Be lazy — just don't look like you are.

1. Yes, you CAN clean your house just by walking around.

You know those sickeningly cozy socks that make you feel like a baby? Well, put those things on. Walk around your house. Take them off. You just dusted your apartment by simply having feet.


9. Use tape to pick up crumbs, or sequins, or glitter — or whatever it is that you've dropped on the floor.

Tape. It's a fantastic resource. It's ALSO great for getting pet hair off of stuff like pillows and comforters.

10. Get your house an anti-microbial doormat and maybe institute a shoes-off policy.

I mean, come on, shoes off? It's the best! Plus this doormat will help you get rid of dirt and odors BEFORE they get in the door.

Get your own from Amazon for $61.42.


12. Keep your cleaning products in the area where you use 'em.

In other words, keep your bathroom cleaning products in the bathroom, your shower cleaning products in the shower, and your kitchen stuff in the kitchen. You'll be more likely to use them that way.

13. Use liquid shower gel (not soap) to avoid soap scum buildup in your tub.

"The fats and oils in soaps create problems with soap scum," Lynn Marie Bower, cofounder of the Healthy House Institute, tells Housekeeping Channel. But because body wash is technically a detergent, it's specifically formulated to prevent gross crud from caking up in the shower.


16. You're probably cooking a lot of food in your microwave (same), and it's probs pretty gross. But that's easy to clean.

Just mix two cups of water with a half a cup of vinegar and microwave it on high power for three minutes. When it's done you should be able to wipe your 'wave down, and there you go.


20. But if you don't have a dishwasher, you can clean a dirty stainless steel pan by simply filling it with water (and a dab of soap) and heating it up on the stove again.

The heat will help remove stuck-on food from the bottom of the pan and make it much easier to scrub everything off.

21. If your gas burners are covered in grease, clean 'em with a little ammonia. THAT'S ALL.

Pick up burners. Put burners in bags with 1/4 cup of ammonia. Seal bags. Let sit overnight. Wipe burners with sponge. DASSSSS IT.
