Top tips for cleaning your home


Tips to spritz your home clean



With spring now here and the sun beginning to shine its time to dust away all those winter cob webs with these great Spring cleaning tips that wont burden your finances or your time.

As a single mum of three i sometimes find cleaning up after my children can become long and very tiring, i feel i am constantly on the go cleaning, cooking and shopping, a mothers job is never done !! Then i came across these easy top tips that not only save you time but they also save you money too.



    1.Take it one room at a time

Make sure you plan ahead and choose where to begin, make a list of the areas you want to target and tackle them one step at a time. Be sure to budget time for distractions too-unexpected visitors and phone calls are inevitable!
  1. Declutter before your clean
Always declutter before a polish, make sure your area is good to go before you don your gloves and spray.
  1. Deep clean those carpets
Nothing refreshes a room more than a clean carpet, and hiring a Rug Doctor can have your carpets looking, feeling and smelling as good as new in no time.

  1. Make your vases blooming lovely
What better way to freshen up your home than with a bunch of sweet-smelling blooms. Handpick some flowers from your garden for a sweet smelling aroma.
  1. Add a splash of vinegar to make those windows shin
 A top tip for making those windows squeaky clean is to add some vinegar   to water and spray onto the glass, then simply wipe clean with a dust free cloth.
  1. Care for your curtains
Are your curtains looking drab? Well take them down, remove the hooks and give them a quick cycle in the dryer with a wet towel to rid the dust.
  1. Revamp your wardrobe
Empty your wardrobe of all your clothes and give it a good scrub, you never know you might find a couple of items you’d forgotten about too.


  1. Open the windows for fresh air


Winter is over so open up those windows and let the good fresh air billow through your home.
  1. Start from the top and work your way down
With each room start at the ceiling and get rid of the cobwebs before working your way down walls and finishing with the floor.
      
        10.  Get the kids to lend a hand
    
     Share the workload with your loved ones, even the most unwilling helper can make a big difference in the work load.
