Spring cleaning life hacks

There are tons of helpful tricks that can help make spring cleaning fast and easy. Here are some helpful tips.

The first tip is that you can use your dishwasher for far more than just dishes. Once every few months, toss some of the following into the dishwasher for a deep clean: contact lens cases, hair brushes, makeup brushes, pet dishes, plastic kids toys, refrigerator shelves, soap dishes, tweezers, various knobs and pulls, and even your shower-head (if it’s removable). thing

The second tip is to dust with dryer sheets. They are a cheap substitute for more expensive electrostatic cloths and work just as well. Lone socks that have lost their mates, when worn as a mitten, are excellent for dusting tight areas and Venetian blinds. Remember to work top to bottom to avoid wasting time. dryer sheet

Another tip concerns washing windows. For a quick solution, mix equal parts white vinegar and warm water or add one teaspoon of mild dish-washing liquid to several gallons of water. But time your cleaning wisely: Sunshine will cause your windows to dry too quickly, leaving streaks. window clean

Lastly, after cleaning everything, you may want to organize. One helpful trick for de-cluttering is evaluating 1) what you want to keep displayed, 2) what you want to keep but not display, and 3) what you can get rid of. Separate out these things and store the items you want to keep in a box or boxes, pack up the things you don’t want to throw out or donate them to a charity if they could be of use (clothes, bedsheets, jewelry, school supplies, etc.), and then arrange your remaining items in a pleasing fashion.

These are the life hacks to help make your spring cleaning easy and fast. Now your home will feel and look cleaner and less cluttered!
