1) Small jobs done regularly
Cut cleaning down to small jobs you can squeeze in here and there. These changes to your routine will keep help to keep your home clean and orderly throughout the year.
For example you’re spraying and wiping for after dinner clean up anyway, so also pop into the bathroom, spray, walk away, then come back and wipe down surfaces (with your bathroom cloth) for a cleaner start to the morning.
2) Make beds every single morning
A made bed instantly makes a bedroom look tidy, and much nicer to sleep in that night. Lavender Laundry Liquid is perfect for bed linen.
3) Let your cleaning products do the work
Choose your cleaning products wisely. If you have a big job that involves cleaning grease, oil, soap fat in the shower – then use Orange Power Cleaner undiluted to take away the elbow grease or scrubbing.
4) Clean the bathroom weekly
Cleaning the bathroom weekly is much better than letting it become a daunting job. Regular cleaning means mould, bacteria, soap residue is kept under control.
5) Spray, walk away then wipe
Some products need a little time to do their work for you, check instructions, and when you use them this way, you’ll find them more economical also. Bathroom Cleaner needs a little time, walk away for a bit, then come back to wiping.
Toilet Cleaner, with cedar and citronella, is particularly good at adhering to the loo bowl. Squeeze it under the rim and leave overnight. Then just a quick scrub in the morning is all that’s required.
Use Multi-Surface and Glass Cleaner, with lavender and lemongrass or diluted Orange Power Cleaner or diluted All Purpose Cleanser in a trigger bottle for a quick after dinner clean, remember to spray, walk away then come back and wipe, because you’re letting your products do the work.
6) Cleaning products you actually like to use
Cleaning is much more enjoyable when you use products that smell lovely when you’re using them and leave a fresh scent behind as well, such is the nature of natural essential oils, as opposed to synthetic chemical fragrances, which are just pollutants.
7) Begin the New Year organised
This is a great time of year to tackle rooms, one by one, and clear the clutter, which means it’s quicker and easier to clean during the year. Put your favourite music on and if there’s kids about get them involved too. Have 3 drop off points: rubbish, recycle, donate. It feels so good to begin the New Year clutter free and feeling highly organised.
