Cleaning your house is a chore nobody likes to do. From dusting shelves to scrubbing the bathroom, you will lose your whole day and end up tired and stressed. But what if it doesn’t have to be this way? What if there are cleaning methods that will help you clean your house in an effective and creative way? That is why we have decided to compile this list of interesting solutions for cleaning every part of your house in a matter of minutes.
Microwave cleaning with lemons
There is nothing worse than scrubbing the inside of the microwave. Disgusting smell and sticky grease are hard to take out and on top of that, you will lose a few hours just to see your microwave dirty again after a week. Luckily we have a quick and easy solution for you.
To take off the grease and completely clean your microwave you will need one lemon and a bowl of water. Cut lemon in slices and place it in a bowl full of water, then turn your microwave on high for 3 minutes and let it sit for an additional 3 minutes so the bowl cools down. After that, just use a tissue to wipe the inside of the microwave and it will all come off easily. To get rid of the smells, put a bowl of vinegar and leave it for one hour in the microwave. With these two methods, your microwave will be clean in a matter of minutes and you won’t get stressed when the time comes to clean it again.
Shield your books from dust with linen
This is not a cleaning method, but more of a prevention so you don’t have to clean every book on your shelves. To make this contraption you will need to take measures of your shelves and that much linen cloth. First of all start by measuring length and distance from the shortest book to the top of the shelf so you know how much of the linen you will need to buy. Always buy extra cloth on all sides so you don’t end up short on one side. To hang your curtain for books simply fasten the top and sides of the shelf and cut off the excess linen if needed.
Use household cleaners to polish glass surfaces
When it comes to shining your windows, mirrors and other glassy surfaces, the best way is to use household cleaners. There are some alternative ways with mixtures of everyday items, but it is still better to go with specially made products. By using a protective hydrophobic glass coating you can clean almost any kind of glass surface, as well as protect it from damage caused by dirt and grime. This is still the most effective way of house cleaning, according to professionals.
Use socks to clean blinders
Our last method involves socks and vinegar to clean your blinders. Don’t you hate when dust piles up on your blinders and you have to use two types of rags and cleaning solution just to have it return after a few days? This is one of those solutions that once you try it you will never come back to old ways of cleaning and it will take you only a couple of minutes. All you need is a pair of socks and a half-and-half mixture of water and vinegar. Put both hands in socks and dip one in the mixture. With your wet hand, you will clean blinders and with your dry one, you will wipe off the dampness. Quick and easy isn’t it?
