Do you want to make your life easier with your household chores? Here are 10 smart tips that will forever change the way you clean your floor:
FILL A BUCKET WITHOUT SWEATING
We would have liked to think about it sooner!
Instead of being sweaty trying to insert the bucket under the faucet and end up with a disaster on the floor, use a pool noodle to fill your bucket. Brilliant!
To facilitate the storage of your brooms and mops, add zip tie in the hole of the handle. So you can hang your items like this!
OPTIMIZE THE PERFORMANCE OF THE VACUUM CLEANER
We love this tip! For holes and crevices that can't be reached with the conventional vacuum nozzle, attach a cardboard roll to the end of the vacuum with adhesive tape. This thing is wonderful for the windowsills, the sofa and even the interior of the car. You won't be able to do without it!
GET OUR PRECIOUS JEWELRY BACK
This is nott stupid! You lost an earring on the floor and you can not find it? Tie a thick nylon pantyhose or stockings to the hole of the vacuum with elastic bands. Vacuum and then hop! You will find the lost earring!
NEUTRALIZE BAD ODORS
If your vacuum emits a bad smell, do like this lady and vacuum Downy unstopables beads or cinnamon powder. Your vacuum cleaner will produce a much more pleasant smell!
VERY EFFECTIVE TECHNIQUE TO ELIMINATE ANIMAL HAIR
A simple vacuuming is not enough to remove animal hair on sofas. To remove them effectively, wear rubber gloves and rub them on the fabric from top to bottom. You can also use a squeegee, it's magic to eliminate the hair of pets!
Don't spend your money on Swiffer disposable wipes. Use a fluffy sock that you will install on the Swiffer. Clean as usual. Put the sock on the machine from time to time.
For those who can't do without their wet-jet, save by making your own cleaning solution:
- Pour 4 cups hot water into a pitcher.
- Add 1 cup concentrated lemon juice
- Add 3 cups of white vinegar in the solution.
- Gradually, add 1/4 cup of dish soap.
- Stir and pour the mixture into a recycled container of wet-jet.
- Use this homemade solution as the commercial version.
BLACK TEA FOR THE FLOORS
Did you know that tea does wonders for varnished wood floors? Infuse a bag of black tea in a bucket filled with hot water. Mop the floor and let it air dry. Your hardwood floors will never have been so clean and shiny!
NO MORE DUST
It's not easy to dust when dust is flying in the wind as soon as you try to pick it up with the dustpan. To remedy this frustrating situation, put the dustpan under water before collecting dust. To throw the dirt in the garbage, just wipe it with a paper towel!
