How clean is your house tips and tricks

Knowing where to start is the key. You need to take things room by room and in each room tackle one thing at a time until everything is free of dust, dirt, and grime. There are many quick cleaning tips you can use such as:

Cleaning the shower after each use

Empty the shower before spraying with an all-purpose bathroom cleaner and scrub the shower tray with a scourer. Rinse with warm water and wipe dry with a microfibre cloth. Tackle any limescale on the tiles with white vinegar – doing this regularly prevents any build-up and makes future cleaning easy.

Scrubbing the toilet

Use a toilet brush to scrub the bowl and under the rim. Flush and then apply a toilet cleaner and let it sit for a few minutes as you disinfect the seat and handle with wipes.

Airing the beds before making them

On fine days open the windows to get a breeze. Give the pillows a good shake and return them to the bed plumped up. Turn the duvet right back to the end of the bed and leave for about 30 minutes. Straighten out the mattress and fitted sheet before pulling up the duvet and smoothing it out.

Using laundry baskets

One of the simplest cleaning tips and tricks is to put laundry baskets in bedrooms to drop dirty clothes and linen in which keeps rooms neat and washing ready to load. You can also use smaller baskets to collect items from rooms as you tidy to keep scattered items altogether and easy to carry.

Attaching the brush to your vacuum

This gives you the ability to brush all surfaces before you wipe them down as well as getting into hard to reach areas on floors, stairs, and upholstery.

Soaking a cloth in vinegar

A cloth soaked in vinegar becomes multi-purpose! Use it to clean out sink residue, and diluted with water is perfect for cleaning glass.

Deodorising surfaces

A sprinkling of baking soda on floors and upholstery will get rid of unpleasant smells in around 15 minutes. You can then vacuum up any residue.

Degreasing cabinets

Make a solution of washing up liquid and warm water to spray away the grease. Give a final rinse with clean warm water and dry thoroughly with a microfibre cloth.

Freshening up the microwave

Put a cup of water with a chopped lemon and several tablespoons of vinegar into a bowl and pop in the microwave. Set on high until the window becomes steamy. Let the bowl sit for about 5 minutes and then the insides will easily wipe clean.
