When you may want to clean your home
You will want to clean your home…
- As a regular cleaning, to keep the home fresh and hygienic.
- In this case a light cleaning will do.
- If guests are coming over.
- In this case, you’ll need to complement your regular cleaning with some cleaning that you don’t do regularly (like cleaning under sofas).
- If you want to stage your home for a sale.
- In this case you need to go for a deep clean.
That being said, let’s look at the home cleaning tips and tricks for 2021.
Vinegar for cleaning glass surfaces
Glass surfaces like mirrors will attract dirt and dust.
For dust, use a soft cloth to remove.
For dirt, use a newspaper with vinegar, or a soft rag with vinegar.
This will ensure no scratches on the glass while cleaning it.
Microwave cleaning cloths
If you have a cleaning cloth that you use regularly, it will become dirty, and have bacteria, as you may expect.
A simple remedy is to microwave them for 20-30 seconds. That kills bacteria.
Clean cleaning appliances once a week
Cleaning appliances like washing machines and dishwashers can collect dirt and bacteria themselves.
To maintain hygiene, clean them once a week.
Give your sinks – kitchen, bathroom and elsewhere – a good clean every week or every 2 weeks.
In particular, remember to clean under sinks, as that is a commonly ignored area.
Lemon and salt for steel stains
Steel surfaces gather a particular kind of stain that can spoil their look over time.
However, you can deal with that using lemon and salt.
- Sprinkle salt around the stain.
- Directly use the pieces of a cut lemon to clean the stain(s).
Using lemon not only cleans the surface but also gives the room a fresh, natural smell.
Throw curtains in the washing machine
Clean your curtains once a month.
Just throw them in the washing machine, and then hang them out to dry.
Baking soda for couches and rugs
Baking soda has high absorbing power.
That makes it a good cleaning agent for surfaces like rugs and couches that absorb stuff easily (and that is what stains them).
What you can do after a home cleaning
Get some new home furniture to give your home a refreshed look.
Go for some home decor.
Go for a home staging.
