In no time at all, you’ll be cleaning like a pro and your house will look amazing!
Always clean from top to bottom. You don’t want to be dislodging dirt or dust onto clean floors after all.
Get your cords in order. Electrical cords attract dust because they heat up and attract all the dust (sloughed-off skin cells, pet hair, human hair and more) that is in our homes. Tie them together and keep them off the floors to minimize this issue.
Wear house-only shoes. Or slippers – or go barefoot. This will help keep dirt out of your house and your carpets and floors cleaner for longer.
Use your cooking down time to clean up. While you are waiting for pots to boil or a roast to cook, take the opportunity to wipe down kitchen surfaces, clean the microwave or wash up your knives and chopping boards.
Use a squeegee in the shower every day. Use it to clean down the shower door and the tiled surfaces to reduce the build-up of soap scum and mold. This is one of the best top cleaning tips!
Treat stains straight away. Any spills (red wine, food and more) are best treated straightaway.
Clean little and often. You are more likely to do the job if you think it is only going to take 15 minutes or so, rather than several hours.
Make your cleaning time ‘me time’. Listen to a great playlist or a podcast and this can help relax and entertain you as you clean.
De-clutter so you have less to clean. Piles of books, magazines, un-played with toys – all of these items mean more cleaning because you need to put them away or store them. Get rid of anything you haven’t used recently.
