1. Deep cleaning hack to clean your microwave fast.

Would you like to know how to clean out your microwave in a very fast and efficient way?  If you answered “yes”, then this particular deep cleaning hack takes no time at all.

All you have to do is cut a lemon in half, squeeze all the juice contents into a bowl, and toss those lemon ends in the same bowl, adding half a cup of water. Place the bowl in the microwave for approximately three minutes, to help add moisture to release sticky stains. 

Give it a quick wipe to get rid of all the grim, and presto, your microwave is clean!

2. Deep cleaning hack to clean your shower head fast.

Since we all use our showers to clean our bodies every day, the bathroom always takes the cake when it comes to deep cleaning day.

But have you ever wondered if you needed to clean the showerhead itself? If not, don’t worry, there’s a really simple way to deep clean it that takes no time at all. 

All you need is a zip lock bag, an elastic band, and white vinegar. Fill the bag with one part vinegar and one part water and wrap the bag around your shower head, using the elastic band to secure it tightly, so your shower head gets fully immersed. Leave it immersed sitting there for two hours. 

Once the time has passed, take the bag off of the showerhead and it should run clean with much better pressure than before.

Doing laundry is not on a lot of people’s fun lists (especially when it comes to mildew-smelling laundry), so knowing a few laundry hacks is essential.  

Since our clothes absorb a ton of smells, even when we don’t even notice it, try tossing in some white vinegar (half a cup) in the wash with your usual laundry detergent.

Vinegar is such a great cleaning product and it has the ability to clean out smelly clothes, that otherwise, a simple laundry detergent would just mask.

This is a genius deep cleaning hack when it comes to not breaking your back while scrubbing off that dark mildew, that cakes all-around your bathtub or better yet having to re-caulk your entire tub (which is such a hard job and way too much work!).

So let’s get your tub clean fast! All you need is some cotton coil (here) and some bleach. Soak the cotton coil in bleach and place it all around the edges and corners of your bathtub (usually where the caulking goes). Press the coil down, with some pressure with your fingers wearing rubber cleaning gloves, and let it set in for a couple of hours.

Once you lift the coils off, rinse all the cracks and corners of the tub with hot soapy water. Your bathtub mildew should be as good as gone!

5. How to deodorize your sofa deep cleaning hack.

If you have a fabric-covered sofa and it’s in need of a refresh? Then this hack does the trick.

First, sprinkle baking soda on the fabric so it will relieve odors. Use a good heap amount to cover all the surface area, as baking soda helps release smells and stains that are left in the sofa’s fabric. Let it set in for two hours. 

Then mix together one teaspoon dishwashing liquid, one teaspoon of white vinegar, one cup of warm water, and one teaspoon of baking soda. Mix well and then grab a dry cleaning cloth. Dip the cloth in the cleaning solution and gently massage all the visible stains that you see.

Once you’ve elbow greased as much as you can, vacuum up the rest of the baking soda and allow the couch to dry to reveal a brand new and odor-free sofa.

6. The deep cleaning hack to clean up your dusty lampshades, without leaving marks.

Usually, through time, lampshades collect all sorts of dust, debris and that’s usually because a lot of people never even “think” to clean them. 

But if you have a handy roller lint in arm’s reach, you can combat those dusty shades without swatting dust all over your home. Just use a basic lint roller to collect all that leftover dust by simply rolling it all over the dust and hair that you see. You’ll get dust-free lampshades in minutes without the fuss.
