How a Credit Card Can Help You Clean Your Cupboards

Stack of Credit Cards

No, I’m not talking about hiring a cleaning lady (though that is one option!). Instead, next time you get one of those dummy credit cards in the mail or you have an expired gift card, you can use it to clean up sticky spills like honey, molasses, or maple syrup that might have congealed on your pantry shelves. Simply scrape up the mess and toss the card along with it. Then use a soapy dish cloth or disinfecting wipe to remove any sticky residue.

What’s your favorite smart cleaning tip? We have tons in our gallery of cleaning new uses for old things.

    Good idea! I wonder what the clients of housecleaning ladies and men will think when they have credit cards in their cleaning carts? LOL

    I keep one at my sink with my scouring pad to easily scrape dried or fried on foods from plates and skillets.

    I’m sorry, are you suggesting we throw our credit cards into the landfill? I highly disapprove. Instead of tossing it (the convenient way), clean it (the responsible way) . . . then shred and recycle.
