There are 11 spots in your home that I bet you rarely clean in your living room, kitchen and even your bedroom. From stove hoods to tech, I'm going to show you what they are and how to get them sparkling in just minutes.
You don't really need anything fancy. Just grab some old newspaper or clean coffee filters and a spray bottle full of distilled vinegar.
Spray the window evenly with vinegar. Let it sit for a few seconds, then wipe the window down with a wad of newspaper or a coffee filter.
Why not use paper towels? I find that most paper towels leave behind lint.
The hood over your stove can get grimy from splashes of grease and dust buildup.
The best way I've found to clean it is to scrub the hood down with wads of newspaper. The newspaper soaks up the grease and the dust rolls off in little bits that can be swept up.
If you look under the hood, there will be a filter that prevents grease from going inside the hood's vent.
More than likely, it's a greasy mess, like the one above. Slide it out or unclip it, 'cause you're about to change that.
Fill your sink with boiling water, 1/4 cup baking soda and a couple drops of dish soap. Swish the water around with the end of the filter and then drop it in, being careful not to splash hot water on yourself.
Let it sit for about 30 minutes, then give it a good scrub with an old toothbrush or plastic brush. Rinse the filter with hot water and let it air dry before putting it back.
Your dehumidifier probably has collected a wide variety of mold spores, dust and other air contaminants.
