Lifestyle | By Cole Damon | March 28, 2018

Regardless of the background and culture we come from, all of us can vehemently agree that cleaning isn't something that we really like to do. Unless you're Danny Tanner from Full House, then you probably don't like cleaning. And let's face it, Danny Tanner was most likely a serial killer.

Statistics suggest that you're probably neither Danny Tanner nor a serial killer, which means you're like me and you hate cleaning. I'll give myself food poisoning just to avoid cleaning the house. That is unless I knew about some hacks to make the job easier. That's where the internet comes in.

People all over the internet have come together to help each other face off against the injustice of having to clean. If the thought of scrubbing your toilet makes you want to hide under your sofa, these effortless cleaning hacks are for you. You will not believe what you can use to clean your toilet!

Use Shower Cleaner After You Take a Shower

Your shower is one part of the house that you really do despise cleaning. It really does suck to get on your knees and palms and to bend down in your shower to get the job done. This can be a real hassle and it is in fact necessary that you think of an alternative to this. No one likes being on their knees inside the shower, so we have the perfect idea here.

The perfect idea for cleaning your shower is to just spray a shower cleaner on different parts of the area after you are done with a bath or a shower. Make sure to spray it just after you are done, because the product will then do its work itself with the water that is present. The cleaner can clear away soap and grime so that you don't have to do the dirty work later.

Clean Your Coffee Pot With Vinegar

Ask anyone following a routine about what they do first thing in the morning, and they would all agree that drinking coffee is often the first thing they do in the morning. Now, considering that you drink coffee almost on a regular basis, the machine you have with you may be attracting a lot of dirt and may require cleaning over time.

You may also start seeing a skunky edge to the morning beverage and your coffee addiction may take a severe hit. These are all signs of the inside of your coffee machine being filthy, which is why you need to get it cleaned by applying vinegar. Vinegar works really well inside a coffee machine and can clear the pot from all the dirt that has accumulated inside it over a period of time.

Clean Your Couch With Baking Soda

The couch is the first thing that anyone walking into your house sees. They aren't concerned about anything besides how stinky or smelly your couch is. Anyone who has had a couch would agree that couches do tend to gather a lot of stains over time, and they usually have no clue regarding how to clear away these stains. The stains and the stink make for ugly viewing and smelling, which is why homeowners risk feeling embarrassed if the stains aren't removed.

One thing that can be done in this regard is to have your couch cleared of all the mess and the stains on it through the use of baking soda. Scrubbing and watering your couch will end up ruining your fabric, which is why we advise that you use baking soda. Baking soda will clear the area and make your couch sparkle like before.

Clean Upholstery Stains With Shaving Cream

Upholstery stains as we all would agree are really a pain in the backside. These stains require a lot of cleaning to remove and it is imperative that you give all you can to ensure that these stains are removed over the passage of time. Now, we don't say that upholstery stains are permanent, but if you don't use the correct methods, you are pretty much stuck with them for life.

The best method to get your upholstery stains removed is to use some shaving cream on the upholstery in your home. Rub the cream on the stain that you have on hand and wait for at least half an hour to see how the stain absorbs the cream. Once the requisite period has passed, just blot the cream dry with a clean cloth and the stain will be gone.

Clean Window Blinds With Vinegar and Water

Window blinds really do give us a lot of service when it comes to life inside the home. Not only do they safeguard us from the forces of weather, but they also ensure that we are able to create our very own sanctuary inside the comforts of our home. This sanctuary is ours to be had and window blinds add all they can to ensure that we enjoy the warmth.

Now, like every other part of the house, window blinds also require cleaning, which is why you should follow this hack to save time and have good clean blinds on your hands. Make a solution of half vinegar and half water and clean each and every slat by wearing an old sock on your hands and dipping it into the solution. This will clear you of all the stains on your blinds.

Cleaning Your Blender With Soap and Water

Cleaning a blender isn't a really easy task. Shoving your hands inside and ensuring that you don't get cut from the blade inside requires a lot of precision and can only be achieved if you start thinking smart. Anyone who has ever cleaned a blender before would agree that the correct way lies in letting the blender do the work itself, rather than you doing the tedious scrubbing.

All you need to do here is to fill your blender with warm water. When you have filled the blender with warm water, wait for a couple of minutes before adding two to three drops of dish soap. Once the mixture is created, you can turn the blender on and can have the device rev up, while cleaning the mixture inside it as well. This will do the job for you.

Freshening Up Your Keyboard With a Toothbrush

Freshening up your keyboard isn't something that a lot of people can handle. Cleaning up your keyboard from all the debris and dust that has accumulated inside it over the passage of time requires a lot of precision and the ability to think smart. Keyboards are often one of the most germ-laden places at your workplace and home, which is why you are better off cleaning them.

Just like a couple of places above you are also required to make a water and vinegar solution over here! When the half water, half vinegar solution is made, just dip an old toothbrush in it and then rub it on to the keyboard. Make sure to address all crevices and other details to ensure that no dirt has been left on the appliance. This would help you clean your keyboard for good.

Clean Your Sponge In Microwave

All of us have this predetermined perception about sponges that they are perfectly fine during all times of their life, to clean our dishes with. These sponges require a lot of precision and considering that they are in direct contact with your dishes, it is necessary that you take the required precaution.

Since sponges are required for cleaning away the mess from dishes, they themselves can serve to be breeding grounds for a lot of mold and bacteria. This is not something you would like on your sponge, which is why cleaning them up is the best way forward. Just pop the sponge into a microwave for half an hour and you will see all the bacteria go away. Just pull it out after a couple of minutes to ensure that you don't catch it when it is hot.

Soak Hard Water Spots With Vinegar

Hard water spots on any accessory can be hard to clean. You may waste time rubbing your sponge on them all day long, and you wouldn't be able to clean the mess from them. The best way to go about this cleaning process is to think smart and follow the method that we will be mentioning below.

The hard water spots on your glasses and other accessories are left over from minerals presents in water, which is why you need to think of something clever to get rid of these spots. One item that can really do wonder on these stains is vinegar. Vinegar is known for having properties that negate such spots, which is why you can spray a mixture of water and vinegar on the hard water spot to make it go away. Your glasses will soon be back to being spick and span.

Clean Your Microwave With Vinegar and Water

All of us have a fair idea of how dirty our microwave looks, but there is nothing that we do to get the stains cleared from within the microwave. From exploded eggs, to splattered tomato sauces and bubbled over butter, our microwaves are host to all sorts of food stains. These food stains don't go away easily, until you try the right hack.

Water and Vinegar will be your friends in this hack as well, as you need to pour equal amounts of them in a spray bottle and then spray the mixture at the surface of the microwave oven. When you are done spraying the mixture, keep your microwave on high for roughly 10 minutes and wait for the inside to cool down. Open the microwave and rub a clean cloth to get the work done for you.

Clean Grease Stains With Alcohol and Salt

Grease stains are almost impossible to remove from surfaces, including carpets and table. While the first line of precaution would be to keep your home accessories and your carpets save from any such stains, there isn't a lot that can be done in this regard in the case of an incident. When the deed has been committed, there is no need for ruing the carpet, but you should instead get to work.

What you need to do is to create a mixture of alcohol and salt. There should be four parts of alcohol for every one part of salt, so follow the measurement while making the mixture. Once the mixture is created, rub it on the stain and vacuum away the particles of salt once the stain has been removed. This method almost always works for us.

Clean Burnt Pan With Vinegar and Baking Soda

Having a burnt pan on your hands isn't really the most cheerful situation to be in. It really can suck to have a burnt pan on your hands and it may take you a lot of time for you to get over the heartbreak of burning your favorite pan. Now, there is no need to go all emotional over here, since you can remove the burns on your pan without a hassle.

The right way to go about here is to have your pan cleaned with a mixture of water, vinegar and baking soda. All these components will merge together to form the right mixture for you to take away the burn from the pan. This mixture can be sprayed on the pan and then you can rub your sponge or scrub the area to get the desired result. Have your favorite pan back in the condition that you prefer.

Pick Up Broken Glass With a Slice of Bread

Picking small pieces of glass with your bare hands is a really bad idea. You wouldn't want to be taking the risk of having your hands cut because you didn't take the necessary precaution. Now, we are not saying that you should just let the glass lie around as it is in the open, but you should use your brains to come up with something better.

A better hack for picking up broken glass is to grab a slice of bread with you. Once you have the slice of bread, just put it on the affected area and see how well the moisture in it grabs hold of the shards of glass on the floor. This is an accident proof method, so you can be sure of the fact that you will not be experiencing any accident here.

Cleaning Tiled Floors With Light Detergent

Tile grime is literally the most unaesthetic thing in the world. Tile grime is literally like the last thing you want to see in a house when you walk inside. If you do end up seeing tile grime on the floor, you soon start judging the person for not taking care of their house and having a deplorable attitude to life. Someone who bears with tile grime is really not the person you want around you.

So, the hack to cleaning tile grime lies is vacuuming the area with the grime on it and then rubbing some light detergent through the use of a rag. The detergent will do a good job in clearing the grime away and will make your tiles exude the same sparkle that you would expect from them. This method has been tested, so you can try it without a hassle.

Cleaning Sneakers With Toothpaste

Cleaning sneakers is one thing that all of us always neglect, but should take proper care for. Our sneakers exude a lot of things about our personalities, so we should try our best to ensure that our sneakers are always looking spick and span. There is no room for error when it comes to sneakers, so you should always assure that your sneakers are clean.

One way that you can implement to clean your sneakers is to use toothpaste on them. Toothpaste goes perfectly well on sneakers and will save you from a lot of embarrassment that comes with worn out and dirty sneakers. No one wants to go through this embarrassment, which is why you need to grab hold of a toothbrush and toothpaste to get the job done in the most effective manner.

Cleaning White Pillows

Ask anyone you want to, and they would agree that no one really wants nasty looking yellow pillows inside their home. These yellow pillows are an indication of a deplorable attitude towards life and exude all the vibes that you don't want to exude through your house. The best way to have your pillows cleaned is to follow the method we have here.

All you need to do here to ensure that you don't have yellow pillows is to put the pillows inside the washer with a hot water delicate setting on. Just pour a small amount of detergent with some bleach as well to get the washer rolling. When you take your pillows out, they would be clear white and all the yellow you despised would be nowhere to be seen on their exterior.

Dust Your House With Dryer Sheets

Dusting is one cleaning job within the house that all of us despise a lot. No one really wants to indulge in the job and we are all hell bent on ensuring that we stay safe from the impact. What's more, the fact that you can often end up being messy makes the job even more deplorable. However, if you do tend to get on the job, there are some options that you can explore.

One option that we find to be really effective is that of using drying sheets on the surfaces. Using drying sheets on surfaces can be great during dusting, as they not only absorb all the dust, but also ensure that you are not inhaling any of it. This is exactly what we wanted to experience and the revolution in dusting is definitely upon us.

Getting Crayon Marks Off Your Walls

Kids tend to be really creative inside the home when they are young. Their creativity can be seen through a lot of ways, but the most deplorable show of creativity is when you see them draw on the wall with crayons. This isn't on at all cost, because cleaning crayons from the walls is an extensive task that requires a lot of cleaning.

So, instead of giving your kids an earful when this happens, you should be more concerned about clearing the walls. The walls ain't going to clean themselves, so all you need to do is to get some toothpaste on you. The toothpaste can be used to rub on the affected area and you will be fine later on. Just rub the toothpaste and see as it does its magic on the walls.

Oven Cleaning With Aluminum Foil

Oven cleaning is one of the most arduous tasks within your home. Those of us who still follow traditional methods of oven cleaning will agree that the method really isn't the safest one. Ovens tend to give away a lot of toxic fumes when you clean them through the traditional methods and often times you are even required to leave the home to ensure that you are safe.

Now, oven cleaning has gotten easier, but it is still not the most loved house chore. However, one thing that you can do to ensure that you don't feel the need for oven cleaning is to have a sheet of foil placed right at the bottom of your oven. This sheet will collect all the stains and then you can easily take it off once you are done.

Clean Your Dishwasher With Gatorade

The citric acid in these powders will do the job to clear away the dirt from the inside of the dishwasher.

Removing Scratches

Maintaining crockery for a sufficient amount of time is a hard task. As the time passes by, your crockery may soon see a buildup of scratches on its surface. Not only does the crockery look plain ugly when it has so many scratches on it, but there also comes a time when you are just ashamed of serving anyone through this ugly crockery.

One hack that you can implement to save yourself from this massive embarrassment is to use a liquid cleaner and some hard work.

Once you have poured a sufficient amount, start rubbing a clean cloth to get rid of the scratches that have left you scratching your head. This will get the job done for you in time.

Clean Washing Machine With Vinegar and Warm Water

Just because washing machines wash away dirt and other stains from your clothes doesn't mean that you shouldn't be paying the requisite attention to them. Washing machines also require extensive attention over time and you should be paying that attention. We have seen a lot of homeowners neglect taking care of their washing machines and then eventually paying the price through dirty clothes. This can be a real embarrassment and you seriously wouldn't like going through it.

Considering that you now know the importance of cleaning a washing machine, you should get to the job soon.

The hack to clearing this space and making the arrangement look aesthetic lies in evaluating your options and hanging a rod within the cabinet.

Now, to be honest showerheads tend to lose their spark over time and we feel that they aren't giving the performance that we expect out of them anymore. This can be a major sign of worry.

However, the water flow loses its spark because of the fact that the showerhead now has particles stuck inside it.

The best way to go about things here is to soak the showerhead in a plastic wrap of distilled vinegar.
