If you are going to tackle your big spring clean yourself, these expert tips from MCS will ensure your home is sparkling for the warmer months ahead:
- Limit spring cleaning products to a quality window/glass cleaner, all-purpose cleaner, tile/grout cleaner and toilet cleaner
- Always use the MCS system of spring-cleaning for the quickest, most efficient way to clean your home. Clean from the top level of your home to the bottom; in each room, clean from top to bottom, starting on the left and moving right.
- Always dust the room first and then vacuum, to ensure any dust or dirt that falls onto the floor will be picked up by the vacuum.
- The best dust cloth to use is a damp, clean, microfibre cloth. To dampen, hold the cloth by the corner and spray with clean water from a bottle. The cloth should be damp enough to pick up dust without leaving moisture streaks on the furniture surface.
- If there’s pet hair on upholstery, a damp microfibre cloth or rubber glove will remove it easily.
- Before mopping, sweep or vacuum floors first to collect crumbs and dirt. Then, start washing the floor from the farthest corner and work your way towards the door. Use a damp cloth on the end of the mop handle to reach the narrow space between appliances.
- To remove baked-on food from inside the microwave, fill a cup with water and microwave it on full power for a few minutes. The steam will help soften the splatters, so you can wipe it clean more easily.
- Dishcloths and sponges can be incubators for germs. Wash cloths regularly and microwave damp sponges on high for several minutes to kill bacteria. Even better, use microfibre cloths only as they dry quickly and help prevent the spread of germs.
- Use a toothbrush to clean hard-to-reach areas in the bathroom and kitchen e.g. around the soap dish, taps and drain.
- When cleaning windows wipe the interior side of the glass horizontally and the exterior side vertically. This way it will be easy to determine if the streaks are inside or out.
- Get rid of cobwebs in hard-to-reach corners and crevices with a feather duster. This is also good to use on lampshades which can look grey and dusty in a brighter spring light.
- To de-scale a kettle; fill it half-and-half with white vinegar or denture cleaning tablet water and leave it to soak overnight. Use an old toothbrush to dislodge any stubborn bits of lime scale. Rinse out thoroughly a couple of times and then boil some water to eliminate any vinegary odours.
