Summer is here and a great time to start fresh. With a freshly clean apartment that is! Why not tackle those cleaning projects you’ve been putting off? Busy schedules can often keep us from small tasks like apartment cleaning. But, cleaning doesn’t have to be time consuming! We have five cleaning hacks that will help keep your apartment spotless:
Lemon Water: One of the easiest ways to clean a dirty microwave is to add two cut lemons to water in a microwave-safe bowl. Then, heat the bowl inside the microwave for about five minutes until the water is boiling. Let is sit for a couple of minutes then wipe down the inside.
Stubborn Stains: Stains happen! Whether it’s on furniture, clothing, or carpet. Clark.com has tips on how to treat common household stains such as nail polish remover for lipstick.
Stovetop Wax: Your dinner exploded all over your clean stove. Now what? No matter your stovetop type, pretreat your stovetop in the future with a buffing wax, like the kind for cars, and voila! You’ll notice that your stove is much easier to clean up when dinner doesn’t go as planned.
Dryer Sheet Dusting: Dusting is never fun. Dryer sheets help pull dust out and make surfaces less likely to attract new dust. For other ways to use dryer sheets, check out Morning Chores.
Fresh Fridge: You go to grab your favorite snack from the fridge and it’s way past its expiration date! To avoid this in the future, Expert Home Tips recommends placing perishable foods due to expire soon in a shoebox clearly labeled to be consumed first.
