Let's face it, as working mothers, we don't like to clean. Heck, I'll be lucky if I can get all the cleaning done. It is the dusting that I really hate. However, did you know if you dust just once a month, it's one of the easiest ways to get your place looking better than the average home? Dusting is a good place to start when cleaning your house because it gives you the opportunity to pick things up off the floor, fluff pillows and cushions, fold throw blankets, and perform basic tidying. When dusting your place, if you miss an area, it'll be quite visible within a couple of days as compared to everywhere else, so be thorough. Make sure you take the time to move items prior to dusting. This is actually more efficient than picking up each item and dusting under it. If you're worried about how things looked before you moved them and want to make sure everything goes back exactly the same, you can always take a picture on your cell phone or camera before you start. Once you get your ceiling fan clean, it's a cinch to do it every time. I've seen many ceiling fans that can be easily reached by a footstool or chair that are literally dripping with dust. Don't forget to do your baseboards. They are one of the key elements to making your house look clean. Even if you clean everything else, dirty baseboards will stick out. If you haven't got to your baseboards in a while and they are really dirty, then clean them with a damp mop and/or vacuum them. Door Jams & Light Switch Plates. Don't forget them. If you use a damp cloth with a little cleaning product on it, it will look after these easy to miss areas. Lets move to what I consider to be the basics. If your time is limited and you're just trying to tidy up a bit and get your place looking fresh quickly. Basics that should not be missed include: bed frames including the side rail, the side of cabinets and armoires, door panels, banisters and spindles, chair legs and bases, curtain rods, pictures and their frames, stairwell ledges, dining room table legs and bases. If your house has a lot of vacuuming, you should lift the cushions on your couches and dust crumbs and debris onto the rug or floor. This saves time when vacuuming and avoids having to pull out the vacuum again later when you notice this. ---------------------------------------------------- To check out a great tool to help clean your house, see the Bissell Powersteamer: check out the Bissell Powersteamer Review at:
