We are short of free time all the time. Work, friends, family take most of our time and there are still so many things to be done – hobbies, exercising, home chores… A the proverbial domestic chores – cleaning and stuff… But you know someone has to do it. Unless you’re ready to hire a professional cleaning company then this someone is you. Here are 5 smart tips how to make your life easier and save some time while cleaning your home.
De-clutter With Bins
No matter how clean a home is, if it’s cluttered then it looks messy and dirty. Make an experiment – clean your home, take a few photos and then scatter around old magazines, newspapers and add a pair or two of dirty socks. Use the images to compare how your place looks now and before. Put everything in order with a couple of bins. Dedicate a bin for dirty clothes, one for clean ones, another for parer products like newspapers, books or magazines.
Use Pantyhose Collecting Small Objects
This one is an invaluable life hack! I hate so much moving furniture sideways to remove small objects under or behind my couch. A friend of mine suggested I should use an old pantyhose and vacuum cleaner. Simply borrow an old one from your girlfriend or sister, attach it with rubber bands to the extension and use it to catch what’s behind furniture.
Pay Attention To High-Traffic Areas
Like most of us, you might feel the pressure of time. After all, you have a ton of other more important things to do. So, when it comes to carpet cleaning, focus on high-traffic areas instead of trying to cover the whole surface. Thus you will save time and keep your home in proper condition. Vacuum clean high-traffic spots at least once a week and every other month spare time for less used areas.
Make Your Cleaning Solutions
Start making your own home cleaning detergents and solutions. You save money, save time making circles around aisles and help reduce pollution as well as corporate profits. Joking aside, preparing your own cleaners at home is beneficial. You use only natural products such as baking soda, vinegar or salt – no dangerous chemicals or anything you won’t put on your table. These homemade cleaners are as efficient as the ones sold in large store chains.
Call Professional Domestic Or Carpet Cleaners For Help
If you realize that you can’t cope with what is in store for you in terms of cleaning a carpet or your kitchen, don’t feel discouraged. After all, you are only a human being. Recently a friend of mine, who is by the way one of the most engaged persons I know when it comes to home cleaning, admitted she hired a professional carpet cleaning company. She said that two weekends of heavy cleaning were done by expert cleaners in mere 4 hours.
