This is not only there to remove lint from our clothes, but can also be skillfully used for the liberation of bread crumbs and Co. from our handbag. Also backpack, sports bag and baby bag do not want to be forgotten.

4. Clean and disinfect the sink

5. Wash towels
Towels and tea towels are often used for a long time, although they should have been washed long ago. Often they lose themselves in the sports bag or were put together while still wet. That cries for an intensive wash! And that's done in no time. Just go to your apartment from, especially of course bathroom and kitchen, collects all towels and tea towels and washcloths, sorted by color and provides the washing machine (which basically does all the work anyway) to 60 degrees.

6. Clean and disinfect the toothbrush
Just had a cold or nasty herpes had? Then you should definitely deep-clean your toothbrush. One does not even believe what multiplicity of bacteria gathers in this little brushhead. If your toothbrush (manual or electric) is not older than a month or has crooked bristles, it should be regularly disinfected. All you need is a mug in which you give antiseptic mouthwash, so much that the head of the toothbrush is covered. After allowing it to work for a few minutes or overnight, remove it, rinse it with water and put it in a place to dry. Since you basically have all things in the household anyway, this means almost no effort.
7. Free the shower head of lime
Every day several liters of water flow through the shower head. No wonder, then, that limescale builds up here. The site is very common, but you come because of the protruding nubs but not close to the actual deposits. There is a great trick that makes the work almost by itself. Simply turn the shower head off the hose. Then fill a freezer bag with vinegar essence and lemon juice, dip the shower head into the bag, so that the head is completely covered with the mixture. But beware, baking soda has no business here. Then you close the bag with a rubber and put the whole thing in a bucket. Acted overnight, you rinse your head the next day with water and screw it back to the hose. So that no residues remain from the vinegar, you should allow the head to run through with water; finished! The result: a showerhead that looks like new!
