20 Home Cleaning Hacks Professionals Don’t Want You To Know

Let’s be honest: cleaning is no fun, especially if it’s your own home. And paying hard-earned money for a professional to clean your home for you is not always the most financially-savvy option either.

Here are 20 of the most common household cleaning chores and the hacks that will make everything a breeze to clean:

To counteract the smell and get it smelling clean again, simply pour some baking soda down the drain, followed by some generous squeezes of lemon. Let it soak for half an hour.

Smelly Drain

If your shower head has seen better days (watermarks, semi-clogged holes), just tie a vinegar-filled plastic bag around it, let everything soak for an hour, and your showerhead will operate and look brand new!

Stained Shower Heads

We recommend cutting a lemon in half and giving all the surfaces a healthy once-over. Then follow it up with a generous rub of wax paper to see instant results!

Water-stained Faucets

Here’s a pro-tip: a dish wand (and vinegar!) is your best friend when it comes to keeping your home clean. To clean shower walls, add an equal part of vinegar to the dish soap that you already use in the wand.

Grimy Shower Walls

We recommend weekly wipes of your baseboards with dryer sheets – this quick process will eliminate dust buildup and you’ll be using a product you already have in your home to do it.

Dusty Baseboards

We recommend soaking in a water/vinegar solution to truly take a hands-on approach to this cleaning. Come to think of it, this sounds like a great little chore for your sock puppet-loving little one!
