Before you throw something away, you should always think about whether it can still be useful in your home. No, this is not a call to accumulate junk, but just a tip to optimize the cleaning process. Sometimes an unusual object can work wonders if it is used for other purposes.

For example, an old pillowcase can be reused as a cloth to clean high walls, lamps, or chandeliers. House Digest explains how pillowcases can be useful in everyday life.

A pillowcase is a pretty versatile thing. There are many life hacks on the web on how to turn a pillowcase into a variety of creations, including turning it into a storage container for traveling or using it as a protective cover when washing shoes or delicate fabrics.

The most useful life hack, without a doubt, is to use the pillowcase in the cleaning process. All you need to do is take a mop or a mop stick and wrap the pillowcase around it. It is worth using an elastic band or tie to hold the fabric in place. In a pinch, old hair bands always work well too.

The pillowcase can be used to collect dust and debris from the ceiling, corners, and ledges in the room. You can also do the same on tall cabinets and bookshelves, in nooks and crannies of kitchen cabinets, etc. For added effect, spray the cleaner onto the cloth to remove any remaining dirt.

This method also makes it easy to clean overhead fans, which is another place where a pillowcase will come in handy and help eliminate all the hidden dangers associated with dust, including allergies, respiratory problems, and poor sleep.

Before you start, you should place a sheet on the furniture or floor under the fan. Make sure the fan is off and use a chair or stepladder. Then place a pillowcase on each individual blade and pull the fabric toward you, collecting all the dust. Light moisture will help the dust adhere to the material and prevent dry particles from dispersing.
