DealDash Cleans: Make the Bathroom Sparkle

DealDash cleans

Cleaning the bathroom isn’t fun, but it must be done. Use the tips from DealDash and get it done faster and easier.

Cleaning your bathroom doesn’t have to be a monumental task. Most people hate cleaning bathrooms because they let the bathroom get a little too messy. Rather than letting things get out of hand, find something small that you can do regularly. Read on for some suggestions from DealDash.

Clean a Little Every Time

Firstly, after washing your hands, you should have a towel that would be perfect for a quick wipe down. Use the cloth or towel after washing your hands to wipe down the counter. Likewise, make it a point to wipe down the shower walls after you’re finished. Even if you’re just using a squeegee to wipe off water droplets and soap bubbles, you’ll be amazed at how much this cuts down on soap scum, too.

Use Innovative Products

Additionally, there are products that make every day use part of the cleaning process. A number of companies make a toilet bowl gel that helps clean with every flush. It’s a simple process where you “stick” the gel to the toilet bowl. When someone flushes the toilet, the water pulls some of that gel off of the bowl and provides a quick rinse before going down the drain. It won’t replace a weekly scrubbing, but it will keep things much cleaner and make it easier for you.

Also, when things get a little out of hand, my favorite solution is to attach a cleaner to a drill so that I can get a little extra “elbow grease” without the additional effort. This is a great solution for showers and tiles. It really helps make the grout sparkle.

Don’t Like Chemical Smells? Try Apple Cider Vinegar!

FInally, if your issue with cleaning the bathroom is the harsh smells, try looking for less abrasive alternatives. Some cleaners are designed to be a little easier to handle. These cleaners typically add a fragrance to cut down on the smell of bleach or whatever chemical you’re using. You can easily find “all-natural” cleaners as well. If you’re looking to save money, apple cider vinegar is a great solution that mixes well with baking soda.

DealDash Cleans: Your Ceiling Fans

DealDash cleans

Ceiling fans can be very tricky to clean. Here are some tips and tricks from DealDash to help you.

Ceiling fans can be tricky to clean for a few reasons – of course, the biggest reason is the fact that they are so high up. If you have vaulted or cathedral ceilings it can be a real problem. The other reason that they can be hard to clean is that they are usually very awkward to clean, you usually end up with the dirt all over you no matter how careful you are. Here are some ideas from DealDash to help you clean those fans.

Use an Old Pillow Case

What? A pillowcase? That’s right! If your ceiling fan is easy to reach with a step stool or stepladder, then an old pillow case is the way to go. If you don’t have any pillow cases that you are willing to sacrifice to the, then pick up one from the thrift store for around $2.

Simply take the pillow case, put it on the fan blade, put one hand on the top and one on the bottom, and pull towards yourself.  The pillowcase will catch all of the dirt, dust, and grime inside. Repeat for the remaining fan blades.

To clean the pillowcase, go outside, flip it inside out, and shake the dust off. After shaking as much of the dust off as you can, pop it into the washing machine with your towels or bedding.

Vacuums Will Work

Hopefully, you have a vacuum with a fan blade attachment. That will make life easier on you.  If you don’t have a specific vacuum attachment for the fan, that’s okay, too. You can use any attachment that has a brush head.

Your vacuum will be the best way to clean your ceiling fans if you have high ceilings. Just put the vacuum attachment or brush attachment on, and extend the vacuum hose or handle. If you need to you can stand on a stepladder, just be careful not to trip over the cord.

Special Fan Cleaning Brush

If neither of the above options appeals to you, or your ceilings are too high, you can get a special fan-cleaning brush. These fan cleaning brushes can be purchased at any big box or hardware store, and are under $20. If you buy one of these, be sure that it’s either the type that you can buy refills for or the kind that can be washed in the washing machine. You don’t want to buy a fan cleaning brush that you just have to throw away when it gets dirty!

DealDash Cleans: Your Baseboards

If you were under the impression that there was only one way to clean your baseboards you would be mistaken. There are a few different ways, and here are some tips and tricks to getting your baseboards their cleanest.

Cleaning your baseboards isn’t fun or glamorous, but it is the sort of task that when you’re finished  makes your home look better in a semi-indescribable way. No one will probably ever come in and compliment you on your clean baseboards, but if your baseboards aren’t clean your guests might notice, or just have a general sense that your house isn’t as sparkling clean as it could be.

Today I cleaned my baseboards, and I did it the old-fashioned way – I handed my son a rag and a basin full of soapy water and told him to get scrubbing! However, he wasn’t doing that great of a job, so I started doing some research online of better ways to get your baseboards clean. Here are my results:

  • You can use a tub of Lysol wipes. That way you don’t have to do anything with the wash basin or the washcloth. Just pull one out, wipe the baseboards until the Lysol wipe is dirty, throw it away, and repeat. This way is what I would suggest if you have some last-minute guests and want to make the main living area a little bit more presentable.
  • Fabric softener sheets! You can save up used fabric softener sheets from drying your clothing and use them to dry wipe your baseboards. This only works if your baseboards are just dusty – it won’t work if you have actual dirt from people’s shoes or from pets or children making a mess.
  • And lastly, my new favorite way to clean the baseboards…Magic Erasers! I am a big fan of Magic Erasers for other cleaning projects, but I had never thought to use them to clean the baseboards. It’s basically the same concept as using the washcloth, but it works so much better, and it has the added bonus of saving time, because you can clean up any marks on the walls while you are cleaning the baseboards instead of making it into two separate cleaning projects. Just use your regular wash basin that you would have used with your washcloth, but put in about half as much water and dish soap as you would normally put in. Then just clean as you normally would with the washcloth, but you will significantly reduce your need to scrub, and they will come out looking awesome!
