We have different aids for cleaning. like brushes, vacuums, washers, and dusters. But if we want to deep clean everything, we need to clean these items, too. We often neglect cleaning them to the point that they don’t reach “peak performance” at all. In this article, we teach you how to clean a duster and all the other cleaning supplies you have at home.
Always check that lint trap
Cleaning the lint off the lint trap may not be sufficient in making sure there is no buildup. You need to occasionally deep clean below the lint trap. Using a paint stick, wrap the end with a clean rag.
Take out the lint screen and use the stick and rag to clean the inside of the lint trap. Be sure to dampen the rag so that it can pick up the most lint.
How to clean toilet brush
To keep your toilet brush as fresh as possible, pour a little Pine-Sol or bleach at the bottom of the brush holder. This will help your bathroom to smell clean and will keep germs out of sight and smell.
How to clean vacuum brush and hose
If you’re wondering how to clean vacuum hose or how to clean vacuum brush, the answer is simple: use another vacuum!
Try using another vacuum to clean the filter, hose, and even brush of another vacuum cleaner. You will notice this is an easy fix to avoid the dirt and dust that escapes when you empty the vacuum contents into the trash.
Dustpan broom hack

How to clean dish scrubber
Your dish brush or scrubber has seen a lot of grime. We need to keep them in tip-top shape so that we know our dishes are also the cleanest they can be.
To get a deep clean, simply clean your brush or scrubber with vinegar or pop it into your dishwasher.
Washing machines need a cleaning too
Just like your dishwasher, your washing machine also needs a fresh check once in a while. You can do this easily by using a cleaning tablet and running the washer on the hottest setting.
If you don’t have any on hand, no worries. You can also run an empty cycle with bleach or vinegar.
Time to check the furnace filter
Most homes have forced hot air or air conditioning. The filters that are used quickly build up with dust particles. Make sure you are replacing your filter regularly.
You may want to think about upgrading to a high-efficiency filter, which traps 99 percent of airborne particles such as bacteria, viruses, fumes, and pollen. – The Family Handy Man

Deep clean the inside of your dryer
So you’ve deep cleaned the dryer vent with your paint stick and rag. What about an even deeper clean?

Dishwashers are always clean right? Sadly…nope.
Just because they are cleaning our dirty dishes, doesn’t mean they are going to stay smelling fabulous. Food can get trapped in the filter and along the sides of the dishwasher seal.
