8 Genius Cleaning Tricks You Didn’t Know Existed
Cleaning can be one of two things. It can either be really fun or really boring. But no matter what, it can be pretty easy, if you’re doing it right. So today we’re showing you some of our favorite tricks to help you clean your house smarter, not harder.
Without further or do, here are 8 genius cleaning tricks you didn’t even know existed:
1. Clean the ceiling fan with a pillowcase
Struggling to clean the layers of dust piling up on your ceiling fan? Try dusting it with an old pillowcase to prevent dust from flying around the room. Simply spray the inside of the pillowcase with some dusting spray then place the pillowcase over of the arms on the ceiling fan and wipe the dust into the bottom of the pillowcase. This allows you to contain the dust in the pillowcase and prevent it from reaching another surface. Genius right?
2. Use a broom to clean the bathtub
3. Dust the lampshades with a lint roller
4. Create a DIY cleaner using things in your pantry
Did you know that you can actually clean your house using food that you already have in your kitchen? Using vinegar, water, and lemon slices you can create your own surface cleaner. Just take an empty spray bottle and fill it with one part vinegar, one part water then add a couple lemon slices (or drops of lemon essential oil) and you can clean virtually anything in your home.
5. Microwave lemon slices to clean it
Keep those lemon slices out because you can use them for more than creating your own surface cleaner. You can actually use them to clean the inside of your microwave and save yourself some time. Place a few slices of lemon in a microwave-safe bowl filled with water and a teaspoon of white vinegar and microwave on high for 3 to five minutes before wiping clean.
6. Kill odor with vodka
7. Whiten your grout using toilet cleaner
Using Clorox’s toilet bowl cleaner you can actually clean more than just the toilet. You can actually use it to whiten the grout on the floors or even inside the shower. Using the twist-top nozzle just run the solution along the lines of the grout and let it sit for about an hour before wiping away with an old rag.
8. Delegate your house cleaning
