Lamps & Lampshades
Let’s talk about lamp shades and you can easily use a lint roller to clean these off easily. If you want to be more eco-friendly you can use a reusable lint brush as well. You can find those at the dollar store.
Can you clean light bulbs with water?
This next dusting hack works for any light bulb. Simply take a damp washcloth and wipe off your light bulb. You can also use a damp microfiber cloth as well. One thing that’s important is to make sure that the light bulb has been off and cool before you touch it and don’t turn it on right away you want to make sure it’s completely dry before using it.
What is the fastest way to clean baseboards?
Let’s talk about baseboards because you don’t want to break your back, so one of my favorite things to do is use my vacuum cleaner and the extension on it. So I simply just clean the baseboards with this,
In addition to that, I can get the cobwebs down with this extension as well or high to reach places like above doors or above windows and you just simply suck it off and it’s really easy you have one item that cleans everything.
If you don’t have a vacuum cleaner that can do this easily well you can go grab one of these little swifter things at the dollar store and add one of your used dryer sheets to it. Simply wipe your baseboards off with that dryer sheet and the dust clings to it and then when you’re done throw that dryer sheet away.
What is the best way to clean blinds without taking them down?
Let’s talk about blinds you can use your vacuum cleaner extension to just vacuum off your blinds super easily.
What is the easiest way to clean vinyl blinds?
If you don’t have a vacuum cleaner that can use this easily take an Old Sock. Maybe one that you don’t have a match for anymore and you can use this to Simply wipe down the blinds as well the other thing it can do is get right in between each of the blinds for a little extra cleaning. You can also make them damp so that it cleans them even better and the great thing about something like this is you can wash and reuse it again and again.
What is the best way to dust a TV screen?
You can reuse dryer sheets as well to clean monitors computers TVs and more it creates a static cling that pulls that dust off of those
If you don’t want to use something like that you can go back to the sock and you can easily wipe off any of those computer surfaces or TV surfaces with the sock as well as dust anywhere and then once again throw it in the wash and you can reuse it.
Of course, you can always use your vacuum cleaner just take the short extension and go ahead and vacuum all the dust off of all of those surfaces as well.
What is the simple trick to get rid of dust?
Another one of my favorites is a damp cotton cloth that just scoops the dust right off of many surfaces and you can wash and reuse it. Not all fabrics can do this, so make sure it’s cotton. You can also use a damp microfiber cloth if you prefer that one of my favorite things about these is that I can wash them and reuse them again. Then I also like to use coffee filters to dust as well
What is the easiest way to clean ceiling fan blades?
When it comes to ceiling fans we don’t want to wipe them down and get that dust everywhere. I take an old pillowcase slide it on carefully and then pull over the fan blade so that the dust gets trapped inside the pillowcase. I repeat this process and then I can easily wash the pillowcase when I’m done to use again.
What is the easiest way to clean vents?
Let’s talk about all the vents. You have in your home you can use an electronic duster and blow out the dust.
Another option would be to use a damp bristle paintbrush or a foam paintbrush and wipe those vents out the dust comes right out you’ll be amazed. You can wash and reuse it. Another option would be to use a toothbrush. Any of these are great for getting in the nooks and crannies to get those dust particles out.
How often should you dust your PC?
When it comes to all of the computers in our home I like to take some rubbing alcohol and then dip my Q-tip in it and wipe off all the keys. In addition to that, I put a little bit on a microfiber cloth and wipe down all the surfaces to just clean them and get all the dust off of them but then also disinfect them as well.
Don’t forget about your broom as you can clean off cobwebs from the top corners. You can also wrap it in a microfiber cloth and clean baseboards as well with it it also works great on your blinds
I’m also a big fan of these reusable dusters that are at the dollar store and we like these dusting mitts as well you simply use them in dust and then you can throw them in the wash and use them again and again.
Other genius dusting hacks include
- use a mop to clean your baseboards, and ceiling corners.
- add essential oils to your dusting clothes for a lovely smell
- you can use vinegar on your clothes to disinfect them while cleaning and dusting. You can add a little lemon to it if you don’t like the smell of vinegar. You can place the mixture in a spray bottle to keep it handy.
- wrap a pair of tongs with a microfiber cloth to clean your blinds and vents
- you can dust your wood with olive oil
- you don’t have to buy the disposable filters for your Swiffer sweeper, use a fuzzy sock instead
- run your whole house fan and let the air filter do the job to keep the dust down while you’re vacuuming and dusting.
