Here is a great scrub free way to clean your microwave! Combine equal parts water and white vinegar in a microwave safe bowl. Microwave this solution for 2 minutes. What this does is it steam cleans your microwave. After the 2 minutes is up, remove the bowl and just wipe away the mess with a damp paper towel and you’re all set!

2. Garbage Disposal

A garbage disposal can get stinky over time due to stuck on food grime on the underside of the splash guard. You can remove this grime with a toothbrush and warm soapy water. You will notice a difference immediately!

3. Stainless Steel Sink

Stainless steel sinks can get stained from time to time. Making a paste out of baking soda, cream of tartar, and peroxide will get your stainless steel sink shining like new! Make sure to polish your stainless steel sink with a scratch free sponge or rag.

4. Oven Glass

Got grease and grime on your glass oven doors? Magic eraser to the rescue! Scrub in circular motions using a wet magic eraser. Then simply wipe away with a dry magic eraser. You’ll be so happy with the results and you did it with no chemicals whatsoever!

5. Stove Burners

All you need for this cleaning hack is ammonia and large zip lock bags. Pour 1 cup of ammonia into a large zip lock bag. Soak an oven burner in the zip lock bag overnight. You will wake up to sparkly clean oven burners!

6. Oven Range Hood Filter

This is one of the easiest and most effective ways to clean your oven range hood filter! Briefly, soak the filter in a water based degreaser from the auto parts store. Almost no scrubbing is required.

You can also buy a water based degreaser on Amazon!

7. Bathroom Walls

Bathroom walls can get dirty and grimy over time. A great way to clean the bathroom walls is to use a dust mop coated with your favorite bathroom cleaner. This method is great for those hard to reach spots. (I personally love the Scrubbing Bubbles cleaner to clean my bathroom walls.)

8. Tub, Tile, and Grout

This amazing 3 ingredient cleaner will clean the tub, tile, and grout. You’ll love the results! For this cleaner, combine ½ cup of baking soda, 1 teaspoon of liquid dish soap, and ¼ cup of hydrogen peroxide. Mix well and it’s ready to use. Not only is this cleaner extremely effective, it is also budget friendly!

9. Shower Head

Fill a zip lock bag with vinegar and attach to the shower head and leave overnight. It’ll be good as new by morning!

10. Chrome Faucets

This cleaning hack is pretty awesome! To make chrome faucets shine like new again, polish them with dryer sheets. This method also helps to repel water stains.

11. Air Vents

To clean those dusty air vents, all you have to do is wrap a butter knife in a paper towel or cloth to reach in between the openings. I like to spray scrubbing bubbles on the cloth or paper towel to get the air vents extra clean.

12. Blinds

We all know how dusty the blinds can get, especially if you live the country! If you find that your feather duster isn’t quite doing the trick, wrap each side of a pair of tongs with a soft rag. Grab an individual blind and run the wrapped tongs from side to side. It will find them to be much cleaner and they will stay clean much longer!

13. Baseboards

This is the easiest way to clean the creases on your baseboards! Take a cotton swab coated in scrubbing bubbles cleaner and just run the cotton swab along the baseboard creases. Next, run a dryer sheet along the baseboards. This will help repel dust collecting as often which means you won’t have to clean the baseboards as often!

14. Screen Doors and Windows

Screen doors and windows collect dust, pet hair, webs…you name it. Run a sticky lint roller across the screen to collect all the debris and you’re all set!
