Cleaning for guests in under an hour
Tidying up your home quickly is always a splendid strategy, as it enables you to deal with other tasks and gives you more downtime. That being said, it is important not to compromise speed for efficiency, i.e. cleaning in such a way that leaves the place wanting more cleaning. You should establish a system. Aside from that, you should know what home clean-up tasks to attend to and the best ways to do them. Here are few tips to guide you through this procedure:
Bed room (around 15 minutes) – a clean sweep is required here. Strip down sheets and pillowcases and throw these in the washing machine. A simple declutter is in order: everything that does not seem vital should enter your table dresser and wardrobe. The more Undaunted look you can give the place, the tidier it will certainly be. Do not forget to make your bed. Swiftly dusting the room can make a substantial difference. Use a dry microfibre towel and work your way from left to right. At this point, you can dump dust on the floor, because you will be actually vacuuming next. Bring out your hoover and start from the furthest corner of the space.
Kitchen area (about 15 mins) – toss all the dirty dishes in the dish washer. Devote a few moments to identify clutter on the counter tops and eliminate it. Get rid of hard-to-clean gunk off the kitchen counter and oven with a scraper. Get a bottle of all-purpose spray and wipe kitchen counters from the back to the front, brushing all the crumbs at the floor. Do not forget to wipe the fridge, dishwasher and oven as well. Sweep the floor, beginning with the far corner and working your way towards the door.
Living room (around 15 minutes) – start by getting rid of the clutter. Locate what is out of place and store it. Dust the room by beginning with a corner and working your way from left to right, similarly to how you did in other spaces. You will need to use a long arm duster for blinds. Clean glass surfaces by spraying a microfibre cloth with a cleanser and wiping in circular motions. Speed-vacuum the room to finish the job.
With that said, you are now done cleaning the four most frequented rooms in less than an hour. This approach does wonders when you are expecting guests or when you just really don’t have that much time to take care of home cleaning all at once.
Bathroom (around 10 mins) – begin with some preparation work: spray the bathroom sink, shower and bath tub with an all-purpose spray (vinegar and water works very well) and let it sit. Brush the toilet with baking soda and the exterior of the tank and toilet with a microfibre cloth material. Clean the mirror as well – spray some glass cleanser and wipe in a circular motion. Return to cleaning the tub, sink and shower. You can wipe with a moist cloth and do some scouring on persistent stains. Finish the job in the area by washing the floor from the far corner working your way towards the doorway.
