When washing windows try wiping the cleaner off one way – top to bottom – on one side of the window and the other – right to left – on the other. This way if you happen to see a streak you will know which side it is on.

Let cleaning solutions sit on the dirt for a minute. This helps to make sure it works and the dirt and grime come up.

Wipe down mini-blinds with a damp fabric softener sheet. This eliminates the static that causes dust to stick. The same trick works for TV and monitor screens.

Before filling a plastic container with a tomato based sauce, rub the inside of the container with vegetable oil first. This will help to prevent the container from being stained by the tomato sauce.

After you finish washing the dishes in your sink at night, wipe out the sink with an antibacterial wipe. This will kill any germs and removes things that can cause odors.

Wipe a stainless steel sink with vinegar on a cloth to make the sink really shine.

Believe it or not cheap hairspray will often get pen ink off of clothing and upholstery.

I'm new to the site but I hope to add a little expertise in the forum. I'm a stay at home mom from the midwest and I've done my fair share of cleaning. In Indianapolis house cleaning services come few and far between and I am a huge control freak. I like to use all types of different methods to get the house spic and span! I hope you can all benefit from me!

Cool Re: House Cleaning Tips

For the best results when cleaning windows, mirrors and glass surfaces, do not clean them in direct sunlight. If the cleaner dries too fast before you can wipe if off, you're more likely to have streaky windows.
