I Can See Clearly Now: Top Chores To Tackle Today
Many of us can get stuck in a cleaning routine from time to time. We tend to stick with the chores that need doing the most or the ones that need our attention there and then. But there are some chores we can just forget to do, the ones that would make a world of difference, but yet don’t always present themselves as urgent jobs. However, if you tackled those today, you could get a head start on that spring clean, and make a real impact to your living space.
We forget about the upholstery
Too often we can focus our attention on mopping floors and cleaning work surfaces and forget that we do have a lot of upholstery around our home that will very rarely get cleaned. Things like couches or chairs, and even blinds or curtains. So maybe now would be the perfect opportunity to use an upholstery steam cleaner and breath a new lease of life into those everyday items.
Do you dust your light fittings?
Dust can settle everywhere, am I right? The skirting boards, the furniture and even under it, you can find dust pretty much everywhere. But when was the last time you gave your light fittings a dusting? Probably not for a while. This is because your lights don’t tend to be at eye level, you won’t notice just how much dust has gathered. So grab a feather dusters and get dusting those light fittings and watch them shine even brighter than usual.
Declutter the cupboards and drawers
Clutter can really zap the energy right out of us, so while we are motivated to get our homes in order, maybe you should focus some of your attention to decluttering your home. You can start small by just concentrating on your cupboards and drawers. Then maybe moving on to different points of your room. Ven just allocating five minutes each day to decluttering can make a huge difference to how clean and tidy your home looks.
Give your windows a clean on the inside and out
During the winter there are some chores that we just want to avoid, cleaning your windows might just be one of them. So you might find that as the winter sun starts to shine through the panes, that they look a little dirty and dusty. Why not use this time to give your windows a good clean on the inside and out, it can make a huge difference to the amount of light it lets into your home. Which could even improve your mood.
Time to clean the appliances that do the cleaning for you
Finally, many of us rely on washing machines for our clothes and dishwashers for our pots and plates, but yet maybe we don’t clean those appliances as often as we should. However, grime and limescale can build up in the pipes which means you could end up cleaning your clothes and dishes with dirty water. So spend some time running through a detergent in those appliances to get them sparkling once more.
