22 Little Known Tips to {Really} Clean Your Home

Now what I like about this post by Kresha from Nourishing Joy is that she gives tips on how to clean certain parts of the house (basically a breakdown). Parts like the kitchen, bathroom, laundry room, and common areas. But my favorite tip is this:

So those nights where you decide to get Chinese take-out and eat at home are great. You’re watching some movie on Netflix when suddenly.. that sweet and sour chicken just hit the floor. Well… that’s gonna leave a stain. Unless, you do this!

Fresh stain: try to get as much of the stain out as you can, then pour a ½ inch of salt over the stain and leave for 1-5 days (reapply salt as needed). The salt will soak up any stain and once it’s done, you can break the salt up and vacuum. Done.

Old stain: it’s basically a repeat of the first except you first moisten it heavily with water and blot, then apply the salt procedure.

I love organization, and I especially love it if it looks good.. really good. Which is why I love Kelly Dixon’s finds on home hacks.

Refrigerator Organization Tips

I hate coming home after grocery shopping only to find that most of the space in my refrigerator is already taken (or just totally disorganized making it a pain to move things around), and that’s why I really appreciated Chelsea’s hack on how you should,

Keep perishables in the front so that you’ll remember to use them right away instead of letting them fall further back, forgetting about them, and then finding them moldy and disgusting a couple weeks later. It also keeps things rotating which gives you more room.

20 Organizing Life Hacks

On How to Nest for Less by Erin, she found an awesome hack for the laundry room.

Use a hanging shoe rack to hold cleaning supplies (and keep out of kid’s reach). I thought this one was great because it’s always such a hassle to bend down, look under the skink, and try to rummage through all the bulky cleaning containers to find what you need. With this, the shoe rack is clear plastic so you can find what you’re looking for faster… and it just looks nicer.
