Moms of toddlers are in an unenviable position because they have the biggest cleaning project they’ve ever had in their lives ahead of them. Toddlers are unbelievably messy, but that doesn’t mean you have to say goodbye to your furniture and household bliss.
There are some cleaning hacks you absolutely have to incorporate into your repertoire. This guide is going to show you some of the best cleaning hacks for moms of toddlers.
Baking Soda for Cleaning the Living Room
Baking soda is an alkaline substance that has become extremely effective at keeping things clean. The reason why it works so well is it’s partially abrasive. You can use this on practically anything, but one of the best ways to get tough stains out is to use it on the sofa. It cleans right off, so don’t be worried about the initial white mess.
Did you know that you can even use baking soda on your teeth from time to time?
Moms of toddlers tend to see more paint than they’ve ever seen in their lives. They may be redecorating the baby’s room or they may be introducing them to the magic of finger painting. Either way, that paint is going to ruin your clothes.
Getting paint out can turn into a nightmare, but never fear because by using a shaving razor you can gently remove paint flakes from all the little crevices in your favorite pair of jeans.
Getting Rid of Cup Rings
Toddlers can’t remember a coaster. Your significant other can’t remember to use a coaster either, apparently. So how do you get rid of those horrible rings the cups leave behind? It’s easy because with a hairdryer and a refresher of olive oil they magically disappear.
This works on new cup rings and even old ones. If it doesn’t work the first time, try it again. Sometimes it needs more than one attempt to completely disappear.
Bath time can always be a problem because it leaves unsightly stains on your faucets. Since a faucet is a focal point for any room, everyone will notice. So you have to get rid of these stains. Forget about using a hardcore cleaning solution mix. Take out half a lemon and rub it on the faucet instead. The acidic mix will break down the stain and make it easy to wipe away.
Make the Place Smell Nice
A good deep clean of a room tantalizes all the senses. You can have a room that smells bad alongside one that looks great. Make sure you leave the right impression by using the right scents to complete the job. Here are my top recommendations for making the place smell nice:
- Renuzit Pure Water Blossom & Cucumber Adjustable Cones – I recently started using this scent and I must say that it smells amazing. I received one to review and I loved how it made my bathroom smell so much that I went out and got another one for my boy’s bathroom.
- Renuzit Pure Ocean Breeze Scented Oil – I keep one of these in my kitchen. It doesn’t have a far reach smell wise, but it does make my kitchen smell nice (well when I’m not burning essential oils in my diffuser anyways lol).
- Renuzit Pure White Pear & Lavender Trigger Spray – This fragrance is nothing but the truth. You spray it and it instantly transforms the smell that is in your home. It’s also great for when one of the kids goes number two in the bathroom as it immediately wipes the odor away.
There are many ways to make your home smell like fresh flowers. And these three options are just some of them.
