Six Quick Tips For A Spick and Span Home
We all know that cleaning your home can be an extremely time consuming task. You want to kick back and relax after a hard way of work, but it’s impossible when you see the list of household chores stretching out in front of you. Luckily, there are a few things you can do to save yourself valuable time and free up your schedule to do more of the things you care about. Here are just a few ideas to get your spring cleaning started.
Use Aluminum Foil…To Do the Washing Up!
This may be one that you have simply never considered before, but aluminum foil can be a useful tool when you are washing up. We have all experienced the nightmare of trying to scrub stuck on food off casserole dishes or baking trays. Screw a clean piece of foil into a ball and use a couple of drops of dishwashing liquid to scrub away those stubborn stains.
Use A Pillowcase…For Dusting!
So far, this blog seems to be using various items for jobs they were never intended for, but using a pillowcase for dusting will work – trust me! If you have some ceiling fans around the home, a pillowcase can be the perfect tool for stopping dust going everywhere. Slide it over one blade at a time, slowly drawing the fabric back. The dust will then be contained in the case rather than being spread back all over your room.
Use A Rubber Glove… To Pick Up Fur!
Though you may adore your cat or dog, you certainly won’t love the fur that they leave all over the house. Even vacuum cleaners can struggle to pick this up. A simple way of picking up the fur that has been left on furniture is by putting on a pair of rubber gloves and running your hands over the upholstery. Any fur will then end up sticking to the gloves.
Use A Vacuum Cleaner…For Vacuuming!
This one may not exactly seem revolutionary, but so many advances have been made in the world of vacuum cleaners in the last few years, buying a new one will save you a huge amount of time and energy. Check out http://www.bestvacuumfor.com/ for guides and recommendations. You will need to work out the type of surfaces you will be using it on, how mobile it will need to be and whether you want an upright or a canister model.
Use A Toothbrush…For Scrubbing
Okay, we’re back on track again. A toothbrush can be used to get into those hard to reach areas – the nooks and crannies that regular brushes and cloths simply cannot reach. If you’re a stickler for making sure everything is clean, this could be the choice for you.
Use A Towel…For Curtain Cleaning!
Many people vacuum their curtains, which can be immensely difficult and time consuming. Instead, hit them with a towel so the dust falls onto the floor and vacuum from there.
