Life hacks and advice of experienced housewives for those who do not want to wipe the dust for hours, mop the floors and collect the hair of the beloved dog or cat from the carpet.
Devote hours to washing floors with irobot Roomba comparison, removing dust from carpets and flooring, washing windows, when you can meet friends at this time, read your favorite book or watch a movie?
And what if it is necessary to clean the apartment, and you need to do this quickly and without spending the last effort?
The main rule of energy-saving time management is not to postpone all things to the last moment. It’s much easier to spend 20-30 minutes a day cleaning every day than to kill it all Saturday.
Do not try to clean everywhere and immediately. It is better to mentally divide the house into plots and take them in turn. For example, on Monday, wash the sinks in the kitchen and in the bathroom, on Tuesday vacuum and wipe the floor, on Wednesday take time out the windows, on Thursday clean the stove and refrigerator.
An alternative method is “circular cleaning”: on the first day, you clean up all surfaces in the house above eye level, the second - at eye level, the third - below eye level and so on. This will help turn cleaning into a game, and even if some things remain for the weekend, with this approach you will still have time for a walk or going to the theater.
Even after cleaning, the house does not seem clean to me. What am I doing wrong?
You may have chosen the wrong cleaning products. Old rags, which are still used in many houses, do not collect dust, but only spread it on shelves, tables and floors.
A soap solution is also ineffective, which leaves behind stains and cannot cope with lime, rust, grease, fungi and mold. Get high-quality cleaning accessories: napkins and microfiber mops, as well as high-quality household cleaning products.
Furniture polishes, carpet, glass and mirror cleaners, water repellents and much more will help in the fight against dirt.
If you prefer an eco-friendly lifestyle, then use vinegar, mustard powder, ammonia and lemon juice in the fight against complex pollution. Or specially designed eco-friendly detergents for washing dishes, washing clothes, cleaning stoves and plumbing, etc.
The method of cleaning the house of professional cleaners
Professionals always clean from top to bottom: start with chandeliers and ceilings, then move on to cabinets and racks, then go on to windows and surfaces at eye level, then move on to upholstered furniture and only at the end deal with floors.
This method does not allow dust and small debris from shelves, for example, to fall already on a cleaned carpet or upholstered furniture.
How to keep the house clean for a long time?
A simple life hack will help reduce the amount of dust in the house: spread a newspaper or cling film on the upper surface of the cabinets and change it once every few days. This method will not allow small dirt to accumulate, fly around the room and settle everywhere.
The same can be done in the kitchen, where the dust is actively mixed with fumes and fat.
Also, to maintain order, use the “hotspots” method, that is, extinguish “hot spots” in the house every day: most often this is a mess on the table, a mountain of unwashed dishes, scattered toys. They create the feeling of a neglected, uncleaned room.
Also do not forget to regularly throw away unnecessary things. The fewer surfaces in the house on which trash accumulates, the longer the cleanliness is maintained.
What should I do if cleaning makes me stressed?
Try to add a touch of joy to this tedious process. For example, turn on your favorite music, TV series or an exciting audio book. Prepare yourself a pleasant surprise in advance, such as a delicious treat, and when the job is done, reward yourself for your hard work.
To ensure that cleaning does not take much time and energy, get “smart” helpers: a humidifier or an air purifier, a dishwasher and a robot vacuum cleaner.
The technique does not stand still, and some models of robotic vacuum cleaners, such as the iLife V8s model , can not only collect dust, but also mop the floor. The iLife V8s has 14 high-precision sensors for orientation in space, thanks to which the vacuum cleaner will not damage the furniture and will not let a single centimeter of the floor pass.
The new device has two cleaning brushes, which makes cleaning more effective if pets live in the apartment. The iLife V8s robot vacuum cleaner works autonomously and, if necessary, is connected to a charging station itself.
Cleaning will become a more pleasant and faster process if you listen to your favorite music or audiobook during it. In order not to miss your favorite verse or aria due to the sound of water, put on your headphones. You can also buy a silent vacuum cleaner. Sing along to your favorite artists, and the minutes of cleaning will fly by!
