Time Saving Tips for Cleaning #1

by / Leave a Comment

Cleaning you  house or flat just like cleaning any office or business  can take a lot of time and energy, and most people would probably rather be somewhere else. Here is a list of cleaning supplies to keep on hand, as well as a few tips to make the chore go faster:
If you live in a two storey house, keep double the cleaning supplies. Keep one set in an upstairs closet, and one downstairs. This eliminates the burden of carrying heavy buckets up and down stairs. Both floors should have a set of basic cleaning supplies.

A good basic Cleaning Kit:

• Your favorite all purpose cleaning spray
• Degreaser
• Bleach
• Toilet cleaner
• Scouring powder
• A hard bristle scrubber – a short handle
• Paper towels
• Two sponges-one with a soft, or white backing, and one with a hard, or green backing
• Window cleaning fluid-this can also be used on mirrors (or a bottle of white vinegar)
• Brass/wood polishes if needed
• Newspaper (for mirrors and windows)
• Broom and dust pan
• Mop
• Vacuum (store the “real” vacuum where there is the most carpet; and carpet sweeper where there is the least)
• Rubbish bags-both sizes small and large
