As working mothers, we don't have time to clean the house. Let me restate. With the free time that we do have, we don't want to spend it cleaning the house! Here are a few spring cleaning tips that will have you spending less time cleaning and more time with your family. Get started. Decide how clean you want your house to be and how much time you have. This will help you decide how to set up your cleaning schedule. Be honest with yourself about what you can do. Attempt to delegate tasks. If you live with other people, cleaning the house should not be exclusively your responsibility! You may have to take on leadership by setting up a rotational cleaning schedule, but it's better than having to do this backbreaking work alone. Make sure the tasks assigned are age appropriate (i.e. grade school children can pick up their bedroom floors, teenagers can clean the garage or bathroom). For the "average" busy person it works better to do a little bit of cleaning per day so that the work doesn't pile up, and also have major-cleaning day a few times a month. Cleaning glass/mirrors. It is commonly thought that glass cleaner does the cleaning. It's no substitute for soapy water! First, wash your glass (including windows and mirrors) with a solution of warm or hot water, dish soap and a rag, sponge, or squeegee. Powdered no-scratch cleaner works fantastic for cleaning mirrors, glass, ceramics, and metals because it scrubs off hard water residue without scratching the surface. Wipe down surface with a dry lint-free cloth or lint-free paper towels. If you want to clean glass and be environmentally friendly, clean the glass with vinegar and water, dry with a lint-free cloth, and rub the glass with newspaper. No streaks! Make sure you use some elbow grease -- it requires pressure to properly clean glass. Polish furniture. Like glass cleaner, furniture polish isn't meant to be a cleaner. However, it can be used for cleaning. If you'd like to use furniture polish, make sure to carefully read the labels and find one made specifically for what you need. Some furniture can handle water, and those that can should be used with the soapy solution from step two. Be sure to quickly dry off these surfaces. Next, apply the suggested amount of furniture polish and wipe away according to directions. This will keep dust from magnetizing to your furniture. If you follow these simple tips, your house will be clean (at least no one will call the health department) and you can spend more of your valuable time with your family. ---------------------------------------------------- To see a great cleaning tool, check out the Bissell Proheat Review: http://workingmomreviews.com/bissell-proheat-review-need-know/ or the Mint Floor Cleaner Review: http://workingmomreviews.com/mint-floor-cleaner-review-right/
