With so many responsibilities competing for your attention, it’s no wonder housework sometimes gets pushed to the bottom of your to-do list. But a messy house can be more than just an eyesore! Cleaning homes is certainly not an easy job keeping in mind different surfaces, locations and stains! Well, now you need not block off a full day for cleaning; here I am with some easy ways to cleanse your house:
PURIFY INDOOR AIR
Himalayan pink salt is a natural ionic air purifier that pulls toxins from the environment and neutralizes them. Add a Himalayan pink salt lamp to any room in your home or office for both functionality and decoration. Plants are Mother Nature’s air purifiers; try growing these plants for natural and continuous air purification: rubber tree, peace lily, English ivy, lady palm, aloe vera, spider plant etc.
KEEP DESKS NEAT
Put all your pencils/pens into a holder or pencil case. Put books/paper stuff into a neat pile and sort out from there and put it away tidily. Then sort out your drawers (if you have any). Last of all, put some stuff on your desk like a pencil case, homework, computer, a notebook, etc.
Can’t get the shine you want with simple paper towels? Place a drop of dish soap in a gallon of water, wipe it generously on the window with a cloth, then squeegee it off. Go top to bottom and wipe the blade each time at the bottom, you’ll get a window that is streak-free.
DUST AND DON’T SPRAY
Feather dusters work great for cleaning blinds, pictures, nooks, and other areas. You need to get hold of a high-quality feather duster that will fit in your back pocket. The duster works well for routine dusting, but for heavy buildup, you’ll need to vacuum or use a cloth, then use the duster every two weeks or so after that.
NEAT AND CLEAN BED
Making the bed makes a room look good fairly quickly. Remove stuff from bed like pillow covers, pillows, sheets etc. and wash if necessary. Replace and tuck in sheets. Place warming blanket (down or otherwise). Place the decorative blanket.
CLEANING FLOORS USING VACUUM
Remove garbage, and sweep floor with a magnet for BBs, and look for nonmagnetic objects. Vacuum the floor, starting with rugs, which you should roll up and store on the bed while vacuuming the floor. Vacuum the floor, and replace the rugs; use the extension tool for your vacuum to get around edges.
THE ULTIMATE LEMON CLEANER FOR STAINS
Rust stains on patios, porches, garage floors, and driveways can be a pain to remove. But you don’t need acid to remove them. Instead, use a lemon. The acid in the lemon juice will dissolve the rust. Cut the lemon in half, squeeze the juice onto the stain and let it soak in for about 10 minutes. For stains that have been on the concrete for weeks, months, or longer, scrub with a hard bristle brush. Then rinse off the lemon juice and gunk with clean water.
Use hydrogen peroxide in a trigger-spray bottle to battle mould and mildew. Spray it on, let it sit 3 to 5 minutes, and it will kill the fungus. To keep mould from coming back, use a fan when showering. When you’re done, take a couple of minutes to squeegee the water off the tile walls and shower door.
