Use a lint roller to tidy up your living room if you’re pressed for time. Whisk a lint roller over your furniture and carpet for a quick clean-up. Since they fit underneath your couch and chairs, you don’t need to move your heavy furniture around. Just roll the lint roller underneath and pull out the dust.
