If you’re regularly cleaning your house or only giving it a fast fix before visitors come, having a few helpful cleaning tips will make the task simpler and more effective. Here, we’ve assembled a collection of some of the most efficient house cleaning strategies out there. Following hacks can help cleaning home in half the time.
Fast House Cleaning Tips
- Clean the Whole Home, Not One Area at A Time
Cleaning is far more effective if you chose one job (dusting, vacuuming, mopping) to perform the same thing in every space in the home instead of cleaning your kitchen, bathrooms, or bedrooms. Doing so stops you from thinking like you’re in a constant loop of washing, starting the same job again and again.
- Gather All of Your Cleaning Supplies in A Caddy
Whether it’s a caddy, bowl, or tote, getting all you need to sweep in one compact location makes it a lot simpler to get the job done. You’re not going to spend time searching for tools when you’re washing because you don’t have to think about collecting them until the next time you go home.
- Clean Up the Mess
Until you start sweeping, go to space and sweep up the clutter. When you pick up anything – books, well-read paperbacks, old shoes – imagine packing it aside, tossing it away, or recycling it.
- Dust and Vacuum
Until you start cleaning, make sure the ceiling fans are switched off. Focus your dust mostly on the chairs’ tops and the lower parts of the racks, the handrails, the photo frames, the knickknacks, and the TV screens. For hard-to-reach places, such as blinds and upper cabinets, bind a microfiber cloth to either the end of even a mop or broom. Adjust the sheets throughout the bedrooms in front of the cleaner.
- Clean the Countertops Including Surface Areas
Go around the house and scrub down hard surfaces – including countertops, appliances, cabinets to doorknobs, light bulbs, TV remotes, and phones. You can disinfect some of these surfaces, particularly those that could deliver germs to people’s hands and faces. Create a non-toxic disinfection product by combining one-fourth to one-half cup of white or apple cider vinegar with just a cup of water.
- Concentrate on Bathtubs, Sinks, and Toilets
Spray the cleaner upon this kitchen sink and now on the bathroom sinks, bathtubs and toilets. Let it rest for a few minutes so that the cleaner gets time to dissolve the soil and the stains. Then go back to the kitchen and prepare to clean. Don’t neglect to clean the interior of the oven. Clean the toilets last time.
