indoor cleaning

Indoor cleaning can be an exceptionally tedious task, especially if you don’t know how to do it. Dusting and cleaning has to be approached in a methodical and calculated manner, just like any other job. If you start sweeping away right at the centre without thinking it through, all you’re going to get is more mess and a tired back.

There are a few very handy tips which you can employ at your home to make the cleaning job a ton easier. You won’t have to overextend yourself for this; all the materials are already available in a typical household.

Blinds

Vinegar is the key. That’s right; vinegar has a lot of uses aside from a cooking substrate. Mix an arbitrary amount of vinegar with roughly half the amount of water and shake it thoroughly. Spray it over the blinds or window shutters and wipe away with a cloth. This way it will take a much longer time for the dust to accumulate again and you won’t have to dust it every week or so.

Ceiling fans

Ceiling fans can be exceptionally tiresome to clean but what’s even more bothersome is the chaos they leave in their wake. You can’t clean the fans without clearing away everything underneath it in a five meter radius.

The simple solution to this is to use a ragged old pillowcase and slide it over each blade of the fan, one by one, collecting all the dust. All the filth will be collected inside the pillowcase which you can dust off outside at intervals before proceeding to the next blade.

Fridge

To prevent the refrigerator grills from having to be cleaned every month or so, it is advised that you cover them in plastic food wrap. Simply replace the wraps every time they get dirty; No more hassle.

Glasses

This can apply to windows, or drinking glasses. As previously mentioned, vinegar works really well as a cleansing agent. Soak a paper towel in vinegar and then use that to wipe the glasses. It will do the trick.
