8 Cleaning Tools That Save Your Time

8 Cleaning Tools That Save Your Time

Magic Erasers, Windex, toothbrushes, lint rollers, and more. While these cleaning tools have their own specific uses, you’ll be surprised to learn about some hidden uses. These tools can help you not only save time, but also save money on other unnecessary tools. Here’s a list of the ten best cleaning tools that will save your time this summer to have fun with your family.

  1. Magic Erasers
    • Cut off a piece and leave it in the toilet to remove stains
       
  2. Lint Rollers
    • Use lint rollers to clean curtains, lampshades, bed covers, pillows, or other pieces of furniture covered in pet hair or dirt.
       
  3. Baking Soda
    • Use as a stain remover by mixing a tablespoon each of baking soda, dishwashing detergent, and hydrogen peroxide.
    • Place a box of baking soda in your fridge to get rid of stinky scents.
       
  4. Scrub Sponges
    • Use a sponge with soap and water to clean door tracks.
    • Grills can became very messy after a lot of summer use. Simply use the scrubbing side of the sponge on stains and grease, the sponge side on dirt, and then rinse the area with water.
       
  5. Vacuum
    • Soak a cotton ball in an essential oil and place it inside the vacuum cleaner bag. The scent will spread in the house as you vacuum.
    • Do you have carpet dents from moving furniture? Place ice cubes on the marks until they melt and then vacuum over the wet area.  
       
  6. Toothbrush
    • Fridges can be especially difficult to clean. Use an old, unused toothbrush to clean the shelves, nooks, and hard-to-reach dusty areas inside your fridge.
    • After using a cheese grater, brush it down before washing it in order to remove food clogs.
       
  7. Broom
    • Are your shower walls dirty? Spray a cleaner on the walls, use a soft bristled broom to scrub them, and then take off the cleaner with a towel.
       
  8. Windex
    • Use Windex as a stain remover by spraying Windex on any stain, wait 15 minutes, and then wash the Windex off.
    • Kids can bring in a lot of dirt, which then gets onto their toys. Use Windex to clean children’s toys and then wipe the toys dry.
    • When changing out the litter in your kitty litter box every two-four weeks, spray the empty box with Windex and then dry it with a towel.
