One of the hardest things to do is to clean your house because it is such a demanding chore that you should constantly do if you don’t want to up living in a homemade junkyard. However, there are relatively easy spots to clean and really tough ones to clean. But in this article, we ware going to show you 8 cleaning tips for the hardest spots to clean at home
1. Smelly Dishwasher
Dishwashers if not cleaned for a long period of time will develop a nasty smell that can be hard to get rid of. But fear not, because you can use your dishwasher’s safe bowl to solve this problem. Simply fill the bowl with white vinegar, or cut a lemon in half and place it in the bowl, then fill the bowl with water until it covers the lemon. If there’s still bad smell, use baking soda to clean the walls and run a washing cycle with the bowl.
To clean your baseboards, use dryer sheets to quickly wipe away the dust that got built up over time. This way you will clean the baseboards and you will keep them clean for a long period of time.
3. Microfiber Furniture
Everyone loves microfiber furniture, but not everyone loves cleaning them because they had to clean. Simply grab a carpet cleaner and spray it on your furniture, let it sit for a while until there’s no more foam build-up. Now, grab your scrub brush and start scrubbing your cushions in a circular motion. When the foam starts building up on your brush, use a paper towel to wipe it off, and allow your furniture to dry for a whole night, the results are going to surprise you.
4. Ceiling Fan
Ceiling fans build up dust very fast, but you can use vacuum attachments to clear things up. Grab a pillowcase and slide it around the fan’s blade and close the open end and the blade’s blade, then slide off the pillowcase and you will find all of the dust inside it.
5. Window Tracks
If you have small vacuum cleaner attachments, then you can use them to clean window tracks. If you don’t have them, make a custom one by attaching an empty toilet paper tube to the hose and just like that, you have a DIY attachment.
If there are dirty parts that refuse to get cleaned up, sprinkle baking soda on the tracks and pour white vinegar on top of it until it starts bubbling up. Let it sit for about 10 minutes, then use a toothbrush to scrub it and a cloth to wipe it clean.
6. Air Vents
Air vents are one of those things that you keep cleaning and they never look clean. You can solve this by getting all of the left-behind dirt and dust removed using a rag and a butter knife.
7. Under the Toilet Tank
Cleaning under the toilet tank is one of the hardest things to do because not everyone knows this method. Simply cover the floor that surrounds the toilet with towels, and make sure that the sides and the rear areas are properly covered, then grab a cup and a bucket filled with hot soapy water. Start dumping the soapy water on the back of your toilet bowl using the cup to make sure that the water reaches under the tank. When a couple of cups flush down the tank, use paper towels to dry it and you are good to go.
Mix Dawn dish soap with hydrogen peroxide and baking soda, then pour the blend in a bowl and start wiping the grout and let it sit for 10 minutes before scrubbing away the grime with a toothbrush.
