Who doesn’t love a handy hint. I am always looking for new and easier ways to clean around the house. Anything that can free up my time to spend it with my family or doing other things, gets my tick of approval. So when I tried out these suggestions I was really impressed. Thermos flasks and vases To clean flasks and vases, place a tablespoon or two of baking soda into the flask, then a good glug of household vinegar. It will start to bubble, but wait for the bubbling to subside before placing the lid on the flask, otherwise you may have an explosion on your hands. Shake the container a few times.
