Cleaning your home seems like a rather self-explanatory undertaking, but if you sit down to consider it, where do you even begin? And how can you clean a bathroom, anyway? We’ll work it down into a streamlined process that looks easy enough to handle and instantly gratifying. Once you begin, you won’t want to stop until the entire house is spic and span.
Don’t begin a space by wiping the coffee table, then wash the blinds, and watching the dust out of the blinds coat your freshly clean coffee table. Sardone claims to start at the peak of the room, like dusting a ceiling fan, and work down to the ground to eliminate redundant work.
For each job, start at the maximum point in the room (if dusting, this may imply high shelves), and move from left to right across the area. This way, you do not miss anything, and you won’t accidentally knock dust on already-cleaned lower shelves.
Likewise, cleaning left to right ensures that you cover the whole room rather than darting from place to place.
Having all of the tools and cleaning products you want at arm-reach means you won’t waste time walking back and forth into the cupboard below the sink. Our Team recommends wearing an apron, or perhaps a carpenter’s tool belt, and filling the pockets. This may be hard with several large bottles of cleaner, but you do not require huge bottles pour the cleaners into little spray bottles that are simple to carry. You may also set your supplies in a caddy or a bucket to remain organized and save time.
Wipe down all counters and surfaces throughout the home, disinfecting as required.
Pro tip: be certain to wipe down all areas that palms touch, such as door handles, light switches, TV remotes and telephones.
Walk through and spray cleaner on bathtubs, sinks and toilets. Return and scrub. Then, in the kitchen, wipe down the inside of the microwave, and cabinet and appliance doors.
Feather dusters work great for cleaning blinds, pictures, nooks, and other regions. Sardone likes ostrich feather dusters, which begin at about $10, since the feathers handle the dust and the big quills do not fall from the handle.
No one said you had to do everything at once and even when time seems short, if you can afford one job every day, things should begin to work out themselves. Adjust this listing as your family’s needs require.
Always have a cleaning checklist and a plan of attack. Know which rooms you intend to start and complete your cleaning in.
This will help expedite the process and ensure you’re not duplicating your efforts, particularly if more than 1 individual is involved in the cleaning.
Create a plan so you may vacuum, sweep, and mop all rooms together (and therefore that your hot water does not get cold) and you do not need to go from one job to another.
