DIY Cleaning Hacks You May Not Have Known About- Part 1

Have you ever had the urge or need to clean something in your home but may not have had the necessary tools or cleaner on hand? We’ve compiled a list of some of our favorite DIY hacks that can help you become more efficient by using things that may already be right at home. Save time, money, and some sanity!

Buff/scrub surfaces with olive oil

Olive oil has many nutritional benefits, but it also can be used as a cleaner. According to Mat Franken, CEO of Aunt Fannie’s, olive oil is a great opinion for stainless steel, such as your appliances, pots and pans.

Remove stains with alcohol

Clear vodka, rubbing alcohol, and even white wine can be used to clean stains. Many experts believe this method is more efficient than any over the counter product. Simple blot the stain, and then pour your clear alcohol onto the stain.

Eliminate water stains with shaving cream

While shaving cream has a clear purpose, it also can serve as a cleaner for water stains on your shower glass. Simply apply the shaving cream and let it sit for 15 minutes before wiping it off.

Baking soda and vinegar can clean your tub and toilet

Mix one cup vinegar, half a cup of baking soda with hot water and pour into the tub and allow it to sit for five minutes. Fill the tub with hot water until it’s about 1/4th of the way filled, and let it sit for five more minutes. Drain the solution and rinse the tub thoroughly.

Baking soda can also clean your stove

To clean your stove using baking soda, simply pour it on the stove, sprinkle with water, let it sit for one hour and then wipe it down.

Rubber gloves can remove pet hair

We know, this one surprised us too. Did you know that you can use rubber gloves to clean up pet hair your vacuum or broom may have missed? Simply slide them on and rub down any areas that need extra cleaning. When rubber is pushed against fabric, it can generate elasticity to gether remaining pet hair.
