#2 Silicone Toilet Brush

Silicone brush is far more bacteria-resistant. After using it, spray some hydrogen peroxide, and put it between the seat and the lid. Let it hang to dry.

#3 Lemon

When cleaning faucets and fixtures, the best way is to use fresh lemon. Just it in half and rub it directly on the faucet and it will get off those hard water stains.

#4 Mirrors

To prevent your mirrors from fogging in the bathroom, after you cleaned your mirror, rub some shaving cream on it.

#5 Mold & Mildew Cleaner

If you have dark, moldy grout lines, put this along those mildew lines. Let it sit overnight, then rub it right off.

#6 Sliding Door Tracks

Clean your sliding door tracks with a toilet paper roll. Just put it on the end of your vacuum tube, squeeze it in half, and it becomes the perfect size to fit in between the grooves.

#7 Dust Build-Up

In a spray bottle, add some water, a tablespoon of dish soap, three tablespoons of distilled white vinegar, and one tablespoon of olive oil. Shake it well and spray and wipe down your surfaces with it to prevent dust from accumulating.


#8 Lint Rollers

Use lint rollers to dust off your lampshades.

#9 Trash Cans

Put some essential oil on a cotton ball and put it at the bottom of all of your trash cans. This will make them smell nice.

#10 Trash Bags

Keep your trash bags at the bottom of your trash cans for easy access whenever you have to change them.

#11 Bed

Make your bed in the morning while you’re still in bed.

#12 Drain

Pop some drain starfish right on top of your shower drain so hair will get caught on it and not go down your drain.

#13 Outdoor Window Cleaner

This outdoor window cleaner attaches right to your hose, making cleaning windows a lot easier.

#14 Cracks and Crevices

Get a toothpick and a paper towel. Wrap it around and you can now get in all those little cracks and crevices that need to be cleaned.

#15 Fabric Softeners

Fabric softeners are actually not a good idea. It puts a waxy buildup, specifically and most importantly, on your towels. So avoid using them, instead put 1/2 cup of white vinegar in.
