Mop Using a Plastic Bottle
One of the most time-consuming tasks in the house is cleaning floors. Using a mop and bucket typically takes hours, but there are ways to speed up the process. On days when you don’t have access to water, or need a quick clean-up, try filling an empty plastic bottle with warm water and using it as a mop. The warm water makes the floor dry faster and you can use this hack instead of a mop and bucket if you’re in a hurry.
The Coffee Filters Work Wonders
There’s nothing worse than knowing you have a big load of coffee filters to clean but not knowing what to do with them. The good news is there are plenty of ways to put these coffee filters to work and make your life easier in the process.
From coffee filters that can be used as coasters to the infamous ice cube tray hack, here are five time-saving cleaning hacks for when you’re in need:
1. Coffee Filters as Coasters
Spray some water on a couple of coffee filters and place them on top of the cups. Coffee filters are absorbent and will keep the table dry while keeping your cups safe from stains and scratches.
2. Ice Cube Tray Hack
All it takes is a little spray paint, an ice cube tray, and some coffee filters for these DIY ice cubes! This hack will keep your drinks cold without watering down drinks or diluting flavors by adding too much water to them. You’ll also save money since you won’t be buying ice at the store all the time anymore.
Keep Your Kitchen Clean with a Simple Product
What’s the most important part of your kitchen, in your opinion? The sink, right? Well, if you’re looking for a quick way to keep your sink clean and odor-free, look no further than this super easy product.
You’ll need just a few things: baking soda, vinegar, and water.
First, fill up your sink with warm water and add 2 tablespoons of baking soda. Then add 2 cups of white vinegar (or any other type of vinegar). It’s time to scrub! Scrub your entire sink with soap and get out those nasty grills or stuck on food particles left by previous pots and pans. Rinse off the vinegar/soda mixture and voila! Your sink is clean as can be.
As an added bonus, this “cleaner” is also handy for tarnished silverware or cleaning up pet messes around the house!
Use the Gas Pedal to Clean Your Car
One of the best ways to save time and make sure your car stays spotless is to keep it clean while driving. How? Let’s say you’re in a hurry, and you know you won’t be able to get a thorough car wash anytime soon. Instead, just let your car idle for a few minutes as you drive by a gas station or stop at a traffic light. This will allow you to clean the underside of the hood, where the majority of dirt gathers.
This trick is also great if your car has been sitting in the sun all day and it needs some serious scrubbing! It could also come in handy when you’re trying to quickly clean up your feet after walking through dog poop on a walk. Just step on the gas pedal and maneuver across some gravel for a quick, dirty-foot-cleaning session on wheels!
Remove Stains from the Laundry.
Laundry is one of the most labor-intensive activities in your day, and it’s also one of the easiest to make more efficient. These five time-saving cleaning hacks can help you save both time and money:
1. Break a dryer sheet into sticky balls – Toss a dryer sheet into your laundry basket for added fragrance and softness. A dryer sheet can also be used to remove stains from delicate fabrics like lace or lingerie. But before you do that, break it up into small pieces first so that you can use it as an effective stain remover.
2. Use borax – Borax is known to help eliminate odors and get rid of stains on clothes without chemicals. Just add a tablespoon of borax to the wash cycle with the clothes you are trying to clean, then let the cycle finish its work before removing them from the washer/dryer. Borax is also sold at grocery stores so if you don’t have any at home, you’ll be able to buy some easily!
3. Use a scratch pad – If there are a few stubborn stains on your clothing that refuse to come out after normal washing, try adding a scratch pad like BacOut
