Did You Forget to Clean These, As Well?

You think of million things every day, every hour and every second. We all do. The era of single-tasking is something our parents and grandparents probably did in the past, but multitasking is no doubt the word of our century. We never stop doing something. We come home back from work and we think of the projects we have and the deadlines we need to stick to. We go to work the next day and our head is full with thoughts about the bathroom clean-up and the meals for dinner. And this cycle never stops. And our minds are never completely free. Because we have no day off, no hour off. And because we have so much to think of, we too often forget. And we are more than annoyed than. But how not to? How to remember all the projects youbathroom-881124_960_720 are working on right now, the problems of every person you are about to help, the schedule of the tubes, trains, airplanes, that lovely receipt for brownie your grandma gave you once, the endless to-do lists your boss sends you every day and those you create by yourself, the many home maintenance and cleaning tasks, the activities of your kids and the birthdays of every relative you have? It is almost impossible, which makes completely understandable the fact that you most probably forgot these. That’s why we are here to remind you.

The mattress

You clean your bedroom often enough. You vacuum it, remove the dust, wash the windows, change the bed sheets. And it looks lovely. But what you forget is the mattress. This thing looks nice and makes your sleep tight, but the truth is that it could accumulate far too much dust and thus cause many infections and allergies. And just how you do not like sleeping on a layer of dust, you cannot like sleeping on a dirty mattress. At least once in a while, vacuum it well and then scrub it with baking soda so that you remove all the grime.

The bathroom and kitchen faucets

Did you skip those, too? Don’t worry, because you can clean them in seconds. What you need is a paper towel and white vinegar only. With the help of these two basic supplies, you can make the faucets in the bathroom or in the kitchen shine and look like brand new. So either perfect them now or just do not forget them when performing another clean-up later.

The cleaners

Just like you cannot write with a pen that is out of ink, you cannot clean with a microfiber cloth that is full with dust. The efficiency of your cleaning is almost fully derived by the efficiency of the tools you use. So spend some time cleaning them. All the clothes, rags, heads of mops and other fabrics, put in the washing machine. The other things clean well. at the end you will be able to transform your house faster and with less efforts, that’s for sure.

You cleaned your home perfectly, but didn’t you miss these?

You cleaned your home perfectly, but didn’t you miss these?

No matter if it is a normal regular clean-up or the important end of tenancy cleaning, you are done now and you believe that your home looks absolutely stunning and is flawlessly cleaned. But what have you done indeed? The traditional vacuum-cleaning and the dust removal. Yeah, you cleaned the bathroom and the kitchen. You even spent some time taking care of the oven, though not long ago you hired one of the professional London’s cleaners for a deep clean-up and it is still shining. Ok, I admit, you made some efforts and this is commendable. However, I think that what you have done is too superficial and you have to be that naïve to believe that it is enough. Well, nothing is that easy and I bet that you haven’t cleaned these, but if you do strive for greatness, do not give up, but keep on learning. More →

The perfect cleaning motivation

The perfect cleaning motivation

If there is something magical like unicorns and rainbows and love that resist on every hindrance and princes and princesses just like in the fairytales, there would be cleaning motivation, too. But let’s not be deluded and admit that the chance to be motivated and to do the whole end of tenancy cleaning with passion is almost equal to the chance to become the next queen of Wonderland. And we read articles and even books that give us advice to make lists and to be more organized. And yeah, I know, you do your best, we all do and we end up on the sofa with a non-cleaning-tips book and a glass of wine and the life seems so flawless in that particular moment that we cannot ruin it with something so trivial.

And we do not hate the cleaning itself; we hate the idea of spending our whole weekend in the house, and not on the couch, but on our knees in the bathroom with three kinds of rags, detergents so strong that will almost stifle us and so much anger and disappointment.

Here’s a quick way to clean the bathroom

The bathroom is like the hell whilst cleaning. Yeah, we all have been told that if you take care of it on a daily basis, you won’t have any problems cleaning it after tenancy. The ugly truth is that we are always busy, taking a quick shower, brushing our teeth, without even having the chance to look at the mirror, before going to school or to work and we neglect it almost always. So in the reality the only thing we need is a quick way for cleaning this absolute disaster called bathroom.

Disinfect

The bathroom could be a home for too many bacteria, so don’t allow something like this to happen. The most popular disinfecting cleaning product is the bleach. However, there are different types on sale, so try not to choose the cheapest one, because most often it is the most harmful as well. You can, for instance, put bleach in the toilet and then wait for 10 to 15 minutes. Magic.

Clean

One of the most annoying places you will have to clean is the space between the tiles. There are detergents that could cope with this part and with cleaning the sink as well. So find only one and avoid buying too many cleaning products. The cleaning itself won’t take you a lot of time.

Wash

Don’t forget that you are in the bathroom and here you can use so much water, that you need, here absolutely nothing can go wrong. And water is indeed the best. So after you have used different cleaning products rinse out with water. If you strive for perfection you can clean the mirror with a windows detergent and after everything has dried up, you can use a microfiber cloth and take away every single particle of dust.

Who knew that oven-cleaning was so easy?

After every homemade meal arrives that special moment, which makes us scream silently from the inside, yeas, I mean the oven-cleaning. It is sure is not a delight, but as we can all agree, there are far worse things than that. Nowadays, we can prefer to use strong detergents, but there are also more natural products, that easily absorb all kind of fat and burn.13084664213_c86a0035d3

We found a couple of natural chemical liquids that you can prepare alone at home, and actually are pretty good for the purpose that they will be used for. For example – Mix water (1/4 cup), salt (1/4 cup) and baking soda (3/4 cup) into a thick paste. Wipe the oven with a damp cloth and spread the paste over the entire surface. Leave it to act overnight and in the morning wash. This method is most effective when the oven is not too dirty, so clean it regularly. Brown parts and plaque from the oven window can be cleaned, by dissolving baking soda in semi warm water. Put the solution on the surface and leave for 15 minutes. Then you will wipe the contaminated parts much easier. You can also use regular vinegar. Apply a small amount of the liquid on the cooled surface of the oven with a damp cloth and distribute it throughout the area. Give it some time to work. If contaminants are small, will be able to wipe them easily, but they are large, you will be needing a brush.

For every housewife cleaning the stove takes a major part in the main cleaning process, same goes if you are a tenant, and as you will be required to participate in an the end of tenancy cleaning, but our home is just not clean enough without it!
