Take an old pillowcase and spray the inside with dusting spray*. Cover a fan blade with the pillowcase, press down on the top of the case, and slide it off the blade. This will take off all the dirt and dust on both the top and the bottom of the fan quickly!
*If you don’t have dusting spray, you can easily make your own by mixing 1 cup of water, 1/4 cup of vinegar, 2 tsp of olive oil, and some essential oils if you’d like.
After stripping down your mattress, sprinkle some baking soda (as well as some lavender essential oil if you’d like), and let is sit for an hour or two. Then, use the furniture attachment part of the vacuum cleaner to clean up the baking soda. The baking soda works to soak up any body oils while the essential oils provide therapeutic effects for a good night’s sleep.
Make a scum buster by mixing 2 parts hot white vinegar with 1 part dishwashing liquid. Put the mixture into a spray bottle, spray down your shower/bathtub, and let it sit for an hour or two. Afterwards, you should now be able to easily scrub away the scum to reveal a sparkling clean shower/bathtub!
Mix 2 parts baking soda with 1 part vegetable oil and use a sponge to clean the surface of the cabinets. For hard to reach areas, you can also use a toothbrush to really get into the nooks and crannies. Wipe everything down with a damp cloth after.
For things in the kitchen that can’t be cleaned with traditional cleaners, such as cookie sheets or the stove top, make a mixture of baking soda and hydrogen peroxide. Rub the paste into the surface of what you want to clean and let it sit for several hours. You should then be able to easily wipe it away to reveal a clean, grime free surface.
