It turns out that detergents can be quite handy outside the laundry room. The major purpose of detergent is for washing clothes and it is very logical that we store detergent where we use it most, near the washing machine. But it doesn’t hurt to also keep an extra bottle of detergent in your sink cabinet. Meanwhile, there are six situations when detergent can come handy in the kitchen! Here are six reasons to keep detergent in your kitchen cupboard. They are as follows:
1. You can use detergent as hand soap: Are you not having hand soap at home anymore and still forgot to put it on your shopping list? Then detergent provides a solution. You can simply mix a detergent and water to serve as a good alternative to hand soap. Fill an empty bottle of hand soap with one part detergent and one part water, gently shake the mixture and you are done!
2. Make an extra-strong hand cleaner: Do you have stubborn dirt on your hands that comes off with great effort? Then you can think of black grease after working on your car or bicycle, or paint residue. Use a mixture of a teaspoon of detergent and a teaspoon of vegetable oil. All the dirt on your hands will disappear like snow in the sun.
3. You can use detergent to make an all–purpose cleaner: Simply mix two tablespoons of detergent per liter of water, and use the solution to fight grease and grime all over your kitchen. For example, add this mixture to a handy spray bottle and you can use your homemade all-purpose cleaner daily to clean all kinds of surfaces in your home. Also, the detergent has a pleasant scent, so your house will definitely smell fragrant after a major cleaning.
4. Use it to mop floors: You can pour half a cap of detergent into a bucket filled with warm water and use the solution to mop your kitchen floors. This act probably would not be the first thing you think of to mop your floors with, but trust us; your floor will shine like never before! Also, your house will smell delicious. Therefore, it is a win-win situation.
5. Use it to pretreat stains: Oops! Has busy cooking and red sauce splashed on your favorite white blouse? If you have a small bottle of detergent in the kitchen, you can pretreat the stain quickly and easily. Just dab some liquid detergent directly on the stain and ensure that the clothing doesn’t fully absorb the stain. Then throw the clothes in the laundry and it will be as if nothing ever happened!
6. You can use it for a blocked drain: The use of detergent can help unclog a blocked drain. It is actually worth trying before calling an expensive plumber. Just pour half a cup of detergent down the drain, let it stay there for a few minutes and then rinse with boiling water. Slightly less stubborn dirt will have dissolved, so the hot water should clear the drain.
