By the time you read this you'll probably be thinking about all the spring cleaning tasks in your future. This year you can simplify those tasks using a common rubber glove--really. You already know you can speed through tasks when you wear rubber gloves because A) you aren't concerned about chipping your manicure, and B) you aren't worried about touching something icky.
But more than that did you know gloves can also do this?
1. If you have furry pet then you know how difficult it can be to get all that pet hair off the couch cushions. Did you know a damp rubber glove lifts the hair right off the couch? Then you can simply rinse to clean. Now that's simple!
2. Window blinds are possibly one of the most time consuming things to clean. You'll speed through the job when you slide your damp rubber gloved hand along the slates. Because you can grip both sides of the slat simultaneously you can get the job done in half the time.
3. The tops of things like artwork, picture frames, and even baseboards are the perfect place to run your rubber gloved finger to gather the grime. A quick rinse to clean the glove and you're done.
Here's how you can keep your gloves handy by storing them in an easy to reach location using clothespins.
