Trash Tricks

Wipe down the inside of your trash to keep it smelling fresh. Place an extra batch of garbage bags at the bottom of the trash can, so when you take out the trash, you’ve got a replacement bag waiting.

Clean Sweep

Before sweeping dirt into your dustpan, put a plastic bag around it. When you're done sweeping, turn the bag upright and throw it away. Just a few seconds can save you minutes in the long run.
