Helena Garfield, Negosentro | Cleaning isn’t a glamorous topic, but it needs to get done. It really is shocking how dirty a home can get if we leave things go and it can actually become unhealthy if you leave things build up too much. The reality is you don’t want to spend an entire day cleaning the house. It may be an option to get a cleaner in to do it, but they can be surprisingly expensive. If you own a small business, you will likely have very little time, but you might not want to spend the money on a cleaning either. This infographic from Half Price explains how you can get the most important areas of the house done in an hour. It won’t look amazing, but it will look a whole lot better than if you didn’t and when you have guests over, they won’t be shocked at what a mess your place is in. Over the holiday season especially, you can have more visitors than usual.
Okay, let’s get started on the cleaning and get your artillery ready. Perhaps, get a music playlist going to keep you motivated as you clean. Get into some very old clothing, something that you won’t mind ruining as cleaning this fast can be a bit of a workout as well. When we’re working so hard, we can often forget to exercise so this may replace at least one trip to the gym every week!
When you’re ready to go, it’s about working methodically through each room and working on the main areas that gather dust etc. In the kitchen, a good way to get the microwave clean is to pour 1cm vinegar into a cup and top with 1cm of water and cook for 90 seconds. This helps to remove any gunk in the microwave so all you then have to do is give it a quick wipe and it will look great. Don’t waste the 90 seconds watching the microwave and complete some other task in the mean time that needs doing in the kitchen.
Now it’s time to move through the other rooms so head on over to the living room and dining room. Electronics are great at gathering dust so really focus on dusting around them. Bathrooms are another vital area as if you have guests over, the bathrooms are one of the places they often look around. Make sure these are in good condition as a guest never likes to see a dirty bathroom.
Even just for yourself, a clean home is great will make you feel happier. If you’re an entrepreneur trying to get things done at home, research has shown that people are more productive in cleaner environments. A clean home also reduces your risk of sickness, and the last thing you want when you’re busy is to get sick. Check out the full infographic now for more cleaning tips. Hopefully it will be of some use to you.
