Clean

TikTok creator @kenyajacksonathome has advice any of us can follow: don’t try to do everything at once. While a manic deep clean of every room in the house might feel good for a second, it can also leave you exhausted and dreading the next clean. Instead, do a few tiny spots in the house every day. 

TikTok creator @shaynateresetaylor uses a natural method to get rid of weird odors in the kitchen sink. First, fill the sink with baking soda and let it sit. Then pour in some distilled white vinegar. The reaction will break down old grime and food particles for a deep clean without scrubbing.

Sometimes dishes come out of the dishwasher covered in hard water spots that make them look way less clean. TikTok creator @happyhome_withsarah79 gets around this by using vinegar as a rinsing agent along with her usual dishwasher detergent.

You know that tasty tomato sauce you made a while ago? Its leftovers are now sitting in the fridge, and you can’t quite tell if that smell means it’s still good or not. This would never happen in a restaurant — and for good reason. All ingredients are promptly labeled, making it easy for anyone to see what’s still fresh and what’s past its prime. Get in the habit of writing the contents of your leftovers on masking tape with a permanent marker and include the date. It’s a fast and cheap way to keep your fridge clean.

Yes, fall will drop a ton of freshly fallen leaves into your gutters no matter what you do, but getting ahead of that can prevent water damage and other high-cost repairs. Take some time (or, better yet, have a handyman come by) to check your home’s gutters for dead leaves and other potential blockages. If there are any, have them cleared them out so water can properly drain.
