It’s almost spring and I don’t know about you but my home could sure use a refresh. I came up with this post by doing this research for my own personal use. I came across so many great cleaning tips and tricks that I just had to share! The best part is that they’re all super easy, require on-hand ingredients/tools, and they won’t take much time at all! I love a clean space but I like to get my cleaning done as quickly as possible!
PS, this post was only supposed to be 10 cleaning hacks but I just found so many great ones that I had to increase it to 13!
Clean Oven Glass
See her helpful tip here!
Just like the article author, I didn’t even realize how dirty my oven glass was because it’s always covered with pretty dish towels. Well, after coming across this post and giving my oven door an inspection… Let’s just say that I’m glad to have her tip.
Lavender Laundry Sponges
See this awesome hack here.
This is my favorite hack of the whole post! I don’t even know if it technically matches the title of this post but I loved it so much that I had to include it. This hack will save you a bunch of money, it looks cute, and smells amazing! Plus, she’s even thrown in a beautiful printable for us.
How to Clean Window Blinds
Get this great tip here.
Ugh! Cleaning the blinds was always such an annoyingly tedious task because of all the slats. My home isn’t even that big so I can’t imagine what this is like for those with bigger homes. Fear blind cleaning no more for this tip is going to cut down your blind cleaning time by way more than half!
How to Clean a Glass Cooktop
Get this life-saving tip here.
I have a love/hate relationship with my glass cooktop because though I really do love it, the darn thing never actually looks clean and shiny! I’ve tried all sorts of cleaners but nothing has ever worked as well as this. The best part? I already had everything I needed on hand!
DIY Garbage Disposal Cleaning Cubes
This brilliant tip can be found here.
I can’t even handle how easy and practical this tip is. I always have leftover citrus rinds that I’m excited to have a purpose for (I love being able to re-purpose anything) and I feel like my garbage disposal could always use some freshening up. Now, all I have to do is pop one of these bad boys in and I’m good to go!
Microwave Your Sponges
Find this tip and more here.
This is brilliant! So often I catch myself thinking, “Hmmm, this sponge could be a little fresher” but I’m not yet ready to throw it out. Now, I have a perfect solution! I’m going to start doing this daily. Germs don’t stand a chance against me and my kitchen!
Scented Cleaning Vinegar
Find this gem of a tip here.
I know I said that the DIY fabric softener sponges were my favorite but I forgot about this one. I love this so much because I know how great vinegar is for cleaning but I just can’t stand the smell (and my guy can stand it even less). Now we can get the amazing cleaning (and money saving!) benefits of using vinegar without the nasty smell. The possibilities are endless! I’ve seriously never been so excited to clean.
How to Clean Window Tracks
Get this genius method here.
Thank goodness I came across this post. Cleaning tracks is so freaking annoying because even if you get them clean, it’s nearly impossible to get all the dirty water/solution out. It’s like you’re just dislodging the dirt but can never get it all OUT until now!
Deep-Clean You Natural-Fabric Couch
Get the tip here.
I love our couch. It’s so comfy and is the homiest spot of our whole home. It’s always there for me when I need to read a book, get some work done, watch a movie, cuddle with my dogs and/or my guy, or relax after a hard workout. Especially because we have dogs (and because I sometimes need 5 mins on the couch post-run before I have enough strength again to make it into the shower), our couch needs a regular refresh. This method is so easy and effective!
How to Freshen Your Towels
Get her tip here.
I’m not saying our towels stink because we do always let them dry completely before they make it into the hamper (bonus tip for you there!) but if I can make them even a bit fresher, whiter, and fluffier, I will! Mallory’s tips definitely will make a difference in freshening up your towels!
How to Clean Your Microwave
Find this great tip here.
I love this tip! I always cleaned my microwave by only using lemon. By adding vinegar, it takes the ease of cleaning to another level! Can I get a WOOHOO for less elbow grease?!
Get Rid of Mold
Get the tip here.
I don’t have kids but me and my guy are guilty of leaving water bottles too long without cleaning. I’m so glad to have come across this tip to get them good as new again!
Bonus tip: How to Clean Your Walls
This is an amazing way to get the most forgotten surfaces of our homes clean–the walls! I don’t know about you but I never think to clean my walls because it’s such a daunting task until I have to. And by “have to” I mean… HAVE to. This tip makes it way easier and quicker!
