Housekeeping can be simple with the right cleaning trick. As a result, we searched through our archives and put together a list of the greatest cleaning tips we could uncover in order to lessen your workload. The next 33 cleaning tips are the absolute best, including uses for cooking spray and chopstick crevice cleaners.
Use Shaving Cream to Get Rid of Makeup Stains
For tough makeup stains, a small amount of shaving cream goes a long way. Shaving cream, according to Leanne Stapf of The Cleaning Authority, dissolves through the oil and aids in removing makeup stains from any garment when used in conjunction with a brief washing cycle.
Simply blot up as much as you can with a clean cloth after carefully applying a couple of squirts of shaving cream to the stain and letting it sit for around 10 minutes. After rinsing the area with cool water and putting it in the washer, your items will be makeup-free.
Put a Bag of Vinegar in The Shower Heads and Faucets to Soak
Want a hands-free trick to thoroughly clean your shower head and all the faucets in your house? Simply place diluted white vinegar in a zippered plastic baggie, fill it halfway, and twist tie it over your shower head, bathroom faucet, or kitchen faucet. Let it sit overnight to allow the vinegar to gradually break down and eliminate all the grime buildup.
To clean, keep a Magic Eraser in the shower
Magic erasers are a versatile item. They can quickly deep clean anything, from tile grout to sneakers, thanks to their abrasive melamine foam construction. Furthermore, because they are water-activated, if you keep one on hand in your shower, you can use it to swiftly clean the tub and shower walls before rinsing yourself off, exactly like Apartment Therapy writer Olivia Muenter does.
To Prevent Cross-Contamination, Mark Used Sponges
Unsanitary germs thrive on kitchen sponges. Before throwing away your used dish sponges, consider using them to thoroughly clean dirtier areas of your house, such as the bathroom or floors.
When you next determine that your kitchen sponge is too filthy to wipe dishes or counters, snip a corner off of it. You won’t unintentionally use it on something hygienic because it will be “marked” as a utility sponge going forward.
Your garbage can liner will stay in place if you use Command Hooks
Despite how great and inexpensive basic plastic garbage cans are, it is difficult to prevent trash bag liners and used shopping bags that have been converted to trash bags from sliding down them.
The good news is that if you attach a Command Hook upside-down to the two shorter sides of your garbage can, approximately 14 or 13 of the way down from the top, you can loop the drawstring or handles of the trash bag around it to keep it in place as you fill it up.
Using a Chopstick, Clean the Nooks Around the Fixtures
If you thought chopsticks were only useful for takeout, you might want to reconsider. These practical items double as effective cleaning implements for removing grime from your kitchen and bathroom’s crevices. Simply wrap a cloth around a chopstick to thoroughly clean vents, grout, faucets, and other hard-to-reach small fixtures and crevices.
To Remove Makeup from Clothes and Other Surfaces, Use Baby Shampoo
Baby shampoo may gently remove makeup off surfaces, clothing, bedding, towels, cosmetic brushes, and other items, just as it does with oil and grime from hair. Baby shampoo may be used like soap to thoroughly clean your makeup brushes while submerged in a stream of tepid water. All you need to do is wet a cloth with water and dab it into a nickel-sized blob of the shampoo to gently wipe out a makeup stain from the fabric.
