Put Your Tub to Work

The first day of summer has arrived and I did not finish my spring cleaning. I fully intended to wash the windows but that didn’t get done.

There are some items that are especially difficult to clean…like my step stool with a grooved top.

Not only is there dirt in the grooves, there is paint splattered on it. I dumped a half a cup of dishwasher detergent in the tub, filled it with hot water and let it soak overnight.

Since it kept floating to the top I used the lid to my hamper to stabilize it. They both came out sparkling.

I have tried to scrub the dirt in the crevices of both these items several times and one overnight soak removed all traces of dirt.

It even removed the paint spatters.
