13 Cleaning Tips You’ve Never Heard of
Clean your bathroom, kitchen and floors with these affordable, do-it-yourself cleaning tricks. Chances are you never even heard of these household remedies.
Bust Dust on Your Blinds
The best way to dust blinds?
Close them, then wipe up and down with an old dryer sheet. It’ll create an antistatic barrier that helps prevent dust from building up again.
Bust Out the Coffee Filter
To clean glass and mirrors, use coffee filters, not paper towels. They leave no streaks or lint – and they’re cheap.
Grab a Pumice Stone
A wet pumice stone will clean a dirty oven faster than any spray-on product.
Clean Your Bathroom Mat With Ease
Vacuuming bathroom mats is a nightmare.
Toss them in the wash every week or two instead.
Seventh Generation dish liquid diluted with water is a great nontoxic all-purpose cleanser.
Just put two squirts in a spray bottle and fill it with water.
Use Our Secret Weapon
A powdered product called Bar Keepers Friend. We use it on everything. Its active ingredient is rhubarb powder, which really cuts through grit and grime. It cleans glass-top stoves, counters, toilets, porcelain, and more. Your sink will never be shinier.
Clean Those Tough to Reach Places
Clean cobwebs with a yardstick covered by a tube sock. This also works for cleaning under stoves and refrigerators.
Get Rid of the Grime
Shine your bathroom tiles with lemon oil. It also helps prevent mold and mildew.
