Having trouble reaching certain hard to reach areas of your home? Today we’ve got some tricks to help you clean some of those areas easily and efficiently. 

Cleaning hard to reach places can be a pain. Sure sometimes it’s easier to avoid cleaning those small crevices that you can’t easily reach. But maybe if you knew a simpler way to clean them you wouldn’t neglect them as much. Am I right? No matter how small the area is or how hard it is to reach it, this article will have you cleaning them in no time.

Air Vent

Using the crevice tool on your vacuum, start by sucking up any loose dust on the vent. Then go grab a microfiber cloth and butter knife from the kitchen. Wrap the butter knife in your cloth and run it through the slits in the vent. 

Car Vent

If you’re anything like me and suffer from allergies then you probably hate a dusty car. Nothing screams are we there yet?” like a car vent blowing dust in your face. I like to keep a sponge paintbrush in my glove box so I can easily wipe out the vents when need be.

Dishwasher Filter

Keeping old toothbrushes for cleaning is one of the best cleaning decisions you’ll ever make. Boy, do they come in handy. Especially when it comes to cleaning the dishwasher filter. Take some hot water and dish soap and then use the bristle of the toothbrush to remove any buildup or debris. 

Keyboard Cracks 

Have you noticed some crumbs stuck in your computer keyboard? Keyboard cleaning can be challenging without doing damage to your computer. First, you’ll want to turn it upside down and let and loose ends fall out. Then take a post-it-note, fold it in half, and run it between the keys. After that, you can easily spray it with some duster and walla you’re good to go!

Shower Tracks

Showers, shower doors, and shower tracks are without a doubt one of the toughest things to clean in a household. The power of soap scum is real. And who has time to scrub the shower track on their hands and knees? No one. Pour some vinegar on the track (a decent amount) and let it sit for about 30 minutes before scrubbing away with a scrubbing brush. Some people also claim that adding a small amount of dish soap helps.
