Carolina’s DIY remedy for her hardwood floors.
“I will definitely try this,” wrote one viewer.
Another said, â€œI really appreciate all of your home hacks and have implemented them! Thank you!”
