There’s nothing better than a spotless house.
But, to tell the truth, for many of us Momshells cleaning our house is not on our list of our favorite ways to spend time.
Today, we here at Momshells would like to share some ingenious tricks to help you make your living area sparkling clean.
You’ll be amazed at how many household items double as cleaning products and home improvement tools.
1. Making bathroom faucets shiny
Simply saturate paper towels in vinegar and wrap them around the faucet for 30-40 minutes. This easy trick will help you keep your faucets extra shiny and free from water spots.
2. Making bathtubs white again
One great way to make your bathtub snow-white again is by placing bleach-soaked cotton balls along the edges of the tub where the mold is. Let them sit overnight, and enjoy the result in the morning.
3. Cleaning mirrors
Clean mirrors with a solution of half vinegar and half water. You can also add a few drops of your favorite essential oil to the mix if you’d prefer a scented cleaner.
4. Removing rust
To get rid of rust stains, cut a lemon in half, dip one half into some table salt, and rub it over the rusty area.
5. Reducing dust on air vents
Spending a little time waxing all of your vents after washing them is a great way to keep them clean for much longer.
6. Cleaning the walls and ceiling
Genius lies in simplicity: use your mop to clean the walls.
7. Making a bathtub sparkle
Fill a bathtub with hot water, and add a scoop of any oxygen bleach. Let this solution sit overnight, and your bathtub will look like new again.
8. Getting rid of soap scum on a glass shower door
Use a stiff brush and any window cleaner to clean the soap scum off a glass shower door.
9. Polishing bathroom faucets
To make your chrome faucets gleam and shine, try putting a dab of baby oil on a cotton ball and polishing the faucet with it. You’ll see your reflection smiling back at you.
10. Removing rust stains
A mixture of some cream of tartar and lemon juice does a great job in removing rust stains found on any surfaces. All you need to do is dip a lightly dampened toothbrush into the mixture and scrub the rust spots.
