Ways to Clean Your House in Just a Few Minutes

Household chores can last all day long. You clean something and suddenly notice dirt somewhere else. To waste less energy, you can use these tips to save your nerves, time, and still make your house clean.

Oil copes well with grease

This blog contains good information on how to get rid of grease in the kitchen. It may sound strange, but vegetable oil deals with grease really easy. Just put some drops of oil onto a paper towel and wipe the oven. The surface will become clean very fast.


Polish everything to make surfaces shine

To make all chrome-plated surfaces shine, wipe them with a towel that has a couple of drops of baby oil.


Clean an iron

Salt can help you in this situation. Pour salt on a paper towel, let the iron heat up, and run the iron over the salt.


Use a broom so you don’t have to bend over

This blog gives us ideas on effective was to clean the bathtub. You can use a broom instead of an ordinary brush. Apply some cleaning agent onto the surface and wait a couple of minutes. This method is very useful for elderly people who can’t work in a bent position.


Cleaning products for the toilet

To save some time, apply a cleaning agent onto the surface before you scrub and use a toilet brush to remove all dirt after the cleaning agent has had time to work.


Add some softener

Before you wash the floor, add some fabric softener into the water so your floor stays clean for a longer period of time.


Coffee filters fight dust

Coffee filters fight well against dust on laptop and computer screens. They wipe all dirt and won’t scratch your screens or furniture. 


Use a brush

To remove dirt from small items, you can use a paint brush so you don’t have to waste time cleaning each detail.


A newspaper inside a bin

Put a newspaper in your garbage bag, it’ll absorb all liquid, and your garbage can will remain dry.


Socks instead of floor rags

Terry cloth socks will pick up dirt very well: just slide one sock over the base of your mop, wipe the floor, and wash the sock in the washing machine. 


Don’t make your bed

Good news! It’s better to not make your bed: it’s known that a wet bed covered with a blanket is a great environment for mites. Don’t make your bed if you don’t want to cause allergies.


Don’t forget about furniture polish

Many people consider this item useless, but they’re mistaken. The polish prevents dust from settling on surfaces and allows us to do the house cleaning less often.


Wrap refrigerator shelves with plastic wrap

If you cover the shelves with plastic wrap, you can avoid cleaning the fridge. You’ll just need to change the wrap from time to time.


Don’t leave wet bathroom walls

After taking a shower, remove all water from the walls with a squeegee. Thanks to this tip, you won’t need to waste your time cleaning away dried soap scum.


Attach a brush to a drill

This trick will help you clean even the dirtiest surfaces. You’ll save your energy and time and your house will shine and sparkle.


Empty the Dish Rack

The drying rack beside our sink ends up being a catch-all for everything that touches the sink or emerges from the dishwasher still wet. The problem is, when your dish rack is overflowing, the kitchen looks infinitely more messy and disorganized, and that might just stress you out or make you feel like your home isn’t ready for guests. It might be a daily chore, but you can fit it in with five quick minutes.


Refresh the Garbage Disposal

Let your disposal devour a citrus rind – lemon, lime, orange – to immediately infuse a clean scent in the air and help to agitate and fight build-up that accumulates below your drain. Bonus points if you freeze pieces of rind with water in ice cube trays. It’s nice to always have things like this on hand.


Dry Mop

Five minutes isn’t quite enough time to wet mop, but if you have a handy microfiber dry mop, you can sweep over hard-floor surfaces in a snap. Zoom, zip – we love our 24” wide mop head that glides across the floor easily, collecting all of the pet fur and dirt in its path.


Cleaning the Bath Fan

Household dust, moisture and humidity combine to cake bathroom exhaust fans with debris. Often located on the ceiling, you may not notice it’s even dirty. Luckily, bath fan grills are easy to clean. Grab the edge of the cover and pull down. Squeeze the springs to release them from the slots and remove the cover.
