Days are going to be longer and also the weather is warming. It means that the spring cleaning is on top of your to do’s list. That is why some days we started to give you some useful tips to give you the chance to better organize your job. We started with the living room, the bathroom, bedroom and kitchen.
Today is time to give you a list of tips for your laundry room.
- Open windows for ventilation.
- Pick up all items from the floors and move them to the appropriate places.
- Starting with the highest point, like door frames and window frames, dust all furniture from the top down.
- Take everything out of your cabinets and closets, reorganize and refold. Wipe down the shelves and the insides with the microfiber cloth and an all-purpose cleaner.
- Wash cabinet doors and handles with a microfiber cloth and an all-purpose cleaner or enzyme cleaner.
- Wipe down washer and dryer with a wet cloth and an all-purpose cleaner.
- Deep clean the washer with a special product. If not, then at least wipe out a mould (and use an anti-mould product) and clean out the dirt around the drum and in the detergent tray.
- Wipe down walls and boards to remove dust.
- Hoover and mop the floor. Clean the grout if needed (and if applicable)
- Refresh cleaning supplies.
As you might have noticed, we mostly mention baking soda, vinegar, enzyme cleaner and all-purpose cleaner to clean your house. These cleaners are very well suited for everyday use and are both economical and natural. Should you have other preferred cleaners, use those.
Note on the baking soda: you can use baking soda for cleaning but washing soda is a more powerful cleaner. You can make your own washing soda by baking the baking soda in the oven at 400 degrees F for 1 hour (stirring it 1-2 times in the middle) or you can buy a ready-made version.
There might be other rooms in your home that need cleaning, but the guidelines above will work for those rooms as well. So, while the motivation lasts – fly your windows open and get cleaning!!!
