You must have seen your mother waking up at five every morning to clean the house. You are cleaning every nook and corner of the house to be pest free, sparkling-clean, and look guest-ready. Nowadays, we have the latest cleaning pieces of equipment, such as dusters, scrubbers, glass cleaning liquid, and heavy-duty vacuum cleaners.
However, in less than a week, it tends to look untidy again (mind you cleaning your home is not a day job but a continuous process). Most weekends are reserved for 'cleaning and completing other household chores' if you are a working class. Your whole day tends to pass in a blink, leaving you fatigued and drained. It gets challenging to keep your house presentable at all times, due to much work and less time to complete all chores.
FUMIGATION WAREHOUSE recommends this practice, DIY tips you need to make your duties super-easy to clean your house quickly and stress-free. It is a continuous process requiring rigorous efforts. But if you don't have time to spare for cleaning, try these easy house cleaning tips and clean even the stubborn areas in your house.
- Wipe Window Blinds With Water And Vinegar: If it has been a while since you last cleaned your window blinds, you need a better alternative to that dirty old cloth you use to clean almost everything. Try water and vinegar. Mix the two liquids in equal parts in a bowl and dip a sock into it. Now wear the sock on your hand from inside out and clean both the window blinds' sides. You will have cleaned those dusty blinds in no time.
- Use a Pillowcase to Clean the Accumulated Dust on Ceiling Fans: Cleaning ceiling fans is one back-breaking task that we avoid for months. Standing on a ladder or a chair, trying to reach the blades with a broom, making sure that the grime hits the dustpan (and not anywhere on the floor tiles). It eventually gets cumbersome that you postpone the task until the fan's accumulated dust falls on your head! Well, before this situation arises, try this simple trick to clean the blades of your ceiling fan. Use an old pillowcase and gently slide it over the blades individually. Press the pillowcase against the top and bottom of the blade with your hands and then slide it out slowly, ensuring that all the dirt gets collected in the pillowcase. With this simple trick cleaning your ceiling fan won't be a tiring chore anymore.
- Get-Rid-of Hard Water Spots with a Slice of Lemon: If you reside in an area with a supply of hard water, mineral deposits on faucets and soap scum on shower head must be familiar. These hard water stains are hard to scrub away. The easiest way to clean these stains is by using a lemon. Rub a lemon slice on the bathroom fixtures where you see hard water stains, let it sit for 15 minutes and then rinse. Your faucets will shine again and smell lemony fresh, too! Alternatively, you can spray lemon juice on the build-up scale near valves and shower head and rinse it after 10 minutes.
- Clean the Couch/Sofa with Baking Soda: The couch in the center of your living room is always a favorite spot of all the family members – whether it is to unwind, cry, binge-watch a sitcom, or spend precious time with friends, but it is prone to be infested with bedbugs. To clean your couch, wipe the sofa with a clean, dry cloth. Next, sprinkle baking soda on the sofa in a generous amount and sit for at least 20 to 30 minutes. Later, use a vacuum cleaner with a brush attachment to clear the baking soda. Baking soda will remove the bad odors from the couch and break the stains, too.
- Use Salt and Lemon to Clean a Wooden Chopping Board: Although a wooden cutting board is sanitary and sturdy, it needs cleaning too. It may not seem dirty, but with its continuous usage, it will surely stink. If you are thinking of placing the board under a running tap, you have got it wrong! To sanitize your chopping board, first, wash it with water and soap. Then sprinkle some salt on it and spread it on the board. Then rub half a lemon on the board, squeezing it slowly. Leave it for an hour, then scrape off the salt. Lastly, use a wet sponge to clean it thoroughly.
- Use Old Newspaper to Get Rid of Smelly Shoes and Fridge: Using newspapers to dry shoes is an old trick; the paper can also get rid of bad odor from your refrigerator. If you haven't had time to clean your fridge for a while, it must be smelling, not lovely. To get-rid-of the smell, stuff wads of newspaper in the vegetable drawer and shelves of your fridge, and close the door. It will absorb the stinky smell, and later you can wipe the shelves with a mixture of water and vinegar. Newspapers can also be used to clean windows, mirrors, TV monitors, etc.
- Clean Your Garbage Disposals: whenever life gives you lemon, clean your garbage disposal with it. You don't need to make lemonade with lemons always; lemons can be put to other good uses, too! Taking out that garbage disposal from your house is an errand you hate doing, but you won't anymore if you try this simple trick! Cut a lemon into small pieces and put these pieces in ice tray molds. Later pour vinegar in each mold and place the tray in the freezer. Once the cubes are frozen, store them in a plastic bag. Throw a handful of these frozen cubes in the disposal every few days, and your trash won't stink.
