Spring cleaning hacks
Start with decluttering. Did you know that simply decluttering your home can make it seem a thousand times cleaner? It’s true. If your home has piles of clutter on every surface, simply taking a few minutes each day to declutter your home can make a huge difference. Set a timer and work on decluttering for just 15 minutes. You’ll be amazed at how much you can get done.
Use Your Dishwasher to Spring Clean
Did you know that many things can be cleaned in the dishwasher? This makes your life so much easier. For this spring cleaning hack you can put the following items in the dishwasher:
- stove hood filter
- light fixture covers
Spring Clean While You Sleep
For this spring cleaning hack, you can clean while you sleep. For example, fill a plastic bag with white vinegar and use rubber bands to place it over your showerhead. As you sleep, the vinegar will work to clear out deposits that may be clogging the head.
Make sure to give the showerhead a good rinse the next morning to remove the vinegar. You can also clean your drains while you sleep. Pour baking soda in your drains followed by white vinegar. The reaction will cause a bubbling action that will clean the grease from your drains along with any stinky odors.
Clean Big Items in the Tub
When something is too big to fit in your kitchen sink, place it in the tub to wash. Things like miniblinds, oven racks, refrigerator drawers, etc. can be cleaned in the bathtub. You can even fill the tub and let these items soak so that you don’t have to do much work.
Tackle Soap Scum with Ease
Last, but not least, this spring cleaning hack has helped me more than once. Soap scum can be a big problem. You don’t have to use a lot of elbow grease. Get a dish brush with a fillable handle and add equal parts Dawn dish soap and white vinegar. Wet your shower walls and/or tub and scrub with the brush from top to bottom. The soap scum and grime washes away easily.
Cleaning is so much easier when you have some extra spring cleaning hacks to fall back on. You can use these hacks to get your home clean while still enjoying your latest Netflix obsession. You can even clean while you sleep.
