A toilet paper roll, baking soda, or even a slice of grapefruit can leave your home shining. 5-Minute Crafts presents a handful of nifty ways to keep every room in your home tidy in no time — even those hard-to-reach places.

Here’s what you need to do:

  1. Press a toilet paper roll slightly to insert it into the track of the window slider.

  3. Turn the vacuum on and it will suck away all the grime and dust on the window slider.
  4. Your window sliders are now clean.

Things you’ll need:

  • A vacuum cleaner

Here’s what you need to do:

  1. Check if your vacuum cleaner is able to clean the hard-to-reach spots. If it can, follow the steps below.
  2. Insert a bunch of straws inside the nozzle of the vacuum cleaner and turn it on.

Kitchen cleaning hacks

Things you’ll need:

  • A dish-washing sponge
  • A pair of scissors

Here’s what you need to do:

  1. Separate the scrubber side from the dish-cleaning sponge.
  2. Cut the scrubber into vertical pieces.
  3. Cut a small part of the sponge from one edge as shown.
  4. Then cut the sponge with a slight wave — this is where the bottom part of the thumb will rest on the glove.
  1. Now put on the glove and apply hot glue to the fingers on the glove.
  2. Stick the vertical strips of the scrubber on your fingers. Apply some hot glue over the palm-part of the glove.
  3. Stick the sponge over it. Ensure that the wider part is below the index finger and the wavy part rests between the index finger and the thumb.
  4. Now pour some dish-washing liquid over the sponge and clean your dishes with ease.
