If you have pets, then you’re likely no stranger to having pet fur absolutely everywhere. There’s likely fur on your couch, bed, clothes, carpet etc. It takes a lot of time and effort to remove this fur, but one hack to quickly remove it is to use a lint roller. You can even use duct tape to remove the fur if you don’t have a lint roller handy. Simply wrap the duct take around a paint roller with the sticky part on the outside. Then, roll it wherever there is pet hair and it will quickly remove it in seconds.
Next, one of the easiest ways to quickly clean your floors and carpets is to use a vacuum cleaner. If you don’t have a vacuum, then you should definitely buy one asap. The great thing about modern vacuums is that they have extremely powerful suctioning capabilities so that they can easily remove all the dust, dirt and allergens from your carpet and floors. This is particularly helpful if you have allergies or sinus issues. Vacuuming a room would only take a few minutes, so it is a great way to quickly clean your floors, every day. There are many vacuums that come with additional attachments that allow you to quickly clean your drapes, couch and even inside your car. This is truly an extremely versatile cleaning implement that you should always have in your home.
When it comes to cleaning the garage, one easy way to quickly get the job done is to use a leaf blower! Yes, instead of using a broom, you can use a leaf blower to quickly get rid of any dust and loose items you may have on your garage floor. Of course, before you start, make sure to secure any important items, papers etc.
Most people hate cleaning the bathroom, especially when there is soap scum on the bathroom walls and floors. However, one easy way to get rid of it is to allow the soap scum to dry and then use a potty knife to scrape it off. If you want to prevent this scum from forming in the first place, consider switching to liquid bath soap.
Cleaning is easier when you have a daily plan instead of waiting for everything to pile up. So, for example, instead of allowing your dirty clothes to pile up, simply wash a load every day. If you have a timer on your washing machine, set it to start up an hour or so before you reach home. Then, when you reach home you can take out your freshly washed clothes and put them in the dryer. This simple tip will ensure you always have clean clothes.
If you enjoy cooking but hate the clean up after, then you should clean as you cook. This extremely simple tip will help you to have a clean kitchen by the time you’re finished making dinner. So, for example, if you’re making pizza, as soon as you put the pizza to bake, use that cooking time to wash up the cutting board, bowls, knives and clean up any flour messes you may have made.
Next, having a clean toilet is important for good hygiene. So, in order to always have a clean toilet, you should make it a habit to do a light toilet clean every night before bed. It will only take a few minutes to add your toilet cleaner, scrub and disinfect the seat.
Many people often leave garbage in their homes for many days. This is not only unsanitary but attracts many pests. So, you should make it a habit to take out the garbage every night or even every morning as you’re leaving to go to work. This simple habit will ensure your kitchen is always clean and fresh.
Running out of cleaner can happen at any time and can delay your cleaning. However, instead of waiting until your next grocery trip, you can create your own cleaner. All you need is white vinegar, water and baking soda to create an all purpose cleaning agent that you can use to clean your bath tub, kitchen sink, counter tops etc.
Our final tip for a clean home is to always strive to keep your home as clean as possible. You can do this by placing outdoor mats at every exterior door of your home. This can greatly help to prevent dirt from being tracked into your home in the first place.
In summary, we have just looked at 10 of the best tips that will certainly improve your home cleaning. Be sure to implement them and you will always have a clean and spotless home that everyone will enjoy.
