With a few simple hacks, you can keep your space clean and tidy without spending hours every week scrubbing away. Not only will your place look great, but you’ll also save time and money in the long run.
Keep Your Sinks Sparkling with Vinegar and Baking Soda
One of the easiest ways to keep your kitchen and bathroom sinks looking shiny and new is to use a mixture of vinegar and baking soda. Simply pour 1/2 cup of baking soda down the drain, followed by 1/2 cup of vinegar. Allow the mixture to sit for 15 minutes, then run hot water down the drain to flush it away. For an extra boost, sprinkle some salt down the drain before running the hot water. This hack works great on slow-moving or clogged drains!
Get Rid of Pet Hair with a Rubber Glove
If you have pets, chances are their hair ends up everywhere – on your clothes, in your furniture, and (ew) even in your food. To get rid of pet hair quickly and easily, put on a rubber glove and run your hand over any surface where hair has collected. The glove will act as a magnet, picking up all the pet hair in its path. When you’re done, simply peel off the glove and throw the hair away. No more vacuum required!
Unclog Your Showerhead with Vinegar
If you’ve noticed that your showerhead is starting to spray water in different directions or that the pressure isn’t what it used to be, it’s probably time to give it a good cleaning. Over time, mineral deposits can build up inside the showerhead and cause these problems.
Luckily, it’s easy to fix! Just remove the showerhead from the pipe and soak it overnight in a vinegar solution (1 part vinegar to 2 parts water). In the morning, brush away any remaining deposits with an old toothbrush and reattach the showerhead. The water should flow freely again – not to mention, to clean the bathroom will decrease the risk of illness.
Deodorise Your Carpets with Baking Soda
Baking soda isn’t just for baking – it also does a great job at freshening up carpets and rugs! If your carpets are starting to smell musty or stale, sprinkle some baking soda over them and let it sit for 30 minutes before vacuuming it up. You can also add a few drops of essential oil to the baking soda for a refreshing scent boost!
