Simple Tips To Help Keep Your Home Spotless

Disclosure: I have received payment for this post on simple tips to keep your home spotless. This post is in line with my blogging policy.

Invest in the right tools

The old adage suggests that only a bad workman blames his tools, but the fact is, without the right equipment, cleaning is destined to be an arduous chore. This is why it pays off to invest in the some great gear to help you with your housework. Even simple things like long dusters and microfiber mops can help to speed up your sprucing sessions. Make sure you have all the relevant vacuum cleaner accessories for your property. You might benefit from additions like tangle-free turbine tools, soft bristled attachments and flexible crevice tools.

Keep clutter to a minimum

Make sure you keep clutter to a minimum too. This will make tasks like dusting and mopping much easier and quicker. Be strict with what you choose to store and what needs throwing out!

Pre-treat surfaces

When you’re tackling patches of food, dirt or grime on the surfaces in your kitchen and bathroom, make sure you pre-treat them with a suitable cleaning product. By doing this, you’ll ensure the detergent does most of the work for you. By the time you return to the area, a simple swipe with a sponge or cloth should remove the troublesome spot.

Clean as you go

Bear in mind that sometimes it’s savvy to clean as you go. For example, each time you’re done in the shower, simply give your tiles and door or curtain a few sprays with a daily shower cleaner. This is a great way to prevent dirt from building up, and it means your shower will look fantastic at all times.

Also, don’t be tempted to let dirty dishes build up in your sink and around your kitchen. By keeping on top of your washing up, you can ensure you don’t end up having to tackle a mountain of glassware, pans, cutlery and crockery.

By following simple cleaning suggestions like these, you should be able to ensure your home stays sparkling without any stress.

  7. I totally agree about the shower Tandy, clean it as soon as you get out. We have hard water that just builds up and then you have to use those harsh chemicals to get the soap scum off. And the dishes, I learned in college, never let dishes sit in the sink! The food gets almost permanently stuck on, so I guess my $50,000 education for well worth it. Especially those eggs. Great advice!
