There are many people who really cannot stand doing household cleaning, also because of the fact that there is less and less time available to dedicate to this and other chores.

However, this is an activity that you really cannot ignore, that is why the need arises to learn how to do household chores well and in less time.

If at home you feel the pressure of all the things that need to be cleaned but you do not know how to deal with it, here are some tricks to manage this problem in less than no time.

Here is how to clean the dirtiest areas in the bathroom

Shower curtains: to get rid of the mold and stains that form on shower curtains, just immerse them in a solution of water and hydrogen peroxide in equal parts. 
Toothbrushes: a large number of germs and bacteria are deposited on the bristles. To remove them, immerse the toothbrush from time to time in a glass of white vinegar, then rinse it thoroughly under running water. 
Sponges: Sponges also need careful cleaning due to being loaded with bacteria. Remove the bacteria by soaking sponges in hot water and vinegar for one hour, then rinse them.

Hydrogen peroxide is an optimal ingredient for cleaning the bathtub. It will allow you, in fact, to restore the splendor of the interior walls as when it was new. Pour a quantity into a spray bottle, moisten the walls, leave for an hour and a half, then rinse.

There is also another method to clean the bathtub, which uses natural ingredients. You can clean the bathtub by applying baking soda, letting it act for a few minutes and then pouring vinegar over it. Scrub the surface with a sponge, then rinse.

If you have some citric acid in the house, you can also whiten bathtub walls by using this ingredient. Just dilute the white powder with water until you get a paste. Spread it on a sponge, rub it on the walls, wait 20 minutes then rinse with warm water

Do you want to make the toilet shine? Use a mixture of mustard powder, citric acid, and cornstarch in equal parts, diluted lightly with water --- this will eliminate even the most stubborn limescale deposits!

Here is a trick to keep your bathroom clean, perfumed, and sanitized.

Make your own DIY effervescent toilet bombs for the bathroom! They are very useful and easy to make! Here are the ingredients: 

4.5 oz (130 g) of bicarbonate of sodium 
1 oz (30 g) of citric acid 
half a teaspoon of vinegar 
a tablespoon of 6% hydrogen peroxide 
15-20 of essential oil of your choice 

In one bowl add the powders and in another bowl the liquids. Pour the liquids into the powders, add the drops of essential oil and mix with a whisk. Create the "bombs" with a simple ice tray, popsicle mold, or with two spoons, let the mixture dry for 6 hours, then place them in a closed container.

A secret to keep the tile joints clean

To clean the tile joints thoroughly and keep them clean longer, what you need to use is a white paraffin candle. Rub one in the joins between the tiles to prevent dirt from settling in again. 

Alternatively, you can also create a mix of water and bicarbonate, and rub it in the joints with an old toothbrush. Leave for a few minutes, then rinse. 

If, instead, you want to avoid rinsing, you will need to prepare a solution with water and hydrogen peroxide in a 2:1 proportion. 

Do your tiles need extraordinary cleaning? Then, wash them with a mixture of hot water and citric acid, then rinse.

In washing machines, mold accumulates in the rubber gasket that seals the door. Here is how to eliminate it.

Ingredients: 

4 teaspoons vinegar (400 ml) 
5 teaspoons of baking soda (25 g)
4 tablespoons of water (60 ml)  
a sponge 

Mix the water and baking soda in a bowl and pour the mixture into the detergent dispenser. Pour the vinegar into the washing machine drum and start a normal washing cycle. When the cycle has ended, clean the rubber gasket with a sponge, and let it dry by leaving the door open.

Remove grease from gas stove burners

Do you know that you can remove grease spots with an eraser? Keep one on hand to remove at least the smaller grease spots.  

In case of larger areas and stubborn dirt, you can use lemon juice. Squeeze a lemon and pour the juice directly on the grease spots, then put slices of lemon on the larger grease spots and wait 15 minutes. Rinse and dry with a soft, clean cloth.

The most effective method to clean the oven

For this trick, you will need ammonia and water. 

Heat the oven at  300°F (150°C), then turn it off. Fill a container that is resistant to high temperatures with water and place it on the lower oven shelf and another heat-resistant container of ammonia on the upper shelf. Close the oven and let it cool overnight. The next day add a few drops of dish soap and a half cup of warm water to the container with ammonia and use this solution to remove the dirt with the help of a sponge. Lastly, rinse with water. 

To clean the oven without using chemicals, you can also use just white vinegar. Pour vinegar on the stains and leave it to work for about 20 minutes with the door closed. Remove the stains by rubbing lightly with a cloth or a brush. Rinse thoroughly with water.

Cleaning a mattress

The best method to keep a mattress clean, free of dust mites and dust, is to clean it every time you change the sheets. To do this, just vacuum the mattress surface with the upholstery attachment. 

To eliminate odors, however, you will need to sprinkle baking soda on the mattress, let it act for about an hour, then remove it with a vacuum cleaner.

Instead, to remove recent sweat stains you can treat them with a solution of hydrogen peroxide and liquid detergent in a 2:1 ratio.

Carpet or rug stains are no longer a problem

To eliminate recent wine, grass, grease or other stains, you can try to treat them with a solution of hot water and detergent powder. Scrub, rinse, and then treat them with water and white vinegar. 

In particular, for grass stains, a saline solution is very effective (one teaspoon of salt per 2.5 tablespoons of water [200 m]).
