13 Things You Can Clean with a Lint Roller Besides Clothes
If you thought a lint roller was exclusive to removing lint from clothing, well, you’re missing out! There are so many uses to the handy, inexpensive lint roller that you should have them on hand!
Whether you are single, a mom, or a pet mom, there are many uses for the lint roller. I happen to have lint rollers always on hand. I have one in all my bathrooms, in the kitchen, and one in the car too. I definitely had one in my desk when I worked in the corporate environment as well!
There was one occasion at home that I was thankful I always keep them on hand. I had broken a lightbulb. Worse yet, it was one of the smaller, thinner glass ones that are worse about the small shards. There was a great deal of glass EVERYWHERE. To make matters worse, my kids were home. I’m sure you’re aware, if you don’t find a good remedy for getting it up, your feet are finding the glass forever. I knew not to attempt to clean it up with the vacuum because it was a bare floor. That tends to just shoot it. I grabbed my trusty lint roller and got it all up!
As I said, I’ve put this one to use myself! First, sweep up what you can then the lint roller picks up even the tiniest of shards.
Believe it or not, lint rollers are great at getting loose debris, dirt, crumbs and lint of shoes. I like to use it on my suede-like shoes that lint seems to love.
