As a mum of 3, I have built up an arsenal of hacks in the home to save me time, space and cleaning whilst also saving me money as I now use a lot of pantry cupboard items as cleaning products. Today I share with you some of the thrifty home hacks from Bissell that aim to help around the house when it comes to toys, stains, cleaning and picking up broken glass.
Did you know for instance, that lemon is the king of cleaners. Not only can you use it to get your taps clean and shiny by putting half a lemon squished into them for around half an hour before rinsing and buffing, but it can be used to clean your microwave roof also. Simply use a damp cloth with water and lemon juice to wipe the area clean. The lemon will help to clean the area as well as sanitising the microwave.
Fizzy pop is a pain in the bum to remove, and being a cola lover and very clumsy, I am forever scrubbing it up from the floor with no avail. With the Bissell hacks it makes cleaning a less hard work as there is no scrubbing needed. Just use a roller towel to absorb the excess soda then pour a little Soda Water on a cloth to dilute spilled liquid then vacuum the excess.
The 4 hacks in the photo above are my favourites though. I have 3 boys, 3 messy messy boys and so knowing that plastic toys (such as figures and Lego, none electrical toys) can easily go through the dishwasher, saves me loads of time as I now don't need to stand at the sink washing them all by hand.
Broken glass is not only annoying but can be dangerous also when having a little one crawling around. Bissell makes picking up glass the best thing sliced bread, literally in fact as, to pick up shards of glass, just press a slice of bread into the floor and this will pick up any rouge fragments.
I love these tips and how easy it makes cleaning and saving time at home. And to help with the cleaning a little more, Bissell are offering one of my readers the chance to win a clean up bundle worth £30.
