Here's just a small sample of the tips included:
Dust and other debris often collect in hard to-reach corners, such as behind large appliances, but you can reach easily into these corners with a yardstick. Make a yardstick" duster" by covering the end with a sock,
secured with rubber bands, or by fastening a small sponge to the end of the yardstick with staples or rubber bands.
You can eliminate tiny scratches on glass by polishing the affected areas with toothpaste.
A portable blow dryer can soften wax that has dripped onto wooden surfaces. Wipe away the wax with a paper towel, then rinse the area with a mixture of vinegar and water. Dry thoroughly.
You can get stale odors out of sponges by washing them in the dishwasher, or by soaking them overnight in a bowl of bleach and rinsing them well the next morning.
Make an efficient cleaning apron from a compartmented shoe bag by attaching strings and filling the pockets with rags, polishes, brushes, and other lightweight supplies.
Old toothbrushes can be put to good use as hair dye applicators, or as cleaning brushes for silverware, combs, and typewriter keys.
To clean your radiators, hang a damp cloth behind the radiator, then blow on the radiator with a hair dryer to force hidden dirt and dust onto the damp cloth.
An automobile snow brush is perfect for cleaning under a refrigerator.
If you're tired of buying new dust mops because the old ones get dirty so quickly, cover your mop with an old nylon stocking. When the stocking gets soiled, simply discard it and replace it with another.
When a spray bottle's suction tube doesn't reach the liquid because most of the liquid has been used up, drop marbles or pebbles into the bottle until the level of the liquid rises enough to cover the end of the tube.
Want to dust furniture quick as a flash? Dampen two old cotton gloves or socks with furniture polish, slip them over your hands and then dust with both hands.
Worn-out cotton sweat socks-particularly those with terry-lined feet-make excellent dusting mitts.
Instead of buying dust cloths chemically treated to "attract" dust, make your own from cheesecloth. Dip the cloth in a solution of 2 cups of water and 1/4 cup of lemon oil and allow it to dry before using.
Paint brushes make excellent dusters for small or hard-to-reach areas. Flick them along door jambs, around windows, and into corners where dust cloths won't fit.
To avoid snagging or harming delicate fabric when dusting ruffled or pleated lamp shades, use an old shaving brush or a baby's hair brush. The bristles are soft and effective.
