Cleanliness is next to godliness! Everyone of us want their home to be sparkling clean but for the time and efforts it takes to get the mess out of our sight.We have often let cleanliness (and ourselves) take a break. However, like everyone else, we too don’t enjoy being accused of hosting dust and dirt at home. Hence, I resolved to research on some cleaning hacks this year to make life easier as well as to get the accusations off our shoulder.
And here I am, with some genius cleaning tricks that will not only save our time and efforts but also our hard earned money.
Prepare a mixture of 1 tbsp baking soda, 1/3rd of a glass of vinegar, 1 tbsp washing powder and some hot water. Put this mixture in a spray water bottle and spray a thin layer of it on the sofa. Let it rest for a few hours before vacuuming it up for a fresh and clean sofa.
Rub some salt on dry chopping boards with the help of half-cut lemon followed by a thorough rub using a brush or sponge while keeping it submerged in hot water. You may want to repeat the process for better results.
Bathroom tiles and grout lines
Prepare a mix of vinegar and baking soda and rub it in the grout lines between tiles. You can also use it on the entire tiles area. Leave it for a couple of minutes before rinsing it with water. Wipe the area dry and rejoice seeing your sparkling bathroom floor.
Did you know you can use canned air to clean the bathroom exhaust? Simply hold the bottle of canned air right below the exhaust pointing the nozzle towards it and let the magic begin (don’t forget to press the button).
Hard water stains are extremely unflattering to eyes and mar the look of the toilet and kitchen. If you are as sick as me of using those chemical laden and unpleasant smelling stain removers on the faucets. Cut a lemon in half and give your faucets a good rub down. Rinse with warm water after a few minutes for spotless faucets.
Alternatively, you can soak some paper towels in vinegar and cover the stained areas with them. Keep spraying them with more vinegar every 3-5 minutes. Remove the towels after 20 minutes and scrub off the area with an old toothbrush. For stubborn stains, put the vinegar soaked towels back on for another hour so before repeating the scrubbing process. And…tada!
Let us know in the comments below how many of these did you try at home.
