No time to waste, let’s get down to business:

1. Use a cardboard tube to suck up dirt in super narrow spots.

The hard plastic material of the special attachment that comes with the vacuum don’t always do the trick. But a toilet paper tube can be squished to fit and does a great job. You can simply throw it away afterwards.

2. Rub out deodorant stains with dry cleaner hangers.

The Accidental Housewife showed us that the hangers from the dry cleaners are the secret to removing white marks from your clothing. Other options? Use a well-wrung wet washcloth, suggests Carolyn Forte, director of the Cleaning Lab in the Good Housekeeping Institute.

3. Use fewer paper towels.

According to a Tedx Talk from Joe Smith, the way to ensure you only need one paper towel per mess — or bathroom break — is the shake and fold. Follow his lead and you’ll spend less money buying the wasteful towels next year.

4. Clean grimy grout with a DIY solution.

A homecare expert reminds us that mixing 3/4 cup household chlorine bleach with 1 gallon water was a great way to get your grout looking lovely again. Wear rubber gloves and eye protection, then use a stiff brush to apply the mixture to one small area at a time. Let it sit for several minutes, then scrub and rinse.
