When you love your home, you take care of both the exterior and interior. Looking after and maintaining your ‘stuff’ means your house will always be sparkly and fresh. And it also ensures that daily life runs smoothly and you are more organized. Well, the great thing is, the more you look after the little things, the less there is do in the long run. Cleaning and caring for your home on a regular basis ensures that things get done on a weekly basis. This saves you having to face a mammoth spring or fall clean. Here are some sure-fire ways to get you started. As we well know, all the appliances we buy unfortunately have a shelf life. For example, if you have an air conditioning unit, you should always make sure it has had an up to date service and is good working order. Always check your A/C unit ready for the warmer months. If you notice that your thermostat isn’t working correctly or your energy bills, have increased it may be time to call in the professionals. Always keep your appliances clean on the inside and as well as the outside to ensure they are working to an optimum level. It is best to get your oven professionally cleaned on a yearly basis. Keeping the gaskets clean around your appliances also means that the seals are likely to last longer. And you should also clean your refrigerator coils every six months to make sure the appliance is running efficiently. You can check out ways to clean your fridge right here: Use a good quality washing machine cleaner once a month and always clean away any spills in the loading tray. If your appliance uses filters, make sure you always change them in the time suggested in the instruction manual. Dirty filters can stop appliances from working altogether. Lastly, make sure you have registered for the one-year warranty. This is usually included when you purchase home appliances. Every couple of weeks have a morning where you do a quick but thorough domestic blitz in your home. First up, wash the kitchen bin. Soak the lid in a bowl or sink filled with warm water and washing liquid and then rinse off with cold water. And then pour disinfectant and hot water into the bin and scrub with a long handled brush and leave to dry. Pull out the refrigerator and do a thorough clean behind the fridge. Goodness knows how crumbs and dirt get there, but they do. Use a drain cleaner product or ½ cup of bicarbonate soda and ½ cup of vinegar down the plughole to clean out your kitchen and bathroom drains. Wipe down the sink and use a limescale spray on the draining board. Then polish all the faucets and front of all kitchen appliances. Use a soft dry cloth on all your window frames to get rid of dust and any cobwebs. Use a specialist window cleaning product and one pane at a time wipe them with a microfiber cloth. For high windows invest in a professional window cleaning service every three months. Sparkly windows really make your home look fresher. If you’re doing it yourself visit sites such as for lots of easy cleaning tips. If you’re lucky enough to have crystal chandeliers in your home, then get in a professional cleaner. If like most of us, you have glass droplet chandeliers, you can clean them yourself. To do this make a mixture of one part alcohol and ten parts warm water and pour into an empty spray bottle. Make sure your lights are off and cold and then cover the bulbs with tied up sandwich bags. Then spray your mixture onto the glass droplets to get rid of dust and dirt. Due to high volumes of traffic padding in and out of the bathroom on a daily basis, this is an area that gets dirty quickly. To wash tiles use a mild detergent to wash and then with a soft cloth, you can dry them. Use an old toothbrush and mild bleach to clean away dirty grout lines. Wash your shower screen with a solution of white vinegar and warm water. And then buff dry quickly with a soft cloth. Limescale builds up quickly in a bathroom so be sure to use limescale remover on a weekly basis. Put half a lemon into your dishwasher before running a wash, and you’ll get really clean stain-free white dishes and plates. Use the other half of the lemon to scrub over wooden chopping boards and worktops.
