There’s no greater feeling than having a clean, neat home. With the amount of time we have been spending at home because of the coronavirus pandemic, living in a clean, organized and comfortable environment has become particularly important.

This can take a significant amount of time, time that you sometimes don’t have or aren’t willing to sacrifice. Luckily, there are ways to cut that time in half and enjoy the squeaky-clean house of your dreams. Read on to find out more!

Use a sock to clean your blinds
If you’ve been using a feather duster to clean the blinds but can’t seem to ever get rid of all the dust, switch your cleaning instrument and opt for an old sock. Yes, you’ve heard it correctly! You’d be surprised to see how efficient a sock can be in eliminating all the dust on your blinds.
Just put the sock on your hand and wipe each blind slat, recommends Lary Dell’Elce, operations manager at cleaning company TidyChoice. The feather duster can spread dust particles into the air whereas these stick like glue to a sock. Try it!
Use rubber gloves to pick up pet hair
Anyone with a pet knows how annoying it can be to find pet hair everywhere, from your clothes to your furniture and anything in between. If you want your upholstery to look its best instead of being covered in pet hair, use rubber gloves to get rid of it. According to Dell’Elce, if you rub a rubber glove to the area you want to clean, you’ll create friction and be able to collect the pet hair easier.
