10 Cleaning Hacks To Make Life Easier
Everyone feels better in a clean home. It lifts the mood and makes you feel comfortable in your favorite space. However, getting the house that way is anything but enjoyable.
Often once you start the process, a simple tidy-up can turn into an allday affair. However, there are ways to make the house spick and span without loosing an entire day. Here are some super easy cleaning hacks to help you out.
1. For grout:
This might sound a little ridiculous, but we promise that if you line the grout between your tiles with bleaching gel and scrub with a toothbruth, your floors will be sparkling!
2. For faucets:
Fill a plastic bag with a CLR (calcium, lime, rust) remover and attach it to the facucets in your bathroom and kitchen. This is a mess-free way of getting rid of calcium build-up in those areas.
3. For rusty knives:
Sick of getting rust spots on your good steak knives? Simply soak them in a glass of lemon juice and those pesky spots will vanish.
4. For brushes:
A splash of Pine-Sol on your toilet brush will not only clean and disinfect the brush, it will also leave a fresh and clean scent in your bathroom.
5. For metal dishes:
Sick of scrubbing those old, grimy pots and pans? You can easily bring them back to life with a solution of hydrogen peroxide, baking soda and dish soap.
6. For glass dishes:
Glass bowls are the trickiest to get clean because they usually have tight corners that require some extra muscle, plus their translucent make-up leaves no room to hide. To get that glass sparkling again, try using soapy water and scrunched up tin foil to add a little elbow grease.
7. For stove tops:
Another tricky one to clean is the dreaded stove top. Home to boiled over liquids and crispy bits, use a mixture of baking soda and hydrogen peroxide to give those cooking causalities the heave-ho.
8. Ceiling fans:
Cleaning the ceiling fan usually results in thick black bust all over the furniture, but it doesn’t have to. Use a pillowcase to clean the blades and catch all the falling mess.
9. The dishwasher:
Say goodbye to strange smells and gross residue by running an empty cycle of lemonade-flavored Kool-Aid through your dishwasher. You’re dishes will smell good enough to eat!
10. The chopping board:
Wooden chopping boards are the best for business, but the most difficult to clean. Use a mixture of mineral oil, salt and fresh lemons to clean and disinfect the board.
