June 21, 2021

Thank you to all of you who participated in the competition and sent in environmentally friendly cleaning tips! Three winners have now been chosen, congratulations! What tip are you going to try?

The winning tips are presented below in no particular order. The winners have submitted environmentally friendly cleaning proposals that make everyday life easier.

The winning proposals have simple and clear instructions or have referred to the source.

Tip 1

"My sustainable cleaning tip is using left over lime or lemon rinds to scrub off water marks in the kitchen sink. The citric acid helps to get rid of grime and water marks built up in the sink. Rinse with warm water afterwards."

Tip 3

"Most corridors have problems with burnt grease / dirt on oven plates. Here is my durable cleaning tip that makes the oven plates look like new. You need bicarbonate, vinegar and hot water (durable and cheap). Here's how it’s done:

1. NOTE: recommends using gloves. Mix vinegar with tap water (about 3 dl vinegar with 3 dl water) in a spray bottle.

2. Spray the oven plate and let the mixture work for 15 minutes. The longer the time, the better results can be achieved.

3. Powder bicarbonate on the oven plate and scrub the plate with a stiff dish-brush until the dirt begins to dissolve.

4. Pour on hot water and let it stand for a few more minutes (approx. 10 minutes). Scrub a little more with detergent and rinse with warm water. Done!"
