quick cleaning tips

1. Clean the microwave  with a bowl of water and baking soda

We love this tip – the steam does most the cleaning for you!

2. Get rid of grimy shower door tracks

Shower doors are one of the hardest places to clean, but it’s nothing baking soda and vinegar can’t fix.

3. How to clean oven knobs

This tip is genius! Oven knobs can get covered in grime over time, removing them and cleaning all at once makes the job much easier.

4. Make your own garbage disposal cleaners

No need to spend money on store-bought garbage disposal tablets. Frozen vinegar cubes work like a charm.

5. Use kitchen tongs to clean window blinds

1. Get out the tongs. This might be one of the most brilliant cleaning hacks yet if your blinds are just dusty. Get out a pair of tongs and use a rubber band to attach a Swiffer or rag to each end. Then, just clamp the tongs over each section of blind and wipe clean. This is an easy way to grip each blind individually and so much easier than trying to get my hand in-between slats. I have vinyl mini blinds so I use a Swiffer. If you have larger blinds like faux wood blinds, you might be able to use thicker micro-fiber cloths (I found those made my tongs too big to get in-between the mini blind slats). #cleaning #clean #organize #cleaner #tips #howto #homes #homedecor #housekeeping #villa #livingroom #bedroom #housekeeper #hotelservice #hotels #firstclass #fivestars #housework #cleaningmode #cleaningday #cleaningtime #cleaningday #cleaninghouse #hotellife #abudhabi #uae

6. A Post-It note can clean your keyboard

Use the sticky side of a Post-It note to clean the nooks and crannies of your keyboard.

7. Dust window screens with a lint roller

This is a great idea for your spring cleaning tip. While you’re washing the windows, take a moment to clean the screens as well. Use a lint roller to easily remove cobwebs and dust.

8. Freshen your cutting boards with lemon and salt

You’ll be amazed at how much cleaner your cutting board is using this method. Lemon is a natural disinfectant and the salt scours the surface of the wood.

10. An onion can clean your grill

Who knew an onion could be used as a cleaning tool? It’s a great natural solution for a greasy grill.

11. Use a fluffy sock when you run out of Swiffer wipes

If you’ve run out of Swiffer refills, or you’re just trying to go green – use a fluffy sock instead!

12. Use baby oil to clean stainless steel

If you have kids and a stainless steel fridge, than you know about the constant struggle of little fingerprints. Try baby oil!
