Easy Cleaning Hacks For Your Household

If only we had a fairy godmother to turn our messy houses into a clean one, it would be enchanting right? There’s no easy way to keep your house spotless. Especially if you have little kids running around the house, you would always wish for some way to keep your home spick and span when guests arrive. Maids are too expensive to hold on to and you rarely have time in your hands to have an occasional spring cleaning. Fret not, for here’s a few ways to make your life easy with these few cleaning tips.

Plastic wraps to the rescue!

Leftovers, broken eggs, spilt milk, you get the picture right? A fridge can never be kept clean for a long time. The cleaning will only last for seconds and its back to square one. You have to keep taking the things out and cleaning them and then putting them back again. A smooth way to keep your hands clean is to put plastic wrap on the fridge compartments and the panels. Now you can remove and replace without using a sponge to scrub away the stubborn marks. You can also prevent your kitchen tiles getting messy from whisking eggs or whip cream by using a plastic wrap to cover the bowl. You can say goodbye to the spots on the tiles and walls!

Keeping your living room ‘guest ready’

You’ve only got 5 minutes till your dinner guests arrive and everything looks spot on until your toddler decides to spill his juice box on your upholstered sofas and we all know how this goes, because of the padding and the cushions it would be difficult to wash off the stains easily. Hold your breath because all you need is rubbing alcohol and a sponge and kiss your stains goodbye. Keep your window sills new as it was by putting in vinegar and baking soda, use a brush to scrub the dirt and remove the residues with a tissue or a cloth. Baking soda makes anything old as good as new.

Lemon it all

Lemon has natural bleaching properties that will make anything go from ugly to beautiful. If your cutting board is yellow, scrub it with lemon to get it back to the original color. The furniture in your custom made seating has gone off and you want to get it back. Don’t rush to call professional cleaners, you only need 1 lemon and 1 cup vegetable oil. Your own homemade appliance polish and you didn’t even have to spend cent
