Ever wondered no matter how pedantic you are towards cleaning house, you can never do as good of a job as the professionals? Find out what their tricks are.
11. DIY cleaning solutions
Want to know the secret to streak-free mirrors and windows? Well, it’s an easy at-home solution you can make yourself. According to Rapinchuk, all you need is:
- 1 1/2 cups water
- 1 1/2 tablespoons white vinegar
- 1 1/2 tablespoons rubbing alcohol
- 3 drops peppermint essential oil
Washing windows and mirrors is probably the least favorite cleaning tasks.
12. Clean the toilet daily
If you swish your toilet every day with your cleaning brush, you’ll keep it relatively clean without a ton of hard labour.
Use the water already in the toilet to swish the entire toilet bowl.
Your bathroom probably gets dirtiest the fastest and is the hardest to clean.
13. Skip the polish
Of course, you need to polish your wooden furniture and hardwood floors every once in a while (once or twice a year, or when they begin to look foggy), but all you really need to keep them shiny is a dry microfiber cloth.
“Your furniture will actually get less dusty without using furniture polish,” says Reichert.
