Cleaning is a pain. From vomit stains and cat urine to dust and clogged sinks it seems like not a day goes by that something doesn’t require a good scrubbing. Don’t worry though, we’re here to change your life. These are 25 cleaning hacks that you will wish you knew about sooner!
Grapefruit + Salt = Clean Bathtub
Next time you want to clean away the grime in your shower/bathtub just cut a grapefruit in half and sprinkle some salt on it. Get your tub a little wet and pour a bit of salt in it as well. Scrub using the grapefruit halves and rinse for clean citrusy freshness!
To polish up your silverware (real silver…not fake!), take some tin foil and line a large pan. Fill it with hot water, 1/2 cup of salt, and 1/2 cup of baking soda. Give it 30 minutes and then dry of your dishes. Look how shiny!
After cooking, unplug your grill and place some damp towels over it. Close the lid and let the remaining heat steam clean the surface!
Sanitize Your Sponge
Although buying new sponges won’t normally bust your budget, if you don’t have time to run to the store just toss your sponge in the microwave for a couple of minutes. When it comes out 99% of the germs will be dead.
Get Rid Of Stains On Your Glass Bakeware
