A Spring Cleaning Trick To Help Bring Back Shine

The experts at MOLLY MAID suggest a quick and easy ‘double duty’ cleaning trick that you can use for one of your most dreaded cleaning chores, the toilet, as well as your flower vases. All you need is a package of effervescent antacid tablets, such as Alka-Seltzer.

Shimmering Flower Vase

Although they look lovely in any room, fresh flowers can leave your vases looking grimy. It’s important to keep your vases looking as fresh as your blooming flowers! The Alka-Seltzer will lift leftover bouquet residue from the bottom of a vase. Here’s how:

  1. Fill the vase with warm water
  2. Add 1-2 tablets and let sit for a few minutes
  3. Swish the water and rinse.

Sparkling Toilet

Cleaning the toilet is easy with Alka-Seltzer too:

  1. Pop 1-2 tablets into the toilet bowl and let the fizz attack stubborn stains for 10-15 minutes
  2. Give a swish around with the toilet brush
  3. Then flush – it’s as simple as that!
