Garbage bin cleaning hack.

Your garbage disposal is bound to develop some nauseating smell after a while. And if it is stored inside your kitchen or just outside, the odor finds a way to envelop your entire home. Even after using some cleaning products to clean them, some of them may still possess some offensive smells.

The best to clean your garbage disposal bin is to get some lemons. Slice and run them over every surface and leave it to dry. Your garbage bin will have a fresh and lasting fragrance. You should practice this every week.

Sponge cleaning hack.

Sponge is one of the dirtiest items in any kitchen. This is because food particles and bacteria are picked up inside. Thus, it is important to ensure that it is wiped clean of bacteria. But how do you go about it?

Take your time to remove any particle and put the wet sponge inside your microwave. Turn the microwave on for 30 seconds and remove your sponge. The heat will kill any bacteria contained inside. Cool, right?

Blinds cleaning hack.

Blinds, when left uncleaned for a long time, can accumulate dust and dirt which may take a long time to wipe conventionally. Cleaning them in a short time requires no sophisticated process.

Pour equal amounts of water and vinegar into a bowl and wear a sock over your hands. Dip your hands into the mixture and run it carefully over every slat. The dirt will be completely wiped and you’d have good-looking blinds.

Bathroom cleaning hack.

A lot of people hate cleaning the bathroom because a lot of time is spent ridding that place off an offensive odor. Shower scum and soap suds, for instance, are somewhat difficult to wipe off.

But there’s a hack:

Grab a bucket and pour equal amounts of dish soap and vinegar. Dip your bathroom brush, old sponge or old toothbrush into the mixture and get scrubbing. You’re going to finish cleaning your bathroom in no time.

Microwave cleaning hack.

Microwaves tend to accumulate dirt when left uncleaned. The process of cleaning it can be exhausting.

Pour equal amounts of water and vinegar into a small plastic bowl and place it inside the microwave. Set your microwave on high for 6 minutes and wait for a couple more minutes for the bowl to cool off.

Take out the bowl and wipe the insides of the microwave with a paper towel or sponge. Leave it open to dry, and you have a squeaking clean microwave.

Dishwasher cleaning hacks.

If you’re having troubles with cleaning your dishwasher appliance, here’s how to go about it:

The first step is to remove the bottom rack of your dishwasher. This will give you access to the drain. With the aid of a sponge remove any scum that is lodged inside. Grab a bowl or container and fill it up with a cup of vinegar and pour it on the top rack. Run the dishwasher through a hot water cycle.

Final step? Spray a cup of baking soda on the bottom rack and run it through a hot water cycle again for a couple of minutes. You’ll have clean and fresh dishwater.
