Tips for Everyday Cleaning of Your Home

The essential daily cleaning helps us to cut off scrubbing and scouring to a great extent while cleaning in the future. It also comes with the advantage of keeping your space free from harmful germs and bacteria, which can be a threat to our general health 

Clean the Dirty Dishes: You can always skip pre-rinsing as today’s machines and detergents make it unnecessary. It saves you a lot of time as well as resources. Enzymes in the dishwasher work wonders when they can attach themselves to the food particles. 

Clean Your Coffee Maker: Start with washing the removable parts of your coffee maker using warm soapy water. You can also choose to stick dishwasher-safe parts in the machine. Also, make sure that you wipe down the warming plates to avoid spilling. 

Sanitize the Sinks: Eraser-type sponges can be used to remove the stains and marks on the sinks easily. Follow this step by sanitizing the area by plugging the drain of the sink, and filling the basin with warm water and a spoon of bleach. Rinse the sink off after letting it sit for five minutes. 

Tips for Weekly Cleaning of Your Home

There are numerous benefits to weekly house cleaning. To make it all easier, tackle one job a day since this will keep you away from the feeling of doing everything all at once. For instance, devote different days to different tasks such as cleaning the kitchen, bring out the vacuum, changing sheets, and so on. 

Clean Your Microwave: You can begin the cleaning by heating your microwave-safe bowl with a cup of water and a teaspoon of vinegar. Then, keep it on high power for a few minutes until the window gets steamy. Let it cool for five minutes before you open the door; remove the bowl and then wipe the inside with a clean sponge. 

Sanitize the Cleaning Sponges: Mix 3/4 cup of bleach in a gallon of water and let the sponges soak in for five minutes. Follow this step by simply rinsing it off with water. 

Scrub the Surfaces of Your Bathroom: Choose a bathroom cleaner that is suitable to be used on the type of glass, tile, and tube surfaces of your bathroom. 

Tips for Monthly Cleaning of Your Home

The best way to make monthly cleaning at your space easy is to schedule the tasks for different days and delegating the jobs to your partner. Who doesn’t feel better when their work is shared  at the end of the day?

Clean Your Washing Machine: You can use a special washer cleaner cycle on newer models of washing machines or specialty cleaners and run them on a gentle cycle. 

Clean Vacuum: Change the bag of your vacuum cleaner when it is three-quarters full for strong suction, and replace the filter when it becomes torn or dirty. 

Wash the Dishwasher: Fill a large glass measuring cup with two cups of vinegar and place it on the top rack of the dishwasher to descale your machine. Follow this by running the dishwasher without using detergent. 

Tips for Cleaning Your Home Every Three to Six Months 

Clean Inside of Oven: Clean the loose bits of food inside the oven with a damp sponge. You can then use the self-cleaning function of the oven to remove burnt-on dirt. Make sure that you wash the racks in the sink using warm water and a heavy-duty scrub sponge. 

Wash Your Pillows: Make it a point to fiberfill pillows in the washer and launder two at a time in warm water on a gentle cycle. Give it  an extra cold water rinse and spin cycle; tumble dry it on low heat on a few rubber dryer balls. 

Wash the Shower Curtain Liner: Make sure that you wash plastic and vinyl curtains at your home in the machine on the highest water level; adding two bath towels can bring in extra agitation too. 

Tips for Cleaning Your Home Every Year

Deep Clean the Windows: You can also choose a dry and cloudy day to do it to prevent streaks. To make it easy, begin by removing the dirt and dust. Follow this step by spraying a suitable cleaning liquid on window panes, and then wipe all the dust and dirt down using a microfiber cloth.
