Miscellaneous cleaning
  • Windows- Remember to clean the outside as well as the inside. Doing this on a cloudy day insures that the cleanser doesn't dry prematurely.
  • Stainless Steel- Use a specialised cleaning solution on the areas you want sparkling. Continue cleaning once every week to keep them that way.
  • Countertops– Consider having your countertops sealed again to prevent damage. Also, clean up any unwanted spills as they happen.
  • Silver- Do not use a dishwasher for these. Instead use something small to clean them, such as a toothbrush with special silver foam. This helps to protect against any unnecessary scratching.
  • Wood Floors- Mopping these floors too often can ruin them, in actuality you should mop once every 2 months, simply spot-clean the rest of the time. Remember to use furniture protectors to prevent surface scratching.
  • Tiling- Create a homemade cleaner with baking soda and water, then use a mop or sponge to clean the surface.
  • Closet- Closet cleanliness is all about organisation. Get rid of any old unused clothes then sort what remains. You can categorise them by colour, style or whatever works for you.
  • Bedding- Pillowcases and sheets should be cleaned every two weeks, whilst your actual pillow and duvet should be washed 3 times a year.
  • Mattress- Use your vacuum’s crevice tool to clean every nook and cranny then spray it over with some disinfectant spray.
  • Painted Walls- Maintenance is key here. Routinely spot clean these walls with a cloth or sponge. Consider using a little washing up liquid if the mark persists.
  • Bookshelves- Sort all your books by size and then subject, prioritising large imposing books on top. Mix it up by stacking some books vertically and others horizontally, this helps take away the monotony of rows.
  • Broom- A simple solution; use a broom along with warm, soapy water as needed.
