12) Use Old Toothbrushes
The garbage disposal can get nasty. Use an old toothbrush to scrub it down. Finish it off with a spritz of lemon juice for a fresh smell.
13) Scrub Your Oven
Put a layer of baking soda in your emptied oven and spritz it with vinegar. Get something else done while it soaks, then come back and it should wipe off pretty easily.

If your budding artists have gotten a little marker on your wood floor, just dab it with toothpaste and scrub it off.

16) De-Grim Your Vents
Air vents are some of the hardest spots to clean but are extremely important for the safety of the house. Put a towel on a butter knife and wipe it along the vent for an easy clean.

My husband will grab peppermint oil, mix a few drops with water and clean our granite countertops. He tells everyone that it is the best granite cleaner he has ever found!
You’re not superwoman. Give out these chores to your kids and tasks to other people so you’re not stuck doing everything yourself. Children of all ages can do chores, just make sure they are age appropriate.
