A home is a place where you go to rest and relax, kick your shoes off and take the stress away. Well, if your home is a pit it is very difficult to be able to get any rest or relaxation at all because you know darn well you need to clean it. Trust me when I say it is much easier to rest and relax in a house that is clean. Here’s a rundown of some home cleaning solutions to help make the clean job easier and more efficient for you.
Before I clean I like to categorize things as in priority or non-priority. The priority items obviously need to be cleaned now, right away, and the non-priority are things that I can clean in little spurts throughout the rest of the week assuming I wouldn’t have time to do them now.
Things that I consider non-priority would be things like cleaning the shower and cleaning my own room. I know I can probably save time cleaning the shower and clean it when I am actually taking a shower. I may also wait on cleaning my own room seeing how it won’t be seen by visitors and shouldn’t bother anyone else in the house.
The major cleans like vacuuming, sweeping, mopping in the main rooms of the house I consider priority and needs to be done all the time. Cleaning and dusting furniture and making sure the fridge is clean should also be considered priority. Anything that can be considered a health hazard needs to be cleaned pronto! If you have pets I would strongly suggest that you vacuum and clean no less than once a week.
Certainly categorizing your chores can be considered a great home cleaning solution but here are three more home cleaning solutions to give you some real help with troublesome areas in your home.
Get rid of awful odors and fowl smells by using white distilled vinegar in the troubled areas. For really bad areas, pour the vinegar in a bowl in leave it sit over night. This really works and its also good at removing soap and mineral deposits.
Another home cleaning solution is using baking soda as a cleaner. This product can just about do it all. Use it to clean sinks, bathtubs, countertops, and to remove odors as well. Its non-toxic so feel free to use it at will for all your cleaning needs.
The last home cleaning solution secret I want to share with you is to use lemon juice to remove mineral deposits, tarnish and tough grease in the kitchen or garage. Lemon juice is a powerful acidic cleaner and will cost much less than any of the other harmful cleaners you would buy at a store.
