Cleaning Hacks You Should Know About

Cleaning Hacks You Should Know About

Who doesn’t love a regular household item serves double or triple duty, especially those you can use for cleaning purposes.

But let’s face it, not all cleaning hacks or shortcuts get the job done, or at least not as well as their more conventional, store-bought counterparts. .

Ready to try some out for yourself? Here are 9 tough household cleaning jobs and off-the-wall cleaning hacks that work.

Burnt-On Food – If you don’t enjoy scrubbing stubborn, stuck-on food from pots and pans, try adding a dryer sheet. Simply drop one into a pot or pan filled with soap and warm water, let it sit for about an hour, and you’ll be amazed at house easily all that  food washes off.

Glass – Paper towels and cleaning cloths can leave streaks on mirrors and glass. To ensure they sparkle, wipe them down with clean coffee filters instead.

Chalkboards – A fun and practical addition to any home, chalkboards are a great place to list to-dos, the week’s meal plan, or quotes meant to inspire the family. But that chalky residue we can do without. To get your chalkboard truly clean, wipe it down with a baby wipe.

Dry-Erase Boards – Dry erase markers are notorious for leaving stains, but you can make them disappear with a spritz of hairspray. After you wipe the stain away, wash with soap and water to remove any sticky residue.

Permanent Marker – You love it when little Suzie expresses herself creatively. You just wish she hadn’t done it in permanent marker. On you wall. No need to break out the brushes and paint, just rub a little sunscreen on the stain to gently remove it.

Oil Stains on Clothing – It never fails. You wear your new shirt out to dinner, only to drip oil on it. All is not lost. Before tossing it in the wash, rub the stain with plain, white chalk which will absorb the stain and give that shirt a fighting chance.

Porcelain Tubs and Sinks – If you’re battling rust stains on your porcelain tub or sink, dab a little mayo on it, let it sit for a bit, then wipe clean.

Wood Floors – Skip the pricy wood floor cleaner. Just add equal parts vegetable oil and white vinegar to a clean spray bottle, spray down your wood floor, and mop clean for a shiny finish.  

Glass Shower Doors – The same product that keeps your car windshield sparkling – windshield water repellant – can be equally effective on grimy shower doors. Just spray the doors with the repellant and wipe gently to keep soap scum and hard water stains at bay.

Here’s something else to keep clean: your furnace or air conditioning filter. And while there are different makes, models, and materials for these products, we’re afraid there’s no hack that can fill the bill. Still, it’s worth the time and effort to keep them clean or replace them as needed.  You’ll breather cleaner air and save your heating and cooling systems a pile of wear and tear in the process.
