So, I like to clean. Well, that's not exactly the truth. What I like are the RESULTS of my cleaning efforts. Quite often after I've cleaned the house I just walk around and look at how pretty it is for a while! But sometimes the mess can be a bit overwhelming that I don't even know where to begin, ya know? If this is you too, let us help you get off that starting line with these tips:
1. HAVE A SYSTEM
Whether you're a whole-house or a room-by-room kind of cleaner, a method to your madness needs to be in place before beginning. Did you know you can cut your cleaning time in HALF by utilizing a system?🤯 Now that you have a strong system in place, you can clean the house (or room) quicker with each go!
2. CLEAN TOP TO BOTTOM, LEFT TO RIGHT
Don't start your room by wiping off the coffee table or clearing the nightstand. Get up and get those ceiling blades dusted! (Damn...those blades really just called us out!) Cleaning top to bottom and left to right ensures that you cover the entire room instead of getting sidetracked as you dart around to this then that.
3. KEEP YOUR FAV TOOLS HANDY
Having all the tools and cleaning products you need you need within reach means you won't waste any time walking back and forth to the cabinet under the sink (or wherever your preferred storage place is). A cute carrying tote can make a world of difference, and you'll look so professional! We suggest a nice pair of gloves, too, so you don't get any ick on ya!
4. LEMON AS A CLEANER
Say whaaat?! Rust stains on patio and porch furniture, garage floors, kitchen appliances, or the grill are be eyesores, but you don't need caustic and potentially harmful acid cleaners to remove them. Instead, simply use a lemon! The natural acid from the juice will dissolve that pesky rust. Simply cut the lemon in half, squeeze the juice onto the rust stain, and let it sit for about 10 minutes. For tough-ass stains that have been there for weeks, months, or longer, scrub with a hard bristle brush. Rinse off the lemon juice and gunk with clean water.
5. MAKE CLEANING FUN WITH FUN PRODUCTS
For example, why use a spray bottle that doesn't say 'Bitch Be Gone' when you can use one that does? 🧐 Try some of these snarky items from the shop to help put you in the right vibe!
You got this, sassy friend!
