Are you getting a little restless during quarantine? I can completely relate! We haven’t been outside of the house in weeks and we are all getting a little restless. If you’re getting bored of the usual (like me) why not deep clean the nooks and crannies of your house? After all, cleaning IS the best way to get rid of the virus. Check out these cleaning tips for the home and car…you’ll have a clean home and car in no time at all.
Cleaning Tips: Kitchen
Glean Greasy Cabinets
I’ll admit it, the cabinets were once the most looked-over part of my kitchen. I’d wipe them down every so often, but not often enough! If you have greasy cabinets from cooking, eating, or whatever you can easily clean them with baking soda paste. Check out the full tutorial here.
Weekly Wipe Downs
Weekly wipe downs save my life when it comes to keeping my kitchen as clean as possible. Remove everything from your kitchen countertops and scrub it well. Additionally, clean out the garbage disposal, wipe down the shelves of your fridge, and scrub out any baked-on cheese from the inside of the microwave.
Cleaning Tips: Habits
Develop A Schedule
First thing is first when it comes to keeping your home clean: you need to develop a schedule! Tackle laundry on Mondays, the kitchen on Tuesdays, and so forth. Write it down on paper so you don’t forget. Find more tips on developing your own cleaning habits here.
Once a month, set aside some time to deep clean your most used items. This could include things like running a cup of vinegar through your dishwasher to clean it, cleaning out your dryer vent, and even scrubbing your bathroom tile grout. These projects aren’t fun, but they will make your house look so much better.
Cleaning Tips: Car
Magic Erasers Clean Everything
Tear off a bit of a magic eraser and use it to scrub the doors, steering wheel, and dashboard of your car. Magic erasers remove ALL kinds of dirt and gunk and you won’t have to put forth much effort at all. Perfect, huh?
Clean Your Cup Holders
If you have grimy cup holders (and who doesn’t?) wrap an old sock around the bottom of a plastic cup. Spray some cleaner on the bottom of the sock and rub it into the cup holders to remove the grime. Pretty easy, right?
