Everyone loves a clean house but the cleaning process? Not so much. If you want a spotless home without having to spend all day doing chores, clean like the professionals do! Here are some tried and true ways you can clean more effectively and efficiently.
Work smarter, not harder! Some cleaning tasks require extra time, like toilets, stovetops, and hard water stains. These all require using cleaning solutions that need to dwell on the surface to really do a good job. That is why you should start with applying cleaners that need to sit for a time first. That way the solutions can do their job while you work on other stuff simultaneously.
Next up, make your life easier by tidying up and decluttering. If there is mail piled up on the counters and toys and books strewn all over the place, thoroughly cleaning is nearly impossible to accomplish. So, take a moment to throw away anything that needs to be tossed and to put everything that has a place in that place.
If you really want to consolidate your efforts, refrain from vacuuming until the very end of your cleaning. This way you can sweep crumbs off counters onto the floor and dust things like ceiling fans without having to worry about having to vacuum a second time. If you leave it till the end, you can just do it once.
Nothing says clean house like sparkling, streak-free surfaces. Many homes today have stainless steel appliances and when these get water spots and fingerprints on them, it can make them look dingy fast. If you want a foolproof way to get your stainless-steel appliances gleaming, a microfiber cloth is your best friend. Microfiber cloths are also great for making mirrors and windows spot-free as well.
If you put these tips into practice, you can fool friends and family into thinking you have a professional clean your home. And you can save time cleaning without sacrificing cleanliness.
