Tiny home, big clean.

4. Clean your oven with ingredients you already have in your kitchen.

Read more about how this works — and why you should substitute water for the white vinegar — here.

6. Or, polish your stainless with Pledge — it'll make everything v. v. shiny.

This works on almost everything stainless in your home, including water faucets (and tiny mini-fridges). From here.

16. Use a pumice stone to clean under the rim of your toilet bowl.

You can find them at your hardware store, or here for $4.99. Alternatively, you can use duct tape and vinegar, but that technique requires that the toilet be out of commission for about 8 hours — which wouldn't work if you only have one bathroom.

19. Use a dish cleaner filled with dish soap to clean your cabinets and baseboards.

Same idea as cleaning with a toothbrush, but it covers a much larger surface area. So everything will go faster. Just make sure to finish by wiping the soap off with a wet wash cloth. Read more about it here.

23. Shower your trash can.

You probably don't have a yard, or a hose, to use to clean your trash can. So spray it down with some vinegar (or cleaning product of your choice), let it sit, then rinse — in your shower.

28. Reserve an entire morning to clean your mattress.
