Cleaning your house is a painful necessity. You might not be happy doing it, but it is impossible to just leave your house and things untidy and dirty. If you know the right things that you need to buy and do, then your cleaning is already half done. Having the right hacks and tips can make you accomplish your cleaning tasks easily.

Here are five great cleaning hacks to make your chores easy.

1. Use Vinegar for Cleaning

Vinegar found in everyone’s kitchens is a superstar for cleaning.

It can help clean a collection of cloudy and dirty drinking glasses that just won’t come clean with anything else. A mixture of Vinegar and water is universally helpful in removing any kinds of stains from your carpets, clothes, and even curtains.

Soaking up a cloth with water and Vinegar, laying it on top of any stained cloth, and ironing over it will exterminate almost any stain!

2. Easy Microwave Cleaning

Nothing is more annoying and hard to clean than the smells and stains from the inside of a microwave. A great way to ease this task is to fill up a bowl with a half and half solution of water and vinegar and a couple of slices of lemon and let the microwave run for a few minutes.

Doing this helps loosen up all the stains in the microwave; next, you just have to use a sponge to scrub away all the dirt and smells from it.

3. Stock Up on Baking Soda

Baking Soda is another kitchen ingredient that is amazing at helping you clean. It is great in helping with dirty odors and smells. It can be used in your shoes, wardrobes, and furniture like your couches!

Whatever part of your house that’s got a weird or bad smell, just sprinkle some baking soda on it! It will have your shoes, clothes, and furniture odorless once cleaned away.

4. Nail Polish Remover

Nail polish removers are just as amazing for stains as they are for your nails!

Shoes with stains on them can be cleaned by using a toothbrush and nail polish remover.

It can be used on all kinds of different surfaces, from floors to countertops. Nail polish remover also cleans up hard-to-remove labels and stickers which leave behind residue. Soaking a cloth and dabbing up stains on old or stained fine china will leave them looking new and clean.

5. Lemons For Cleaning

Lemons are great tasting and can have multiple amazing uses around the house to help you in your chores. They are very acidic and have natural antiseptic and antibacterial properties. You can use them to remove stains, odors, grout, and everything in between.

Use lemons to clean old containers by leaving lemon juice in them for around 10 to 15 minutes, then rinse.

Lemons help in reducing odors and aromas from your home. They can also be used to keep insects away by squeezing lemons along your windows and doors.
