Cleaning your home during the summer can be a daunting task. Between the vacation schedules and kids being home, it’s not only hard to savour the season but it’s hard to manage the day-to-day chaos and mess. So, how does one go about summer cleaning? Fret not, we have got you covered.
Here are 6 stress-free home cleaning tips for the summer, without you having to break any sweat.
Spray the stain with rubbing alcohol and wipe it with a clean sponge. As alcohol evaporates quicker than water, it won’t leave a mark. If you’re worried about the fabric, then create a solution of one-part dishwashing liquid to two parts hydrogen peroxide. Spray, run in, let stand and wash.
Festering trash is a common thing people deal with in the summer. Sprinkling baking soda at the bottom of a trash can will keep bad odour at bay. If you’re using a trash bag, wad up old newspaper and put it in the bottom of the bag – this will absorb the odour and keep the bag from leaking discarded liquid products.
With more sunlight in the summer, your blinds will accumulate more dust. To avoid this, mix equal parts of water and vinegar in a bowl. Then grab a pair of old socks and put them over your hands – use one hand to dip it in the cleaning mixture and the other hand to wipe away the dampness.
A bathroom with bad odour can be quite discomforting, especially for guests who come to your home. This is a problem, especially during summers as bathrooms can be quite messy. Add a few drops of your favourite essential oil to the core of the toilet paper-- every time you use the roll, the fragrance will be released.
If you have a table filled with water rings, then hold a blow dryer on high close to the ring until it disappears. You can dab a little olive oil on the area to recondition the wood if necessary.
Cleaning a microwave can be quite difficult, especially when it has age-old stains that are hard to get rid of. Slice a lemon into a bowl of water and put it in the microwave on high for 3 minutes. Let it sit in the microwave for another 3 minutes then simply wipe the inside of the microwave clean with paper towels.
