Cleaning, if almost all of us go with the right time, in a hurry for everything we do. We run to the shopping, to work, to get the children to school, to prepare lunch, dinner … How tired! But to clean the house , when do we make time? Well, by following these small and easy indications we will have our home like the jets of gold and thus when the weekend comes, cleaning is easier for us, saving time for ourselves and our family. I tell you about the ritual that we perform in my house to keep it clean.
The countertop, plate and sink:
We will pass a microfiber cloth (it does not have to be a specific one) through the kitchen countertop , they serve those sold in all large commercial areas; We moisten it with water and a little detergent passing it all over the countertop and through the sink, we will rinse it well when we see that it is dirty. We will repeat the process until we finish cleaning it, with another dry cloth we pass it to dry and place all the things.
For the hob, glass-ceramic or induction (I have gas but it is glass like the vitro), we will also use a microfiber cloth with a little neutral detergent, with which we will not be able to damage the surface. If we want, we can also use a specific one for cleaning this type of plates . The problem is when cooking something has come out of the saucepan or the pan and it has become dry, if this happens to us, we will spray well with a degreasing spray on the entire surface where the food is stuck, clarifying very well next (we will do it until we have no food or detergent left), finish by polishing with another cloth.
Clean faucets and microwaves:
To clean both the taps in the house and the microwave , all we have to do is moisten a cloth and we will carefully scrub all the corners, rinsing very well and passing it again as many times as necessary, with another cloth we will polish the taps and thus they will look like a mirror.
If there are dried splashes of food inside the microwave, we will easily clean them by putting a bowl of water and half a lemon to heat for several minutes, letting the steam do its job. Finally, we pass a damp cloth checking how all the food remains disappear. We already have our microwave clean and ready to use!
You will only need to pass them a microfiber cloth moistened with ammonia (always leave the window open when we do this to air the room), then we will dry with another cloth and they will stay shiny. If we want the cleaning to last a little longer, then we will wipe them with a little glass cleaner and then rub to polish them.
The garbage can and dishes, pans, etc .:
To clean and disinfect the garbage can, before going to bed, we leave it with water and a jet of bleach and in the morning before going to work we rinse it. We already have the garbage can clean and germ-free.
If you have guests or you have not fit the dishes, pans, etc. in the dishwasher , at night we will leave everything to soak and thus if we want to scrub them in the morning it will take very little to remove the remains of food from the previous day.
The sink, the toilet, the screen, the bidet, etc. they form the most used room of the house and that, due to their functions, are the most thankless to clean. At home we take turns to do it, I tell you how we do it:
First we clean the toilet or toilet, we disinfect it with an antibacterial product , passing the brush over the entire surface, scrubbing from top to bottom and then in circles, passing it several times where the water comes out; we let it act while we clean the rest of the toilets. When we finish cleaning, we will pull the chain so that the water carries away all the dirt.
To remove the drops from the mirror, I use an ammonia spray reduced with water, drying it with kitchen paper or absorbent paper, this same method can be used to clean the rest of the window glass in our house.
For the washbasin, shower tray and bathtub we use a specific product with which we do not damage the lacquered surfaces. In places where the water is hard (it contains a lot of lime) we will use an anti-scale product, one of which does not need rinsing after use, if possible in a spray, removing everything with a damp cloth.
The screen can be cleaned more easily if we wipe it with a microfiber cloth as soon as we finish showering or bathing, in this way we will not have to clean it later.
The floor of the house:
If we mop every day we will avoid dry and encrusted stains. In this way, we will leave it perfect for the weekend.
The coffee table and the doors:
We will only have to use a cleaner and spray it over the entire surface, we will rub with a microfiber cloth until everything is clean. There are also spray wipes and cleaners that delay the appearance of dust for several days.
Carpets, sofas and armchairs:
We will only have to vacuum them once a week. The ones that take more work are the sofas and armchairs, since we will have to remove the cushions and then vacuum all the grooves with the small nozzle. When you finish, replace the cushions and everything is clean.
