Our lint roller hacks are part of a sponsored campaign on behalf of Niagara Water and Millennial Blogs. I’m looking forward to working with Niagara Water over the next few weeks and sharing some of my favorite no-nonsense tips and hacks that I use in our daily lives!
If you have a busy family and you have a lint roller, you have to check out some of my favorite ways to use a lint roller to keep things cleaned up. And I’m talking about more than lint or pet hair on your black shirt as you head out the door!
No-Nonsense Lint Roller Hacks
I’m excited to have been given the “Mrs. No-Nonsense” Award by Niagara Water and to have the opportunity to share some of my best real mom tips and tricks over the next few weeks.
I shared my excitement in a little video on our Facebook page as well as a little teaser about the power of the lint roller! Seriously, you need a lint roller in your life if you’re a busy parent!
With three generations living under one roof and two dogs, I definitely live the busy family life. As much I want to have all the time in the world to do all of the cleaning of every little corner in our house, I don’t. I’m always looking for some tricks and tips to get those things done more quickly.
Cleaning the car? Let me be honest, it’s not going to happen if I have to break out the vacuum cleaner to get my van clean, it’s less likely to happen. But if there’s an easier way then it will happen!
So check out our easy lint roller hacks that might convince you to buy a lint roller (or mini lint roller) for upstairs, downstairs, in the car, in your purse, or just about everywhere!
Clean the Car
Sure, you can use your lint roller to keep your clothes looking good before you walk out the door! But consider taking one into the car with you!
I’ll be honest and say that unless I just got the van cleaned like an hour earlier, the floor of the car (and sometimes the seats) are dirty. Crumbs, dirt, and fuzz balls just seem to magically appear!
Lint roller to the rescue! I roll that regularly over the high traffic areas of the floor of the van and it makes such a difference! A mini lint roller is great to have in the car too for smaller spaces!
Speaking of crumbs, they seem to follow me. I find them in the car, in the playroom, all over the coffee table, and even in my bed! I’m not sure if they stick to my kids and rub off when they touch things or what.
We don’t eat in the playroom or my bed! Yet, the crumbs! Oh, the crumbs always seem to find me.
One of my favorite lint roller hacks as a busy mom is to use one to catch those crumbs! No matter what surface they are on and no matter how tiny the crumb, the lint roller has my back! I roll my sheets before I get in bed any time one of my kids has been in my bed!
Doing the Dusting
Did you know that your lint roller is great for dusting? You can use it to dust off lamp shades, curtains, and even couches! It stops the dust from just floating about and landing somewhere else!
I’ve also used mine to dust stuffed animals that don’t get played with but sit on shelves. Oh and to dust those shelves and the windowsills!
So it works great on anything fabric that you might want to dust but also on flat surfaces! Just roll and dust on!
These are some of my favorite lint roller hacks but there are tons more like:
- Use your lint roller gently on a peeling sunburn to remove the dead skin.
- Do you cut your child’s hair at home like we do with Weston? The broom won’t get all of the little hairs but your lint roller will!
- Ever decide to do a craft with glitter, sand, or tiny sequins with your kids? Grab the lint roller for easy clean up!
- It doesn’t happen often but we’ve broken a few glasses, mugs, and glass bottles on the kitchen tile floor. Sweeping then running a lint roller over the area is an easy way to make sure you’ve got all of the tiny shards up!
