10 brilliant cleaning hacks for lazy people

Everyone likes to live in a home that is clean, tidy and smells like freshly baked cookies. Some of us, though, are not blessed with the motivation for cleaning. Fortunately, life hacks out exist that make things easy for even the laziest person.
The following 10 tips are ways to prevent extra cleaning and let us be more efficient when we do have to roll up our sleeves and do a little housework.
1. Throw everything in the dishwasher
Okay, not everything. But there are lots of things around your house that are totally safe to put in the dishwasher. The video below shows a few examples.
2. Clean the microwave the easy way.
Remove food spatters and grease from the microwave in a way that is easy, quick and requires no chemicals. The video below shows how.
3. Use stovetop liners.
Stovetop liners save time because they eliminate the need for scrubbing. When they get dirty, simply replace them with new ones. The video shows how easy this process is.
4. Use furniture polish on everything.
Furniture polish makes everything nice and shiny. Check out the video below for some ideas.
5. Line the fridge with plastic wrap.
Save time on cleaning the fridge by lining shelves with plastic wrap. Simply replace it if it becomes dirty.
6. Let the blender clean itself.
You made the milkshake or the smoothie, and now that blender needs cleaning. Don't bother scrubbing it, though. Instead, follow the directions in the video below.
7. Use shower gel instead of soap to clean the shower.
Cleaning the shower is easy if you use gel instead of soap. The video below shows how this is done.
8. Clean your mattress with vodka.
The alcohol in vodka kills bacteria and gets rid of the musty odor a mattress can acquire over time. Check the video below for directions.
9. Clean ceiling fans the easy way.
Instead of swiping at your ceiling fan with a duster and getting all the lint in your face, simply hook an old pillowcase over one blade at a time with the fan off. Press your hands to both sides of the blade, pulling off the case. The dust will be trapped inside.
10. Use a removable oven liner.
Oven liners are worth their weight in gold, because cleaning the oven may be one of the worst jobs ever. Check out how to properly use liners with help from the video below.
