Disclaimer: This is a sponsored blog post. It’s nice to get your home nice and clean after the hectic time that is Christmas and New Year. The beginning of the year is when many people have a spring clean. It’s a good idea to have a refresh and consider new cleaning tips, to help keep your home beautiful and clean. Hopefully you will find these tips helpful, as I know cleaning for some people can be a chore. I personally break my cleaning tasks down so that I don’t feel overwhelmed, which you will see from the cleaning tips below.
Throw away any clutter
Having a clear out and de-cluttering your home is a great thing to do, as it helps to avoid any hoarding. This will ultimately create more space also. You could set yourself a target to declutter one room each week, such as in the bathroom you can throw away any expired products.
Set up a cleaning routine
This one is particularly useful for me as when my mental health is bad, I sometimes struggle to certain tasks. Getting myself into a routine can really help me though. Even if I just get into the routine of cleaning a particular room on a specific day – I find it very helpful and it usually makes me feel better. A favourite of mine is putting fresh bedding on, after cleaning/tidying the rest of the bedroom. You could even have a specific day where you focus on a certain task e.g. Mondays – laundry, Tuesdays – Bedroom, Wednesday – Kitchen, etc. You get the idea!
Invest in a good quality vacuum cleaner
The vacuum cleaner is one of the most important tools you will use within your cleaning routine. A powerful and good quality vacuum will ensure that everything is picked up by it from the floor. Popular brands include Dyson, who have a variety of different designs, including cordless.
Give your oven some TLC
Keep the main part of your kitchen sparkly clean by regularly cleaning out the oven. The oven is used almost daily by most households, so it’s no surprise that ovens can become dirty very quickly.
Clean as you go
A good idea for cleaning as you go is, fill your sink with warm soapy water just as you start cooking dinner. This is so dishes, pans, cutlery, plates, etc can be placed in the sink to soak as you are eating. Wipe up spills straight away, otherwise oils and spices may leave staining and they may be harder to remove if left.
