6 Cleaning Hacks You Didn’t Know About...



Bust Out a Coffee Filter

To clean glass and mirrors, use coffee filters, not paper towels. They leave no streaks or lint — and they're cheap.

Remove the Ring

Drop in a bubbling denture tablet, and leave it for at least 30 minutes or overnight. The stain will come off with just a few swishes of the brush OR use stale COKE... pour it around the rim so it flows over the stains around the inside of the bowl. Let it sit for at least an hour.

Effective Way to Clean Your Tub

Heat 1/2 C white vinegar in microwave for 90 sec, pour into spray bottle. Add 1/2 C BLUE Dawn dish soap. Shake gently to mix. Spray on surface. Let it sit 1-2 hours if tub is really dirty. Just wipe it away then rinse with water. Should also take soap scum off shower doors!

Brighten Your Grout

If you have dirty, dingy grout, pour a bit of cola onto the area, let it sit for a few minutes, and wipe clean. For tough stains, use a cleaning toothbrush to scrub the grout before wiping the area clean OR use Magic Eraser for cleaning white grout effortlessly

Mirror Mirror on the Wall

To remove the dull haze from mirrors, use rubbing alcohol. It will also remove spots from bathroom fixtures.


Awesome fountain cleaner

Pour a generous amount of Hydrogen Peroxide– about 1/3 – 1/2 of a 16 oz bottle into the fountain water. The amount depends on how big your fountain is –Nothing will happen right away – but give it a day and you will be shocked to see every bit of green slime gone and your fountain returned to crystal clean beauty. It does not hurt the wildlife either; because it turns into oxygen by the time those 24 hours are up!
