Keeping a clean house throughout the winter is a lost cause. However, the moment you wake up and find that the birds have come back out, everything is a bit greener outside, and your sinuses are clogged to the brim. Look around and you'll see that there's dust in places you never thought dust would accumulate in. You feel confused, you feel alone. Suddenly, you look at your phone and discover this list. You are filled with determination.
Using an Onion to Clean Your Grill
If your grill grates have the wintertime blues, cheer them up with half an onion! If you heat your grill up and rub a halved onion on the grates, the sugars and water in the onion will essentially "deglaze" your grates. The evaporating water will get under the built-up grime and pull the nastiness right off of your previous grills.
Lemon/Vinegar Microwave Cleaner
If you love cleaning caked on gunk off of the inside of your microwave, then ignore this hack completely. If you hate cleaning your microwave like the rest of us, then this hack is for you. Microwave a bowl of lemon and water to soften the gunk on the inside of your microwave. The lemon will shine the inside as well!
