Cleaning the house {Lint Roll}

Hope you all had a great weekend!
Today I'm going to reveal a little secret I like to use when I clean around my home and at our clients homes.  It is the lint roller!  We use this little guy for quick touch ups where the vacuum will be too strong.  

Tip:  Usually the one that says 'pet hair' works faster as it is more sticky...

Or if you want to go green there are some new washable options...

Here are just a few examples where we use it...

Roll it around the shades and all that dust will be gone in seconds!

I actually make my bed with the lint roller on hand every single time.  I know it might sound crazy, but please give it a try and you will be surprised at all the dust sheets accumulate every day.  If your duvet cover that is white or light color it will look much nicer after rolling the little trick :)

How relaxed this looks! Beautiful!

For a quick touch up...
If you had an 'accident' on your couch (like my daughter here after eating sesame crackers) and don't want to get the vacuum just for that little space...

Have you tried a lint roller around the house?  Did you like it?

Thanks for reading!
