Are you about to embark on your annual spring clean? Do you need to get your flat or house cleaned before your tenancy runs out?
Over the last week or so the sun has started coming out here in Bristol and with Easter just around the corner Spring is definitely in the air. Whether you’re moving house or just looking to give your home a spruce before the Summer party season, this blog post is for you.
For the following post we’ve pulled together a selection of hacks and tips that should make your cleaning tasks that little bit easier.
When you’re cleaning your kitchen work in a circle motion, starting to the right of your oven and then moving around the room in a clockwise motion. The top of the oven is usually one of the dirtiest places, so working this way means you’ll avoid moving and spreading too much dirt and grime around.
The oven is the heart of most of kitchens so it’s important to take care of it. Now we’re not suggesting you perform a deep oven clean every week, but one tip that can help keep your oven looking clean is to use a non-stick oven liner. These help keep your oven in great working order, is also easy to clean and lasts for absolutely ages.
Stop using paper towels, seriously STOP USING PAPER TOWELS. Microfiber cloths are a much better option as they are both multipurpose and can be machine washed and used over and over again.
‘I’ll do that later on’ isn’t a phrase you should be using much if you’re looking to make your spring clean, end of tenancy clean or for that matter any clean easier. So if you see a spill wipe it up straight away – this will be much easier than if you give the food, drink or sauce time to set in.
We all lead busy lives so many of us partake in the occasional spot of multitasking. When it comes to cleaning your bathroom and if you have kids, you can use the time they spend in the bath to clean the sink, toilets and cupboards.
If you’re pushed for time but want to get your bedroom clean start by making the bed. This instantly makes the whole room look tidier and you can then see how pushed for time you are and what to prioritise next.
When it’s time to do the washing remember nearly all items of clothing can now be washed on cold. This helps the environment and reduces your household bills.
When it comes to any form of cleaning (especially if it comes after a long day of work or time spent chasing the kids around) starting can often be the hardest part of the process. One way of getting motivated is to time the different cleaning chores you have to complete as most only take 10 minutes or so to complete.
When it comes to vacuuming, start at the farthest point of the room and work back towards your starting point.
‘Quick sweeps’ can be a good way to go if you’re especially pushed for time when cleaning. Doing a quick five minute run through of a room, picking up toys and dirty items of laundry will help you keep on top of running a house without sucking up too much of your time.
