Now, lets head start into the cleaning process.
The most common place that accumulates grease and gunk is the kitchen. And it is okay if you couldn’t (for any reason) clean it during your winter. Start with soaking your stove tops with wet drier sheet. It soaks the dirt enough to help you clean it easily. While the stove top is busy being soaked, go ahead and clean the microwave oven.
It is very easy to clean when you place a cut lemon in it and run the appliance for 2 minutes. The citrus acts as a strong detergent and cleans the grease. With just a tissue’s wipe, your oven is now squeaky clean. White vinegar is also another good cleaning ingredient. Pour 2 – 3 cups of it in your dishwasher and run it a hot cycle. Now, you can get back to your stove and clean it with vinegar or any other strong detergent to scrub off the dirt.
If you have ever cleaned the curtains, you’d understand how much manpower and physical labor it needs. Clean smart this time using steam iron and vacuum. Carpets and rugs are another heavy bunch that needs a thorough cleansing. You can either choose to sprinkle a generous amount of baking soda on them and sun dry them or soak them in your bathtub with heavy detergents and baking soda.
Change the water for every two hours and continue the same routine thrice. This process will ensure that all the dirt and its residue is washed off. Do you know? Your clothes love alcohol as much as you do! Yes, get some affordable vodka and sprinkle it on all you winter clothing. This doesn’t only remove the musty smell, but your clothes stay fresh after a good rinse.
The corners of the tap, wall and loo are the muddiest ones because all the dirt get accumulated there easily and are the toughest spots to clean. Use the magic potion of white vinegar and baking soda to clean those hard spots. The walls also need some cleansing – use your mop to freshen them. Add vinegar to the water that you use for the mop, it will also help you remove the odor.
Mirrors can get stained and foggy pretty easily. Use your old t-shirt to wipe them in the first instance and then apply a little toothpaste to the mirror. Rub it off thoroughly with a newspaper or tissues. This trick will make sure that the mirrors aren’t foggy right after the shower. You can also clean the windows with newspaper for a spotless cleaning.
While cleaning your house is important, it is also crucial that you understand your safety. Some of the chemicals and detergents you use are very harsh to the skin. So, ensure to wear gloves all the time you use the cleaning products.
