We tend to have a pretty special relationship with our grandmothers. Not only do they love us unconditionally, but they also carry a ton of wisdom about many aspects of life. If there’s one thing grandmas know how to do, it’s to keep an immaculate house. Read ahead for 10 housekeeping secrets our grandmas passed down to us that we’ll pass down to the next generation!
1. DO A THOROUGH CLEAN WITH EACH NEW SEASON
You know the importance of spring cleaning, but grandma knows that your home deserves a thorough cleaning with the onset of each new season. With each new season, take the opportunity to wash your windows, shake out any rugs, vacuum out cupboards, and sort through your closet.
2. USE FLOUR-SACK TEA TOWELS
Instead of using paper towels and generating tons of waste, invest in a pile of flour-sack tea towels. They won’t leave lint or residue on your dishes, and they dry extremely quickly. If they’re good enough for grandma, they’re good enough for us!
3. USE THE PRODUCTS THAT GRANDMA WOULD
Old-school products are still around because they’ve survived the test of time. Use tried and true cleaning products like Bar Keepers Friend, Castile Soap, distilled vinegar, and baking soda. They just clean like others products can’t.
