No-scrub microwave cleaning trick
Scrubbing the inner part of the microwave is daunting.
Especially when something terrible has just happened (e.g. your teenage boy wanted to “cook” something using the mic but he left an incredible amount of mess)
So, if your mic is just too dirty and you don’t really have time for scrubbing it (neither does your teenage kid), give this water-and-vinegar trick a try.
In a microwave-safe bowl, pour 1 part of white vinegar and 4 part of water, then microwave it for 2-3 minutes.
After that, open the mic door, use a glove, and wipe the microwave with a sponge!
That’s it! No need for scrubbing!
Clean your blender in 1 minute
Blender is heavy and bulky.
And when it gets dirty, you need something tricky.
When you finish using the blender, put 2-3 drops of dishwashing soap into the blender plus a cup of water.
Put the lid on.
And then press on.
After 20 seconds, press off.
After that, rinse the blender with clean water to remove the soap (you can do this for 40 seconds).
That’s it! One quick minute for cleaning the blender!
Soak your showerhead with vinegar overnight
Wait, what? How can you soak something that is hang up there?
Well, you can use plastic bag!
Fill a plastic bag with vinegar, use it to “envelope” the showerhead, then tie the plastic bag to the showerhead using a rubber band.
Do this trick at night (make sure everybody is finish using the shower room).
Open the plastic bag in early morning (before anybody use the shower room) and quickly wipe the showerhead!
Are you surprised enough with the result?
If there is still a little hard-water stain left on the showerhead, you might want to repeat the trick another night.
P.S. When you do this trick, make sure to fill a decent amount of vinegar to the plastic bag so your showerhead can be optimally soaked.
Do the vinegar-in-plastic-bag trick for the faucets too
Alright, how many faucets are there inside your house? And how many of them has hard water stains left?
If you love an absolute cleanliness, seeing a hard water stain on the faucet can be a real pain.
So, try the vinegar-in-plastic-bag trick for the faucets too.
Fill a plastic bag with vinegar, use a rubber band to tie the bag into the faucet, and let it sit overnight.
In the morning, wipe the faucet with a clean sponge.
Isn’t that super easy and cheap?
Use a lint roller for a quick dusting
Alright. Imagine somebody is about to visit your home in 5 minutes and you realize that you haven’t dust your couch and lampshade in the living room.
What would you do?
Don’t waste time to run to the garage to pick up the heavy vacuumer.
There is a more brilliant way to tackle the dust.
Grab a lint roller. Yes, that small, light-weighted tool is a genius invention.
You can use it in the laundry room (of course!) but you can also use it to quickly dust your couch or your lampshades.
The sticky surface of the lint roller can quickly “absorb” the dust so you can save your time and sanity!
Craft DIY dusting slippers
Dusting the floor is already one big cleaning chore, right?
So if you’re not feeling like really dusting your floor, express your creativity instead to craft a pair of dusting slippers.
Stick a microfiber mat into the bottom of each slipper, trim the edges, and use it to walk around the house.
P.S. if your floor looks super dirty, then you can give the microfiber mat a little amount of water + floor cleaner.
