Have your house cleaning chores become even more mundane that usual?  Are there things in your home that just don’t ever seem to get clean no matter what you try?  We’ve put together a list of unique, yet effective house cleaning tips to help you mix things up a bit and help your home sparkle!

1. Use an Old Toothbrush for Those Hard to Reach Places

A toothbrush can easily be one of the most useful tools in your house cleaning toolkit. From pesky crevices on kitchen appliances, to sliding door tracks and faucet fixtures, using an old toothbrush to clean these areas will help to speed up your house cleaning, while also saving your knuckles in the process.

2. Use Dryer Sheets to Repel Dust

Ditch your can of dust-attracting spray and use a dryer sheet to dust your silk plants, blinds, ceiling fans, baseboards, and other dusty areas of your home. It leaves behind a trace of anti-static residue for a fresh scent and acts as an effective dust repellent. This cleaning method is just as effective with used dryer sheets, so there’s absolutely no waste.

3. Use Coffee Filters to Clean Glass

Using coffee filters to clean windows and mirrors is simple: Spray a glass surface with your favorite glass cleaner (we recommend Blue Juice!) and wipe away the liquid with a coffee filter, leaving a beautiful surface that is free from lint and streaks. We recommend using multiple filters to increase absorption, as well as buying extra-large filters (which were intended for use in restaurants), as these will cover more surface area.

4. Using Mayonnaise to Clean Porcelain Sinks and Tubs

Besides adding a little bit of zest to your turkey sandwich, mayonnaise can be quite a helpful cleaning tool. The condiment is particularly good at eliminating rust stains in porcelain tubs and sinks. Simply spread a dab of mayo over the stain, let it set, and wipe it dry to reveal the shiny surface underneath.

5. Remove Pet Hair From Carpet and Upholstery

Instead of struggling with a vacuum or lint rollers to remove pet hair, try a rubber broom! The bristles act like a magnet to attract, push, and pull pet hair that is stuck to the carpet and fabric fibers. The collected pile of pet hair can easily be picked up by hand and thrown in the trash and any debris left on the bristles can easily be rinsed away with water.
