Reuse: MOLLY MAID Shares 3 Simple Ways

There is never a shortage of great ways to recycle common household items! And, who better than the expert house cleaners at MOLLY MAID to introduce ideas that work! Here are three ways to recycle:

Vacuum with Wrapping Paper Tubes

  • Do you still have some of those extra long cardboard wrapping paper tubes left over from Christmas?  Besides your children using the empty tubes as light sabres, the tubes can double as a makeshift vacuum extension tool to clean hard-to-reach ceiling corners and along the sides of your cooker or washer and dryer.

Work Wonders with a Toothbrush

  • Did you get a new toothbrush in your stocking this year? Why not use your old one as a grout and grime scrubber!  A toothbrush is a great tool to clean around taps, baths and shower edges, and even tiles and grout.  An electric toothbrush works even better… pairing the toothbrush with elbow grease can cleanup even the worst dirt.

Use a Special Pant Hanger in the Kitchen

  • Having a dinner party after the Christmas season? The hanger with clips attached that is used for hanging up trousers and skirts, can be used as a cookbook holder too. Simply open the cookbook to your desired recipe and use each clip at the ends of the hanger to keep the book open to that page. If the cookbook isn’t too heavy, hook the hanger onto the handle of one of your kitchen cabinets to maximise your counter space. It’s so easy – and useful.
