But where do you begin cleaning? You don’t have to clean every inch of the house to make this change, that’s why we made you a new year house cleaning checklist. Keep reading!
Wipe the fridge
After the holidays, the first place you need to clean is the fridge. Correctly store or throw away the leftover; you don’t need spilled food messing out your kitchen. Then, pick up a microfiber and wipe the door and shelves. It’s reccomended you use plant-based cleaners to clean the interiors of the fridge. You can also gently vacuum the coils to remove any crumbs.
Vacuum your mattress and carpet
There are few spots more important to clean than your bed. You spend nearly 8 hours in your bed every day, and it’s a place that can easily nest some nasty dust mites. Save a little time of your day to strip your mattress and vacuum it. Also use your complete vacuum cleaner to give a deep clean to your carpet, especially if you have in your room also.
Degrease the kitchen
The kitchen’s surfaces like cabinets accumulate a thin layer of grease every year. Dish soap is great to do this job because it’s efficient, cheap, and you already have it in your home. Use microfiber to clean the stove, oven, and cabinets. All the spattered oil and gummy fingertips will be wiped out.
Declutter your closet
Closets are always storing things that you don’t need. Take a look inside, unhang your clothes, and separate the ones that you don’t need. Every piece that you won’t use again; it’s only accumulating dust. Sell or donate your old clothes and make free space in your closet; that way, you can clean it quickly, and feel your room more light and tidy.
Put rules in your room
After a whole year has passed, you may have the experience to decide what changes apply in your room to keep it more tidy and clean throughout the year. First, you have to clean and declutter your room, then reorganize your furniture to create a more comfortable and accessible space for you. The put the rules: you can determinate a five/minute clean every day, or a no accumulating rule for more than five new objects.
Disinfect the bathroom
Of course, your bathroom is begging for a cleaning and disinfecting session, especially the tub and shower. Use your favorite plant-based cleaning supplies and pour it in your tile and grout. Let the liquid do its effect then start to scrub. It’s hard work, we know, but after you’ve done your bathroom will be shining and germ-free, ready for a whole new year.
After you clean all these places, you’ll be ready to face the new year. Remember that if you need help with a deep cleaning, you can contact us on our website.
