When it comes to cleaning, I consider myself an expert. I’m always searching for cleaning hacks to make cleaning and life easier. In this article, you’ll discover my favorite cleaning hacks I use daily. You’ll find them useful, affordable, and easy!
Cleaning Hacks That Make Life Easier
Below, you can find several cleaning hacks I use to keep my home and items organized and in good shape. While you’ll here, check out my other household hacks too. I’m sure you’ll find them highly beneficial! For example, how to keep your kitchen cabinets free from grease and grime. And how to clean your vacuum properly without spreading dust and debri.
1 – Clean Your Lampshade Quickly – Affordable Cleaning Hacks That Make Life Easier
Lampshades – we all have them. They are dirt magnets. I’ve tried so many ways to keep them clean and finally found an easy way. With one of my favorite lint rollers, of course! Once a week, grab that sucker and give your shades inside and out a clean sweep. It works like a charm, and it’s one of my favorite cleaning hacks.
2 – Keep Your Sheet Clean In-Between Washing
Sheets – keeping them clean in between changes can be a real pain – use the same lint roller and do a clean sweep of your sheets before making your bed. It keeps your sheets just as fresh as when you changed them! This hack is so awesome I have a post on it! This works GREAT for in-between washing, especially if your fur baby sleeps with you.
3. Keep Your Cleaning Products Close By
Isn’t it annoying to have to run for your cleaning products each time you need to do a cleanup? Well, fret no more! I’ve found an attractive and easy way to keep cleaning products close by in each bathroom for easy access. I have three bathrooms and one basket in each.
You can find a decorative storage basket for under $12 and keep your cleaning products where you need them. Of course, you can choose the color that works best with your decor. Now, I can spot clean easily and not have to run around searching for cleaning products. Oh! It’s a great place to store your TP as well :)
4. Light Switch Plates
Every home has them. If I asked you right now, you wouldn’t be able to tell me how many switch plates your house has. Yet, they are in every room, and we have to clean them. Well, I’ve found both a decorative and easy way to keep them clean. Decoupage! Yep.
Please look at this post I made on how to decorate your switch plates easily and, at the same time, how not to worry about dirt and grime showing up so easily on them anymore.
5. Computer Monitors – Keep Them Safe And Clean – Cleaning Hacks That Work!
Most folks think you can use Windex or even a spray designed to clean monitors. Monitor cleaners are very expensive and like Windex, they can leave terrible streaks behind and ruin your monitor over time.
Instead, all you need is a Microfiber Cleaning Cloth designed for your monitor. Over 80,000 Amazon shoppers agree and love them. Yep, dampen the cloth and clean your monitor. Additionally, be sure to wipe it dry with a dry microfiber cloth. Trust me; it’s the best way to keep your monitor clean and safe from the damage harsh chemicals can cause.
6. Less Hassle For Your Garbage Pails
This is not so much a cleaning hack as much as it is a convenient hack. I could never understand why everyone is not doing this! Instead of placing garbage bags into your pail one at a time, throw 10 of them on the bottom instead – this way, when you change the bag you don’t have to always go run and grab them individually.
I’ve even thrown in an entire roll, and wow – easy peasy changing plastic garbage bags! This is one of my favorite cleaning hacks, as it saves time and effort.
7. Keeping Your Makeup Clean
Cleaning your makeup and brushes can be a real PIA! It’s so important in preventing bacteria on both. Let’s face it, you use these items on your face so you should be extra careful on how to clean them.
