Guests on their way? Use these simple tips to transform your pit into a show home. No one will ever believe that 30 minutes ago the place was trashed.
Make a cleaning playlist | Love singing along to a bit of 90s pop? Make cleaning the house fun by creating a playlist that you can listen to while you tidy.
Clean room by room | If you have company coming, make tidying the rooms they will see a priority, then move onto the others if you have time.
Stay focused | It’s so easy to get distracted while cleaning and something that should only take a short amount of time ends up becoming very time consuming. That’s why you need to stay focused and set yourself a time goal in order to be more efficient.
Keep cleaning supplies handy | Instead of having all of your cleaning supplies in one location, keep what supplies are needed for each room handy to that location.
Create storage | When everything has a home, cleaning is much easier to do. Make sure you create simple storage solutions to make tidying up faster.
Tidy then vacuum | Leave all of the mopping or vacuuming till the end. Tidy up everywhere else then blitz the hoovering after.
Wipes, wipes and more wipes | Multi-purpose wipes do exactly what they say on the packet. They’re perfect for wiping down surfaces quickly, making them sparkle and smell nice.
Make the bed | A made bed will instantly make your room look and feel tidier. So make sure you aim to at least do this every morning.
Dress for success | Dress in appropriate clothing for the task in hand. If you wear comfortable clothing it will make you feel more at ease while cleaning. It may be even a good idea to dedicate some items of clothing solely to cleaning, that way you know you mean business when you put them on.
