Effective house cleaning tips

Significantly because the holidays are close and most of us are busy planning menus or trips we need a good and easy way to clean up.

Beyond that if you are a novice cleaner you probably aren't sure if they should dust or vacuum first. Also, probably wondering whether to clean the kitchen before the bathroom or vice versa.

Follow our guide, based on years of hard-earned experience and make most of your time and clean your house fast and efficient.

Clear the clutter

First things first, you can't clean with clutter. So,before you start cleaning, go room to room and pick up the clutter. Pick up each item – magazines, well-read paperbacks, old sneakers – consider to toss it or donate it.

Get a Caddy

Get your self a caddy, bucket or tote, having everything you need to clean in one portable place makes it much easier to get the job done. No time wasted on looking for tools while you clean, and don’t have to worry about gathering them before your next cleaning

Ditch Room by room, clean the whole house

Cleaning your home will be much more efficient if you pick one task (dusting, vacuuming, mopping) and do the same task in every room in the house, rather than cleaning the kitchen, the bathrooms and then the bedrooms. This will prevent you from feeling burnt out and going in a cycle, starting the same task over and over again.

Dust and vacuum

Turn off ceiling fans before you start dusting. Concentrate on dusting the tops of furniture and the undersides of shelves, on handrails, picture frames, knickknacks and TV screens.Hard-to-reach areas, like blinds and upper shelves, tie a microfiber cloth to the end of a mop, swifter or broom. Make sure to change the sheets in the bedrooms before you vacuum.

Clean mirrors and glass

Dampen your microfiber cloth, followed by one dry cloth in wiping clean all the mirrors and glass surfaces.

Disinfect countertops and surface areas

It is important to disinfect surfaces, particularly the ones that might deliver germs to people’s fingers and faces. Make a nontoxic disinfection solution by mixing one-fourth to a half cup of white or apple cider vinegar with a cup of water. Add a splash of dish soap and essential oils.

Go through your house and wipe down the hard surfaces – from countertops, appliances and cabinets to doorknobs, light switches, TV remotes and telephones.

Tubs, sinks and toilets

Spray your favorite cleaner on the kitchen sink then on bathroom sinks, tubs and toilets.. Make a nontoxic disinfection solution by mixing one-fourth to a half cup of white or apple cider vinegar with a cup of water. Add a splash of dish soap and essential oils. Let it sit for a few minutes so the cleaner has time to dissolve dirt and stains. Then return to the kitchen and start scrubbing. Don’t forget to wipe down the inside of the microwave. Clean toilets last.While in the kitchen, you also want to make sure your garbage disposal is in tip-top shape.

Sweep, then mop

Sweep or vacuum the kitchen and bathroom floors. Start mopping or swifter from the farthest corner of the room and move backwards towards the doorway (that is, don’t mop yourself into a corner). Rinse the mop or change pad ( when dirty) every time you complete a 4-by-4-foot area.

Vacuum and keep moving

Don’t worry about getting every nook and cranny when you vacuum. Just keep moving through the house, running the vacuum in every carpeted room in one pass through.Some tasks don’t need to be done each week. These include waxing the furniture, cleaning the windows, and washing area rugs and bath mats. Inspect these accessories and use your own judgment

Wash your cleaning tools

An overlooked part of cleaning is maintaining your cleaning tools. Using a dirty mop or a vacuum with a full bag is not effective, and you will spend more time trying to clean or clean up after you've spilled a full bag.

Make Cleaning a group activity

Schedule time in advance with your family, and assign tasks to each person. Working together can add some fun to cleaning, and your house will be sparkling in no time.Making cleaning a team effort is one of the best ways to clean a house fast.
