Good Cleaning Habits for Fall

Good Cleaning Habits for Fall

Because of our busy schedules, it’s easy to fall behind on cleaning.

Because of our busy schedules, it’s easy to fall behind on cleaning. When our houses get too untidy, it can cause a huge amount of undue stress. Don’t feel bad, just follow these good cleaning habits from now until December and every day after!


What’s Hiding in Your Home?

There could be mold inside your refrigerator that you won’t see right away. Mold can also lurk in the basement, in the bathroom, and in closets and crawl spaces. Bedding such as blankets, sheets, and pillowcases are covered in dust mites and dead skin cells, especially if you don’t wash them often enough. Look out for germs in the filter of your vacuum cleaner. If you haven’t emptied out the trap and cleaned it, now is the time to do so. Lastly, get rid of your chemical cleaning solutions and replace them with all natural ones that smell better and won’t damage your fixtures, floors, or walls.  

What to Do

Make it a habit to wash everything associated with your bed. Do this every week, or if you can’t, every two weeks. Use the hottest possible water setting to make sure it gets as clean as possible. For anything white, use a little bit of bleach and for colors, use vinegar.

Vacuum the floors, carpets, and furniture all over your home. This is another habit you can repeat every week.  If your carpet is too far gone you might need to get rid of it.

The kitchen is bound to be one of the messiest, dirtiest places in your entire home. Clean out the inside of the refrigerator, as we noted before. Bleach and vinegar will help. Before you leave the kitchen, take some time to wipe down all the surfaces so that they aren’t crusty and contaminated by raw ingredients that you used. Don’t forget to clean all the lights, both in the kitchen and throughout your entire home. After that, go through your home and wipe down the walls to get rid of dust.
