Cleaning isn’t something most people enjoy, they would rather be doing ANYTHING else.  How much time have you wasted cleaning?  It’s quite a bit when you think about it.  Think of all the things you could be doing instead of cleaning.

That book you wanted to read?  Do it. Want to hit the spa?  Do it.  Want to just sit on the couch and catch your favorite show?  Do that too.  Spend less time cleaning and more time for yourself with these genius cleaning hacks.

Drying Time Sped Up!

Does it seem like your dryer takes forever to get your clothes dry?  You don’t have to go through that anymore.  Throw a clean dry towel in with your clothes.  Wait 15 minutes and then take it out.  The towel will help absorb some of the moisture, making sure your clothes get dry a lot quicker.

Lipstick stains

We’ve all been there a time or two.  Getting lipstick on your favorite shirt wasn’t in your plans, but it happened.  No more rubbing, rubbing, rubbing.  All that does is spread the lipstick.  Instead spray some hairspray on the lipstick stain and let it sit for a moment (about 10-15 minutes) then barely dab it with a wet washcloth.  Make sure you aren’t rubbing it in.  Now throw it in the wash and Wa-lah no more lipstick.

Ink stain

This has probably happened more times than it should.  Leaving a pen in your pocket and then throwing it in the wash can result in terrible stains.  Instead of tossing it, spray the spots with hairspray or dab on some hand sanitizer.  The sanitizer has to be alcohol based for it to work. Wait 10-15 minutes then re-wash it.

Blood Stains

Oh no, you’ve cut your arm and it got all over your favorite shirt.  No worries, just add some cold water and hand soap to the stain.  If the stain is already dry, it won’t work- you’ll have to use peroxide on the stains instead.

Grass stains

Anybody that has kids know all about grass stains.  I’m pretty sure they might roll around in the grass, who knows.  Use 2 tbsp of peroxide and a small amount of dish washing liquid and apply to stain.  You’ll need a little elbow grease, but the stain will eventually break loose from the fabric.
