There are things that bug me in my life, like, those little itsy bitsy holes in my walls at home from small nails here and there.  I certainly don't want to paint the entire wall for little teensy weensy holes, so, I just use a crayon to color over the spot.  Works like a charm.  I mean, if you REALLY look closely you can tell, but nobody looks at my wall like that.  You can also use toothpaste for this hack, but I did that once and it ended up having little tiny blue specs on the wall and it didn't last as long as the crayon did.

There are many other "cleaning hacks" that I've discovered along the way because, truth be known, I like to clean.  It's kind of ridiculous, but it's true.  I like the way that it looks when I'm done.  It doesn't always mean that my BACK likes cleaning as much as I do, but it tolerates my desire for perfection.  My favorite cleaning hack is the one that saves my back from aching and yes, it's here in this article for you too.  I care about you and your back.

The following is a list of my favorite life/cleaning hacks.  I hope you like them and I hope that you find them useful.  Mostly, they were born out of necessity and a desire to remain in my slippers and sweatpants.  That's how the bathtub cleaning one was born.  There was no way I was going out to get bathtub cleaner.

Enjoy!
