Top 6 Cleaning Tricks Experts Don’t Usually Tell You


Did you know that the cleanliness of your home or apartment has a significant psychological impact? Clutter can cause melancholy, lower productivity, less focus, and a lack of capacity to pay attention.

In this blog post, we’ll go over a few lesser-known cleaning tricks to make sure your home always looks tidy.

When You Wake Up, Make Your Bed

Make it a rule that each morning, everyone must make their beds. Completing it will make you feel accomplished, even if you or your family members are working on or close to your beds. 

Additionally, it will aid in switching your brain from sleep mode to work mode, making you feel better prepared to face the day.

Use Lemons or Products with a Lemon Scent

Ever notice how many cleaning products either smell like lemons or contain lemon? This is because the acidic nature of lemon is effective in cleaning and removing stains. 

For instance, lemon can be used to clean a soiled microwave. Place a mug of water and some freshly squeezed lemon juice in the microwave and cook for three to five minutes. You can use a cloth to clean off the microwave and remove all the grime after the moisture helps to loosen it. 

Use an Electric Brush to Clean Tough to Reach Places 

Do you struggle to keep your kitchen, floor, bathroom, or bathtub clean? If so, you can purchase electric brushes to remove the dirt instead of using your hands to scrape it off.

In the area you want to clean, spray cleaner. Once the electric brush is activated, go over the area you wish to polish with it. If dirt or mold is caught between your tiles, all you need to do is hold the electric brush over it for a short time, and it will immediately be buffed away.

Vacuum in Rows

Don’t aimlessly clean your floor. Instead, vacuum in one area at a time. It can be challenging to determine what needs vacuuming and where you’ve already vacuumed. Going in rows makes the room look fantastic afterward and can help you see where you’ve gone.

Clean with a Swiffer and an Old Sock

Grab a clean, old sock and a Swiffer. Put the used sock directly on the Swiffer. Your preferred window cleaner should be sprayed on the window before being cleaned. Spray on the sock itself if you can’t get to the window to do so.

Dust Using Dryer Sheets

Dryer sheets are designed to lessen static cling, but they can also be used to dust, particularly in hard-to-reach places. This advice is also handy for electronics. 

Use the dryer sheet to dust your blinds or other surfaces. To dust areas of your home that are difficult for you to reach but still require dusting, you can also try the Swiffer trick using a dryer sheet.

You’ll be astounded at how effortlessly the dust adheres to the dryer sheet and how clean and fresh your home is as a result.
