Tips For House Cleaning
-Prepare and follow a house cleaning schedule; Use a schedule to assess and determine when certain things are most likely to require cleaning. By preparing and following a regular house cleaning schedule, it will be much easier to keep your house clean at all times.
-Store all of your cleaning supplies in a good plastic carrier or bucket. You can use an apron which has pockets to carry the cleaning supplies with you while you work; Remember to label your cleaning supplies, and always keep them in a safe location that's separate from the food supplies.
-Utilize dish soap when cleaning your house. Dish soap is one of the safest and most effective things you can use to wash your fabrics with, when they get stained. Dish soap is commonly used to treat many different types of stains since it's extremely effective. Dish soap is gentle and is great for spot treating most fabrics such as washable silk and wool, which could otherwise get damaged by laundry soap and detergents that have stain fighting enzymes.
-Use dish soap to clean your bathroom and kitchen floors; Dish soap can easily transform a bucket of water into a very powerful floor cleanser. You can use the solution on the tile and vinyl flooring, but avoid the hardwood floors.
-Certain areas of the house are much more likely to accumulate grime and dirt; one such area is the kitchen. The kitchen is the heart of any home and receives a lot of traffic, (especially if you have kids). Wash, mop and clean your kitchen floor more regularly, like on a weekly basis.
-When removing stains, you should consider using a mixture of baking soda and dish soap. Sprinkle the mixture on the stains til they are completely covered, and then spray with water. After the mixture has been absorbed, wipe the surface clean using a cloth. Baking soda and dish soap solution is also great for removing coffee stains and cleaning the kitchen sink.
-When removing mold and grease, you can use a mixture of vinegar and dish soap to remove them. Fill a spraying bottle with white vinegar and add dish soap. Then saturate the affected areas and allow the mixture to evaporate. Before you use your cleaning detergent to wash the curtains and other such clothing, you use the mixture to quickly remove any greasy stains.
-When removing soot, oil and wax, you can use a combination of washing soda (that is, sodium carbonate) and dish soap, on glass and stone. Make a paste with a quarter cup of washing soda, some dish soap and water. Cover the stains with the solution, and let it sit for one hour or so, and then scrub.
-Use a hairdryer to easily remove any water rings from the wooden surfaces, and then refresh them using olive oil. You can use shoe polish to get rid of scuffs and scratches from your leather sofa.
-You can sprinkle your rugs and carpets with a little amount of the bicarbonate soda, and after 20 minutes, you can easily sweep away all the dirt; any fustiness will also evaporate. You can also fix scratches on the wood furniture using a mixture of olive oil and vinegar.
