5 cleaning hacks you should know
Everyone wants to have a clean house. Let’s be honest, though. It’s really hard to have a spotless home on a consistent basis. Even if you do manage to keep your home tidy throughout the week — you still need to contend with the natural buildup that occurs over time during routine use.
No matter how hard you try to maintain a pristine, spotless home — it always seems to slip away when you least expect it. Don’t worry, you don’t have to be a cleaning guru to give your home a much-needed deep clean. Here are 5 hacks to help you out:
For something that is rarely touched, showerheads get dirty surprisingly fast. The buildup over time can get difficult to scrub off and more often than not the usual cleaners just don't cut it.
The easiest way to get rid of those pesky stains is in the pantry! Just mix equal parts of vinegar and dish soap and get scrubbing!
Take your time:
Sometimes you don't need any special products for deep cleaning, all you need is some time. Especially when it comes to cleaning your toilet.
Just apply your toilet and bathroom cleaner and let it break down the gunk for 15 minutes before going in for a good scrub. The Better Home's toilet cleaner is great for this as it is non-corrosive and does the job without leaving any toxic fumes behind.
You can also try this hack on tiles. Apply our floor cleaner liquid on your tiles and leave it on for some time before you wipe it clean.
Clean your couch with baking soda:
To deal with most fabric stains, you can just throw the cloth in the washer. But when it comes to couch stains, it can get really tricky!
But a little bit of baking soda can do some real wonders for you. Scrub the stain with a paste of baking soda and water. The abrasive granules with get rid of the stain without harming the fabric. You can also dust some baking soda on your couch to get rid of odor. Give it a quick brush and vacuum it clean.
Cloudy glasses no more:
Cloudy glasses are a menace! You can wipe it away neither can you wash it away with soap. But did you know vinegar and paper towels were the super duo you needed?
Just take a teensy bit of vinegar on a paper towel and wipe your glasses with it for a crystal-clear shine. It works even better on mirrors!
Cabinet gunk with oil and baking soda:
Corners are already a difficult spot to clean and when you think of the gunk inside cabinets, it makes the task seem even more difficult.
But all you need is baking soda and some oil. Yes, oil! Make a thick paste with baking soda, vegetable oil, or baby oil and use an old toothbrush to scrub away all the accumulated dirt and gunk from the corners.
