These 20 Amazing Cleaning Hacks Will Change Your Life

Cleaning is one of the least fun things to do in life, but we have to do it anyhow. Whether you live in a palatial mansion or a small cozy apartment, you probably don’t enjoy cleaning, and may even relegate to the “later list.” Cleaning can be easy though, or at least made a little more simple, by following this list of 20 mind-blowing cleaning hacks.

#1 Pick up broken glass

Stop picking up small glass shards with your bare hands. Press a piece of white bread all over the area to pick up even the tiniest pieces.

#2 Clean Your Mattress.

Pour vodka into a spray bottle, spritz lightly across your mattress and leave it to air-dry. The alcohol will kill the odor causing bacteria.

#3 Bathtub Ring Remover.

Cut a grapefruit in half and sprinkle it (and the tub) with salt. Now use the fruit as a scrubber and those rings will fade away.

#4 Dishwasher Deep Cleaner

Clean your dishwasher by running it on the highest temperature with a cup of vinegar on the top shelf. Then sprinkle some baking soda on the bottom and run it again. Now it’s CLEAN.


#5 Onion Grill Cleaner

Grab half a white onion and rub it across the grate of the hot grill using a fork. This will clean the grate, and even leave flavor for next time.

#6 Blender Cleaner

Fill a blender with warm water and a drop of dish soap, then turn it on and blend for a few seconds. Dump, rinse with clean water, and dry.

#7 Ceiling Fan Cleaner

Throw an old pillowcase around the fan blades and wipe from within. It should keep all the dust inside and be wayyy easy.

#8 Vacuum Up Vomit

Combine baking soda and water into a paste and spread over the vomit. Let it sit overnight and then you’ll be able to vacuum it all up the next day.


#9 Carpet Stain Lifter

Take a mixture of two parts water, one part vinegar, and spray on the stain. Lay a damp rag over the top, and iron it. The result? BOOM.

#10 Dryer Sheet Cleaners

You can use dryer sheets to clean anything from TV’s to bookshelves. Plus, the anti-cling effect will stick around and repeal dirt in the future.

#11 Clean a Coffee or Spice Grinder

Scrub these hard to clean gadgets by grinding 1 tablespoon baking soda to clean, and wipe them thoroughly. You’ll be amazed at the effect.

#12 Overnight Oven Cleaner

Put a bowl filled with 1/2 cup of ammonia into a completely cold oven. Leave overnight and wipe clean the next day.


#13 Pet Hair Squeegee

Clean up your dog’s fur (even what you don’t see) by running a squeegee over the carpet. You’ll be shocked at what you find.

#14 Two-Step Foreman Grill Cleaner

Cleaning a Foreman can be super tough. When you’re done cooking, unplug it, and press a couple of damp paper towels between the lid and the surface. The leftover heat will steam clean the grill. Wipe it dry with another paper towel and you’re done.

#15 Destroy Water Rings

Soak up excess moisture with a towel, then blast it with a hair dryer while still damp, and they should disappear.

#16 Revitalize Leather Furniture

Buff worn leather furniture with shoe polish. Scrapes and scuffs will disappear.


#17 Quick-Dry Wet Shoes and Gloves

Use crumbled newspaper for a super quick dryer. Don’t like to kill trees? A sachet of plain uncooked rice works too.

#18 Sponge Sanitzer

As an alternative, you can run it through the dishwasher.

#19 Grease Stain Fixer

Never worry about destroying your clothes with grease again. Cover the stains with white chalk, wait a few minutes and then wipe the chalk away with a damp cloth.

#20 Microfiber Couch Miracle

Spruce up your couch by first using a spray bottle to cover it with rubbing alcohol. Next, use a clean white sponge to rub the couch and fluff the fibers with a hard bristle brush when done.
