Cleaning your house is a chore that takes a long time to do, so you call a cleaning professional to do the task for you and they zoom right through the task. Ever wonder how? Here are some great tips on how you can clean your house as fast as they do: |
#1. Efficiently remove soap scum.
Scrape it off with a plastic putty knife. It takes half the time to rub it off with a sponge. To prevent future build up, switch to synthetic liquid or gel soaps, as they're less likely to form that residue than bar soaps. It will save you from future scum-scraping - and you’ll still come out squeaky clean after a shower.
#2 Quickly dust.
You can save a lot of time with a feather duster. These dusters are very efficient - especially for cleaning blinds, pictures and hard to reach areas. They’re also great for routine dusting or just to quickly clean a room before company arrives. If you have heavy dust buildup, you might need to use a cloth or vacuum; otherwise, it’s a quick, effective approach to get that light film off of surfaces.
#3 Get stainless steel.
While stainless steel is beautiful, efficient and stain-resistant, it’s also quick to show smudges and fingerprints. One way to clean and maintain it is by pouring mineral oil on a cloth and wiping it across your countertops, sinks and other surfaces. Mineral oil repels water and increases resistance, preventing sticky materials from attaching to the steel and cutting down on your future cleaning time.
#4 Remove smells from the disposal.
Drop lemon or orange peels down the drain. Run the disposal for fifteen seconds with the water going at half-pressure, and then drop some ice cubes in the disposal and turn it on again. Turn off the disposal, put the stopper over it and fill up your sink until it’s about half-full. Pull out the stopper and let water flush out the disposal for a fresh scent.
#5 Streak-proof your windows.
Paper towels and window cleaner don't always do the trick. If your windows are small, use newspaper to clean the glass and avoid streaks. If your windows are particularly large, use a squeegee. This cuts down on time and helps you reach the edges where lots of dust can build up.
#6 Vacuum in half the time.
Utilize the central outlet in your home. By plugging your vacuum cleaner into the central outlet, you save time on re-plugging it. If your vacuum has a particularly short cord, add an extension cord and hold it as you vacuum to avoid sucking it up.
#7 Use magic erasers!
Magic erasers can clean almost any surface, floor or ceiling. They can be used on laminate, tile and wood - and they can get rid of everything from stains to grime to crayon marks. Using magic erasers can sometimes slash your cleaning time in half, if not more.
These are a few of the many tricks cleaning pros use to get through your house in a flash. By adding them to your own cleaning routine, you’ll spend less time working on your home and more time just enjoying it.
