Here are some tips to get you started on cleaning the house room by room. The kitchen- When it comes to kitchen cleaning, being proactive is the key to remove messes.- Clean up spills and drops as they occur, don’t let them sit and stain the counter or floor.- Toss anything from the fridge as soon as it hits the expiration date.- Wipe down the kitchen counter after every use so that finger print stains don’t become a permanent fixture.- Put a load of dishes on overnight and empty it in the morning. This way you can stack the dishwasher immediately.The bathroom- Keep a feather duster handy in the bathroom for the mirror and around the taps.- Use a handtowel to wipe down the sink after brushing your teeth so that stains don’t get a chance to build up.- Keep a squeegee in the shower and always wipe down the doors and walls after showering.- Once a week, flush ¼ cup of baking soda down the toilet and scrub it with the brush. The bedroom- When you vacuum the floors, use an attachment on the cleaner to do the curtains as well. Also vacuum under the bed so that dust doesn’t build up. - Keep a microfiber cloth handy to dust down the dresser and bedside table. - Try to keep reading material to a low number on the bedside table.- Clear out your wardrobe every six months and get rid of clothes you don’t wear any more. The lounge room- Toss junk mail on a daily basis after reading it and throw out old magazines.- Vacuum the high traffic areas once a week, and do other areas once a month.- Do a quick pick up of loose items before going to bed, such as putting the remote controls away, straightening items on the coffee table, and throwing loose papers in the trash. - Dust or vacuum light shades regularly. The laundry- Have a basket system in place to pre-sort clothes before a wash. For example, have a basket for jeans, for darks, for lights, for delicate items, for towels. - Do a load of towels two or three times a week, depending how many people are in your family.- Before doing a load of washing wipe down the front and sides of the washing machine with a cloth and clear out the lint filter.General time savers- Label spray bottles so you know what is in them.- Have a paper towel holder mounted above the kitchen sink or on the cupboard door.- Have a carry basket of cleaners that you can take to each room.- Keep a lint roller handy in the bathroom and in the lounge room for removing dust of cushions, throws and lampshades. - Keep a positive mindset when cleaning – don’t let it become a chore.
