The best cleaning hacks everyone should know

I have gathered all the best cleaning hacks to make cleaning your house quick and easy. Because…. who doesn’t want a clean house? 

You definitely need these cleaning hacks in your life!

1. Sanitize kitchen sponge 

Do you ever stop to think about all the germs that are on your kitchen sponges? Yuck!

Make sure you are sanitizing your sponges regularly to keep them clean and germ free. 

Here is a quick cleaning hack to help you sanitize your sponge and clean your microwave. 

Just microwave a damp sponge on high for one minutes to two minutes, this will help to kill bacteria.

Then use the sponge to wipe down the microwave. Now you have a nice germ free sponge and a cleaner microwave.

2. Baking soda for easy stovetop cleaning

We all want our stovetops to be nice and clean. The problem is that we just don’t want to spend everyday scrubbing them.

Use this cleaning hack to clean your stovetops without having to scrub. 

All you will need it baking soda, just pour some on your stovetop, sprinkle on some water and let it sit for one hour. Then wipe it clean. No scrubbing involved! 

3. Use coffee filters for dusting electronics

Coffee filters are a great hack for cleaning your electronic screens.

All you have to do is get them a tiny bit damp and then you can use them to wipe down sensitive screens like your TV, computer screen, and phone. 

The coffee filters are gentle so they won’t scratch your surfaces and they don’t leave behind lint and fibers like paper towels and hand towels. 

4. Dishwasher cleans more than just dishes

Did you know that you can clean more than just dishes in your dishwasher. Anything that is dishwasher safe such as plastic toys, hair brushes, refrigerator shelfs, baseball caps, and more! 

You can use the dishwasher to clean anything that won’t get damaged by heat and isn’t electronic. So don’t just limit your dishwasher for dishes.

Take a look around your house and see what you can clean, sanitize and disinfect using your dishwasher. This will help save you time, and making your cleaning easier! 

5. Use a pillow case for cleaning fan blades

Have you looked at your fan blades lately? The can get covered in dust and are such a pain to clean. Make cleaning them easier by using a pillowcase. 

All you have to do is get an old pillowcase, and place each fan blade into the pillow case and wipe it off. You can even get the pillow case damp first or spray down the blades. 

This hack is great because instead of having all the dust fall down all over you and the floor, it stays inside the pillowcase.

Then you can just turn it inside out, shake it out, and throw it in the washer. 

6. Use newspaper for cleaning glass

If you have a bunch of newspaper then use it next time you are cleaning glass surfaces.

Its actually better than using paper towels because it doesn’t leave lint and streaks behind. 

Your glass surfaces will be looking nice and shiny and you will be saving paper towels and recycling your wasted newspaper. 

7. Lemons and salt to clean cutting board

You don’t want to clean your cutting boards with chemical sprays. Instead use lemons and salt to get them clean naturally. 

Just sprinkle on some course salt and then use a lemon cut in half to scrub the surface with the cut side down.

Squeeze the lemon as you scrub, this will help to release lemon juice as you go.

When you are done scrubbing let it sit for a couple minutes, and then wipe it down with a wet sponge. All done! 

8. Baking soda for neutralizing odors

Surfaces such as carpet, rugs, and couches can trap odors. To neutralize these odors and help to keep your house smelling fresh and clean you can use baking soda. 

All you have to do is sprinkle some baking soda on the area that you want to deodorize, let it sit for 15 minutes or up to 24 hours and then vacuum it like normal. 

This is a cheap and easy way help you make your house smell good naturally. No one want’s their house to smell bad! 

9. Aluminum foil for scrubbing glass baking dishes 

Have a glass baking dish with hard to remove residue. Use some aluminum foil to get the job done easy. 

Just get piece of foil, make it into a ball, and then put some dish soap on it to scrub the dish clean.

The aluminum foil is thicker than a sponge so it will help to remove the residue without scratching the glass. 

10. Soap and water in your blender
