6 Simple tips to make winter cleaning easier
Keeping the house clean and in order is not the simplest thing in the world. Whoever takes care of the house knows: it is a task that never ends; there is always something that can be done. Not to mention the fact that, overnight, much of what has been tidied up is gone.
In winter, then, this routine becomes a difficult dilemma to deal with. With the low temperatures and the difficulty to reconcile the domestic chores with the cold of the season, it is difficult to decide how to organize the cleaning of the house. What is worth being organized? What is the best way to do the cleaning? In today's post, we've separated some tips for you to suffer less from the cold when cleaning the house!
1 - Before and after winter
Before the season starts, have a good and complete cleaning in your home. Arrange the wardrobes, put the stored pieces to take a sun, clean the cabinets, carpets, furniture, shelves, etc. This must be one of those famous heavy cleaners! This will make your environment more organized and clean during the season, eliminating the need for rigorous cleanings in the midst of low temperatures.
The same should be done as winter is over!
2 - Enjoy the times of the day
Dealing with water in winter is extremely uncomfortable. So, on a daily basis give preference to perform these tasks in times of more heat. Shortly after lunch, when the sun is usually warmer and the temperatures are milder, I leave it to wash clothes and dishes. Regarding the clothes, it will be easier for you, which will feel less cold, and for the parts, which may dry faster.
3 - Plan the cleanings
Some household chores do not need to be done daily. Washing the bathrooms, for example, is a job that can be done once a week as long as you keep up with the organization and the most superficial cleaning.
Washing sidewalks and backyards, for example, is not recommended even in the summer. Avoiding wasted water, you also avoid the wear and tear that is to accomplish this type of task.
4 - Keep things in order
Keeping the house relatively organized helps (and a lot) to avoid heavy work at the time of cleaning. If you try to keep the rooms organized and cleaned on a daily basis, cleaning will be simpler.
As soon as you stain the stove, for example, take a cloth and perform a quick cleaning, instead of letting other stains accumulate and having double work when cleaning everything.
5 - Plan the washing of clothes
Just as it makes it easy to plan the cleaning of the rooms, organizing the washing of clothes can also help a lot in the day to day during the winter. Have specific days in the week to do the laundry, but be careful not to accumulate too many pieces. If this happens, you will have 2 major problems: you will spend more time washing everything, and you run the risk of having an amount of clothes to dry, which can be very time consuming at low temperatures.
This does not mean that you should wash clothes every day, but rather organize the volume of the pieces. At that time, it is also worth consulting the weather forecast and leaving the larger mounds or heavier parts for the days of higher temperatures.
6 - Abuse of damp cloth
Instead of using a duster to remove dust, for example, use a damp cloth instead. This is because, in this way, you remove the dust instead of spreading it, ensuring not only complete cleaning but also the prevention of allergies and reactions, which are very common at this time of year. The same goes for the floor: a simple damp cloth makes all the difference, dispensing with the use of water, soap and mop day by day.
Now that you already know how to prepare your home for winter, it's time to put the tips into practice and ensure a more comfortable season! If you want we can take care of this task for you.
