Do you find yourself dreading having to clean the house? When you look at that long list of chores do you find yourself overwhelmed? Well you’re not alone! Cleaning your home or even just a single room can be tedious, frustrating, boring, and sometimes just downright difficult. That’s why we’ve put together a list of four helpful home cleaning tips & tricks just for you! With these cleaning hacks you’ll be able to clean efficiently & easily so you can get back to doing the things you love.
#1: Have All Your Home Cleaning Supplies Together & Portable
You can use a basket, bucket, tote bag, caddy, or whatever is convenient for you to keep all your most frequently used cleaning tools in one spot so that you can easily bring them all over the house. You may not notice but you probably spend a lot of your cleaning time gathering supplies and preparing to clean. You can really improve the efficiency of your cleaning routine by having what you need immediately on hand. Just finished cleaning a bathroom and now you need to go dust some surfaces in the living room? Good thing your duster is ready to go right next to the scrubbing sponges in that cleaning toolkit you have with you! Save time & frustration by seamlessly bouncing from task to task with all of your cleaning necessities in tow.
#2: Keep Your Tools & Supplies Clean Too!
We get so caught up in making sure that we leave every detail in our homes spotless and sparkling, but when was the last time your home cleaning tools were spotless and sparkling? Hint: it was probably right before the first time you used them! Cleaning with dirty tools is much less effective and can extend the amount of time and effort that you’ll have to put into cleaning. Cloths and sponges used for cleaning can be some of the dirtiest items in your home. Thankfully, you can just pop them into the microwave for 30 seconds to 1 minute and they’ll come out sanitized & ready to go. Alternatively, you could throw the rags in the washing machine and put your sponges in the dishwasher to clean them as well. It is highly recommended to clean your brushes, sponges, cloths, and any other tools after each cleaning session. Depending on how frequently you use them, you should also replace your sponges every couple of weeks to avoid build-up of bacteria.
#3: Clean The Air Vents
Sometimes it seems like right after you finish cleaning you turn around and everything is dirty & dusty again in the blink of an eye. This can be very discouraging and demotivating when it seems like your cleaning methods aren’t working. But what if I told you there was a way to keep pesky dust from building up so fast? The secret is in the air vents scattered all throughout your home. When was the last time you opened up those air vents to clean & unblock them? If it’s been a while, your vents are probably pushing dust through the house and fighting against your hard work cleaning. Not only can this send dust into the rooms of your house, but it can heavily impede on what the vents are actually supposed to be doing and block the air! Try using a vacuum brush tool on the vent grate, or if you really want to clean it out you can remove the grate and do some work with your favorite cleaning solutions just inside the walls of the vent as well. Your surfaces, and maybe even your electric bill, will thank you.
#4: Hire Home Cleaning Professionals To Do It All For You
We all saw this one coming, right? There’s no easier way to clean your house than to have someone else do it while you don’t have to lift a finger!
