Love a clean home, but maybe not the time it takes to get it looking fresh and clean? Below are some time-saving cleaning hacks that I know you’ll love!
13 Time-Saving Cleaning Hacks
Let it Soak: Start your cleaning adventure off by spraying bathtubs, sinks, and toilets. Let the cleaner soak and break down any buildup. You can move on to a different area, instead of spending more time excessively scrubbing.
Dusting: Did you know you can use dryer sheets to dust? It does wonders at picking up the dust that is collecting! Use old dryer sheets and then toss when done!
Crown molding: Don’t worry about getting a ladder, just grab your broom. Wrap a rag around the bristles and secure with clips or rubber band. Then just wipe the dust off without a ladder.
Fridge shelf liner: Using wax paper or the Press and Seal Saran Wrap works great. Just lay it on your shelves and then when dirty just toss and lay out new!
Wash Toys in Dishwasher or Washing Machine: place toys like Legos in the dishwasher, in a mesh bag (top shelf). Then run on a light heat cycle to clean. If you run it too hot it could melt the toys.
Lamp Shades: Use a lint roller to wipe dirt off from lamp shades. It will stick to the roller easily.
Ceiling Fans: Take an old pillowcase and hang it over each leaf, and wipe them off. The dust falls into pillowcase instead of on the floor.
Room to Room: Save time by cleaning one full room at a time. By cleaning one room at a time it will save time from running back and forth.
Carry a Basket: Take a basket or bin with you when you clean. Toss in items that go to different rooms. Then carry it and as you make it to the room put items up.
Cleaning Bin: Consider carrying a bin with cleaners, gloves, old rags and such with you. That way you have all the items you need handy and don’t have to go grab them for each room.
Simplify Cleaners: Consider simplifying your cleaners. Use more multi-purpose cleaners so you are carrying less around to each room. It saves time and money! Or you can make your own cleaners if you want!
Spot Clean: Throughout the week make sure to spot clean in the main rooms of the house. Even if it is 10-15 minutes it will save you so much time overall.
Vacuum Last: When you’re going through the house cleaning you’re bound to kick up some dust bunnies. So sweeping and vacuuming last keeps you from doing the task twice.
