Cleaning Hacks With Tea And Alcohol

Everyone has in their kitchen some tea leaves or tea bags. What would you say if beside using them for making tea you could also use them for cleaning purposes? The same applies for rubbing alcohol or vodka. There are some surprising cleaning uses for them.


  • Cleaning carpets – use green tea bags to clean musty, dirty carpets. Sprinkle on the carpet used, dry green tea leaves and leave them on for at least 10 minutes to work their magic and then vacuum everything up.
  • Give wood floors their shine – use black tea to clean your floor. Put a pot on to boil, add a few black tea bags in and leave it to cool down a little. Use a cloth to wipe the floor by hand. Make sure you don’t leave too much water on. That’s not good for hardwood floors.
