The Lazy Maid

Who I am and why this is my passion

Welcome!

If you’re reading this you somehow found your way to my cleaning blog The Lazy Maid! So I figure I should introduce myself!

My name is Rachael and I am a stay at home mother of two boys who are my everything! I have an amazing partner who works hard at both his job and being an amazing father so he can allow me to follow my passion and help others learn how to clean easier and quicker. If I must say, lazier.

My passion for lazy cleaning came with the birth of my first son. It was when I had him I realized I was able to either have a clean house or the ability to spend one on one time with my child. But why couldn’t I have both? I mean there had to be a way, there just HAD to. So I started experimenting, with cleaning products, with common household items and even socks! Yes, I said socks!

Swipe LEFT to start enjoying the lazy cleaning hacks I have for you and if you need The Lazy Maids advice on how to clean something, don’t be shy! Just ask!

Plastic Wrap To Clean A Stovetop?!

An extremely easy way to clean your stovetop no matter how dirty it is!

Items You Need:
•Plastic Wrap
•Multipurpose Cleaner
•A Damp Rag
-OR-
•A Few Damp Paper Towels

What To Do:

Firth things first, wipe off all of the loose crumbs. Trust me, it’ll make life easier in the long run.

Next, take your cleaner and spray it down. I mean REALLY spray it down. You want it to be noticeably wet with cleaner.

Now, take your plastic wrap and cover your whole stovetop with it. Yes, on top of the cleaner. (This allows for the cleaner to stay wet and not dry up from the air.)

Leave it sit for about 15-20 minutes depending on how stuck the food it/ how dirty your stovetop is and go enjoy yourself a glass of wine, or a coffee. (This allows the cleaner time to break down anything that may be stuck to your stovetop.)

After the time has passed, remove the plastic wrap and wipe with your damp rag. Making sure to wipe the entire thing, including underneath the range drip pans.

And TADAAA!!!! Your stovetop is looking cleaner than you ever knew it could and it took minimum to no scrubbing!

Let me know how you liked this hack and share it with your friends to make their life easier!
