9 Simple Time-saving Cleaning and Organizing Hacks
1. Give It a Soak
Soaking is one of my favorite cleaning hacks. Just by spraying down your gas top, bathtubs, sinks, and toilets. Let the cleaner soak and break down any buildup.
You can move on to a different area while these areas soak to avoid spending unnecessary time excessively scrubbing.
Soaking is also amazing for your laundry routine.
Pre-soaking heavily soiled laundry before washing can make a huge difference in getting the clothes clean.
Pre-soaking helps the stains to come loose and be removed more easily.
Simply fill your washing machine, bucket, or tub with warm water, and then add your detergent and clothes.
2. Get to know the magic of white vinegar
Diluted with water to about 5 percent acidity, distilled white vinegar is hailed as a natural, non-toxic cleaning marvel, killing some household bacteria, dissolving hard-water deposits, and cutting through grime at a fraction of the cost of brand-name cleaning products.
- In kitchen: For cleaning microwaves, just pour a little vinegar into a bowl of water and microwave it for a few minutes—you can then easily wipe out the grunge from the inside of your microwave.
- In toilets: White vinegar is not only effective at cleaning and whitening tiles and grout, but it’s also safer than chlorine bleach. Just spray full-strength vinegar on grout and caulk in the shower or kitchen, let it soak in for at least an hour, then scrub it off with a brush.
- For laundry: For removing stains like mustard, ketchup, tomato sauce, grass, and underarm deodorants, spray a little white vinegar onto the stain before laundering. Soaking whites in vinegar will help bring back their whiteness.
3. Clean the whole house, not one room at a time
Cleaning is much more efficient if you pick one task (dusting, vacuuming, mopping) and do the same task in every room in the house, rather than cleaning the kitchen, the bathrooms, and then the bedrooms.
Doing it that way prevents you from feeling like you’re in an endless cleaning cycle, starting the same task over and over again.
It’s so much more efficient and saves time by cleaning one full task at a time.
Make sure that you use the next hack to still get out all the things that don’t belong in that room.
4. Use empty baking trays lined with foil
Use lining paper on your baking trays where possible. Soak all your oven trays in hot, soapy water straight after use.
Eliminate the need for heavy scrubbing by preventing grease, rust, or stuck-on food in the first place.
Lining a baking sheet before cooking or baking will help to keep food from sticking and make for easier cleanup.
- Aluminium foil: Because of its ability to bunch up, it can help to clean up liquid messes with ease. A good option for messy food items such as pizzas.
- Parchment paper: Parchment paper is an excellent, heat-safe option for lining baking sheets. It is a grease-proof paper that is used in baking and cooking as it provides a heat-resistant, non-stick surface to bake on. Best to use parchment paper when baking cookies or roasting vegetables.
5. Use Microfiber cloth to clean your windows and mirrors
Use one damp microfiber cloth, followed by one dry cloth in wiping clean all the mirrors and glass surfaces.
Using a microfiber cloth will ensure that your glass is clean, dry, and lint-free.
The small fibers in a microfiber cloth are designed to absorb or cling to anything they come into contact with.
I love the Microfiber Cleaning Cloths. They have made getting mirrors, windows, and all shiny surfaces dirt free.
6. Wash Toys in Dishwasher or Washing Machine
If you have a dishwasher this washing hack saves you lots of your time.
Some toys may be labeled as being dishwasher safe. Infant rattles, plastic blocks, large plastic pegs, plastic shape sorter pieces, and some bath toys can be placed on the top rack of the dishwasher.
Check to see if the toy is dishwasher safe. If so, place it on the top rack of your dishwasher and wash using regular dishwasher detergent,
Soft toys can also be washed, but throw those in a mesh bag in the washing machine, not the dishwasher.
7. Clean your ceiling fan with a pillowcase
The trick is using a pillowcase. Yes!, just a regular pillowcase. You just insert each fan blade into the pillowcase, use your hand to press the fan leaves, and wipe out the dust gently.
This will leave your home and your fan nice and clean, eliminating unwanted dust in the atmosphere. Finally, clean the blades using a rag and all-purpose cleaner after you’ve removed all the dust.
This will leave your blades shining and smelling fresh.
8. Set a daily timer for power cleaning
How do you clean your house fast?
In the kitchen, wiping surfaces, keeping tabs on the fridge, and washing dishes every day will prevent big time-consuming messes down the line.
Wipe your counter and stovetops with an all-purpose cleaner after use.
Finally, make a daily cleaning schedule that you can stick to.
The takeaway here is to spend 10 minutes each day and focus on what’s most important in your house. Clean, declutter or organize the area that needs it most.
Schedule a particular time for your morning cleaning and nighttime cleaning to reset your day for stress-less mornings.
9. Always follow cleaning rules
Before you even start cleaning, go room to room and pick up the clutter. As you pick up each item. Before you start dusting, make sure ceiling fans are turned off. Concentrate your dusting on the tops of furniture and the undersides of shelves.
Some cleaning rules I always follow are:
- Clean from the top down
- Tidy first, then clean
- Clean the ‘dry areas’ first
- Clean the floors last
- Vacuum all floors first before you mop.
- Make sure any bigger pieces of dirt don’t get stuck in your mop.
By incorporating a few tips and tricks, you can save time and be more productive.
