Wonder how you could make your home cleaning much easier and quicker? – Be organised. Always have a weekly and monthly plan for cleaning. And most importantly, put together a compact portable kit, where you have all products and tools you’ll need in one place. This will not only save you a lot of time, but also it will be much easier to notice if you need a fill-up of any of the products.
Here are the cleaning kit essentials to start you up:
Step 1An All-Purpose Cleaner:Whatever your personal preferences are - a deep cleaning chemical detergent or a natural DIY cleaner, you absolutely must have an all-purpose disinfectant. If you are keen on making your home completely sterile, then keep relying solely on chemical cleaners. However, don't underestimate the ill effects of chemicals on your health and the environment. An eco-friendly or even DIY cleaner made of vinegar and lemon is a much preferable choice.
Step 2Microfibre Cloths: Clean microfibre cloths prove to be the most effective tool both for dusting and spot removal. They are great for a gentle scrubbing without being abrasive for more delicate surfaces. Besides, some cheerful colours will make the cleaning somewhat more pleasant. It's always handy to keep a kitchen roll of recycled paper too.
Step 3Cleaning Brush + Toothbrush: On the other hand, there are surfaces which require a firmer touch. For these occasions, you should be prepared with a decent cleaning brush. You should always choose one that feels comfortable and won't harm your hands while scrubbing (history knows more than enough cases of blistered palms due to a harsh cleaning brush). Another practical tool for your kit would be the good ol' toothbrush. And let's admit it - there's simply no better way for grout cleaning.
Step 4Baking Soda: Ah, the universal ingredient to all DIY cleaning projects, favourite to homemakers around the globe. It's natural power to clean any spot, without harm to your health, is becoming proverbial now. But this is not without reason. Keep a jar of baking soda in your portable cleaning kit for times when you need some extra push in scrubbing.
Step 5Spray Bottle With Water: This is a convenient way to rinse objects that are away from the sink. You don't want to leave any residue of chemical detergents after you've cleaned a surface. Not only will look smudged after it dries, but the chemicals will still be released to the air and to your skin in case of contact. This is why you should always be certain to rinse eagerly and then wipe with a clean dry cloth.
Step 6A Lovely Compact Basket to Keep It All In: You can always store all of the items on the list in a bucket and call it a day. This is quite functional too since you'll have the bucket nearby while you clean. And while in theory, this is the most feasible container, it's not quite reasonable after all. You will need the bucket to be filled with water to mop floors and so on, so you'll need someplace else to store the rest of the tools and cleaners. A beautiful compact basket will do an amazing job. It will look pleasing and you get even more credit if it's DIY. Plenty of tutorials for this out there.
