If you’re like most people, then you probably feel like you never have enough time to get everything done. And if cleaning is one of those things on your to-do list that never seems to get done, then you’re not alone. But spring is here, which means it’s time to start getting your home ready for the warmer weather. Did you know that some things should be cleaned every week? So what are these magical things that need to be cleaned every week? Read on to find out! By taking a little bit of time each week to clean these items, you’ll help keep your home looking and smelling fresh – and you’ll save yourself a lot of headaches down the road.
Dust bunnies tend to accumulate under furniture and in other hard-to-reach places. So it’s important to dust your furniture regularly. Start by vacuuming the entire area – this will help remove any dirt, dust, and pet hair that may be lurking. Be sure to pay special attention to areas that tend to get dirty quickly, like under the furniture. If you have a pet that sheds a lot, you may also want to consider using a carpet rake or vacuum attachment to remove all excess hair. Doing this regularly will help keep your furniture looking new for longer!
The toilet is arguably the essential fixture in your home. But don’t just give it a quick scrub with soap and water- use bleach or another cleaning agent designed for toilets to make sure that germs are killed off and obliterated. You should also change the toilet brush when you clean because they can build up bacteria over time. If you have hard water at home, then using vinegar instead of bleach will help keep things fresh without adding extra chemicals into the air! And once you’re finished, don’t forget to flush!
The refrigerator is often one of the last places people think to clean – but it’s one of the most important. Start by taking everything out of the fridge and wiping down all the shelves and compartments with a mild detergent. Be sure to get into all of the nooks and crannies! If you have any spills or sticky spots, use a degreaser or Goo Gone to help remove them. This will help remove any dust or dirt accumulated over time. Once everything is clean, put everything back in its place and give the fridge a good old-fashioned blast with the vacuum cleaner.
Vacuum Your Rugs And Carpets
It’s essential to regularly vacuum your rugs and carpets, especially if you have kids or pets. Start by cleaning the entire area – this will help remove any dirt, dust, and pet hair that may be lurking. Be sure to pay special attention to areas that tend to get dirty quickly, like under the furniture. If you have a pet that sheds a lot, you may also want to consider using a carpet rake or vacuum attachment to remove all excess hair. Doing this regularly will help keep your carpets looking new for longer!
The microwave is another commonly overlooked item when it comes to weekly cleaning. But it’s essential to clean it regularly, especially if you have kids or pets. Start by taking everything out and wiping down the shelves and interior with a damp cloth. You can also use a little bit of bleach or vinegar if you need extra help removing stains and smells. Be sure to clean the coils at the back of the fridge at least once a year – you can either do this yourself or have a professional do it for you. And finally, don’t forget to wipe down the exterior of the fridge every week – this will help keep it looking new for longer!
Yes, even your sheets need to be cleaned regularly! Start by stripping them off the bed and putting them in the washing machine. Be sure to use hot water and bleach (or another disinfectant) to kill any germs or bacteria that may be lurking. You may also want to consider using a fabric softener – this will help keep them smelling fresh and looking new for longer. Once they’re washed and dried, put them back on the bed and enjoy a good night’s sleep!
The dishwasher is one of those appliances we all take for granted – but it needs to be cleaned regularly! Start by removing the filter and giving it a good scrub with soap and water. You may also want to consider using a vinegar or baking soda scrub if there are any tough stains. Next, clean the dishwasher’s interior with a damp cloth – be sure to get in all of the nooks and crannies. Finally, run a cycle with hot water and bleach (or another disinfectant) to kill any remaining bacteria. This will help keep your dishes looking and smelling fresh!
