You will definitely want to bookmark this collection of practical home cleaning tips to help you clean every corner, remove all old stains, and make your apartment cozier.

Universal cleaner

Here is a recipe for cleaning almost any surface and giving it a shine (especially kitchen cabinets, appliances, and the inside of a refrigerator). Mix 4 tbsp. Spoons of baking soda and 1 liter of warm water, and use a solution to clean surfaces. With this cleaner, cleaning  is fast!


Shoe freshener

To get rid of the unpleasant smell of sneakers and a sports bag after a fitness session, pour baking soda inside and leave for several hours. Then just shake out the baking soda, and you're done.

Marker stain remover

Toothpaste is an excellent tool for removing felt-tip and marker stains on wood surfaces. Keep it handy if you have creatively active children. With ordinary paste, general cleaning will become much easier and faster.

Clean soft toys

Between washes in the washing machine, you can clean soft toys with a Velcro roller.

Erase children's drawings from the wall

If your kids have scribbled on freshly painted walls, try removing the scribbles with a wet sponge and baking soda, rubbing them lightly.


Remove pet odors

Drinking soda will again help freshen up upholstered furniture, carpets, dog beds, and houses. Place it in a spray bottle (4 tablespoons per 1 liter of water), fill it with water, and spray surfaces. Let them sit for 15 minutes, and then vacuum.

Refresh the color of white sneakers

White tennis shoes or sneakers can be refreshed with toothpaste. Spread paste on them, let it dry, and then shake off the remnants.

Unravel the chain

Don't waste time frantically tugging at jewelry or gold chains that have become tangled. Loosen the knot by sprinkling it with baby powder, and then untie it with a thin pin or needle.

Soften hard towels

If you have hard water in your home, mineral rinses can make your terry towels hard. To soften them, rinse the towels in hot water with a little ammonia.

Clear-cutting board

Wipe a plastic cutting board with half a lemon, cut side down; the acid will remove odors and many stains. If that doesn't help, sprinkle the board with baking soda or salt, rub with a sponge, and leave for 5 minutes, then rinse with water.

Clear silver

If your silver rings, chains, and bracelets have darkened, clean them with a cloth smeared with toothpaste, then rinse in cold water and dry.

Wash garden furniture

Add some dishwashing liquid to a bowl of warm water and wipe garden tables and chairs with a rag. Then rinse them out with a garden hose. This home cleaning idea is the advice of an experienced housewife.

Vinegar for cleaning windows

Use white vinegar to clean windows to make the glass shine. Mix 2 tbsp. Spoons of white vinegar and 3 liters of water, and pour the solution into a spray bottle. Spray the glasses and wipe with a clean microfiber cloth (do not use paper towels as they may cause streaks).


Remove sweat stains from blouses and t-shirts

If you want to remove yellow sweat stains from the armpits of white and colored shirts, soak the area with liquid enzyme detergent and leave it for 15 minutes. Then sort the laundry and wash whites with strong bleach and powder at the highest temperature. And color—with a stain remover intended for colored linen.

Herbal air freshener

If you add sprigs of thyme or dried lavender to a bottle of white vinegar, you have a homemade air freshener. Wipe surfaces with this product or spray it as a spray.

Or try citrus

Create an air freshener with a fresh orange scent by adding a few orange rinds to vinegar.


Remove grease from kitchen furniture

Just like cooking tools, kitchen cabinets can get greasy when you're preparing dinner. Add a small amount of liquid soap to a spray bottle of warm water to remove grease. Then wipe with a well-wrung, wet cloth, and then dry. For high-quality cleaning in the house, such useful tips will come in handy, right?

Clean copper with ketchup

Copper dishes and utensils can be cleaned with ordinary ketchup, and then rinsed with water.

Cover scratches on furniture

Have you noticed scuffs or scratches on your wood furniture? Wipe them with a shelled walnut kernel to mask any damage.

Use liquid soap with a dispenser

Instead of a soap dish with a bar of soap, which often gets dirty, put a bottle with a liquid soap dispenser on the bathroom sink. It is much more hygienic, and such soap lasts for a long time.


Clean microwave

To clean the inside of the microwave, put a cup of water and crushed lemon slices in it. Turn on high power and heat until all the water starts to boil and the door glass fogs up. Do not open the door for 15 minutes, then open it and clean everything with a cloth.

Wipe your wallet

Surprisingly, sometimes we do not clean the things we come into contact with on a daily basis; this also applies to wallets for money. Studies have shown that fecal bacteria settle on the wallets of half of the women, so do not forget to wipe the wallet with a disinfectant wipe. The same applies to bags.

Dry dirt is easier to remove

Dry dirt is easier to remove than sticky dirt. So if there are traces of dirty shoes on the floor in the hallway, let them dry, and then remove them with a broom. Then wipe the floors with a cloth dampened with soapy water.


Make faucets sparkle

Coat your bathroom faucets with toothpaste and scrub with a sponge, then rinse with water to make them shine like new.

Fighting musty odor

Place an open box of baking soda in your linen closet on a shelf with sheets and towels to help remove bad odors.

Hang your towels the right way

To prevent wet towels in the bathroom from acquiring a bad smell, do not hang them on hooks, but purchase a special towel rack with slats, on which they will be well blown with air.

Use your dishwasher more

Plastic toys, toothbrush holders, soap dishes, flower vases, pet bowls, and more can all be washed in the dishwasher. Use it more actively!

Removing stains from carpets

Dishwashing liquid will help you. Dissolve 1 tbsp. Spoon the liquid into 2 cups of warm water, dampen a clean white cloth, and blot the stain. Repeat several times until the stain is absorbed into the fabric and disappears from the carpet. Then rinse the stain with a sponge and cold water, and pat it dry with a clean cloth.

The silence of the creaky floors

Noise pollution is no joke. If squeaky floorboards in your home are getting on your nerves, sprinkle baby powder on the floor and then sweep it into the cracks and crevices with a broom. Remove excess powder and enjoy the silence!

Wood Cleaning Salt

Coarse table salt will help clean wooden cutting boards and countertops. It can also be used to clean heavy cast-iron pans. Sprinkle salt on the surface, rub, and rinse with water.


Remove coffee stains from cups

If there are traces of tea or coffee on your cup, remove them with toothpaste and then rinse.

Wash Basket

To ensure you don't forget to wash your son's tracksuit or daughter's ballet outfit the day before you need it, put an extra "priority" laundry basket in the bathroom, so you don't forget anything.

Iron your clothes when they are damp.

Moisture helps straighten wrinkles in fabrics, so try to iron straight out of the dryer or use a spray iron.

Mayonnaise for polishing leaves

Use the trick of professional florists: clean the dusty leaves of potted plants (palms, ficuses) with a mild soapy solution, and then put a drop of mayonnaise on the leaf and wipe with a paper towel. The leaves will shine.


How to remove pilling from a sweater

A coarse-textured sponge will help remove lint from a worn sweater. Just rub the sweater with this sponge and shake it.


Clean oven

First, remove all crumbs from the oven, then sprinkle everything burned inside with ammonia from a spray bottle, then sprinkle with baking soda and drizzle with wine vinegar. Close the oven for a couple of minutes. Then scrape off the dirt with a hard sponge or brush and rinse the oven thoroughly with water. We hope that cleaning your home with helpful tips will be easier!
