Use Vinegar for Hard Water Stains: To remove hard water stains on faucets, showerheads, and glass surfaces, soak a cloth or paper towel in white vinegar and wrap it around the stained area.
Microwave Steam Cleaning: Fill a microwave-safe bowl with water, add a few slices of lemon or a tablespoon of vinegar, and microwave it on high for a few minutes until the steam condenses on the walls.
Dryer Sheet Dusting: Instead of using a traditional dust cloth, grab a used dryer sheet. The anti-static properties in the sheet can help repel dust and pet hair from surfaces, making dusting quicker and more effective.
Baking Soda Carpet Refresh: Sprinkle baking soda over your carpet, let it sit for about 15-30 minutes, and then vacuum it up.
Squeegee Shower Walls: After every shower, use a squeegee to quickly wipe down the walls and glass surfaces.
Sock Cleaning for Blinds: Put an old sock over your hand, dip it in a mixture of water and a small amount of cleaning solution, then run your hand along each slat of your blinds.
One-Minute Rule: Implement the "one-minute rule" throughout your day. If you see a task that will take less than a minute to complete, do it immediately.
