4 Spring Cleaning Hacks That Will Make Chores a Breeze
Fix a Stinky Kitchen Sink
If your sinks need freshening up, it’s a snap to get them sparkling clean and smelling nice, according to @beautycaboodle. All you have to do is sprinkle baking soda over the drain, add a few drops of your favourite essential oil, then splash in white vinegar. Allow the mixture to fizz and bubble for a bit and then run hot water. It’s like magic! (Check out more brilliant baking soda hacks.)

Dust Your Ceiling Fan
If your ceiling fan needs cleaning, you might reach for a feather duster to get the grime off. But then you run the risk of brushing all the dust off onto your bed or furniture. An easy solution from @stephanieboothrealtor is to use pillowcases to cover the individual blades and wipe them off. (Find out more clever ways to put pillowcases to work all around the house.)
