Well here’s adding some more cleaning hacks to your list so you can use them throughout the home to ensure that it’s squeaky clean, just the way you like it! Don’t believe that there could be any more hacks left to talk about? Neither did we until we came across these. So here are 16 cleaning tips for every neat freak to try out.

1. Clean the tub every day. 

This is the best way to ensure that your tub is looking clean and fresh every single day. Get a scrub brush with a handle that you can fill and add a mixture of half blue Dawn dish detergent and half vinegar. Scrub once a day.

2. Toilet cleaner for grout.

Take your trusty toilet cleaner and fill in tile grout. Let that sit for 10-15 minutes and scrub off the cleaner for new and improved grout!

3. Wax paper for a cleaner faucet.

 Once you have finished cleaning your faucets, rub them with wax paper. They’ll come out shinier and resist water.

4. Cleaner kitchen cabinets with vinegar and dish soap. 

The Dawn dish detergent and vinegar trick works magic on kitchen cabinets as well.

5. You’re just a pair of tongs and microfibre cloth away from cleaner blinds.  

6. Cleaning the glass stove top just got so much easier. 

Anyone who has a glass stovetop knows how difficult it can be to actually clean one of those, but not if we can help it. Next time you’re gearing up to clean one of these bad boys, try this: Wipe off all the loose debris with a towel. Then, soak rags in hot, soapy water and sprinkle baking soda over the stovetop. Place the soaked rags on top of the glass surface and leave them there for 15-30 minutes. Come back, and leftover debris should just wipe off.

7. Use cream of tartar for cleaner stainless steel appliances.

Take a dab of cream of tartar and mix a few drops of water into it. Scrub this mixture with a sponge over your stainless steel. And we thought cream of tartar was just good to eat!

8. Have a glass shower door? Here’s how to clean it. 

I don’t know which one is worse to clean, glass stovetop or glass shower door. Maybe they’re both equally as annoying, but thank goodness there’s a hack for both. For your glass shower door, take pantyhose and start scrubbing the door. That’s it, it’s that easy.

9. Cleaning window sills is a lot easier than you think. 

Wipe the sill with an old rag and start scrubbing a mixture of baking soda and vinegar with a toothbrush.

10. Need to clean your car seat? Try this.

Spills in the car are inevitable, but a clean car seat isn’t. Make a mixture of vinegar, Dawn dish detergent, and club soda and add it to a spritzer. Spray a very generous amount of solution to the seat and scrub using a brush. Your seats will be good as new.

11. Add disinfectant to your toilet bowl brush. 

A small about of disinfectant will go a long way in keeping the brush clean and smelling fresh.

12. Sanitize your sponges.

A lot of us forget that we need to clean cleaning products as well. You can simply pop a sponge into the microwave for 2 minutes, on high heat, and that’ll kill 99% of the bacteria.

13. Clean the dishwasher. 

The dishwasher can start smelling funky from time to time. Best way to ensure it stays clean is by washing it with some baking soda, vinegar and bleach.

14. How to clean the showerhead.

Take a plastic bag and fill it with white vinegar and a few drops of any essential oil if you don’t like the smell of the vinegar. Wrap the bag around the showerhead and leave it overnight. Next day, remove the bag and wipe the showerhead clean.

15. The drain in your sink can use some cleaning too.

16. Dust off that ceiling fan with a pillowcase. 

Slide the pillowcase over the blade and wipe it, pulling the case towards you. The pillowcase will easily collect all the dust, ensuring that none of the dust falls on the ground/furniture below.
