Top 5 Household Cleaning Hacks


Household cleaning hacks are easy cleaning tips for the home. Household cleaning hacks are not shortcuts, but DIY cleaning or tidying up on a regular basis.

Household cleaning hacks (a.k.a. housework hacks, or cleaning tips and tricks) are bits of housework any savvy cleaner does daily.

Angela Brown says easy house cleaning tips save time and energy as you clean and tidy your space. You don’t have to be a household hacker to enjoy these.

Today’s Ask a House Cleaner sponsors are Turnover Cleaning Tips. (You’ll find household hacks for Airbnb, VRBO and short-term rentals.) My Cleaning Connection (a hub for cleaning tips and hacks.)

  1. All good ideas but one (my personal ick!) I wouldn’t use the sponge used to clean the sink and the toilet.

    1. Thank you for sharing your feedback and thanks for watching the video.🙂

  2. My brother bought me a microwave lid it works great! Angela thanks for all u do!

    1. So glad to read your comment about the microwave lid. It’s such a timesaver : )

  3. Yes! I’ve learned that if I get something new to get rid of something keeps me away from hoarding lol

    1. Thank you for sharing. Sending hugs. 🤗

  4. Great! Idea. I need to try this.

    1. Thanks for watching the video. Let me know how it works out when you try it. 🙂

  5. I just put my shower liner in the washer last week n hung it back up to dry along with hanging a new outer pretty shower curtain 😉 n after waiting so long ( I don’t know why 😓) I finally bought some microfiber cloths n I always do a daily quick cleaning of my sink n toilet BUT EVERY TIME I WASH MY HANDS I’VE GOT TO WIPE THE SINK N FACET DRY BCUS I LOVE THE SHINE THE MICROFIBER CLOTH LEAVES! 😘. I’ve also started scrubbing the kitchen floor (I can only do sections at a time everyday on my hands n knees) but I’m getting up so much dirt n grim from using “floor wax” for 3yrs n it’s getting AMAZINGLY SO CLEAN n looking new now it’s put me in the “LET’S GET THIS DONE HAPPY MOOD” to do EVERYTHING! Lov your tips n suggestions, they are AWESOME n I Thank you for sharing. 👍🙋😉✌💜

    1. I love this! Thanks so much for writing in to share your exciting housecleaning projects. Keep me posted on your future cleaning projects! 🤗

  6. OMG, I’m trying the shower curtain/vinegar/washing machine trick tomorrow.

    1. Let me know how it turns out! 🤗

  7. We call the one touch system OHIO. Only Handle It Once. LOL

    1. That’s a great tip! Thank you for sharing ❤️

  8. Great hacks. Now if I could only get my family to follow suit. I end up cleaning up after everyone else. “Frustrating” doesn’t begin to describe it.

    1. I hope you got your family to follow suit! Thank you for your feedback and thanks for watching the video.🙂

  9. I read about the one touch method months ago. Wow what a difference it has made for me. I was surprised at how extra work I was making for myself.

    1. Thank you for your feedback and thanks for watching the video.🙂

  10. Maintanance mode when in comes to cleaning is the key👍💕

  11. How do you clean a painted pitted brick wall?

  12. Do not put plastic shower curtain liners in the washing machine! This causes damage- rips, tears, etc. It is more cost effective to purchase a fabric liner. They look better and wash like clothing. Plastic liners a cheap looking anyway.

    1. Washing my cheap plastic liner in the washing machine works totally fine.

    2. Leigh Sutherland Hi, I’ve always used a clear “thick” liner on the inside of my shower n of course a nice material one on the outside n I always put the clear liner in the washer with a couple towels n it always comes out like new, so maybe it might be the cheaper liners that tear or rip, in that case I would be sure to just buy a new thick liner.( I’ve got to have a liner to keep the water in the shower n tub) as to not have to put the pretty outside curtain in to drip dry in the tub n not on the floor. Hope that makes sense, I was
      ” just saying” 👍🙋😏✌💜

    3. That’s exactly what I wanted to say! I have my ikea fabric shower curtain for already 10 years. I just wash it in the washing machine sometimes and it still looks like a new one.

  13. Shower curtain hack..yayyy
    They get nasty

    1. Yes, they do! Yuck! Thank you for watching the video. 🙂

  14. You are the best! Thanks for the shower curtain tip.

    1. Thank you so much for your kind words. And thanks for watching. 🙂

  15. This is such a great video. Thank you so very much. Where have you been during my entire life?

    1. You’re welcome! And thank you for watching the video. 😊

  16. Thanks so much for sharing , , ,
    Can you advise WHAT/HOW to clean the MICE droppings inside my kitchen cabinets please. Unfortunately I do not have the means of hiring a professional cleaning service
    after being forced to early retire due to my eyes macular degeneration after working like worn-out grinder. I did not have the time to notice the seriousness of mice in my house until ending up spending all day in the home now a days being forced to early retirement at 64.
    But, I just got overwhelmed when found the mice droppings all over inside the kitchen cabinet.
    Just got spraying inside with all the utensils in them Clorox-Bleach spray to chaise out the mice & hoping to disinfect the gems fm the mice dropping.
    When I decide to finally start scrub-clean all the kitchen-cabinets (just bottom ones only; thanks GOD for that, , , ) I will have to kneel-down to almost crawl in to ea bottom cabinet to
    scrub-clean bottom, sides & top as well I think. I have no help since forced to divorce about 30 yrs ago, I made up my mind to never again to get involved till my LORD takes my soul.
    By chance any advice will you be able share in this case please ? 
    (Anyway appreciate your teaching on house-cleaning VIDs always ! ) 🙂

    1. She’s made a video on that.

  17. Angela!!! The haks Is great 👍 thank you for sharing!!! Today will try before sleep instead of put clothes down will hookup ✋🏼

  18. I know everyone loves the shower glass squeegee. My boyfriend is an installer of shower doors for a glass company. He says squeegees scratch, and that there are special squeegees that don’t scratch. Could you investigate and clarify what in the world he is talking about. Of coarse he doesn’t know a non scratch squeegee brand. So I use a microfiber. 😑

  19. I was originally taught to clean with the “cloth and sink of soapy water” method so cleaning the inside of the microwave was a pain in the ass. But after working with a company I learned the “spray and wipe” method and oh boy is it 1,000 times easier. Just hose the microwave down with all purpose spray or degreaser of choice and wipe away. The steam bowl method mimics this but this way you don’t have to wait forever and deal with a hot bowl.

    1. I throw in a wet rag with some dawn and put it in the microwave for 20 seconds. Easy to clean.

  20. Awesome hacks. I have a question, how do I properly clean the inside of the oven? Thank you.

    1. Check out these 2 videos:

  21. What would you recommend when a customer follows you through every room and hovers over your shoulder every second and literally breaths down your neck?

    1. OMG!!🤣🤣 sorry for laughing but you got me on this one

  22. Love the one touch system. Thanks for sharing.

  23. how do you recommend cleaning berber carpets?
