CLEAN FREAK SERIES: 10 strange cleaning hacks


Brace yourself, these hacks are weird, but they actually work.

1.) Can’t find your duster? No problem! Use a lint roller to dust everything. Best part is, the dust sticks to the roller and won’t be flying everywhere and making you sneeze. Don’t know about y’all, but dust makes my allergies go crazy!

2.) Tired of wearing your arms out by scrubbing, scrubbing, scrubbing the stuck on food off your dishes? Put a dryer sheet in yours sink full of dishes. It will soften the stuck on food, making it easier to clean off.

3.) Do you have pet hair everywhere and can’t find your vacuum? (Yes, it’s possible to lose a vacuum, my husband has done it. Hahaha.) Use a rubber glove to remove pet hair from your furniture.

4.) Need to clean your mattress? In a spray bottle, mix half a shot of vodka with some water and a few drops of your favorite essential oil. Spray your mattress and let it air dry. The vodka will help kill the odor producing bacteria lingering in your mattress, and the essential oil will keep it smelling good.

5.) Can’t get that disgusting ring in your toilet to disappear? Coca-Cola will clean it for you. Pour a can of coca-cola around the rim of the toilet so that it coats the whole bowl. Leave it sitting in the toilet overnight so the acids in the Coca-Cola has time to break down the ring. Just imagine how bad Coca-Cola is for your body if it can break down rust rings in the toilet…


6.) Dusty ceiling fans? Use a pillow case to dust your ceiling fans so all the dust doesn’t fall on your furniture or floor, but will fall into the pillow case. Easy, right?

7.) Dirty iron? Scrub your dirty, discolored iron with white vinegar and salt to clean and make look brand new again.

8.) Did your kids put their artwork on your walls? Before scrubbing off the crayon, heat it up with a blow dryer to loosen it and then wipe away with sponge and soapy warm water.

9.) Clean dirty blenders quick! Fill dirty blender with warm water and a nickel sized amount of dish soap and turn on high speed for about a minute and then dump out and rinse out. BAM! Clean without having to scrub it.

10.) Dishwashers can clean more than just dishes… That’s right. You can stick numerous things in the dishwasher to clean them. Bath toys, shoes, hats, light covers… Bet you didn’t know that, huh?

When you don’t have the tools to accomplish  a cleaning task, you have to improvise. One of the things that mom’s are great at anyways.

  1. These are GENIUS! I am trying the dryer sheet and pillowcase today!

  2. The crayon hack is so useful! Nd about the coca cola, anything that is rusty can be cleaned with it!

  3. I love #2 and #6 the most. I never knew about dryer sheets when washing dishes. Since my husband and I are Chefs, we love cooking great meals at home and dishwashing is always something that we dread! Thanks for the tip 🙂

  4. Thank you, ma’am! I see quite a few of these hacks I need to try!
