Anyone who knows me knows that housework is not my favorite activity. I mean, I do enough to get by, but you will never find me scrubbing light switch covers with a toothbrush. So, I am always up for any kind of cleaning products I can find that will save me some cleaning time. I have several previous posts that have lots of helpful hints for you:

Now, I’m going to focus on some fabulous “lazy people” cleaning products that will help you keep your house in Apple Pie order with minimal effort.

Product #1: Silicone grill mat. We like to BBQ a lot and it’s such a pain to scrub and scrub that grill with a wire brush. These mats are the bomb! They keep your food off the grimy grill, but they still leave those nice grill marks on your steaks and chops. They also have the added bonus of keeping the food and drippings from falling through onto the flame. They also wash up nicely if you clean them while they are still warm.
#2 – Oven Liner – This is what I was looking for when I found the grill mats. Cleaning the oven is a big fat hairy pain! So why not use these oven liners instead? I originally looked at some Teflon ones, but I saw several comments that people’s pet birds had died from the fumes of emitted by them. I’m thinking if it kills birds, it’s probably just as bad for us, so I opted for these foil versions instead.
#3 – Burner guards. The liners take care of the inside of the oven, but not the crud that drips down into the burners (yes, I still have the old-style burners). I just use foil on mine, but it’s pretty flimsy and I like these disposable liners much better. Looks like these are for gas burners, but they have ones for electric burners too.
#4 – Gap covers. These were in the kitchen section, but they could also be used for the edges of bathroom counters, or the edges of your washer/dryer. And it keeps the little crumbs and stuff that builds up in there and keeps things looking neat with very little effort.
#5 – Rack Protectors. OK, these ones won’t save you any labor, but I thought they were very cool anyway. You snap them onto the edges of the racks and then you don’t accidentally burn your hand or arm when you’re taking hot stuff out of the oven. How brilliant is that? I don’t know about you, but I’ve done that lots of times. I’ve been using them for several months and haven’t had one burn yet!
OK, we’re halfway there – click NEXT for the rest of the list.
