Six of Our Favorite House Cleaning Tips

Who wants to spend more precious time than necessary doing household chores. Here are a few ways to make housekeeping faster and easier:

  • Sharpen scissors and pinking shears cutting through several layers of aluminum foil. Use the same method for can openers. It really works!
  • To quickly remove pet hair from clothes or furniture, rub them with old-fashioned rubber gloves (like some people wear for doing dishes). You can buy them at any super market. Dampen the gloves first for an even faster job.
  • Got a loose button? Dab some clear nail polish on top of the thread and let it dry. It will never come off.
  • To restore toilet bowls back to their shiny best, clean with old, flat Coke or Pepsi. To dissolve limescale, leave the soda overnight to soak.
  • Toss your soiled shower curtain in the washer with a couple of bath towels and the usual amount of detergent. Hang to dry.
  • Keep kitchen brushes and sponges clean a sweet-smelling by putting them on the top rack of the dishwasher every time you run it.
