10 Spring cleaning tips
How to remove water from the sink and faucet
If you want your sink and faucet to shine this year then take a lemon half and rub it all over the water stains. The citric acid helps make removing hard water much easier and without using harsh chemicals. You’d be surprised how many Green Cleaning solutions are available, you can read more about them here.
Microwave cleaning made easy
Don’t discard those used lemon halves quite yet, use them on your microwave to make cleaning it super easy. You can also use new lemons if you like, just squeeze some juice into a half cup of water along with the rinds. Next, Microwave the mix for 3-5 minutes without opening the door. The trapped steam and citric acid will make wiping out all those crusty old food remnants a breeze.
Shower head solution
If you’re looking for a natural way to clean your shower head then consider using white vinegar. This natural and flexible product is actually a super powerful cleaning agent that can help dissolve the mineral deposits that build up on your showerheads. Just fill a plastic bag with white vinegar, secure it over the showerhead with a rubber band and leave it overnight. Next day you should be able to run your shower to blow out the dissolved deposits and improve the showerhead performance.
Stainless steel sink cleaning
For a natural heavy-duty cleaning alternative for your stainless steel sink, you should consider using baking soda. Just wet your sink with some water, sprinkle with baking soda, then scrub it with a sponge!
Streak free window cleaning with newspapaers
To get flawless window wiping results simply mix ¼ cup of white vinegar, 2 cups of water and 2 teaspoons of liquid soap into a spray bottle. Spray the solution on the glass then wipe it down with a newspaper for streak-free windows or mirrors.
Clean burnt stovetop burners with ease
Place a wet dryer sheet on your burnt stove top for 15 minutes or more to soak into the caked on food leftovers. After a while it becomes as easy as wiping off with a paper towel.
Onion grill cleaning hack
If your grill is still covered with leftovers from last summer then heat it up and spray some white vinegar onto them. Next, scrub the area with an onion, seriously! We know it sounds wierd but the acid in the onion will easily remove any leftover food on the grates.
Coffee filters for fingerprints
If your TV or other delicate products and places in your home constantly have fingerprints on them but you’re afraid of using something too rough then you can use a coffee filter. The fibers in the filter are gentle and make wiping away fingerprints super simple.
Spring organization trick
If you’re running out of room storing old clothes from winter or even if you unpacked your old spring and summer clothes you can save a bunch of space by stacking them vertically
Easy hair hair hack
Use a rubber squeegee to easily clean up excess pet hair as the rubber can easily grips and removes fur from your home. Finish by running the vacuum to catch any hair still on the surface.
