Simple Cleaning Tips

1. Clean Top To Bottom

Where ever you are cleaning in the house – always clean top to bottom. Start at the top floor of the house and work your way downstairs. When you’re cleaning a room, start at the top and work your way down.

For example, if you are cleaning a bedroom and you start dusting at the bottom and work your up – by the time you got to the top, you would probably notice dust on the items you just dusted. You may end up re-dusting again only this time working from top to bottom.

Start at the ceiling, down the wall, over the picture frames and door frames, lamps on tables, nightstands, etc.

2. Clean Back To Front

To keep a room looking fresh and just cleaned, start your vacuuming at the back of the room and work your way out of the room. Same with mopping floors.

If you’re cleaning underneath the bathroom sink. Take everything out then get a wet cleaning rag and starting cleaning at the back working towards you. Same thing applies to kitchen cabinets and drawers.

3. Dust First, Vacuum Last

Do all your dusting first and finish with the vacuuming.

4. Keep Cleaning Supplies Close

Get yourself a cleaning bag or carry tote so you can easily carry your supplies with you. If you have two floors, keep a set of supplies on each floor so you don’t have to make extra trips down then up, up then down.

Some things you may want to keep in your tote or totes can consist of the following. Buy supplies when they are on sale.

  • Toilet bowl cleaner.
  • All purpose cleaner.
  • Scrubbie.
  • Sponge (s).
  • Dusting items.
  • Cleaning towels.
  • Mr. Clean Magic Eraser.
  • Pumice stone.

Again if you have a two story house and you have a place for larger cleaning supplies, think about keeping a mop and possibly even a vacuum on each floor.

5. Dry When Done

After you’ve finished cleaning countertops and towel racks, wipe them dry. This is a good habit to get into so wood surfaces don’t get damaged, metal surfaces don’t get etched, and to eliminate water spots.

6. Make Sure You Use the Right Cleaning Products

Make sure you know what your cleaning supplies are used for. There is nothing worse than causing damage to a surface because you didn’t read the label. Don’t mix products; it could possibly be harmful to you.
