Who doesn’t like a clean house? The surreal and peaceful feeling it gives you when you enter a clean house is amazing – and with many of us working from home during this time, it’s more important than ever!
If you’re one of those people who are obsessed with a daily clean, then you will probably enjoy the following ‘clean my house’ hacks from WD-40®. Not only will these save you some time (which we all need at the moment!) but will also help you keep your house neat, clean and tidy.
Dirt Trapping Door Mats
Are you tired of seeing dirt everywhere in your house time and time again just after you’ve cleaned it? Doormats are the answer! Doormats are highly effective in trapping dirt. So, if you do not want dirt to enter your house again after you have cleaned it, doormats will do the trick. Have a doormat inside, as well as outside the house. This will prevent the dirt attached to the shoes from entering the house. This works especially well in winters when the boots are all muddy and wet. However, make sure you keep the mats clean as well, otherwise, you will just be contributing to the mess in your house.
Best Way to Hoover
So, you hoover every other day, but the house doesn’t seem clean? Does it feel like your hoover is missing lots of bits? Maybe you are hoovering the wrong way. According to the experts, there is a right way of vacuuming as well. They say that if you want to achieve the best results, start with vacuuming the room horizontally first. Once done horizontally, you can then move on to vertically to get all the trapped dirt from the carpets or the floors. In addition to this, vacuuming too fast is also not recommended by experts. In fact, they suggest vacuuming slowly as doing it fast will not pick up all the dirt particles.
Create A Cleaning Schedule
Another ‘Clean My House’ hack to consider is creating a schedule to keep on top of tasks. Just like any other thing, you need to start cleaning your house with a cleaning plan in mind. We all get random cleaning bursts when we see something dirty. However, if you want to keep your cleaning process smoother and efficient, plan beforehand and stick with it.
When tackling a room carefully observe everything in the room that needs your attention. Once you have it all in mind, start from one side. Begin with the things on the top and continue cleaning towards the bottom. This will prevent extra work. Do it in a circle, starting from one corner of the room and ending it on the same corner afterwards as well. Once you are done with one room, move to the next. Do not move back and forth as it will tire you up and you might miss important spots too.
