Lazy Cleaning Hacks

Let’s get to the point. We don’t like to clean. No matter how many times we hear the phrase, “a clean home is a happy home”, we can never find the enthusiasm to pick up the vacuum to start cleaning. We are not ashamed because we know that we are not alone. Here are some hacks that helped make cleaning a tolerable task.

  1. Cute House Cleaning Slippers: Best invention. EVER. This adorable pair of house slippers can keep your feet warm and clean your hard wood floors at the same time. They’re $12.99 from Amazon. #takemymoneynow.Plush Mop Slippers
  2. Lint rollers are your friend: These sticky rolls of goodness will pick up a lot more than just lint and pet hair from your clothing. Roll it across the counters to pick up dust. Roll it across the floor to pick up crumbs. Granted, you should invest in a duster and vacuum as part of your basic cleaning equipments but lint rollers are great for when your husband’s friends are coming over in an hour and you just found out 15 minutes ago.Lint Roller
  3. Layer on the Aluminum Foil: Put on a layer of aluminum foil on your baking ware. Crumbing up the foil and tossing it in the trash after making baked salmon with lemon is the BEST feeling in the world. No clean up required. YAY!Foil.jpg
  4.  Car wax your tub and shower: Okay. This actually involve some cleaning in the beginning. Scrub down your tub or shower stall and make sure you get as much of the soap scum out as you can. Use a little bit of car wax to go over the surface and wipe off the excess with a microfiber cloth. You only need a little bit of car wax. The idea is to protect the tub or shower stall from harsh water marks and soap scum that’s hard to clean in the future. Don’t put too much so that it’s difficult to stand without slipping and hurting yourself.car wax
  5. Contact paper the shelves in your fridge: Fridges are not off limits to cleaning. Food can be filthy! Especially gross expired food that you forgot to throw away last week. We really should be wiping down our fridge at least once a month. If you use contact paper, peel and replace. You can also decorate the inside of your fridge with different contact paper designs.contact paper
  6. Invest in a Roomba: iRobot Roomba is your BFF of all of cleaning equipments. All you have to do is set it to the location of where you’d like for it to vacuum and press the button. It will tell you when it needs help, when it runs out of battery and when it’s done cleaning.  This beautiful machine will save you so much time, especially if you have a pet (or two) running around all the time.

    May I simply just say what a relief to discover a person that truly knows what they’re discussing
    on the net. You actually realize how to bring a problem to light and make it important.
    More people should check this out and understand this side of your
    story. It’s surprising you aren’t more popular because you
    most certainly have the gift.

    Hi Bay, it’s Irene Z here, trolling through your blog. The slippers are fun, aren’t they? I’ve seen them at Daiso for a fraction of that price, they’re not that cute though. I want to say in terms of quality they are good.

      Hi Irene! Thanks for dropping by our blog. I’ve purchased some dust gloves from Daiso that are just as cute as the slippers! Saves me a lot of time dusting my counter tops. I just put them on and start wiping everything down. It’s really great! Love Daiso!
