Five Sneaky Cleaning Tips
Silly me, I thought I could wash my floors like a normal person yet somehow I managed to irritate the slipped disc in my back and now I’m in an insane amount of pain. If you hate cleaning as much as I do and are looking for tricks to make the whole ordeal easier, then you’ll want to check out these 5 sneaky cleaning tricks:
#1.) Use coffee filters instead of paper towels to clean your windows. Paper towels can leave streaks and lint on the glass. Coffee filters won't, and they're just as cheap.
#2.) Clean your microwave with a cup of water and baking soda. Just mix it together, and microwave it until it starts boiling. It'll get rid of any weird smell that's been lingering, and also make it easier to wipe down the inside. Use a coffee cup so you have a handle to grab when you take it out.
#3.) Use dryer sheets to clean your window blinds. It creates an anti-static barrier that helps prevent dust from building up again.
#4.) To clean your oven, use a wet pumice stone. Obviously, that's for REALLY tough, blackened build-up. You don't want to scratch anything. According to "Reader's Digest", it works better than anything you can buy in a spray bottle.
#5.) Use a denture tablet to clean your toilet. Just drop one in and leave it for at least 30 minutes. Or overnight if it's REALLY bad. After it dissolves, any stains on the inside of the bowl should come off easily with a toilet brush.
