Here are some tips for some normal cleaning activities that you may do on a regular basis. These tips are designed to help you clean more effectively and this will ultimately lead to a cleaner home.My number one tip for cleaning projects is to start from the top and work your way down. By doing this, all of the dust that you move during cleaning will fall to the ground. The last step in cleaning should always be the floors because of this. Do everything else before you clean the floors and your home will look and feel a lot cleaner.
If you decide to clean your windows, choose a cloudy day to do this. If you work in direct sunlight, your windows are more likely to have streaks left on them because of the sun. The sun will cause the cleaning solution to dry really fast and this is often what leaves streaks on your windows. Also, clean your windows with a mixture of vinegar and water for very clean windows.
Another cleaning activity that you might forget to do is your screens. The inside of your windows and your screens is the perfect place for dust to settle. Clean this by starting with a vacuum that has an attachment. Use the attachment to clean these areas and then get a bucket full of soapy water to finish. Use a mild detergent and hot water and then use a sponge to clean the screens and window sill areas and these will look great.
