When you try cleaning your house do you get bogged down in the details? Do you lose your focus and end up spending too much time getting too little work done? Everyone hates to clean but everyone loves a clean house. Is there a best way to clean your house?
Most novices aren’t sure if they should dust or vacuum first. They wonder whether they should clean the kitchen before the bathroom or vice versa.
Cleaning is much more efficient if you pick one task (dusting, vacuuming, mopping) and do the same task in every room in the house, rather than cleaning the kitchen, the bathrooms and then the bedrooms. Doing it that way prevents you from feeling like you’re in an endless cleaning cycle, starting the same task over and over again.
Pick up and put away stray items and throw trash into waste baskets.
Do this from one end of the house to the other going into every room and putting things away. At the same time, move any smaller items off the floor that you want to vacuum under later such as step stools, waste baskets, etc. Straighten chair covers and pillows.
Dust, again going through the entire house room by room.
Using a duster is much faster than a dust cloth because you can dust intricate items with a swipe or two. And if your duster handle is long enough, you can use it to get the cobwebs and the baseboards all at the same time. Be sure to take it outside and shake the dust off in the middle of your run through the house, especially if this is a task you haven’t done in a while.
Use a spray cleaner and rags or paper towels to clean any glass surfaces, including the TV screens.
Next, go through again and, using a general cleaner, wipe down other surfaces that need wiping. Here is where you will spend some time in the kitchen and bathrooms and may want to use a disinfectant cleaner. Bring two plastic grocery bags with you. One will hold clean rags and the other will be for the used rags. When you are done put the rags right into the laundry room and the spray bottles wherever they belong.
Disinfect countertops and surface areas.
Go through your house and wipe down the hard surfaces – from countertops, appliances and cabinets to doorknobs, light switches, TV remotes and telephones. You should disinfect some of those surfaces, particularly the ones that might deliver germs to people’s fingers and faces. Make a nontoxic disinfection solution by mixing one-fourth to a half cup of white or apple cider vinegar with a cup of water.
Focus on tubs, sinks and toilets
Spray cleaner on the kitchen sink then on bathroom sinks, tubs and toilets, Return to the kitchen and start scrubbing. Don’t forget to wipe down the inside of the microwave. Clean toilets last.
