Starting a new year is always a great way to get organized. We get a fresh new year and a fresh start in every facet of our lives. It is really refreshing and uplifting to feel clean, organized and your mind can even think more clearly. Today I have Three Cleaning Tips To Save You Time & Money.
If you know me at all, you know I like easy and quick-and if I can save money doing it, I am set!
AND the benefit to today’s post, is that 23+ of my best blogging friends are sharing THEIR ideas, too.
Okay, tip Number One Three Cleaning Tips To Save You Time & Money is to add a dry bath towel to your dryer.
Sounds crazy, but it works. The towel will absorb moisture from your wet, clean clothing and in turn will take less time to dry. You will see a significant difference in your drying time. That means less electricity and/or gas. Sounds GREAT to me!
Tip Number Two of my Three Cleaning Tips To Save You Time & Money: In-between washing your sheets, spray them with a fabric spray to get that fresh smelling feeling in your bedroom.
I use my own home made Lavender water. It smells like we have fresh sheets in-between washing’s. AND is is SUPER easy to make.
The recipe is here:
Now for Tip Number Three of my Three Cleaning Tips To Save You Time & Money:
Do you have real dusty plants? It seems to happen so quickly, doesn’t it?
This lovely plant is in our master bedroom. Not very appealing, is it?
Now, for the tip…Pour milk in a small bowl. (In this case I used almond milk) I have used just about every kind of milk. From whole milk to non-fat, and it works perfectly every time.
Dab a lint free cloth in your milk. Then carefully wipe each leaf. (Only use this method for REAL plants)
Your plants will be really clean, look fabulous and shiny. PLUS have a healthy glow.
Thanks for joining me so I could share you Three Cleaning Tips To Save You Time & Money. I hope you will be able to implement them into your cleaning schedule this coming year.

Great tips Meegan, I’ve been doing the milk treatment on my plants for years and it’s great. Thanks for the Lavender Water recipe – I’ve been buying mine and this will save me $$$$.
I just love the smell of lavender! Thanks for the recipe for the spray and the cleaning tips! Happy New Year Meegan!

The leaf cleaning tip is awesome, Meegan! I love houseplants but never seem to be able to get the leaves clean. Thanks so much for sharing.
thank you for all the wonderful tips, happy new year!
OK wow I’ve not ever heard to use milk on my dusty plants! Definitely trying that Meegan! xxoo
Angie @ Postcards from the Ridge says
These are great tips, Meegan. I never thought of putting a dry towel in the dryer with the wet clothes. Genius! And I’m going to try your lavender spray too. Houseplants don’t survive in our house long enough to collect dust, but that’s a great tip as well. Happy New Year, sweet friend!
Doreen @ Hymns and Verses says

Nice tips! A good addition to my new cleaning plan for the year. As this year began, I decided to change my cleaning routine (a new year – a new plan). Like the idea for cleaning houseplants with milk very much.Your post gave me some quite good ideas for my new checklists. Thanks for sharing!
