Keeping your house clean is an impossible task and every mother who has kids running around the living room will confirm this to you. However, there are some clever tricks and tips that you can use in order to make your house shiny clean once again and today we are going to present you the best of them! Without any further ado, let’s get into it.
20. CLEAN VENT SLATS
What many people seem to forget when they buy an air conditioner is that they need to clean it from time to time. The vent slats can get really dusty and the best way to clean them is to throw them into the dishwasher.
19. PROTECTING THE TOOLS
Don’t you hate it when your broom or mop gets bent? This always happens when people use them much, but you can avoid that from ever happening by hanging them upside down. Doing this will stop them from bending.
18. CLEAN SOCKS
There are some spots that are just hard to reach and most of us give up on trying to clean them. However, placing a clean sock over your hand will give you the extra mobility needed to reach those difficult spots. The next tip will also help you get to the hard to reach places.
17. CORDLESS VACUUM CLEANER
If you are the type of person who loves having a clean house, then the most important thing that you can do is to buy a cordless vacuum cleaner. Just like the previous cleaning tip, getting a cordless vacuum cleaner will make it easier for you to make your house shiny clean again.
16. WASHING PILLOWS
The best thing that you can do whenever you are washing your pillows is to throw some tennis balls in the washer. The balls will help absorb the water and this means that the cushions will not lose their comfy form.
15. SALT WORKS WONDERS!
Ever wondered if there is a way to remove the bad looking spots from your iron? Just place the tool on top of some salt and the steel will become shiny once again. The next tip is a must for everyone who likes to have a clean house!
14. CLEAN MATTRESS
Just like air vents, most people forget to ever clean their mattress. Even though the mattress might be covered in silky sheets, this doesn’t mean that it doesn’t require any cleaning so make sure to use the vacuum cleaner on the mattress the next time you clean your bedroom.
13. LINT ROLLER
Lint rollers are one of the best inventions ever! There are so many uses for them and I bet that you never knew they can be used to make your lamp look brand-new again.

11. CARPET STAINS
Is there something worse than having some stubborn carpet stains that just won’t come off no matter what you do? Fortunately, placing a towel and then a hot iron on top of the stain will make it come right off.
10. CLEAN SHOWER HEAD
The shower head is another home appliance that most people seem to forget about when they start cleaning. If you ever want to clean your shower head, then we advise you to place it in a bag of vinegar and let it rest for a couple of hours. The shower head will be cleaner than it ever was!
9. BAKING SODA
There are many uses for baking soda, but I think it’s safe to say that there aren’t that many people who know that it can also be used to clean porcelain sinks. You should give it a try next time you do the dishes.
8. COARSE SALT
Do you love chopping up veggies and other food ingredients on a wooden board? Well, then you should make sure to regularly wash the wooden board with coarse salt because it will kill all germs and make it super clean.
7. SEA SALT
Salt makes an appearance on our list once again, but this time its sea salt. The cool thing about sea salt is that it gives your food better taste and that it can also be used to remove oil stains from cooking pots.

4. DOG HAIR
Everyone who owns a dog knows the pain of having to pick up excess hair. The hair gets everywhere and it’s basically impossible to pick it up. However, things get a whole lot easier if you use a pair of plastic gloves.
3. OIL STAINS
As we already mentioned, there are many secret uses for baking soda and removing oil stains from carpets is one of them. The only thing you need to do is to place baking soda on the stain and just let it stay like that for an hour or two.
