We all love and use natural ingredients to help cleaning. Things like vinegar, lemon, baking soda, etc. have become a huge part of our cleaning routines. I love testing and using simple hacks that can simplify my cleaning routine and make it more interesting.
I have found amazing tricks that you can use by using chalk.
– You can polish marble and metal
Simply dampen a cloth and put some chalk dust on it. Start wiping metal or marble surfaces with it. This is going to make them shine.
When you are done, wipe the surface with a clean damp cloth.
– You can remove grease spots
If you noticed a grease spot on any piece of clothing then you can rub chalk on it. It will absorb the oil. Throw it in the washing machine and your clothes will be free of grease spots.
– You can prevent rust from tools
Your toolbox can use a little bit of chalk in order to eliminate the moisture which is going to prevent rust. Simply put a couple of pieces of chalk in your toolbox.
– You can keep ants away from your home
I love this trick. If you are dealing with ants then you can draw a line around home entry points with chalk.
If you want to repel ants from going in your garden then place powdered chalk around your plants.
