Just stick to this article and save your time.
1. Start Cleaning The Entire House Instead of Picking Up One Area At a Time.
Yes, you were doing it wrongly. It is much time taking to pick a room once, clean it then coming to another and so on. Rather choose to clean entirely from one end to another end. It will save your time and cleaning will become more efficient.
2. Clean Top To Bottom And Left To Right.
Cleaning should be done in a right way. Start cleaning from top for example ceilings, fans, etc to bottom for example floors, furniture etc. Similarly always clean left to right to ensure that every part has cleaned and you haven’t left anything.
3. Keep All The Cleaning Essentials Handy
This is a crucial step when it comes to save your time. I have seen many people and even sometimes I was doing the same mistake of not keeping cleaning essentials handy. As a result, I end up running for whatever I need again and again. Avoid this wastage of time. Always put whatever you need in a bucket and keep that bucket with yourself when you are cleaning.
4. Clear The Mess Up Clutter First
Go to each room and make sure to divide your clutter into three sections- to donate, to dump or to keep. Before cleaning, it is essential to clear the entire clutter and set up a breathing space to clean effectively.
5. Avoid Streaks When You Wipe Mirrors And Glass
Streaks are so unhealthy and make the glasses to look unclean. Whenever you wipe glasses or mirrors use a wet microfiber and a dry cloth. After wiping with microfiber, wipe the surfaces with a dry cloth. It will clean all the streaks and give a clean and transparent look.
Add these amazing microfibre cloth in your wishlist. I have been using these two years and they do their job amazingly.
6. Turn Off Fans When You Dust
Dusting is common to cleanliness. To make sure that whatever you are dusting, it becomes completely dust free and clean, make sure to turn the fans off. By not doing so, you are allowing dust to again settle down on your furniture. It can double your time for dusting.
7. Sweep First And Then Mop
Begin from the corner and continue till every end gets swept. After sweeping, do not forget to mop from the ending corner of your home until the entry door. Rinse the mop frequently. Always use a clean mop and add some detergent or disinfecting liquid to the mopping water for the effective cleaning.
8. Let The Cleaner Dissolve Dirt and Stains.
Do not push yourself into a harder scrubbing while you clean kitchen and bathroom surfaces. Spray the cleaner and let it do the job. Let it settle for some time and it will dissolve dirt and stains so that you can easily clean the surface. Meanwhile, get yourself occupied in dusting or mopping other areas.
9. Change Bedsheets Before Sweeping
We often think to make the cleaning job quicker. Amid this, we neglect our bedsheets and change them after the whole cleaning is done. Do not do that. Always change sheets, pillow covers and even sofa covers before you start sweeping but after dusting.
It should be in the order like- Clearing clutter, dusting, changing sheets, sweeping and mopping.
10. Make Cleaning a Group Activity
Now cleaning will be more fun than before. Ask and discuss with your family, after that plan a day to clean together. If one person of the family will help even in one chore only, you will finish the chore in no time. You will enjoy the process, talking and cleaning together.
11. Play Your Favorite Song
Of course it will do wonders. Isn’t it? You are all set with your favourite song playing behind to lift your mood up on the process. You will sing, dance, listen and clean.
