  1. Use a Pet Hair Remover Brush to Get Rid of Pet Hair — You may have heard of all kinds of wacky tricks online on how to get rid of pet hair. Sure, that video of somebody getting rid of pet hair with a damp rubber glove or a foam curler looks cool, but is it practical? When you’re busy and only have so much time, you need a tool that will get the job done. That’s where a tool like the Uproot Cleaner Pro comes in handy. This pet hair remover brush can be used to remove excess pet hair from your clothing, furniture, and more. Bonus points: It can also be used to actually groom and brush your pet.
  2. Detox the Garbage Disposal with Limes and Lemons — According to Alpha Plumbing, about 30-40 percent of the United States food supply is thrown away every year. In order to help reduce the amount of food waste entering landfills, it’s actually helpful to use garbage disposals to help break down excess food. When you detox your garbage disposal, use small pieces of lemons and limes to help your garbage disposal smell fresh. The garbage disposal can grind and break down the small chunks of lemons and limes.Source: Kuznetsov Dimitriy/Shutterstock.com
  3. Pick Up Little Pieces of Glass with Bread — We all know that grating feeling when we accidentally drop a glass plate or bowl. You’re enjoying your nice glass of wine when all of a sudden, it slips through your hand. Little glass shards are everywhere. You don’t want you or anyone else to accidentally step on these tiny, sharp pieces of glass. Besides getting the dustpan to hope you picked up all the pieces, get a slice of bread. The slice of bread can actually help pick up any last remaining tiny pieces of glass.
  4. Try White Wine for Red Wine Stains — Speaking of wine and wine glasses, did you know you can try using white wine on red wine stains? As soon as the red wine ends up on your carpet, use white wine to dilute the red wine. Blot the area with paper towels. Cover it with salt and watch the wine get drawn out of the carpet fibers. Finish off with a soak in vinegar and water or hydrogen peroxide and dish soap.
  5. Get a Soap Dispenser Dish Brush — If you aren’t already using a dish brush with a soap dispenser built into it, now’s the time to get this handy little tool. Instead of having to keep reaching for the dishwashing soap, it’ll be dispensed as you’re washing your dishes. It’ll help save time and frustration.Source: pikselstock/Shutterstock.com
  6. Run the Dishwasher with Other Things Besides Dishes — You don’t have to just use the dishwasher for dishes. You can use it to clean other household items. Toothbrushes can get pretty dirty over time. So can baseball caps and stove grates. You can put these in the dishwasher and they’ll be as good as new.
  7. Shaving Cream Can Clean Water Stains — Did you know that shaving cream can be used to eliminate water stains? If you’re trying to remove stains from your glass shower, use that. Apply shaving cream on your shower glass and allow it to sit for about 15 minutes. Simply wipe away the shaving cream and your shower glass will be nice and clean.
  8. Make a Cleaning Routine — Sometimes, it just feels way too overwhelming to clean. In between everything else you have to do on your to-do list, the last thing you want to do is detox your garbage disposal or steam your microwave.

One of the most useful cleaning hacks you’ll learn is to make a cleaning routine. It doesn’t have to be a big whole day ordeal dedicated just to cleaning your home. There will be times when you legitimately only have five or 10 minutes to clean. In that case, block out the time to prioritize what’s most important. Use handy tools like a pet hair remover brush to save time. It can be used to groom your dog or cat, but it can also be used like a more eco-friendly tool for removing excess pet fur from any non-knit surface.
