Cleaning — there are some people who love it, but there are many people who would much rather skip it all together!
We’ve all got to do a little cleaning at some point though, and when we do, we want to make our lives as easy as possible. Whether that’s in the house, out in the garden, or cleaning the car, there are little things you can do to make your life a bit easier and get the job done quicker.
Here are some simple ways to make cleaning an easier experience.
Leave Your Shoes at the Door
Mud on the floors and carpets is a common thing we have to clean up, but if you leave your shoes at the door, you’re going to bring a lot less mud into the house.
The thing about mud is that it takes more than just a quick go with the vacuum cleaner to get it out. It often sticks to your carpets and requires you to get on your hands and knees and do some spraying and scrubbing to get rid of it.
If you have a no shoes in the house policy, then it’s going to make cleaning the floors and carpets a bit easier.
Wash Windows on a Cloudy Day
We all want to do the outdoor jobs when it’s nice outside, but cleaning your windows on a sunny day can actually make your life more difficult. If it’s warm and sunny, it can cause your window cleaner to dry before you can wipe it up which leaves streaks everywhere.
It might not be as nice to clean your windows on an overcast day, but it will help you get the job done better.
Car Paint Protection
Keeping your car clean is important, but for most people it’s a hassle. However, when you get auto paint protection for your car, it makes cleaning so much easier.
The protection forms an invisible plastic layer over your car’s exterior, which stops scratches and makes it more difficult for mud to stick to. This means less mud and dirt, and much easier cleaning.
Pull Weeds Regularly
Out in the garden, one of the enemies of keeping things tidy are weeds. They seem to sprout anywhere and everywhere and can be impossible to keep on top of.
One of the best things you can do is pull a few weeds everyday rather than letting them accumulate and then have to do one massive weed killing job. This way you keep on top of them and don’t allow them to grow out of control.
Let Sprays Soak In
Sprays are there to help you keep everything squeaky clean, but if you don’t let them soak in then you’re not giving them a chance to do their job.
To be effective, your sprays need a couple of minutes to do their work, so let them soak in before you wipe away. This will make you’re cleaning much easier.
