And to help you get started on your Spring cleaning tasks, I’ve gathered some great tips and tricks to make your life easier. These are cleaning ideas that are easy to do, have great results, and will make your home look awesome. So check them out and let me know what you think!

Lint Roll Your Lampshade

Lint rollers work like magic in removing dust from your lampshades. Simply roll it over the shade (or any other fabric surface really) and it’ll instantly collect the dust.

Apply Shaving Foam to Your Mirror

Whether it’s in the bathroom or in your bedroom, shaving foam is a great way to remove smears and smudges easily. Just squirt some shaving foam on your mirror and wipe clean with a cloth.

Clean Faucets Around Home with a Lemon

To quickly get rid of hard water stains on your home faucets, try rubbing a sliced lemon over the stains. It’ll make them shiny and clean again.

Remove Pet Hair with Rubber Gloves

If you have pets at home, then there’s probably a lot of fur on your furniture, carpets, and well… everywhere. So to easily get rid of it, wear a pair of rubber gloves and wipe your hand over places that have gathered plenty of hair. The hair will stick right away, cleaning your place in no time.

Clean Your Dishwasher with Kool-Aid

You can clean your dishwasher with Lemon Kool-Aid. All you have to do is pour the Kool-Aid in the spot where you usually pour in your dish detergent. Put on a normal setting, and you’ll have a sparkling clean dishwasher quickly.

Clean Your Microwave in Seconds

We’ve all had microwaves that had a ton of hard to clean spots from leftovers. But if you just heat a bowl of water in the microwave for 1-2 minutes (or until steam is rising), and leave for a minute, you can scrub off the spots in seconds!

DIY Citrus Garbage Disposal

Making frozen citrus and vinegar garbage disposal ice cubes is the easiest way to get rid of those bad smells. All you have to do is put a few citrus peels into a muffin tin or ice cube tray and fill with vinegar. Pop in the freezer until solid and toss a few into your disposal. The bad smells will be replaced with a lovely citrus scent!

Clean Your Screens Using Coffee Filters

Did you know that you can use a coffee filter to clean up your television and computer screens? They’ll catch the dust and get rid of static cling, all without leaving behind any fibers (or scratches). Impressive right?

Use a Magic Eraser for Your Window Sill

Compared to any other cleaner, magic erasers are one of the best cleaners when getting rid of all the grime and dirt that build up over time on your window sills. They’re super easy to use and leave no mess.

Cloth and a Broom Dusting Hack

If you can’t get your vacuum to reach hard to clean areas that are getting dusty, then cover a long broom with a cloth, secure with a big rubber band, and clean. Super simple right?
