According to The Express, proud homeowners spend an average of 11 hours scrubbing, mopping and vacuuming their homes in time for spring/summer. Here are six simple cleaning tips to get the job done a whole lot quicker:

Banish those Carpet Stains

Bedroom with grey bed. Grey Bedroom. Sat against a board and batten wall, a dark gray linen curved headboard with a nailhead trim is dressed in a white duvet accented by a striped gray lumbar pillow. The bed is flanked by gray distressed nightstands with brass corners and topped with white adjustable lamps sat on a gray wool rug lit by a dark nickel sphere pendant light. #greybed #bed #bedroom Milk and Honey Home via Rue Magazine.

Is that carpet stain driving you crazy? There may just be a way to get rid of it! Make up a mixture of water and vinegar, transfer to a spray bottle and lightly mist the area. Lay a damp cloth over it and use a hot iron on the steam setting to press on the rag for about 30 seconds. For stubborn stains you may want to repeat again.


Clean up your Microwave

White and pale gray kitchen. White and gray kitchen features a white center island topped with gray and white marble fitted with a white porcelain sink and a satin nickel gooseneck faucet lined with gray backless counter stools with rush seats. A zinc French kitchen hood with corbels stands over a gray mini subway tile backsplash and a stainless steel stove. #whitekitchen #palegraykitchen #graykitchen #kitchen  L. Kae Interiors

Cleaning the microwave is always a horrible job so if you’re tired of battling those food splatters inside then try this. Simply fill a microwaveable bowl with half vinegar and half water and place it in the microwave on high for a few minutes. Leave for 10-15 minutes before opening the door and sticking on your Brosch Direct gloves to wipe it up.


Remove Water Rings with a Hairdryer

Nothing beats those nasty water marks on your brand new coffee table! Before you decide to replace it, have you tried the hairdryer trick? Set your hairdryer on a medium heat and hold it about two inches away from the water ring. Whilst still applying the heat, use a cloth to lightly buff away the mark until the blemish disappears! You can use some oil to recondition the wood afterwards.


Say Goodbye to your Greasy Oven

Tow tone kitchen. Two tone ivory and gray kitchen. Stunning gray and ivory contemporary kitchen boasts a gray island outfitted with gray shaker cabinets accented with brass pulls and white marble countertops fitted with an apron sink and a brass gooseneck faucet. The room also features a stainless steel double oven with gray shaker cabinets on each side flanked by ivory shaker cabinets completed with satin nickel pulls. Between those ivory cabinets, a brass trimmed hammered metal kitchen hood is mounted to a Calcutta marble slab backsplash. An adjacent wall is finished with an inset double door stainless steel fridge sat beside ivory shaker cabinets holding a wall mounted microwave and oven next to an aluminum roll up cabinet. #ivorykitchen #graykitchen #twotonekitchen #kitchen Craftsman Kitchen

According to the Bristol Post, the most hated job when it comes to household chores is cleaning the oven. No matter what state your own is in, forget the overnight treatments, this mixture will do the trick. All you need is water, baking soda and vinegar, and a sponge. Mix together in a container. Place some of the mix at the bottom of the oven and keep the rest in the container on a rack. Turn the oven to 100 degrees and allow to run for 45 minutes.
