How to rage clean grout!
The short version goes like this:
Mix a scoop of the OxiClean with a quart to a gallon of hot water.
Pour the Oxi solution in a thin layer on the floor, being careful not to flood the place—using a bowl or a pitcher with a spout and pouring the solution on the floor in an S-shape can help you to control how much liquid you’re introducing to the floor.
Apply the solution in sections, working from the back of the room toward the door. As you apply the Oxi solution, use a scrub brush to spread it evenly on the floor and work it into the tile and grout. This should be a low-effort scrub though, because …
Once the floor is entirely covered in a thin layer of the Oxi solution, leave it be for 30-60 minutes—the solution is going to penetrate the grout and dirty tile and do most of the heavy lifting for you.
When time’s up, use a damp scrub brush to give the floors a good, well, scrub. Work out some of your rage! Then, use a sponge, microfiber cloths, or a mop and clean water to wipe the solution up. As the grout dries, you’ll start to see bright, clean grout emerge, and you will be happy.
#MomTip Rage Cleaning – when you get frustrated, take it out on your pans 🙂
Rage Cleaning requires a very specific kind of task. Cleaning makeup brushes, for example, won’t satisfy rage cleaning needs—but cleaning hairbrushes? Oh sure. There’s a sweet spot of elbow grease and tediousness that’s required to satisfy a Rage Cleaning itch; here are some examples of the form.
In my normal life, shining my pots and pans isn’t a priority. At all. But this isn’t normal life! Here’s the method for shining stainless steel pots and pans so that they look brand new.
Get the pan hot—this is important! It doesn’t need to be, and shouldn’t be, scorching hot but it should be hot enough that you pull your finger away quickly when you tap it.
Minding your hands so you don’t get burned, scrub the hot pan with baking soda and a damp scrub sponge (you do need a scrub sponge, but be sure not to use something too abrasive or it will scratch).
That’s all there is to it! Except it does require quite a bit of elbow grease, which will also have the added effect of letting you channel some rage. And then, after you’ve scrubbed and sweated and raged, your stainless steel pots and pans will be so incredibly shiny and that will also feel good.
