Being the busy lady you are, sometimes it’s just not feasible (or a priority, for that matter), to dust your entire home from top to bottom—especially went it comes to those hard-to-reach areas that require step stools and body contortions. But, if you repurpose one unsuspecting item of your daily life, it’ll quickly become the lazy-girl cleaning companion tool you didn’t know you needed: newspaper.

That’s right—after you finish up your self-care Sunday ritual of poring over the style section, put the pages to work so you don’t have to worry about removing thick layers of grime from places like the top of kitchen cabinets, atop the fridge, and underneath your bed. Apartment Therapy instructs to line the hidden areas of your abode with a few sheets of newspaper, go about living your life, and make sure you swap out the sheets on the reg.

Just line the grimy areas of your abode with a few sheets of newspaper, go about living your life, and make sure you swap out the sheets on the reg.

For narrow spaces, you can cut the newspaper to fit, and to place the paper under the legs or posts of heftier pieces of your furniture, enlist the help of an assistant so you don’t hurt yourself. And you might consider tapping your workout buddy for the job so the 20 minutes of tidying up can double as a tag-teamed sweat sesh. (Just make sure to queue up your best workout playlist for strong background vibes.)

Now, your vacuum will be the only thing gathering dust.

Other easy ways to keep you home spick and span: Stock up on Well+Good editors’ fave cleaning products, and use this ingredient for the freshest smelling load of laundry ever.
