Does Your Home Need A Deep Clean? Expert DIYer Shares 48 Essential Tips For The Deepest Clean

Published

on

Though some of us consider ourselves to be “clean” people, there are parts of our homes and spaces that end up being neglected. While lots of us clean regularly, most of us avoid doing a “deep clean” until we have company or there is some sort of special occasion.

But you don’t have to keep avoiding cleaning up those cracks and crevices. Get the job done quickly and easily with these deep cleaning tricks.

1) Cleaning Faucet Handles

When is the last time you deep-cleaned your faucet handles? I know, not a common question. When you think about it though, that faucet handle sees a HUGE amount of traffic. That traffic is usually comprised of hands that just flushed the toilet, so you can imagine the bacterias that hide beneath those faucet covers. Fortunately, in order to get things nice and clean, you only need to remove the cover and use a screwdriver to remove the handle. Soak it in vinegar, and give a quick scrub, and you’re back on track! Can you believe these hacks? I only wish I would’ve known sooner!

2) ‘De-fuzz’ your screen windows

Our screen doors on windows and doors can become covered in dust, cobwebs, and other yucky things. Thankfully, all you need is a lint roller to have a clean mesh screen again. Using a new sticky sheet, swipe the roller over the screen on both sides. Having trouble reaching? Tape the lint roller to a pole or broomstick.

3) Keep air vents dust-free

Once your air vents become dusty, all of that dust and dirt blows into your home and into your lungs. Keep them dirt and dust-free with this awesome hack from Home Sweet Homebodies. Using a rag, a butter knife, and a bit of all-purpose cleaner, you’ll have clean vents in no time! Just spritz some cleaner on the rag and use the butter knife to guide it through the slots of the grate.

4) Magically clean baseboards

If you haven’t used a Mr. Clean Magic Eraser yet, you’re missing out. This fun product truly lives up to its name and is quite magical. Dampen a Magic Eraser (generic brands work just fine) and use it to scrub off dirt, dust, and grime that has gathered on your baseboards. Works great for removing smudges and scuffs from walls too.

5) Shine your hardwood floors

 

Hardwood floors are absolutely stunning, but they can become scuffed and dirty over time. My Cleaning Solutions has a super easy way to get them shiny and sparkling like new by using just 4 simple ingredients. Mix 1/2 cup of vinegar, 1 tablespoon castile soap, 1/4 cup rubbing alcohol, and 2 cups of warm water in a spray bottle. Spritz, mop, and your floors will be gleaming.

6) When There Is No Magic Eraser

That’s right! Dryer sheets can do more than soften up your laundry and smell nice. You can use these as an alternative to cleaning your shower doors and mirrors. They remove water spots like a charm, and their anti-static effect makes them perfect for wiping down all the dusty spots in your house.

7) Get Stains Out Of Porcelain

Depending on the shape your sink is in, this a 1 to 3 step process. If you’re only battling a little soap scum, you can get away with using a small amount of Bar-Keeper’s Friend. If your sink is looking pretty miserable though, you can first wash it with dish-soap/detergent to remove any grime and most of the buildup. Then spray your whole surface down with bleach and let it sit for 10-15 minutes. Go ahead and wipe it down, and if it’s clean enough for your liking, go on with your day. If you still have a few marks or stains in the sink, put Bar-Keeper’s Friend on each mark and gently rub it in, then wipe away. You’ll be thrilled at how your sink shines!

8) Deep Clean The Toilet With A Screwdriver

No kidding. I can’t believe I never thought of this before! When things start to smell a bit funky, wrap a Clorox wipe around the tip of your screwdriver, and run it beneath or around those hard to reach places. You will be oh-so-happy you did!

9) Keep Papertowels In Reach And Out of Sight

This is more of a tip than a hack. It’s always nice to have a paper towel handy, especially in one of the dirtiest places in the house. However, they don’t exactly pass for home decor. Have your cake and eat it too, with this nifty mounted shelf paper towel holder!

10) Keep Your Toilet Wand Fresh

In addition, to drip-drying your toilet brush, you can add a small amount of Pine-Sol to the holder. It will keep the whole room smelling fresh, and be ready to use when you go to scrub the toilet next. Just make sure you remember it’s there so you can give your brush a little tap to let the excess cleaner drip down into the holder first, and avoid splashing yourself.

11) Use lemon and salt to clean a wooden cutting board.

Wooden cutting boards tend to pick up everything that gets cut on them. To make sure they get a deep clean, first rub them down with some coarse salt to take all the odor and germs out of them. After it’s got a layer of salt on it, cut a lemon in half and swish it around the board. At the end, you should have a sanitized board that smells lemony fresh.

12) Clean out your oven with baking soda and vinegar.

Although nobody looks forward to doing a deep clean of their oven, it’s actually not as difficult as we make it out to be. Though there are many specialty products and foams on the market that are designed for this purpose, there’s actually a simpler and cheaper way. Simply get a bowl and mix together 1/2 a cup of baking soda with a few tablespoons of water to make a paste. Wipe it around your oven and let it sit overnight for about 12 hours. The next day, scrape it all out and finish it off by spraying vinegar solution on the inside and wiping it out.

13) Take paint off of old clothes by using a razor.

If you do much painting or redecorating around your house, there’s a pretty good chance that you have some clothes with too much paint on them. If that’s the case, never fear—you may be able to take that out. Make sure the paint is dried out and then use a normal razor to delicately scrape off the paint from the fibers—just be careful about not cutting your fingers.

14) Use lemons to take out hard water stains.

If you have an old shower or bathtub, you may have a bunch of stains from hard water or limescale. If you can’t visualize this, it’s those web-like lines that you can see outlined on metal and glass. Although many normal cleaners have a hard time taking these marks off, you can use a cut lemon and rub it on them to help out. Let the juices sit for 10 minutes before rinsing with warm water.

15) Use sea salt to clean a cast iron pan.

Though cast iron skillets are very useful in the kitchen, they need a little more tender love and care than some of your other kitchen appliances might. To clean these things, try not to use strong dish soap which can strip away the coating on these pans. Instead, use coarse sea salt to scrub away the leftover residue and do a light rinse at the end instead.

16) Super clean your stainless steel sink

For a super sparkling stainless steel sink, “start by making a paste of water and baking soda. Scrub this around with a sponge, let it dry and then wipe it away with a damp cloth. When your sink is dry, sprinkle in a little flour and with a cloth, polish the steel. Rinse out the flour and let it dry. Finally, put a few drops of olive oil on a clean cloth and use that to shine the steel in your sink.”

17) Use Coca-Cola to clean toilets.

Cleaning the toilet usually means breaking out lots of strong chemicals to make sure everything gets stripped clean. Still, using some of these heavier cleaning solutions isn’t always good for us. To switch things up, you can also pour Coca-Cola in your toilet and let it soak. Scrub like you normally would with your toilet brush and when you flush, the toilet should sparkle. This isn’t a great sign if you drink Coca-Cola, though.

18) Use a squeeze top bottle as a vacuum nozzle

If you have a shop vac lying around the house, you know that not all the attachments it comes with always suit all our needs. Sometimes you need to get into very fine cracks and crannies that the vacuum just isn’t equipped for. To get around that, simply pop the top off of a squeeze bottle and fit it over the end of the vacuum hose—it should be able to get into tiny spaces with no problem.

19) Repair leather furniture with olive oil

Although having a leather couch or recliner is a nice touch in your home, they can easily get scratched up if you have any animals running around. These marks definitely stand out but there’s an easy way to fix them. Simply get a cloth and dab some olive oil on it before rubbing it into the scratched areas. Let the oil dry for an hour and then wipe it all clean with another cloth.

20) Clean your computer or television screen with a coffee filter

If you’ve ever tried to wipe down your computer or TV screen, you know how tricky it can be. You’re not supposed to use strong chemicals and a simple wipe down often leaves trace fibers behind. To get around that, try using the bottom of a coffee filter to wipe down any screens you may have—these catch the dust and leave no trace behind.

21) Take ring stains out of old furniture with a hairdryer

If you’ve ever set a wet glass down on a finished table without a coaster and forgotten about it, you know exactly what happens. You go to lift it up and suddenly there’s a faded and seemingly permanent ring on the table. Fortunately, there’s an easy fix for these problems. Next time you see a ring, get a hair dryer and blow on it for a while. Rub some olive oil into it when you’re done to seal up the spot.

22) Clean your bathtub with grapefruit and salt

Just like with the toilet, the bathtub can be one of the more unpleasant things in the house to clean. To avoid using more strong chemicals, sprinkle coarse salt throughout the bathtub and cut a grapefruit in half. Use the grapefruit like you would a sponge and wipe it all around the tub. When you’re done, rinse the tub out and throw the grapefruit away.

24) Clean your iron with vinegar and baking soda

If you’ve had an iron for a long time, you probably know that the bottom of the iron starts to accumulate burn residue and build up from being used so often. The extreme heat of the iron seems to really set in whatever it touches. Fortunately, you can fix it. Simply make another mixture of vinegar and baking soda and apply it while the iron is off. Scrub it away and the iron should be as good as new!

25) Clean your microwave with a lemon

Cleaning microwaves is so irritating and unpleasant that we almost never do it. Still, what if there were a simpler way to accomplish this without buying heavy chemicals? To do this, simply get a lemon and cut it in half. Throw the halves into a half glass of water and microwave it all on high for three minutes. Let it stand for five minutes so that the fumes can work on the food stuck on the walls. Once it’s done, wipe down the inside!

26) Use a rubber glove to pick up excess dog hair

Dogs are man’s best friend but they also make our cleaning life quite a bit harder. Dog hair seems to stick to whatever it touches usually—but you can use this fact to your advantage. Simply put on a rubber kitchen glove and wipe your hand over whatever cloth surface is sticky with hair. The glove should easily pick it all up!

27) Clean your shower heads with vinegar and a plastic bag

Though we do a pretty good job cleaning the rest of the bathroom, we don’t usually pay much attention to the shower heads. It may simply be because we don’t know the best way to clean them. Fortunately, we have an easy trick. Simply get a plastic bag and fill it with some vinegar. Pull it around the shower head, tie it tight and let the chemicals work their magic. At the end, run the shower, wipe it down and everything should be good as new.

If you haven’t learned by now, baking soda is something like a miracle chemical. One particularly tricky thing to fix is when you get grease or oil stains in a carpet. Fortunately, we have an all-natural solution. Sprinkle baking soda all over the problem area and then spray it with a solution of vinegar and water, mixed 50/50. Let it all set for a few hours and then vacuum it up.

29) Use chalk on any clothing-related grease stains

Similarly, grease can stain your favorite shirts and make it seem like they’ll never be usable again. Wherever the stain is, simply rub some chalk on it and let the dust absorb some of the fat that has soaked into the fibers. Once the chalk has absorbed a good amount of it, wipe it off and wash it like you normally would.

30) Clean your blender easily with a drop of dish soap

Don’t want to wipe out your blender by hand? An easy trick to avoid this is simply to put one drop of dish soap in it and fill it about halfway with water. Run the blender with the soap and the water in it to make suds that will clean out the inside. Once you’re done, rinse it out and it’ll be ready to go.

31) Use toothpaste to clean your sneakers

Not everyone cares equally about how clean their shoes are, but to some people it can be very important. While water and other cleaners don’t always do the job, simply get a toothbrush with a little bit of toothpaste on it and give it a rub into the dirty areas (on white shoes). Scrub it with a toothbrush to lather the dirt and grime out. At the end, wipe the shoes down with a damp towel and you’re good to go.

33) Drip-Dry Your Toilet Brush

It seems like no big deal until you drip dirty old toilet water all over your fresh floor when you go to scrub! Allow the brush to drip-dry each time you use it by wedging it between the bowl and the seat. Trust me, you’ll thank yourself later.

34) Get Rid Of Mold In Grout And Caulking

Here is a hack I know many a lady will LOVE! You know that really gross mold that builds up in the grout between tiles, and the caulking where the tub meets the wall? Yeah, that brownish-black muck that we all hate. Well, now you can virtually wipe it out!

All you need to do is mix just enough bleach with baking soda to make a thick paste. Make enough to line every place you see the mold in your shower (works on countertops too). Then lay it on thick and let it sit for at least 8 hours (while you catch your zzz’s). Wipe off the paste in the morning, gently scrubbing any stubborn bits off with a toothbrush, and giver her a rinse. Bam! No more nasty shower muck in your grout.

35) Get Those Glass Shower-Doors Sparkling Again

There are two ways to approach cleaning your shower that are both effective and easy. The approach you’ll want to use is totally dependent on how much soap-scum has built up on your shower doors. If you are just doing maintenance cleaning, and there isn’t much soap scum, using worn-out, balled up pantyhose can do wonders for clearing up the water deposits on the shower doors. However, if you are like most of the population and your shower doors haven’t seen a good squeegeeing in a while, then the Magic Eraser is your BEST friend. This works not just for shower doors, but also bathroom mirrors, chrome fixtures, and glass in general.

50 Seriously Creative Halloween Costumes That Are Hard To Top

Published

on

Halloween is one of the most, if not THE most, creative holiday there is. People get to use that energy to create fantastical costumes that wow and delight. I mean, you could head to the store and buy a Halloween costume.

But that’s not as much fun as making your own. And some people really go over the top with their costumes. Not only do they come up with brilliant costume concepts, but they also incorporate electronics, sewing, painting, and other skills to make their Halloween masterpieces.

And these pieces really do impress. It’s a shame that they only get used for a day or a few hours during the holiday season. They should be put in a museum of DIY Halloween costumes. I’d pay to see that exhibit. But since that exhibit doesn’t yet exist, enjoy this slideshow instead.

75 Times People’s Taste Was Questionable, But Their Execution Was Flawless

Published

on

The expression “It’s all a matter of taste” is true — most of the time. Sure, we all have different ways of dressing, doing our hair, and decorating our homes. But now and then, you run across something you know defies the saying. Some things are so tacky, ugly, and horrible, you can say definitively — it’s NOT a matter of taste. It’s just plain tasteless.

There are entire Reddit sub-threads dedicated to memorializing these tasteless treasures. Some of them are just plain horrible. Others are DIY disasters from people who think they’re artists but have no talent. Then some make you say “I can’t believe anyone would actually pay money for this.”

But the concept of some things is so bad, you automatically hate them. At the same time, the creations are done so well you can’t help but be impressed. In other words, they’re examples of awful taste but great execution. You can’t decide whether you love them or loathe them.

The subreddit known as r/ATBGE is dedicated to such treasures as these. It’s full of things that make you think, “Ugh, that’s horrible…but done well.”

1. This Van Gogh ear necklace

Legend has it that Vincent Van Gogh cut off his ear and mailed it to the woman he was in love with. Although the legend isn’t true, it’s still immortalized in this unique necklace.

40 Failed DIY Solutions To Ward Off Coronavirus

Published

on

The coronavirus pandemic caught many of us by surprise and has led to some downright thoughtful and useful DIY projects in an effort to slow the spread of the virus.

However, these DIY efforts may not fall into that category.

In fact, we’re not entirely sure what to think about some of them.

However, we do know that a little laughter rarely hurts, so have a look for yourself:

#1 Using what you have

Not everyone was prepared with full PPE. In fact, it’s probably best to leave enough for the frontline medical workers. This guy wearing a bear costume instead of a mask took it a step further and left one medical worker in a much better mood. She couldn’t stop laughing.
Neither can we.

#3 Social distancing
