Short cuts for cleaning can save us so much time and effort, here are 8 of the best tried and tested
- Use dryer sheets for cleaning
There is an anti-static coating on tumble dryer sheets, and when you use them to dust items and surfaces, you’re transferring that coating to everything you touch! What a no-brainer and one of the best ways to make dusting easier.
- Use white vinegar and baking soda for cleaning your dishwasher
Dishwashers can quickly get smelly and when this happens, whatever goes in to be washed, will not come out sparkling and hygienically clean as it should. However, add a generous amount of white vinegar and baking soda to a hot wash cycle and you’ll find your dishwasher no longer pongs!
- Continue with the white vinegar and baking soda theme
For stinking, clogged up drains, simply pour white vinegar and baking soda down, add boiling water and the stench and blockages should disappear. Since the products are not harmful to you, your drain or the environment, you can repeat this as frequently as necessary.
- Bed socks have a dual purpose!
If you wear fluffy bed socks or have been gifted them for Christmas one year and have never worn them, then you should try popping them on the end of your Swiffer and running them over your floors for an instant dusting and buffing effect. Alternatively, wear the socks and glide around your home in them (keeping fit while cleaning), then simply wash and reuse them!
- Bed linen storage hack
Once you’ve washed your bed linen, fold the sheets and store them inside the pillow cases. Not only does this look nice and neat when stored, but it makes it super easy for you to find the matching linen when you’re making your bed up.
While cleaning hacks can make your life easier and save you time, what would make your life even simplerand save you even more time, would be to hire a professional cleaner! For most of us, our schedules are hectic and cleaning takes a backseat in the overall scheme of things, but with a cleaner who comes in regularly and helps you to keep on top of things, your life is simplified to such an extent that you’ll wonder why you didn’t hire one before.
