10 Cleaning Hacks to Try Today

This article is for those of you who don’t like cleaning! Why not take these cool shortcuts – you will save time, energy and get the same great results. Here are 10 great cleaning hacks we found online that you can try today:

  1. Instead of fussing over wet sneakers, shove crumpled newspaper into them to soak up the moisture.
  2. Got water rings on your wooden table? Heat up with a hair dryer and then use olive oil to recondition the table.
  3. Use a god old lint roller to clean your dusty lampshades.
  4. To clean your ceiling fan blades: use an old pillow case and put the blade inside. Gently pull back the pillow case, wiping the dust INTO the case!
  5. Have some cheap vodka in the liquor cabinet? Put some into a spray bottle and gently spritz your uncovered mattress to kill bacteria, eliminate odors and disinfect.
  6. Use a handful of coarse salt and a lemon to scrub and clean your cutting boards.
  7. Wipe your baseboards with dryer sheets to repel dust.
  8. Finally, a solution for spilled glitter! Grab a lump of playdough and press it on to the glitter to pick up. (The kids will probably have fun with this one too!)
  9. To get rid of burnt pan bottoms, simmer 1C vinegar, 1C water for a minute or two. Then, take it off the heat and add 2 tablespoons of baking soda. Wait for the fizzing, then empty and scrub.
  10. If you have oil stains on your garage floor, try using Coke to scrub and remove them.
