There is a lot to be said for using spare time productively, and many people will look to ensure their home is spotlessly clean during the lockdown. Many of us are placing a greater focus on hygiene, so a clean home is likely to be a priority for many at the moment.
At Foxes, we are pleased to say we have helped many local vendors connect with buyers, and sell their home. A clean home is just one of the critical components of the sales process, and we have helped many achieve this goal.
Of course, you do not need to sell your home to benefit from a clean house. With our deep clean tips, you can create a happy, healthy and hygienic environment at your house.
Make your bedroom a more welcoming area
You might be spending more time in your bedroom these days, so you’ll want to ensure it is clean and orderly.
If you have blinds, and you find them problematic to clean, help is available. A novel way to clean your shades is to use a clean sock, dipped in vinegar and water. When you have cleaned one side of the blinds, twist them, and then clean the other side.
Freshen your mattress and bedding
It is vital to maintain a good sleeping pattern right now, and freshening your bedroom and matters is a smart idea. Vacuum your mattress to remove dust and hair particles and if there are any stains or odours, use an upholstery cleaner. You can also use baking soda and essential oil to add some spring to the mattress.
Make sure your kitchen is fit for purpose
The kitchen is an integral room at all times, and you want to ensure it is clean and hygienic.
If you are concerned about your drains, there is a quick and simple way of clearing it. Mixing a cup of baking soda and two cups of vinegar, and then pouring it down the drain, will help you to clear any blockages. If you are keen to add a citrus scent to the room, add lemon slices.
After leaving the mixture to settle for a few minutes, use boiling water to clean it away.
Baking soda and vinegar work wonders on your oven
This might be the ideal time to tackle the oven. You need something powerful to clean an oven, and a mixture of vinegar, baking soda and dish soap will be of benefit. You will still need to do some scrubbing, but the more robust your cleaning mixture, the easier the process is.
Other quick cleaning tips to consider:
- A coffee filter is excellent for cleaning your computer or laptop screen
- Carpet stains can be ironed out by placing a wet rag on the carpet, setting the iron to “steam” and spraying the stain with a mixture of water and vinegar
- Magnetic cloths are perfect for cleaning bookshelves
- Vinegar and soap is ideal for washing shower walls
