These tips for house cleaning will help you get all your cleaning done in one day.
To maximize your cleaning day, it’s best if you prepare for it ahead. Walk around your house and make a list of everything that needs cleaning and organizing. Once your list is ready, arrange your tasks in a schedule. You will probably have eight to ten hours to finish all your chores, so divide that time wisely. Don’t forget to eat! You need your energy to keep cleaning.
Make Cleaning Interesting
You will need motivation to get you through the day. Make cleaning fun for you. Turn up the music and play your party playlist. Having upbeat, happy tunes playing in the background will help you stay energetic and enthusiastic as you clean. Prepare a reward for yourself at the end of the day. Eat that dessert you’ve been craving, get a massage, or buy those shoes you’ve wanted. Make the hard work worth it.
Start in the Inner Rooms
The bathroom is one of the hardest places to clean. Clean it first before you lose your motivation.
Try some of these effective cleaning tricks to make the job easier and less-time consuming. Rub a mixture of baking soda and vinegar on you bath and sink and leave it to wear away grime. Tie a bag of vinegar around the shower head and faucet to remove the mineral deposits.
While you wait for the solutions to do their work, clean and disinfect your toilet. Wipe the bathroom mirror, handles, and knobs using a microfiber cloth to get rid of grease and water stains. Throw away empty shampoo bottles, expired products, and trash. After taking care of everything, you can finish up the bath, sink, and shower head.
Next should be the bedroom. Put away all the clothes and items that are cluttering your room. Throw out stuff that you don’t need. Start cleaning from top to bottom. Clean the corners in your bedroom and under your furniture, but don’t move them unless you have more time.
Head to the Living Room
Start with decluttering your living room then go with the top to bottom approach. If you have a ceiling fan, clean that first, followed by the windows and the blinds. If you use curtains, take them down and wash them.
Get rid of the dust on your lampshade and pet hair on your couch using a lint roller. Wipe your coffee table with a microfiber cloth to remove dust and dirt. You can add a few drops of coconut oil on the cloth to make your wooden furniture shine. Once you’ve gone through the top part, you can start vacuuming the floor, reaching under the furniture.
Clean Your Kitchen
One of the most important parts of the house is the kitchen which needs to be clean all the time. It’s the place where you cook and prepare your food. The kitchen also contains a lot of appliances that can break when not cleaned regularly. Make sure that spend time cleaning everything.
Clean out your cupboards, drawers, cabinets, and refrigerator first. Get rid of expired products and spoiled food. Wipe the grease and dirt off handles and surfaces, and use cleaning spray to disinfect them. Remove the stains and grime on countertops, stove tops, and over doors using a mixture of lemon juice and baking soda.
To clean your microwave oven without scrubbing, place a cup of water mixed with lemon juice inside and bring to a boil then wipe the residue. Sometimes, the usual wiping and scrubbing won’t do when it comes to cleaning tricky appliances so don’t be afraid to try out other methods. Just make sure they’re safe.
