Streamline the cleaning process by following the tips below:

1.) Olive oil to clean your kitchen
Try using olive oil to clean stainless steel surfaces, such as appliances and pots. Put some oil on a soft cloth and rub in a circular motion.

2.) Vinegar and baking soda can clean tubs and toilets
Mix one cup vinegar, half a cup of baking soda, and hot water. Let it sit for five minutes and this mixture will do the cleaning for you.

3.) Coffee filters clean electronics
Coffee filters are perfect for cleaning TV screens and computer monitors without leaving behind residue fibers like rags do.

4.) A hairdryer eliminates water rings
Use a high heat setting and aim at the spot, like on a wooden table.

5.) Disinfect sponge
You can clean a dirty sponge by squeezing it out and microwaving it on high for a minute.

6.) Limes and lemons clean your garbage disposal
Simply cut the fruit into quarters and place the pieces down the disposal while the water is running.

7.) Clean ceiling fans with a pillowcase
The dust will fall into it instead of onto your furniture and floors.
