Here Are The Best And Most Efficient House Cleaning Tips:
Clean One Room At A Time ( especially the most used rooms)
The thought of cleaning the entire house can be overwhelming, and you will agree that it may discourage you from getting started. However, if you must get it done, you must start by picking up a room and cleaning from one room to the other. The best approach is to start with the most untidy room, for that room will need more cleaning than others.
Getting to grips with this room requires more work and will make it easier to clean the others. You will also feel a feat of accomplishment when you are done with the stricter task of cleaning other rooms in the house.
Give Priority To The State of Your Kitchen
From our experience, the kitchen is one of the places in your home that require regular cleaning and special attention. You make lots of mess in the kitchen daily, so it is only fitting that you get rid of dirt, clean spills off and take away the trash from the kitchen daily. Anytime you make a mess, you should clean it immediately, don’t leave dirty plates around, and take kitchen trash out the same day to prevent decomposing items that can cause a pungent smell and create an unhealthy environment. Also, keep the kitchen floor clean by mopping the floor and getting rid of any buildup of dirt regularly.
For the kitchen, you should have a daily routine of taking out the trash, recycling kitchen waste, storing items properly, and cleaning as you use.
Keep Your Bathroom Free From Germs and Bacteria
Like the kitchen, the bathroom needs regular cleaning, for this area is prone to the buildup of germs and bacteria. In addition, because the bathroom is always wet from the usual bathing and washing activities, and water spills off to items we use all over the bathroom, it can get damp and can become a breeding ground for germs and bacteria. Thus, you should have proper storage for things like toiletries, soap, towels and other accessories to prevent contact with water spilling off and germs flying around.
It is best to wash the sinks, toilet, seats and showers regularly using natural vinegar mixed with water for effective cleaning. Also, if you have mirrors in the bathroom, clean them, especially after bathing, to remove clouds or specs of dirt that may spill on the mirrors.
Keep The Living Room Tidy with proper storage of Items
The living room is where we spend most of our time, and it is where you entertain your visitors, the kids play around, and where you usually spend your leisure time. As the living room gets more untidy than other parts in the house, you should devise ways to keep it tidy regardless of the beehive of activities in this space.
It’s a good idea to use suitable strategies like getting proper storage and placements for items in the living room, such as remotes, magazines, kids’ toys, and other things. Also, ensure that these items are appropriately placed and arranged after each use to ensure that the place is tidy. Get a doormat to reduce the amount of dirt from outside the house. And finally, you should sweep and dust the living daily, using a mop at a regular interval to maintain a high level of hygiene in the most used area of the house.
Protect Yourself with Eco-Friendly Products
It’s best if you don’t make your home toxic with chemical buildup from cleaning agents. Avoid detergent and cleaning agents that contain poisonous chemicals with promises of effective cleaning. There are several of these toxic detergents in stores, and you should check out eco-friendly brands that will protect the environment. Also, you can make use of homemade detergent, which can be as effective as those detergents manufactured with chemical substances.
One such homemade solution is the vinegar solution which has become popular. It is easy, cheaper and cleaner without any health effects. Also, the use of microfiber cloth will go a long way to protect you and the environment when you clean every part of your home.
You can make the process of cleaning your home easier with suitable materials and equipment. However, you do not need to have elaborate cleaning equipment, for there are several DIY solutions you can find online which are effective and environmentally friendly.
