How to Clean Your House in 1 Day
Let’s face it. The idea of keeping your home clean sounds easy but actually doing it is quite a task. For some of us, it is a chore that we love to do but for some, it is a daunting task that they don’t mind putting off for another day.
To make this task less intimidating, it is better to find ways that will help you clean your home in just one day. If it takes more than that, people tend not to start cleaning at all.
If you are looking for an online cleaning superhero, Mrs Hinch is here to save the day. As the ‘cleaning queen’, she has lots of cleaning tips and cleaning products that everyone can follow and use. Her tips are very easy and her product recommendations are very affordable. If that doesn’t inspire you to get up and start cleaning, we don’t know what else will!
If you are ready to bring magic into your home, here are some of the tips and tricks recommended by Mrs Hinch.
Cleaning Hacks from Mrs Hinch
How to clean your bathroom. By using a few products, you can keep your bath and shower looking clean and sparkly. You can start by spraying your shower and shower head with a limescale remover spray to remove unwanted watermarks and limescale. Allow the product to soak for about five minutes before you scrub and rinse it away.
For the surfaces of your bathroom, apply a generous amount of bathroom spray and let it sit for about 5 minutes or more. After that, you can take your scrubbing sponge and wipe all surfaces clean.
After scrubbing all surfaces in the bathroom, you can use the shower to rinse everything clean. If some nasties are still lurking somewhere, feel free to use a mould and mildew cleaner to remove them.
How to clean your radiators. We tend to forget our radiators whenever the hot months arrive. They tend to accumulate grime and dust if left unattended. Aside from regular soapy water, Mrs Hinch suggests using disinfectant liquid and a dust cloth to wipe down your radiators. Use a diluted solution of disinfectant liquid then spray it into your dust cloth. It will make your radiators look clean and smell lovely.
How to clean your stainless steel fixtures. We all want our stainless steel fixtures to sparkle. You can use a stainless steel spray, a cleaning pad and a bit of elbow grease to make them sparkle. You can also use a microfibre cloth to make them shine.
How to keep your kitchen cupboard and bed linen sets in order. Mrs Hinch has a clever trick to save storage space on your kitchen cupboard. When storing pans, place the lids upside down so that you can stack them on top of each other instead of sliding them around. For your bed linen sets, fold and keep the set altogether inside its matching pillowcase so whenever you need to pull a fresh set, all you need to do is look for the pillowcase design and pull the complete set out of it. When it’s time to change them, place some tumble dryer sheets to keep them smelling fresh.
How to clean major home surfaces. To wipe away dust from your home or indoor plants, you can use a tumble dryer sheet to remove all the dust that has accumulated on your plants. For major home surfaces, regular soapy water will work well. Do this as often as possible so that the dirt and dust will not transfer to your furniture or carpet.
How to clean your mattress. Our children often leave stains on the mattress. These can be addressed by removing your beddings first then sprinkling bicarbonate powder over the stained areas of your mattress and rubbing it with your hands (make sure you are wearing gloves).
Leave the solution on the mattress for about an hour and after it has settled there, you can wipe it off and you’ll be left with a stain-free mattress in no time.
How to clean your sink. You should clean the sink every day if you can. If not, dirt, limescale and soap scum will accumulate and you might find it hard to scrub them away. This can be avoided by giving your sink a quick clean daily. Regular soapy water and a scrubbing sponge will do just fine. The drain and plug hole can be cleaned using soda crystals before rinsing it off with a disinfectant solution. As a final rinse, pour hot water over the drain and plug hole.
How to clean your bin. We all hate a smelly bin. You can wash the bin using soapy water or you can use a disinfectant spray and wipe it with a kitchen roll. You can fold the roll and leave it at the bottom of the bin before you insert a garbage bag. The soaked kitchen roll will help counteract any nasty smells that will come out of your bin.
How to clean your doors. Do you hate looking at the marks left on your doors? Mrs Hinch suggests mixing fabric conditioner with water and soak the solution on a dusting cloth to wipe them away. It will remove the stains while keeping the paint safe.
How to clean your carpet. Mrs Hinch prefers to use fabric softener and washing gel to keep carpets smelling fresh and clean. Dab the mixture on the surface of the carpet and let it dry. You can vacuum the surface to remove any remaining dirt or dust. We also have a list of awesome tips when it comes to cleaning your carpets and oven so might as well you check it out.
