The question of how to make the process of cleaning easier, and most importantly, more effective has always been important and relevant. Fortunately, there are some little-known tricks you can do to make your clothes and other belongings stay fresher for longer.

GIGGAG has collected some not-so-obvious ideas about cleaning that are surprising and very effective.

1. You Can Disinfect A mattress Using A spray.

How do we make a mattress that we spend a significant part of our lives on fresher, you ask? Well, you can’t wash it. Of course, you could trust this task to a cleaning company, but you can easily clean the upper layer of the mattress with a spray consisting of one part alcohol mixed with two parts water.

Vacuum-clean your mattress and then sprinkle it with the alcohol solution. Let it dry. The alcohol will disinfect the upper layer and kill any bacteria that is making it smell bad.

2. Keep Kitty Litter In the Fridge To keep It smelling Fresh.

Kitty litter absorbs smells very well. If you put it in a box and put the box in the fridge, the fridge will continue to smell fresh.

Even if all the foods in the fridge are fresh, the mix of smells can lead to an unpleasant odor. Silica litters are the best choice for keeping in the fridge, while mineral litters will have no effect. Be sure to avoid wood litter since it tends to have its own smell.

5. Laundry Can Be snow White If you Use A special Pill For The Washing Machine.

To keep your white clothes white or keep something fresh looking, you can soak it in this mixture: mix laundry detergent and bleach in equal amounts along with a pill for washing machines.

Soak your laundry in this mixture for a little time, and then wash it as you normally would. You can use the pill only but then you will have to dissolve it and wash the clothes in really hot water.

9. Ice Cubes Can Help Get Rid Of furniture Marks On the Carpet.

To make the carpet’s surface flat when there are furniture marks on it, you can use ice. Put ice cubes on the perimeter of the damaged spots and leave them there for the night. The water will soon be absorbed by the surface and it will be flat again.

The secret to this method is the fact that the effect is gradual, so if you just pour a little water on the carpet, it won’t work as effectively.

15. Egg Shell Can Be used To clean Vases And Bottles.

15. Egg shell can be used to clean vases and bottles.

You can clean bottles with narrow necks using eggshells. Put eggshells inside a bottle or a vase and add a little detergent. Shake it and leave it be for a little time. Then, pour the mixture out and wash the bottle well.
