Home Cleaning Tricks – Part 2

If you enjoyed the first 15 cool home cleaning tricks for your home, get ready to take some notes on our next 15 home cleaning tricks!

Shower Head

Are you tired of the water spots left on your shower head?  Try getting rid of them using vinegar. Fill a plastic bag with vinegar and attach it to your shower head using a rubber band.  Let it soak overnight. In the morning the marks and water spots will wipe away with ease.

Shower Doors

Bring back out the lemon and salt. Using this mixture can make cleaning your shower doors easier than you imagined. Simply cut a lemon in half, dip it in salt, and scrub away.

Sink Faucet

If you are trying to make your faucet sparkle, you may be missing the final step after cleaning. Use wax paper to polish your faucet handles and spout. The wax in the paper also helps to repel water.

Bathtub

We didn’t forget about your bathtub. Using the same method used on your shower door, except this time a grapefruit can clean your bath tub or sink!

Cleaning Silver

Is your household silver becoming tarnished? Using toothpaste can act as a cleaner. Use a soft toothbrush or rag to rub the toothpaste into the designs on your silver pieces to bring it back to its former glory.

Windows

Do you typically use paper towels to clean your windows or mirrors? Try switching to newspaper. Switching to newspaper is a cost-effective way to cut back on paper towels and widow streaks.

Window Screens

Dish detergent to clean your window screens? We all know that every once in a while, our window screens need to be cleaned. Using dish detergent to clean window screens is the perfect way to get the job done. Mix the soap with water and wash it down.

Blinds

We all know it gets annoying when dust piles up on your blinds and can be embarrassing. Taking a vacuum to get rid of the dirt is as easy as 123.

Dust Surfaces

Sometimes you need something stronger than a feather duster. Using a lint roller is actually a great way to get rid of any unwanted dust, pet hair or lint.

Stains on Upholstery

Do you have any stains on your upholstery? Try rubbing a little shaving cream into the stain and blot dry. This can be a great way to quickly and simply remove any stains you have.

TV Screen

Use a soft dry cloth on your TV screen. A gentle wipe is enough to clean the screen without damaging it.

Baseboards

Spending a little too much time on your hands and knees cleaning your baseboards? By attaching a dryer sheet to your sweeper, you can pick up dust while adding a clean fresh scent around your home.

Carpet Stains

Do you have carpet stains? Removing them can be challenging but not anymore. When you get a hard to remove stain use vinegar, some water, and a steam iron. Mix vinegar and water in a 1:3 ratio, apply it to the stain, and then cover the stain with a wet cloth before you begin steaming it for about 30 seconds.

Washing Machine

Clean your washer. We tend to think our washer is self-cleaning because we always have water and soap in it. But that’s not the case. However, you can get rid of all the built-up bacteria by doing a empty load with hot water and a hint of bleach. This will also help kill off any lingering bacteria.

Mattress

Does your mattress need cleaning? On cleaning day add a little extra time for these steps to clean your mattress. Start by vacuuming your mattress then sprinkling baking soda on it. Let the baking soda sit for a few hours to help soak up any odors, then vacuum again.
