What’s your ideal weekend? For some of us, it would include a trip to the mall, a jog at the park, or a lazy day in bed binge-watching TV series on Netflix. Unfortunately, no matter how much we want to just relax on a Sunday, it’s not always possible—since reality catches up and we realize that we actually have a long list of chores we neglected from Monday to Friday! But don’t worry. We may not be able to escape these chores, but we can still make easier. These hacks may not make sense at first, but trust us, you’ll be done with cleaning and back to binge-watching in no time.

Keep your lint roller nearby.


Quickly dust off tables, lamps, and upholstered furniture by running a lint roller over them. When you’re done, simply peel the used layer away. No need for feather dusters or dust pans!

Put dish soap in the blender.


Mix a few drops of dish soap with a cup of water in your dirty blender. Give it a few pulses and watch as it practically cleans itself.

Microwave a bowl of vinegar.


Food splatters and stains all over the inside of your microwave? Pour some vinegar in a bowl and let it heat on the appliance’s highest setting for a few minutes or until it boils. When it’s done, let the microwave cool down before opening the door and wiping away the stains with a sponge.

Cut up a few placemats.


Lining your fridge shelves with placemats will make it way easier to clean up accidental spills. Use whole placemats for the main shelves, and cut up a few to line the smaller compartments. When cleaning day arrives, simply pull out the mat and give it a wipe.

Save your old socks.

Don’t throw your raggedy socks yet! Put one over your hand like a glove and use it to remove the fine dust that collects in between window blinds. Simply pinch a section of the blinds with your sock-wearing hand and wipe off the dust in one quick sweep.
