Keeping the house clean and tidy is both a necessity and art, which is learned through years of experience. Here are certain hacks passed on by our grandmothers to use the resources productively and effectively.
You can plan deep cleaning of carpets during the spring season, exterior of the house in summers, inside of windows during fall, and flip or vacuum the mattress during winters.
Get crisp bed sheets without having to iron them by folding them into a manageable size before they are fully dry and after washing them. Alternatively, you can just run the iron across the top layer of the bedsheet as well.
Use old linen for cleaning jobs instead of depending on paper towels.
Use clear shoe polish to wax the wooden furniture and make it look rich and vibrant.
Use vertical strokes on one side and horizontal strokes on the other side of the window so that you can easily distinguish on which side you might have not cleaned well enough.
Place a bag of ice cubes onto the spilled wax for a minute and then scrape it once it hardens from the floor or furniture.
Always wash the bathroom wall first from the top and then work your way to the bottom.
Rub toothpaste onto the silverware and then rinse it clean to make it shiny again.
Switch flour sacks to dry the dishes without having to worry about the lint.
Freshen-up mattress by putting them under the sunshine for a few hours to kill dust mites and make them fresh and clean once again.
