#2 Silicone Toilet Brush

This type of cleaning brush is far more bacteria-resistant. After using it, put it between the seat and the lid, let it hang, and dry.

#3 Fresh Lemon For Faucets

The best way to clean your faucets and fixtures is by rubbing a fresh lemon. You’ll get all those hard water stains 100% natural.

#4 Prevent Mirrors From Fogging

After you’ve cleaned your mirror, get any type of shaving cream. Rub it all over the mirror and wipe it off. This will prevent your mirror from fogging up for one to two weeks.

#5 Mold & Mildew Cleaner

If you have those really dark grout lines, this product will get rid of them. Just put it along the mildew lines, let it sit overnight, and rub it right off.

#6 Cleaning Your Sliding Door & Window Tracks

Get a toilet paper roll, put it on the end of your vacuum tube, kind of squeeze it in half, and it becomes the perfect size and shape to fit between the grooves.

#7 Preventing Dust From Building Up

For this DIY spray solution, combine water, a tablespoon of dish soap, three tablespoons of distilled white vinegar, and one tablespoon of olive oil. Shake it up, then you can spray and wipe down your surfaces and it’s going to help prevent dust from accumulating.

#8 Lint Rollers

You can use lint rollers to dust off your lampshades and drapes.


#9 Essential Oils

Put some essential oils on cotton balls and put them at the bottom of all your trash cans.

#10 Making Your Bed

Having a hard time making your bed after getting up? You can actually make it while you’re still in it to make it easier and faster.

#11 Hair Stuck In The Drain

Prevent stuck hair from accumulating in your drain by using a drain starfish product. Just pop them right on top of your shower drain and this will catch any hair on top.

#12 Outdoor Window Cleaner

Attach this product right onto your hose and this will make it fast and efficient to clean even high-up outdoor windows.

#13 Cracks & Crevices Around The House

Get a toothpick and a paper towel, wrap it around, then use it to get in all those little hard-to-reach spots.

#14 Avoid Using Fabric Softener

Fabric softener actually causes waxy buildups specifically on your towels. So instead of using fabric softener, all you need to do is put half a cup of vinegar in.

#15 DIY Upholstery Cleaner

Put a dishwasher pod in boiling water, letting it melt down. Then, get a saucepan lid, wrap a microfiber towel around it, then rub it up and down on your rug, on your upholstery, and on your couch.
