Keeping your home clean can feel like a full time job, especially when it feels like as soon as you turn around from cleaning one room another one is dirty. There are a lot of little tips, tricks, and hacks that homeowners swear by for cleaning their home or keeping their home clean for longer, but which ones actually work? We collected three hacks that we’ve tried and can guarantee will work to keep your home clean for longer, so you can sit back and enjoy the results of your hard work.
- Apply a car-windshield guard to your glass shower door to prevent soap scum – Using a shield like Rain-X on your glass shower door will protect it from growing soap scum, which can be famously hard to clean and prevent. The product creates an invisible barrier, so soap and water will slide off the door.
- Utilize Carpet Protectants – It is better to be safe than sorry, as the saying goes, and using a carpet protectant could save you a lot of headaches in the long run. A carpet protectant will preserve your carpet and prevent it from staining, especially if you use it once a year. They cause spills to pool on top of carpet instead of sinking in, making clean-up a breeze.
- Use a Wet Pumice Stone to Clean Your Oven – Even though traditional oven cleaners get the job done, they are full of chemicals and often give off unpleasant fumes. A wet pumice stone will do just as good of a job (maybe better) of scraping off baked in remnants of food while having the added bonus of being non-toxic.
