4 Cleaning “Life Hacks” that Actually Work!

4 Cleaning “Life Hacks” that Actually Work!

Here are a couple of cleaning life hacks that do actually work the way they’re supposed to.

You’ve probably heard a lot about different life hacks around the internet. Many people like to post life hack articles and videos on their social media pages. The purpose of a life hack is supposed to be something simple that you can do to make your life just a little bit easier, but unfortunately, they don’t all work quite that well. Here are a couple of cleaning life hacks that do actually work the way they’re supposed to.

A Squeaky-Clean Microwave

Start with a microwave save bowl. Put in a few slices of lemon, add a generous “glug” of white vinegar, and fill the bowl the rest of the way with water. Microwave the concoction on high for 5 minutes, and then let it steam up for an additional 5 minutes. When the steaming process is finished, you should be able to just wipe it out with a dry paper towel.

Un-Clog Your Shower Head and Faucets

Sometimes, minerals in your water build up around the holes of your shower head and faucets and clog them up. If this is happening in your home, try this! Fill a plastic food storage bag about halfway with white vinegar. The size of the bag will depend on the size of the fixture you’re cleaning. Sprinkle in some baking soda and secure the bubbling bag to your faucet or shower head. After 1-2 hours, remove the bag and you will see a clean fixture!

Hairspray to Remove Permanent Marker

If you’ve ever lived with or taken care of kiddos, you know that permanent marker can end up in some interesting places. Take care of the non-porous surfaces by spraying the marks with a liberal amount of hairspray and wiping it away with a paper towel.
