With just a plastic bag, rubber band, and vinegar, you can clean that dirty shower head. It’s not something many people think about, but it has to be done.

Citrus Spray

Want to make your countertops (and tables) shine? Then just save up some of your lemon and orange peels to make this citrus spray. It’s a great way to keep things looking fresh!

Cleaning Scrub

With salt and half a lemon, you can clean things like a wood cutting board effectively. It’s a great way to scrape out anything that’s been stuck and kill off bacteria.

Clean Your Shower with a Grapefruit

A great way to make the metal (showerhead, knobs, faucet, etc.) in your shower sparkle and smell amazing is to clean with half of a grapefruit. Now that’s definitely a great money saver.

Rosemary Garbage Disposal Cleaners

Clean Your Dishwasher with Kool-Aid


Found from DIY Joy: See Source Below

Alright, so if Kool-Aid can be used as a cleaner, then I’m not sure how great it is that our kids are drinking it. But nonetheless, it’s a super cheap and easy hack to get your dishwasher clean again. Sometimes those things can get nasty and smelly, and need a good clean. Also, it’ll help keep your dishes sanitary, so that’s a huge plus.

Now it doesn’t have to be spring to start getting your home in shape. And whether you’re hoping to clean your whole house or a room or two, there are always plenty of hacks to help you out. Things can get pretty nasty really fast, which is why us homeowners (and people who live in apartments), need all the help we can get.
