13 Clever Cleaning Tricks

1) Pick up pet hair with rubber gloves

Life is short, so why waste your whole day cleaning the house?

Here are 13 clever cleaning tricks that will make cleaning a breeze and transform your house into the cleanest place you’ve ever been!

Pets shed off a lot of hair all year round. Picking it up with your bare hands can be a hassle.

2) Remove toilet bowl stain with pumice stone

Next time try putting on a pair of rubber gloves and slightly damped with water. Pet hair should stick to the gloves like a magnet, making cleaning up pet hair a breeze!

Pumice stones are easy to find. They are sold in local hardware stores.

3) Clean shower head with vinegar

Alternatively, you may also use duct tape and vinegar, but that technique takes longer and is messier. Opt for pumice stones that come with a handle to easily remove stains in and around your toilet.

Fill a plastic bag with vinegar. Make sure to add enough vinegar to fully submerge your shower head in vinegar.

4) Remove water rings with a hair dryer

Use a rubber band or string to tie the bag onto your shower head and let it sit overnight. The next morning your shower head should be clean as new!

Here is a simple solution to the annoying water rings on your wooden table. Grab your trusty hair dryer and plug it in to “blow dry” the water rings away.

5) Deep clean oven with kitchen ingredients

It should disappear within 15 minutes. After drying, apply some olive oil to moisturize your furniture.

This is a simple solution for your worst nightmare, a dirty oven! To clean the dirty grime off your oven, grab some baking soda and vinegar.

6) Polish stainless steel with cream of tartar

Mix them in a bowl in equal parts. This should create a strong solution that you can use to wipe your oven clean.

Mix 1 tablespoon cream of tartar with a few drops of water. Rub the mixture onto the appliance with a clean sponge.

7) Use lemons to clean microwave

Finally, clean it all off with a damp paper towel.

Put 500ml water with lemons in a microwaveable glass bowl. Microwave on high for 5 minutes. Leave it inside until the liquid cools down.

8) Clean glass cook top with vinegar

This will create condensation which will loosen the caked on food inside your microwave. This will also deodorize your microwave. Finally wipe clean with a paper towel.

Spray your stove top with a 1:1 mixture of vinegar and water.

9) Use lint roller on lampshades and pillows

Let it sit for a couple of minutes and wipe it down with a clean rag or towel.

Lint rollers are not just for clothes. You can also use them for household items that accumulate dust such as lampshades and pillows.

10) Get stains off with a rubbing alcohol

Use a lint roller the same way you would use it on clothes to clean your lamp shades, pillows, and anything else that’s dusty around the house.

Fill a spray bottle with rubbing alcohol and spray it on your dirty microfiber couch. Scrub with a clean brush and ta-da!

11) Use a cordless stick vacuum

Your couch should be as good as new.

Giant vacuums take up a lot of storage space and are not flexible enough for hard-to-reach areas. Go for cordless stick models like the Hoover Air Cordless 2-in-1.

12) Clean cabinets with dish cleaner

Cordless stick vacuums are good for homes under 800 square feet.

Think of a dish cleaner as a big toothbrush. It covers a much larger surface area allowing you to clean faster more effectively.

Finish by wiping the soap off with a wet wash cloth.
