Mrs. Fixit: Sponge Mops

You can pick up these inexpensive sponge mops at a discount store for a couple of bucks, but the number of ways that you can use them around the house, priceless.

Use a sponge mop dipped in white vinegar to easily clean shower doors and walls. You'll have the reach you need without needing to climb into the tub and teeter on slippery surfaces.

The same is true for winodws. A sponge mop dipped in a mixture of warm water, a little dishsoap and white vinegar will get those windows clean in no time.

If you need to remove some wallpaper, a sponge mop will help you quickly and easily saturate the wall with hot water and soften the old glue.

Wrap some cheesecloth around the head of a sponge mop and you have a handy tool for dusting out of reach woodwork, or to catch cobwebs in high corners.

And you thought you could only use them on the floors! Great uses for inexpensive sponge mops.

I'm Mrs. Fixit and it's just that simple.
