These hacks will make cleaning a whole lot easier!
There are a lot of cleaning hacks out there. And not all of them are as effective or useful as we’d like. But luckily, sometimes you come across a cleaning hack that is just too good not to share. And that is why you’ll find the four top cleaning hacks right here.
1. Clean your cleaning appliances
The first hack that is important for keeping your house clean, is cleaning your cleaning appliances. You might think that your vacuum or your washing machine does not need any cleaning. After all, they are cleaning supplies! But your dishwasher, vacuum and other cleaning appliances will be better at their job if you keep them clean and tidy. So clean your dish washer with some vinegar and baking soda and make sure the filter of your vacuum stays clean too. That way, you can clean your house more effectively!
2. Clean your TV
You might not notice it right away, but your TV gets dirty too. Dust collects on the screen, negatively impacting your viewing experience and the TV’s lifespan. Turn your TV off and wipe the screen with a microfiber cloth. If your TV needs a better cleaning, then spray some screen-safe cleaner on the cloth and wipe the screen down. Never spray the spray directly on the screen; you might damage it. Let it all dry and turn your TV back on. It will be clean and streak-free!
We sleep on it every day but we bet that none of us clean it very often; our mattress. And that isn’t great for your health because your mattress gets dirty! But luckily, it is easy to clean. First, take off your bedding and vacuum the mattress. Then treat stains with a spray bottle filled with water and hydrogen peroxide. After that, use baking soda on the mattress to get rid of any unwanted smells. Just sprinkle it on top of the mattress and wait for an hour. Vacuum the mattress again and repeat the process on the backside of the mattress.
4. Ceiling fan
This one has been dubbed the ‘pillowcase hack’ by Real Simple. And that is because the cleaning hack involves a pillowcase. Your ceiling fan gathers a lot of dust and you don’t want that to negatively impact the air quality in your home. So put a pillowcase around one of the blades of your ceiling fan and slowly pull it back while gathering the dust inside of the pillowcase. That way, the dust will be contained and not on the floor or in the air. After that, you can clean your ceiling fan like you would usually do. Just make sure you dry it off after cleaning since it will gather more dust if it stays damp.
