Here are a few hacks that I wish every homeowner knew in the world:
- Using a Swiffer to clean glass and mirrors: Our houses are full of mirrors and glass furniture that are hard to reach. The answer to this problem is very simple! Just get a Swiffer and fold a microfiber cloth on the cleaning end of it. All you have to do is spray the mirror/glass cleaning solution over the surface and drag down the Swiffer from top to bottom in one swipe. This way, you can clean all of it, even the hard-to-reach part, and leave no streaks behind. The best glass/mirror cleaning solution, in my experience, is the foam-style one.
- Deep cleaning dirty laundry: Washing machines are great, sure, but have you ever come across freshly done laundry and seen some soapy, dirty, and oily spots on your clothes? We most certainly have, and to fix that, I recommend following this hack! Fill up your bathtub with PIPING HOT WATER. It needs to be boiling hot! Once it is filled halfway, add a quarter cup of borax and baking soda and a big scoop of powdered surf. Now throw in the clothes you want to deep clean and let them settle in. Grab a sturdy object, long and sturdy, and use it to spin the laundry around so that every part of the fabric gets exposed and rinsed appropriately. You need to stir them every hour and let the laundry soak in for about 6 hours. Trust me, the water color after 6 hours will shock you! Pick up the laundry, wring out the clothes properly and give them a quick wash using your washing machine.
