Cleaning Hacks You May Not Of Heard Of



Recently I've been really upping my cleaning game #mrshinchmademedoit. Yes I started following Mrs Hinch on Instagram, who hasn't? I've started these new ways of cleaning, things I've perhaps not done before, one very simple thing in particular would be 'being organised' who'd of thought that's the secret to doing cleaning.

It got me thinking though, is there any other cleaning hacks out there that I don't know about? I asked some fellow bloggers what they did - I also added 'the weirder, the better.'

Bicarb of soda on bathroom tiles literally lifts the dirt off - Lianne 

Coke down the toilet leaves it sparkling and it is a great way to use up flat coke! - Emma

Nair down the shower plughole dissolves the hair that gets trapped down there - bit unconventional but it works!  - Alex

Put a plastic bag filled with white vinegar and water over the showerhead for descaling. Works a treat! - Victoria

Every week I fill the bath with cold water and Milton sterilising fluid and throw in all the bath toys to soak overnight - it helps minimise the mould and grot! - Suzi

Use a little baby oil to buff up your stainless steel appliances and surfaces. - Jayne

Oh I am a terrible ditherer. I now make my list then set a 30 minute timer on my phone and whizz round as quick as I can. It works great for me - I get soooo much done - Carla-Marie

Using some toothpaste is great for removing crayon marks from the walls! It's been a life saviour here. - Beth

When you've used a lemon don't throw it away - put it in the top drawer of your dishwasher - your pots will come out sparkly clean and smelling great - Lauretta


Loved these! I love hacks where you're using something that's actually used for something else eg. toothpaste, bicarb soda, flat coke. I hope someone else takes use from these too, cleaning definitely helps with the mental health!

  1. Bicarb soda is one of those gems that will stand the test of time, plus I love how it helps get everything clean and shiny.

  2. I love using vinegar. I had no idea toothpaste can be a cleaning tool too! Random crayon marks is a problem in my house... 😅
