8 Simple Tricks to Get a Sparkling Clean Home and Office
In this article, we are sharing just 8 of the trick to getting that sparkling clean and fresh feel to cleaning tasks.
Use clean microfiber clothing
To make the most of microfiber cleaning cloths, use only one section of the cloth at a time. So, fold the cloth into half, then in half again. This will give you eight surfaces for cleaning — four on each side.
For dusting, leave the cloth dry. For other chores, dampen the cloth, then wipe surfaces clean.
When the cloth starts to leave behind dirt or lint, or if you’ve used it a few minutes, re-fold to a fresh section. Continue until the entire cloth has been used or the cleaning chore is complete.
Clean floor from up to down
To get the best result during cleaning, you must clean from the top the bottom. Regardless of where you are positioned when cleaning, your movement should be away from the area that has been cleaned. Otherwise, you will be stepping on an already cleaned portion of the floor
Wash mob before use
Mobs are used after the floors have been swept or vacuumed, to get the best from mob make sure to get it washed because a dirty mop that hasn’t been thoroughly cleaned will move dirt and bacteria around your home or office and not properly clean the floors.
Frequently change water
Water is very important in cleaning tasks, especially when doing some surface cleaning. It is important that the water doesn’t look murky or dirty before deciding to change, instead of cleaning off the stains or dirt, you will find out that the stains never left in the first place. It becomes more visible when the cleaned surface becomes dry.
Clean water also helps in removing to avoid spreading germs, never rinse mopheads or other tools used for cleaning in the kitchen sink
Avoid using metal or finger to scratch surface
When surfaces are scratched with hard objects it leaves marks that make it lost it smoothness. The best way to clean a hard surface is with a moisten microfiber cloth. It wipes away dirt without leaving a trace.
Even with wood polish, the marks will still be visible if you scratch the surface, and this is one of the ways to keep your furniture looking new.
Wipe soap residue
For a sparkling clean bathroom, get vinegar and dish soap, Mix one part with dish soap and the other part with vinegar to scrub your shower walls and get that grimy grout sparkling white. Clean it right before you shower so you can rinse everything off easily.
Clean one at a time
If your goal is to get the dirt off a place or an object, then you must be organized in how you go about the cleaning task. You should have the end in sight, that is, how clean you want it to look like. Don’t start with floor mopping when you know you are still going to clean the ceiling fan!
You have to carefully plan your task so that you won’t have to do waste time cleaning somewhere you already cleaned.
- For other parts of the kitchen and bathroom, brush your faucet with a toothbrush, baking soda, and water. If your sink and shower faucets are stained with hard mineral deposits and grime, sprinkle a little baking soda on an old toothbrush, add water, and scrub away until they look brand new.
