Just after the Shraadh ends, Navratris are just around the corned followed by the festive season, but is your home prepped up for all the upcoming events? For all the religious festivals, the center of attention is your prayer room. Before you embark on a decor spree, it's important that you take some time to do the basic clean up. When the deities, frames, puja utensils, and the temple are absolutely clean, decking up the place will take very little time!
Today, we are here to tell you about a few tips you can keep in mind while cleaning the puja room. So without further ado, let's get started!
The brassware kept at your puja room loses its original color with time. You have to clean them up every now and then so that they look as good as new. If the brass items in your home have become tarnished, you can use a paste of salt and vinegar for scrubbing. Leave the paste on the item for a few minutes, and wash it off with water. This is a simple hack, yet it's highly effective.
You can apply a similar hack for your copper items as well. Make a solution of vinegar and water, and use it for cleaning your copper utensils. You can also make use of lemon and salt for this purpose. The accumulated dirt, grime and stains can completely ruin the look of your puja essentials, so don't skip this step!
Silver deities and utensils are an essential part of every puja room. With time, the silver items develop a dark stain that can tarnish the beautiful look of the shining metal. You can clean them up using toothpaste or baking soda, to get back the old glaze once again. When all the silver deities, jewelry, plates, glasses, etc. are in perfect condition, the room lights up in an instant.
