Bizarre Cleaning Approaches Nobody Ever Told You About
It’s a common fact that most people don't like that moment when they have to clean their place up. Not that they don’t take pleasure in it. The whole process just takes way too much time they could otherwise spend elsewhere.
Of course, some people love cleaning, others have chosen it to be their job. But we can all agree on one thing - we love the scent of freshness in the air and the look of our flashy windows. It also makes us feel more productive because it really takes big amounts of energy and willpower to perform a task of such magnitude.

Yes, people create such apps and they are becoming more popular with each day.

The “Out of the Ordinary” Approaches to Cleaning
Below you will find a list of some of the most unusual yet best ways to clean furniture, appliances, clothes and other.
1. Freeze your jeans
As ridiculous as this may sound, it works. It looks like this method simulates the cleaning process well enough for you to rely on it. Just be sure to save space for food too, or the other way around.
2. Clean air vents
Clean your vents well and apply car wax on the in- and outsides. This way dust will stick to them instead of being stuck and hard to remove.
Use air-fresheners to clean your mirrors and leave a nice fresh smell while on them. It does the job perfectly. Otherwise, newspapers work too, absent the smell.
4. Kill moss from your roof
If you sprinkle some powdered laundry detergent on your roof it will kill moss and wash it away when the next rain falls. A smart one.
5. Sponges and cutting boards
This sounds simple but have you ever thought of doing it before? To kill bacteria on sponges and cutting boards, put them in the microwave for three minutes. Do this every once in a while to make your kitchen a safer place.
6. Use vodka to clean mold away
Pour some vodka in a spray bottle you are about to throw away. Apply on the “infected” spot, wait for about fifteen minutes and scrub it away with a toothbrush.
7. Black tea
There’s an alternative use of this divine drink. You can clean wooden floors and furniture with it and bring their true color to life once more.
8. Ketchup and mayonnaise
These two are not only used to give a flavor to your food. They have other useful uses. For example, with ketchup, you can remove tarnish from copper and brass cookware. Squeeze some on a cloth and rub it on a pan. Rinse it with warm water, dry it out and see the magic.
Mayonnaise, on the other hand, helps remove crayon marks from wooden surfaces and makes your house plant leaves shine.
It appears not only people love beer. Slugs, snails and fruit flies are also drawn by its aroma. If you use this to your advantage, you can drown them by pouring beer in a jar or a plate and save your garden.
With fresh white bread, you can remove fingerprints from walls and dust from oil paintings.
