For me, one of the most loathsome aspects of adulthood is the time I need to set aside for basic household chores. Scheduling an hour of laundry into a weeknight, squeezing kitchen and bathroom cleaning into weekends, tidying my room in between work and evening activities: It’s exhausting. Which is why even cutting several minutes out of a task makes a huge difference.
So, my appreciation for time-saving cleaning tips is tenfold. Watch the video above for quick ways to clean a number of appliances, most of which employ common household supplies. (I’ll certainly be incorporating some of them into my routine.) And if you’ve got a car, you’ll want to check out Armor All Ultra Shine Wash Wipes. They’ll get the outside of your car gleaming, no bucket or hose necessary.
