Best methods to clean your home

By using the following techniques, you can easily clean your home 

1- Dusting from Top to Bottom

You can use a cloth or duster to remove dust from your furniture, shelves, and ceiling fans. Dusting is done on everything to give your home a new look and a disease-free environment. Dusting is always started from the highest portion of your home to the lower portion so in the end clean areas remain safe from dirt and dust.

2- Wipe out your mirrors and windows 

Use a glass cleaning solution along with a microfiber cleaning cloth to clean all glass items in your home, clean your windows, mirrors, and doors to make them dirt and dust-free and to remove stains from them.

3- Putting things back in their place 

If you do this simple thing, your workload gets lower and your room looks organised. For example, you are watching your favourite football match. You are using pillows and blankets for your comfort, when the match is ended you should fold your blankets, fluff your pillows, and put them back to where they were before.

4- Regular use of a vacuum cleaner

When dirt and dust accumulate in your home, your home becomes a dirty and unhygienic place and bacterial and germ growth becomes easy. So to avoid diseases in your household and to protect your family from these germs, you should clean your home regularly, by using a vacuum. 

5- Clean high-touch areas of your home 

You should clean doorknobs, tables, desks, fridge handles, door handles, and elevator buttons regularly by using appropriate Disinfectant cleaners and wipes. These are high-touch areas of your home and are more prone to get dirty and can affect your health.

6- Remove Grease by Using Coke 

As we all know, Coke is used as a delicious drink after eating food, but it is also helpful in removing grease spots from your floor and clothes. If your floor tiles have tough stain spots due to grease, pour Coke on them for a few minutes and then wipe it out with a towel.

7- Bathroom cleaning

Your washroom is perhaps the dirtiest place in your home. Your washrooms are full of dangerous and harmful germs and bacteria. So make sure to clean your bathroom properly by using disinfectant and washroom cleaner to protect your family, especially your elders and children as they are more prone to diseases.

Make sure to properly clean high-touch areas of the bathroom like bathtubs, sinks, bath towels, showers, and faucet handles.

8- Wash your dishes 

You can wash our dishes by using dishwashing soap and a sponge if you have dishes in smaller amounts. But if you have a lot of dishes to wash then use a dishwasher to get properly clean dishes, but this is a tough task for so many women to do.

9- Clean your Electrical Appliances

Clean your refrigerator, microwave oven, washing machine, fans, and televisions regularly to restore their original look. if we don’t look after them, these things will become old and dull. So a cleaning agent is used to remove dirt and stains from them.

10- Decluttering before cleaning 

Pull out every item from your home that you are not using and donate it or store it in another place. Decluttering gives you free space in your home, and your home also gives an aesthetic view when it is free of unnecessary clutters.
