Everyone knows the drudgery of house cleaning, a chore most of us dread but must be done just the same. For those fortunate enough, hiring a cleaning service can help save you some of the work but there are little things that still need to be done between cleaning days. These tips will help keep your house clean longer even if you don’t have a cleaning service.
These first tips will help to keep your bathroom sparkling between cleaning days.
Once a week or more often if desired use a toilet brush to clean the toilet bowl to remove any visible stains and water lines. Clean the seat, rim, and handle and the faucet handles with a disinfecting wipe to remove germs.
Clean water, soap, and toothpaste splatters from the bathroom mirror with bathroom squeegee. The condensation after a shower will help the squeegee get the job done in no time without the need for any chemical cleaners.
After a shower wipe down the shower enclosure and shower door with a squeegee to remove unsightly water spots. Another shower tip: use a liquid soap or shower gel to reduce soap scum build-up.
Moving on into the kitchen clean food splatters in the microwave and spills in the refrigerator as quickly as one, two, three.
Splatters wipe up easily when you place a few lemon slices in a cup of water and heat for five minutes in the microwave. The condensation from the heated water and the cleaning properties of lemon will loosen even the toughest splatters and spills so the can be easily wiped away.
Cleaning dried up spills in the refrigerator is a chore most of us hate but if you following this simple cleaning method refrigerator spills will be a snap to clean up. Place a dishcloth that has been soaked in a solution of 4 cups of water mixed with 2 Tbsp of baking soda on the spill and let it sit for 20 minutes to loosen the spill so it wipes right up.
These whole house cleaning tips will help to keep the entire home clean longer.
To avoid tracking dirt into the house, remove your shoes when you enter the house. Keep a pair of house shoes or slippers by the door or go barefoot while in the house. This will keep the dirt from outside right by the door instead of spread through your house and carpet.
Use a static dust cloth to wipe dust from furniture while walking through your home or while heading to the front door. Making this a part of your daily routine will help to keep your home dust free. Since dust is a common allergen, this routine will help reduce allergic reactions to dust for you, your family, and friends.
Even if you don’t have a cleaning service these tips will help to minimize the time needed for cleaning day chores.
