To do a good job, the right equipment is essential
A good workman needs his tools! Whether you are cleaning yourself, or employ a cleaner, a strong vacuum cleaner is the most important tool. Poor suction is a time waste.
Make sure you have sufficient cloths for the full house clean : normally 10 -12 cloths are needed. Sanitize each week.
Removing animal hair
Removing animal hair from sofas, carpets and stairs can be very frustrating; especially when your pet is moulting. The best way to collect and remove the hair from the furniture is to use rubber gloves. Put them on and wipe your hand across the hair. The pet hair will then begin to clump together and form bundles in places. This makes it easier for you to pick the hair up in bunches and put in the bin.
Simple food removal for a clean oven
Scrubbing the oven is such a tough job and can be a serious problem for people who leave food that has splattered the sides of the oven. Acting quickly is the best way to ensure that the spills do not stick to the oven. To avoid having to spend hours scrubbing dirty food, sprinkle salt over the spills as quickly as possible. When the oven cools you will be able to brush away the burnt food with a damp cloth or sponge, leaving you with a clean oven.

Domestic cleaning that makes the sink sparkle
Cleaning the sink is a chore that all parents hate, especially after the children have done their best to ensure it is constantly piled with dirty plates, mugs and dishes. It is also an annoying chore after a long day at work to come home and scrub the sink.
After emptying the sink of the days used crockery, use this simple but effective tip to make you feel like a domestic cleaning god or goddess. To make sure that the sink sparkles, shake baking soda on to a sponge and rub the sink gently all around. Rinse the sink after this has been done and watch your sink sparkle back at you.
When cleaning – organisation is required
Organisation is as important as cleaning the house itself. By ensuring that all equipment is prepared before starting your daily cleaning duties, a large amount of time can be saved so that you can enjoy the rest of your day, without having to move back and forth between your cleaning area and the cupboard where your cleaning products are stored.
Using a bucket to place all of the equipment you feel you may need to use whilst cleaning, it is a massive advantage and can be kept within reach at all times. It may sound like a no brainer, but it comes as no surprise that often you require an extra cloth, bottle of spray or sponge.
