We all lead busy lives, so to help keep your home tidy in half the time why not try these simple cleaning tips and tricks. Free up some valuable “me time” with just a little effort and some insider knowledge.
Fresh in a flash
Keep rooms smelling fresh by sprinkling your living room carpet with baking soda before you go to bed. The next morning a quick vacuum will leave you with a cleaner smelling room.
Overnight oven cleaner
Apply oven cleaner at the end of the day and leave overnight, that way you can dramatically cut down the amount of scrubbing time. Merry Maids recommends using a mixture of white vinegar and baking soda to keep your oven clean. Moisten the inside of your oven with water, apply a thick layer of baking soda and let it sit for three hours, while you get on with other things. Spray vinegar on the baking soda and watch it fizz into action. Leave overnight and then wipe clean in the morning.
Scrub a dub tub
If both you and your shower are in need of freshening up, why not kill two birds with one stone? Disrobe and hop in armed with your best scrub brush. Soap up, and then rinse yourself and the shower at once. Both you and your shower will be fresh and clean in half the time! Glass shower doors look better for longer it you use a squeegee to remove water after you shower.
If you have a friend that seems to keep you on the phone for an hour, use the time to multi task. Try using a micro fibre cleaning cloth to clean your furniture, this not only makes the best use of your time but will also help to catch more dust than a regular duster and will cut down the need to use cleaning products.
Get the kids involved
Let’s not forget, cleaning the house isn’t just your responsibility. If you have children why not get them involved by giving them a regular cleaning chore?
