Lazy people might get a stick for their personality flaw wherever they go, but it is also true that much of the “DIY” tricks trend has been set by them. Their life mantra is to get things done expending minimum effort, and that’s what we also bring today with these 10 life hacks for the damning chore of cleaning up the house.
1) Throw everything in the dishwasher!
It is amazing how many things you can clean with a dishwasher. AOL has a full list of things that are totally safe to be “dishwash-ed” that range from shoes to computer keyboards! Might just have to prostrate in front of the mighty dishwasher from now on!
2) Clean your microwave the easy way.
Many people dread the thought of cleaning their microwave oven and are apprehensive about using those supposedly dangerous chemical lotions. Providr brings an easy way to perform the task, as you simply need to fill a glass bowl with water and half a lemon, and maybe add some vinegar and set the microwave for a few minutes until the water is boiling. All the vapors can then be easily wiped out with a cloth!
3) Use stove-top liners.
Use noncombustible material for the liners and say goodbye to the hassle of scrubbing those stovetops from the flecks of food. Simply replace the liners when you are done, and you have your stove as good as new!
4) Use furniture polish on everything.
Putting furniture polish on everything from your fridge to the dresser and even the doors etc. will make them look nice and shiny. But do be careful not to spray it on the floor because it can get slippery.
5) Line your fridge with plastic wrap.
Fridge spills are the hardest things to clean since you have to empty the whole compartment and sometimes even the entire refrigerator before cleaning the mess. So why not place plastic sheets on ever tray making it easier to clean them up.
6) Let the blender clean itself.
After using the blender, simply rinse it and fill it with warm water and a little detergent and hit the blender button again to let it clean itself!
7) Use shower gel instead of soap.
You’ll not need to clean the bathroom tiles, or at least the ones close to the shower if you use shower gels in your bath. According to Buzzfeed, soap contains the fats and oils that lead to the brown buildup on your shower tiles.
8) Clean your mattress with vodka.
Distractify’s life hack is the best of the lot! Spray a little vodka on your mattress, and let the alcohol kill bacteria and cut out the musty odors. Add some essential oils for more scents!
9) Clean your ceiling fan the easy way.
Using dusters etc. usually end up with the dust and lint on your face. Instead, use an old pillowcase, place it over one blade and press your hands to both sides of the blade while pulling the case off. The whole dust will be trapped inside the pillowcase which you can simply dust off.
10) Use a removable oven liner.
Save yourself the trouble of cleaning the food droppings from the oven by using oven resistant liners!
