Another year means a new start in life. We may have lots of discrepancies on the past year but I’m sure we can still make up to it. However, this is only possible if we willingly drop all the bad cleaning habits that we had this year and start next year with better ones.
To help you with this, here we’ll discuss the cleaning habits that you must retain or start doing and those that you must learn to avoid doing for a better and cleaner 2020.
Utilization of spaces
Having a crowded home is not only because of too many furniture or too many people living in the household. Sometimes, it is also because space was not properly used and maximized. So, this upcoming new year, we should all learn an important lesson; that our homes could be brighter and better if we properly design it with wise allocation of space. Put out organizers and maximize the use of cabinets, drywall anchors and screws.
We may be busy with our daily lives doing our work, studies or caring for our families but we should not neglect our home. Doing a general cleaning once or twice a week or a month is enough to maintain the cleanliness of your home and prevent the build-up of dirt and dust. You may find Lola Whisk broom or Angle Broom useful in these kinds of tasks as they are not only affordable but also effective when it comes to intense cleaning.
Keeping unnecessary things at your home is like literally storing trash. Why keep it if there’s no use of it anymore? It is now time to throw away or better yet make something out of the things that you have kept for years. Dig up on the piles of your belongings and see if there’s something you can dispose and then organize those that remains useful.
Using the wrong cleaning tools and products
Your home’s protective finishes can easily be damaged by harsh chemicals while some cleaning products build-up and ruin what you're trying to keep clean. Products such as an acid-based cleaner can etch stone on marble countertops while using liquid or paste floor wax on laminate or wooden floors sealed with polyurethane will leave the finish looking dull and dirty. Without this wax, the factory-applied sealant can eventually be damaged. This goes similarly with cleaning tools which are not appropriate in your home. So, use only the best and effective.
Don’t be fooled by cheap prices or false promises. Instead, trust the proven and tested when it comes to intense cleaning. For example, instead of using the usual plastic brush with polyester bristles, you can use Lola Eco Clean™ Tampico Brush which are made out of high quality Eco-Friendly Renewable Birch Hardwood and Natural Tampico Fiber.
Forgetting the hidden spots
Many people do clean their home but fail to include the hidden areas where most dirt and dust are building up. These undiscovered areas will then be the source of other dirt and even bacteria or sickness. This is why you wonder why no matter how hard you clean your home; there’s still no change.
We can only welcome this new year with full positivity if we aim to deliver a positive change in our lives. One of the ways we can do this is to carry only the habits that will benefit us and leave those that will not. You can use products such as Lola Rola Sticky Mop or the Swiffer 360° Duster Comparable which both have long handles to reach dirt on high places or narrow gaps and corners.
