Everyone hates to clean.
But we all love a clean house. How do you win in this situation?
We’re here to help and we’ll be sharing our best tips on how to clean effectively to get the best of both worlds.
Keep reading for these five tricks because you don’t want to miss them.
You might motivate yourself by telling yourself that you only have to do one room a day, rather than everything at once.
BUT that’s a mistake sometimes. Life is busy, so things can prevent you from finishing the job later in the week, or you might lose the desire to complete the tasks – that’s normal.
To prevent this from happening, find one day a week, or even one day every few weeks, and clean the entire house at once.
When doing something you particularly don’t want to do, multitasking can help you out a lot.
Now you might be wondering how you could do this while cleaning, and we promise that it’s simple.
First, grab your multipurpose cleaning product and spray down your sink, stove, microwave, counters, and any other objects that need cleaning.
As that is sitting, go spray down your bathroom completely. Keep doing this until your entire house has the multipurpose product in the areas that need cleaning.
After that’s finished, go back to the kitchen, and continue down the list of rooms to wipe down the surfaces.
Revisit all the rooms and continue with the same process as we mentioned for the kitchen.
This tip might seem like an obvious one, but trust us, more people than not think that they can skip sweeping since they recently did it.
You don’t want to do this. Always sweep first, even if you did it the other day. If you don’t, you run the risk of mud forming from the dust and the liquid from the mop running into each other.
In the end, save time and energy, and make sure to sweep first before mopping.
Microfiber cloths are essential when cleaning. We’ve talked about them briefly in other blogs, but it’s too important not to bring it up for these tips.
When you’re cleaning with paper towels, lint particles get left behind, but with microfiber cloths, you get a better clean, and you don’t run the risk of particles getting left.
If you don’t know where to buy them, check out Amazon or your local grocery store.
There is a difference between cleaning daily and clearing the clutter at the end of the day.
By clearing clutter at night, you can keep things organized and not have to add even more to your to-do list when it comes time to deep clean.
Pick up everything off the floors, counters and do the dishes every night, and you’ll be amazed at the difference in how it feels when you wake up in the morning.
Say goodbye to trying to do everything yourself and have Diamond Maids do it for you.
