Thus, we are extremely happy to share cleaning tips with our customers and community.
AVOID THE ACCUMULATION OF CLOTHES AND OBJECTS
It is very simple and it saves a lot of time and money to avoid leaving clothes out of the basket clothes and papers and other objects on the floor. The solution to saving time and money is to acquire a habit to return everything to its place and to leave things in an orderly manner. Try it and you will see how much you can improve your live; at the same time, you will be amazed of yourself and realize how spacious your house is.
DEEP CLEAN THE KITCHEN
One of the places where we have to take special care is the kitchen since it is a space in the house in which we are usually in contact with the food we eat.
It is highly recommended to thoroughly clean the stove and countertops with antibacterial products after cooking each meal because bacteria remain on the surface of the stove and countertops, which can easily get transferred from our hands to our mouth. Please don’t forget everybody, specially kids, can get sick, and we want you to avoid this.
Moreover, when cleaning dishes, utensils, pots and pans, don’t reuse sponges. Why? The reason for this is that sponges absorb dirt and bacteria, and when we reuse them to wash our dishes we are actually applying dirt and bacteria to our plates, utensils, pots and pans. Therefore, we strongly recommend using a brand new sponge or a different product, such as a washable or disposable cleaning cloth.
Don’t forget to check the cabinets and drawers, so that they do not get crowded and disorganized. A way to stop accumulating things that we do not use is to give them away, donate them, or simply throw them away. We know they can be expensive, but then you would appreciate your cabinets are organized. If you donate them to a church, you would also appreciate you are helping someone in need.
Finally, we recommend deep cleaning in your kitchen every 15 days, as dirt accumulates in all kinds of corners. Use antibacterial products without ammonia or any other harmful chemicals.
AVOID THE ACCUMULATION OF GARBAGE AT ALL COSTS
We all know the typical question, “can someone take the trash out?” An infinity of excuses are given such as I am in my pajamas or I’ll throw it away later.
It is advisable to throw away the garbage every day to avoid the bag gets overflowed with garbage and to keep the surroundings of the house clean. In addition, throwing the garbage daily avoids having an unpleasant smell in the kitchen and around the house since food tends to rot, where bacteria thrive as time passes by.
CLEAN WHAT YOU SEE AND WHAT YOU DO NOT SEE
Around the house, we have to pay attention not only to what is visible, but also to what is storaged or hidden. This is the case of the cupboards since many of us see them as the perfect place in which to accumulate extra plates, cups, and saucers, and forget to clean or organize them. This is a big mistake since it should be one of the most important things to consider.
The cupboards are something that we open almost everyday and from which we take dishware out. Therefore, it is important to clean the cupboards to avoid the accumulation of dust, mildew, and dirt on the shelves.
To clean them, you have to empty them and wipe the shelves with paper towel or cloth damped with a little neutral soap. After that, we recommend to apply an antibacterial product suitable for the type of material in the cabinet, such as a special one for wood or aluminum. Once the inside the cupboard is cleaned, leave the cupboard’s doors opened until the shelves are dried. In the meantime, clean the dishware that were inside and have not been used for a long time.
Once the shelves are dried and the dishware washed and dried, put it back in the cupboard and close the doors.
You got that out of the way. Great! A satisfying feeling at the end.
HELP MAKE YOUR HOME LOOK MORE SPACIOUS
There are plenty of tricks to make our home look bigger. One of the things that you have to take into account is to have objects such as decorations, furniture, rugs, table sets at minimum. The fewer visual obstacles there are, the better, since it makes the house look spacious. Moreover, it is advisable to avoid bulky and dark furniture.
Color is very important since neutral, ivory, or earth colors cause an optical sensation of amplitude. We recommend using these colors on the walls and furniture.
In addition, high ceilings, large windows, or mirrors, which help to brighten or reflect light are other tricks that are used to achieve this sense of spaciousness.
PAY SPECIAL ATTENTION TO FLOORS AND CARPETS
Unfortunately, the floors are given little attention, but they accumulate a lot of dust and dirt. It comes into the house in many ways from our pets, our shoes, opening doors and windows, etc… Therefore, every few days, it is advisable to sweep, vacuum, or mop the floors to remove as much dirt and dust as possible.
Carpets in our bedrooms are very warm and cozy, but they could become a nest of mites and dirt. Therefore, they must be cleaned thoroughly once a week, so residents in the house do not become prone to allergies and/or respiratory problems.
We recommend to follow these tips to keep your house neat and clean, which in turn creates benefits and avoids discomfort and health problems to its residents. The cleanliness of a home is fundamental, so acquiring good cleaning habits will be of great help.
