We all wish we had more time to do the things we enjoy…but more time for cleaning may not be at the top of your list.  We at Penny’s Personal Touch actually enjoy helping keep your home clean and tidy.  But, we realize not everyone loves to clean like we do.  So, we’ve compiled a list of 5 cleaning tips that can save you time.  Try each of these and then sit back and relax.


  Burnt, Stuck on Food In a Greasy Pan

Place a dryer sheet in the pot, pan, or skillet.  Add hot water to fill the item and let it sit overnight.  After 6-8 hours you can toss the dryer sheet and easily wipe the pan clean.

  Faucet or Shower Head Doesn’t Spray Properly

Lime and calcium build-up prevents water from going through properly. Get a Ziploc bag and fill it halfway with vinegar.  Place it over the faucet or shower head and tie it there to allow it to sit overnight. The vinegar will eat away at the buildup and your shower is now unclogged! ​FOR THE BEST TIP OF ALL – CLICK HERE!

  Clean The Oven Without the Self-Cleaning Oven Smell 

Sprinkle baking soda in the oven and spray vinegar on the baking soda thoroughly.  Let it sit overnight. Spray the vinegar again in the morning and simply wipe it out.

  Toss The Broom

Brooms are old school cleaning methods that stir up allergens in the air.  Get a canister vacuum or small vacuum for hard floors that can reach hard to get places. This saves time and lets the vacuum work for you!  Every pet owner should toss their broom!

  OR JUST HIRE A PRO!
