Feeling the urge to clean? Your bedroom is a good decide. Now, if you really are in a mood, give the whole house a makeover, better be guided with the tips we have here for better results… 

Where to start:

  • Look at each room and identity specific tasks. Make a list of cleaning priorities. Share the fun with family members.
  • Kitchen: wash and wax wood floors and mop vinyl floors. Clean out refrigerator and pantry. Change shelf-liners. Straighten junk drawer. Wipe down cabinet.
  • Bathroom: Use lint-free cloths or a squeegee to wash windows inside and out. Dust the sill. Vacuum the window well.
  • Window treatments: Vacuum draperies. Wash blinds. Replace heavy drapes with lightweight or sheer curtains.
  • Furniture: Polish furniture, wash upholstery, vacuum between cushions. Clean behind and under sofas and cabinets.
  • Closets: Give old clothes and furniture to charity. Vacuum floors. Dust shelves. Hang cedar blocks to freshen the areas.

How to start:

  • Always start at the top of the room and work your way down.
  • Always clean top to bottom. When you dust, start at the top and work down.

  • Take all your cleaning tools with you into each room to avoid unnecessary trips back and forth.
  • Unplug the phone and turn off he TV.
  • Eliminate clutter. An uncluttered home looks better than one that is dust-free but strewn with odds and ends.

  • Clean as you go! It takes a lot less time to remove new dirt than old, and to clean and put away stuff as you use it, than to clean and store the pile-up you can accumulate.
  • A house that smells fresh will give the impression of cleanliness. Leave baking soda on carpeting for the night to absorb musty odors, vacuum in the morning.
  • Keep a big astro-turf mat on the porch to cut down on tracked-in dirt.
  • Keep a basket in the kitchen for the mail, newspaper, car keys to help with clutter.

  • Keep a hamper in every bathroom.
  • Make everyone in-charge of making his or her bed and picking up their stuff.
  • Always pickup the TV room before bedtime and start the dishwasher.
  • Prioritize - if your time is limited decide what is most important.
  • Delegate - get the entire family involved.
  • Make a checklist, when a job is completed, check it off – you’ll feel as though you are really accomplishing something.

Clean doors, great impression:

  • If company is coming, clean and wash the doors in your house. No one knows why, but your whole house looks good.
  • Scrub the door from top to bottom with a rag and soapy water, using a scrub brush for especially tough spots.
  • While you’re at it, wipe down the top edge of the frame. With all the dust that collects up there, it probably looks like velvet.
  • Along with the upper side of a ceiling fan, the top of the door is one of the most missed spots in the home.

Blood Stains:

  • Put a paste of water and cornstarch, cornmeal or talcum powder on fresh spots.
  • Let dry and brush off.
  • Cover fresh or dried stains with meat tenderizer and add cool water.
  • After 15 to 30 minutes, sponge off with cool water.
  • Fresh blood on leather? Dab on a little hydrogen peroxide. After it bubbles, wipe it off.
  • If you get blood on fabric, quickly wet a long piece of white cotton thread with saliva and place it across the spot. The tread will absorb the blood.
