Tips and Tricks for Better Home Cleaning
Cleaning your home is pretty much a straightforward process – you just have to do everything in your power to make the house squeaky clean, with no traces of dust or odors.
Sounds simple, right?
Well, we all know that home cleaning is very tedious and, most of the time, we’d rather not do it at all. Moreover, there are also instances when we deal with just the obvious, such as dusting the furniture and mopping the floor and leave the intricacies for another time.
However, there are some tips and tricks that can not only help you better clean your home but also make the process either more interesting or faster. If you are interested, then keep on reading!
Sink Your Issues
After a couple of days of just in-home cooking, the kitchen’s sink will look like a food battlefront. On top of that, as time passes and we use our sink, spots will literally get stuck on it, as well as really bad odors.
The secret to keep those away and make your sink look like it’s displayed in a store to fill it with warm water and then add a bit of bleach. This mixture is to be let in the sink for roughly 10 minutes – it will kill the bacteria that cause the stains and the odors.
Bathrooms can get quite dirty – without you even noticing. Obviously, we refer to the floors and wars that, as most of us know, can get a shade or two darker every month or so.
This is fixed via thoroughly washing the floor and wall tiles with a sponge and a lot of soap. However, we have a better idea!
An electric pressure washer – not the most powerful one – can be used to remove layers of dirt, bacteria, and almost anything else that you need to get rid of. Naturally, you’ll have to use a low-power setting on your washer and also get ready to get the bathroom wet.
Forever Fresh Mattress
It goes without saying that you should either wash or replace the bed sheets every week or so. Not the same can be said for your mattress – as some can’t be washed and because you’d need a spare mattress, too.
Still, there is something you can do to keep the mattress fresh for quite a long time. You cover it with baking soda and allow it to sit for around 20 minutes or so, after which you vacuum it off.
Doing so will increase the freshness of your mattress without you having to buy rather expensive mattress cleaning supplies.
The Odor Killer
Throughout our home, we often come across smells that really put a stop to our cleaning process. This is mainly because we’ll get stuck over a stovetop or counter and scrub it until the smell is gone.
However, most of the time we don’t manage to shoo away the smell. In such cases – as well as in many other scenarios that require a little bit of perfume – you can rely on essential oils.
For example, you can simply add the essential oil of your choice to your scrubbing mixture or solution and enjoy the results. Moreover, if you add baking soda or vinegar, you can also kill bacteria and get rid of the bad smells too instead of just masking them.
The Bottom Line
As you can see, you don’t need any expensive cleaning solutions to better clean your home. We all know that baking soda, vinegar, bleach, lemon/ lime juice, and a couple of others are miracle-makers when it comes to killing germs and odors!
Now, you just have to apply these tips – as well as others that you can find online – and turn home cleaning into a fun and exciting process!
