Now, what are those cleaning tricks that we have been talking about? In no particular order, they are:
Using a laundry basket whenever you are cleaning
There are a lot of ways to clean up your home. For someone who has a problem dropping items and clothes all over the house, this may be a simple trick for you to use. When you want to tidy your house, carry your laundry basket from room to room as you tidy, and make sure that everything fits in there. That way, you can keep hold of items instead of holding them in your hands.
Keep the laundry baskets at strategic positions in the house
One of the reasons people tend to have scattered and disorganized spaces is the inability to keep these baskets at strategic points in your space. For instance, if you live in a house with stairs, putting laundry baskets at the top and bottom of the stairs may be a great way to enforce tidiness. This means that when you are heading for the stairs, you can always open the basket and dump those dirty or untidy items there without having to wait for a weekend or Saturday to do so.
Use a vacuum on surfaces before wiping
Vacuum cleaners are mostly used to suck up all the dust and dirt on surfaces, but they can only do so much. For effective cleaning, you can start with using vacuum cleaners on the surfaces and then wipe them for extra cleanliness.
Make use of the brush attachment in your vacuum cleaner
Most people know what a vacuum cleaner is, but not all of them know that the brush attachment in the vacuum cleaner is perfect for brushing the surfaces in your home. Those hard-to-reach areas can be effectively cleaned with the brush attachment.
Use vinegar and water for glass cleaning
This is a great way to give your extra glass shine, but there might be another way that you could try—using old newspapers or old clothes to do the cleaning. You can even cut the sponges to clean the window tracks.
Use removable oven liners for your oven
Instead of always having to clean the floors of your oven, you can use oven liners. You can also use tin foil and ash to clean the insides of your ovens. Baking soda can also be used to get rid of all those residues for the top of stoves and ovens.
Make use of soapy water and rags to dust those surfaces
You can use vacuum cleaners to clean, but there is no guarantee that they can make surfaces as clean as you want to. Wiping these surfaces ordinarily might not even get the job done. You just might have to make use of mildly soapy water. With a rag and soapy water, you can effectively wipe surfaces to give them that extra shine that you always want.
Use vinegar-soaked sponges or cloth to clean faucets around your sinks
When residue builds up or if you haven’t cleaned your sinks in a long time, this is the best way to go about it. Soak a cloth in vinegar and use it to wipe everything down.
Use salt and lemon to get rid of stains in your kitchen
Whenever you are done cooking, there might be stains or smells that would be unpleasant. A simple cleaning trick is to use salt and lemon. It gets rid of stains and any unpleasant smell. It is simple but very effective.
Clean your shower while you shower and air out your bed before making it
These two are mostly overlooked because people have not found out how effective it is. While taking a shower, you can always clean the shower to avoid any residue drying up on the surfaces. When you get to your bedroom and want to dress your bed, just try airing the room out before dressing it. You may not notice what it does until you try.
