With these genius cleaning hacks that only the pros know, you’ll have your home looking twice as spotless in half the time.
Make your sink fixtures gleam with wax paper.
After sanitizing your sink with an antibacterial cleanser, polish your faucets and tap handles with some wax paper. Not only will this help remove water spots, but the wax will also help prevent future stains.
Clean your vents with Turtle Wax.
They often go ignored during the cleaning process, your vents accumulate a surprising amount of dust and debris, especially during the summer and winter when they’re most in use. All you need is a little bit of Turtle Wax to get them looking good as new. This wax “works great and makes the vents easy to clean because the dust just wipes right off.”
Keep your washer smelling fresh with bleach.
While many of us think of our washing machines as self-cleaning, that’s far from the case. Use bleach to clean things for good. Run your machine on the sanitize setting with a combination of hot water and a quart of bleach. So long, funky-smelling clothes!
Clean your shower head with vinegar.
That spotty shower head in your bathroom is just as gross as it looks. Keeping the outside of your shower head clean isn’t difficult. Simply fill a sandwich bag with white vinegar and affix it to your shower head with rubber bands, leaving it to soak overnight.
Eliminate upholstery stains with shaving cream.
Make sure that you test this method out on a hidden area of your couch before actually putting it to use, as there is always the small chance of damaging the fabric.
Just rub a little bit of shaving cream (anything but the gel kind) into the stain, let it sit for 30 minutes or overnight, and then blot it dry.
Un-scratch your plates with baking soda.
It’s easy to make your plates look brand new again with some baking soda. Simply make a paste of baking soda and water, buff it into the scratches, and in no time, your dishes will look as good as new.
Freshen up your garbage disposal with some lemons.
Getting rid of the nasty odors from our garbage disposal simply squeeze some lemons into your drain, together with some ice cubes and as your disposal gobbles up those rinds, it will start to smell fresh and fabulous.
