10 life hacks for “lazy” cleaning.
It turns out that you can do laundry without ironing, and the oven can be easily cleaned in half an hour. Our life hacks will be useful to everyone who does not like cleaning, but wants to live cleanly, informs Ukr.Media.
We tell you how to learn to clean so that you can forget about general cleaning forever.
Start cleaning from the top shelves
Always go down from ceiling to floor. Dust all surfaces, including table lamps and appliances. Replace the regular cloth with a microfiber cloth: it removes dust much more effectively and lasts much longer.
Wash the floor only after vacuuming
Otherwise, the dust will settle again. You can vacuum not only the floor, but also plinths, walls, upholstered furniture and even window sills. The main thing is to use special nozzles.
When cleaning the stove, mix water, detergent and soda
The resulting mixture will help clean the oven: apply it to the walls and leave for 15 minutes. And you can soak a burnt burner overnight in a cleaning agent containing ammonia: in the morning there will be no trace of scale.
Add apple cider vinegar to the water when you mop the floor
This is a great way to get rid of pet hair.
Use old plastic cards< /strong>
If cleaning products do not help, try scraping the dirt with a plastic such as a card. Then wipe the area with a damp rubber sponge to remove any streaks.
Dissolve some baking soda in warm water when washing dishes
So you will quickly get rid of stains. And to clean the kettle from scale, fill it with water, add a spoonful of citric acid and boil for five minutes.
Do not throw away the net, in which onions were sold
Wet it with water and wipe the surface of the stove – the scale will disappear instantly.
Add ammonia to the water when get ready to wash the windows
Mix ammonia and water in a ratio of 1:10 and wash the windows with a microfiber cloth – there will be no separation.
Use dishwasher tablets when washing
If bleach doesn't do the job, add it to hot water and mix it with washing powder and a crushed dishwasher tablet. Then soak the laundry – the result will not be long in coming.
Do not iron the laundry after washing
Shake it well and hang it to dry as flat as possible. When the sheets and comforters are dry, fold them neatly and put them in the closet. The laundry will flatten under its own weight.
