TIPS AND TRICKS TO KEEP YOU HOUSE CLEAN
These are the tips and tricks that we use to keep the house clean for one week.
- Use coasters for your glasses in glass and wood surface.
In the summer, it’s always a pain for me to clean the table. Why? We usually love to drink cold water. And usually there is so much condensation water dripping from the glass, that if we don’t use coasters, the water will be dripping on the table and leave marks. So, better use a coaster for your glass. What kind of coaster, will you ask? I personally use something like this. If you have a glass one, you can put your jug also on it.
3. Cover your table with tablemats made preferably from plastic materials.
This one also can be a good choice to keep your house clean, any spilled leftovers from eating will be easily cleaned but we personally do not prefer this because we like simple designs. But, if you want to change the design of your table, this will be a good option and there is a lot of designs also!
Note : Look around Port Louis and Rose Hill if you want to buy one.
4. Keep your kitchen granite table from stain with anti slip mats.
This one is new for me. I remembered a friend using these anti slip mats almost everywhere in her house: On top of the table, on top of the drawer, near the television, etc. One day, I asked her why and she said this helps her to prevent stains on every surface that she applies it. I tried that and guess what? Best decision ever, girl! I put this on the granite table in my kitchen and it has a double function also. The table is slippery so it keeps the basket and kitchen towel’s holder from sliding away. I use this also to keep my chopping board and pan.
- Never clean the house before weekend especially on Fridays.
This is a huge lesson that we learned. On weekend, there will be more activities inside the house and the floor will be easily dirty. IMHO, it’s better to clean the house on Mondays. During the week, the house is clean because only Mon that stays in the house during the day (and hubby in the evening. LOL).
2. Separate house slippers with slippers to go out.
This one I learn from my hubby. Back in Jakarta, we don’t have to use slippers inside the house, we just walk barefoot. But then I realized something. When you walk barefoot, there will be foot stamps on the floor and it will become oily everywhere. So I decided to wear house slippers, it’s different from slippers you wear to go out. This can help your house clean from outside’s dust.
3. When there’s a lot of hair falling everywhere, we use a small hand vacuum cleaner to clean it. For little dirt like this, a small hand vacuum is always handy.
4. Put a welcome mat outside the house to clean the shoes’ dirt and put a mat inside the house to clean your feet.
