4 Unique Household Cleaning Hacks

Learning how to clean your house using innovative cleaning hacks can save you a lot of time and energy in the long run. Today we are going to show you how to clean your house using things you already have and things you probably didn’t know you could clean with.

Cold Water Cleaning Hack

Try treating fresh stains like barbecue sauce stains using cool water. Using hot water to treat a stain is a common myth. Water that is super cold or hot can press the stain further into the surface. Using cool (not cold) water works wonders as a pre-treatment. Just pour the cool water on the stain and soak it up with a towel before putting the item in the washer.

Showerhead Cleaning Hack

Classic buildup on your shower head can easily be cleaned using vinegar. Yes, the vinegar you have in your kitchen pantry can remove limescale and soap scum from your showerhead. Just unscrew your showerhead and let it soak in pure vinegar for 30 minutes or so and that’s it! If your showerhead doesn’t come off, fill a sandwich bag or small grocery bag full of vinegar and tie it to the shower head until it’s fully immersed. 

Dish Wand Cleaning Hack

Did you know that your dish wand is the perfect cleaning tool for more than just your dishes? Using the interchangeable sponges your dish wand can be used for a variety of tasks around the house including showers, tubs, and toilets. Just fill it with a solution of half dish soap-half vinegar to help fight soap scum and toilet stains. And voila! You’ve got the ultimate cleaning tool.

Grease Stain Cleaning Hack

Aside from vinegar, cornstarch is another must-have pantry item that’s good to keep on hand for certain stain emergencies. Cornstarch works wonders as a pre-treatment for treating grease stains. Pour cornstarch over the entire grease stain and allow it to sit for 15 minutes. Then wipe away using cool water (or vacuum depending on the surface).
