But we can’t escape it forever, we have to be adults now, and being an adult means cleaning your window tracks, whitening your pillowcases and keeping your baseboards clean and dust-free.Here are 30 cleaning hacks that will make your life so much easier (and cleaner!).
2. Clean your paintings with a bagel. (Seriously.)
Yep, you read right, that says bagel! Using a bagel or a piece of bread to dust your paintings is the best idea ever, it protects the painting and gets it squeaky clean.
8. Use an orphan sock to clean your blinds.
We all have a pile of orphaned socks next to our dyer, patiently waiting for their mate. Where do they go? Some kind of dryer wormhole? Fulfill their lives by making them into blinds cleaners.
9. Clean your bathroom like a pro.
Cleaning your bathroom can be daunting, which is why real hotel staff have finally released their secrets! Keep your bathroom at 10 degrees warmer than normal to double the effectiveness of alkaline cleansers.
11. Clean your shower head with a baggie and vinegar.
Hard water can get built up in your shower head, lessening your water pressure. Take a baggie and some vinegar and give it a good soak to bring it back to life again.
12. Get your yellowing pillows white again.
Stop hiding your pillows and get them white again! Throw them in your dishwasher with a concoction of HOT water, laundry detergent, dishwasher detergent, bleach and borax.
18. Clean and sanitize your garbage disposal with lemons.
Another lemony tip is grinding up lemons and lemon peels in your garbage disposal to keep it fresh and clean. You can also use a toothbrush to remove gunk from around the opening.
22. Keep your faucets water-spot free with wax paper.
The wax in your wax paper will repel water from your faucets and taps. I love doing this because it lessens the amount of time I need to spend cleaning.
23. Vegetable oil and baking soda get rid of kitchen cabinet gunk.
You know the gunk I mean. Under the handles where all our grimy hands touch them over and over. EW! Use a toothbrush and this concoction to get rid of it.
25. Clean your kids’ toys in the dishwasher with vinegar.
Yet another thing I can just throw into the dishwasher and forget about! Use vinegar instead of dishwasher detergent for a more natural approach.
30. Clean your electric grill by grilling a wet paper towel.
You can clean the grooves of your electric grill by literally grilling a wet paper towel! The steam loosens the stuck on food and will wipe off easily.
You work too hard for your money to throw it all away on full price when you don't have to!
