When I started this blog five years ago it was as a hobby, my little corner of the internet to share things that I was doing and tips I had found that made my life easier (and therefore made me a “happier homemaker!”) Over the years I’ve loved hearing from readers who have benefited from things I have shared so I thought I’d round up today ten of my all time top cleaning hacks. These are the tips and tricks that really save time and offer solutions to problems that you may have given up on. Which one will you try first?
