Having the right cleaning products at home during the cold months means cleaning is made much easier. In addition to cleaning products, there are things you can do when the cold winds begin to blow to keep your home warm, with clean air circulating properly. Here are some tips on products to have, and what to do with them, as winter weather approaches.
- Lint-Free Cloths
With everything so full of static in the cold months, the last thing you want is to be using a lint-ridden cloth to clean or dust. Have a multi-purpose cleaning cloth handy for every room. Cleaning is a cinch if you have the right supplies nearby.
- Do Things Daily
Daily habits are a good thing. For instance, putting away the dishes after they’re dry and making your bed every morning are good habits. You’ll save yourself from having a lot of work all lumped together at the end of the week. It’s also a good habit to have things like paper towels at hand in case of spills. If cleaning isn’t your forte or you’re pressed for time, finding a company that offers home cleaning packages might be a good option for you.
- Spray Bottles Filled with Essential Oil Water
Nothing lifts the mood of a dark, stale room in the winter better than a spritz of essential oil infused water. You can use a few drops of any essential oil you love the smell of. Lavender is particularly soothing, while eucalyptus is fresh smelling and deodorizing. Citrus scents like lemon or orange also perk up a space.
- One Deep Cleaning Every Month
No one likes to pull out furniture and appliances to clean underneath and behind them, but doing so about once a month in the cold months will have you breathing easier, and your home smelling much more pleasant. If you want to be environmentally friendly, there are loads of products on the market today that aren’t harmful to you or your pets. You can even make your own. Water and vinegar is a great cleaner. Many people take advantage of professional cleaning services for a regular deep cleaning.
- Get Ready for Spring
Winter doesn’t last forever. Keeping your home spic and span will make the time seem like it’s flying. Round about the end of February turn your thoughts to spring. If you get a few sunny days, open a window or two for a while to get some fresh air in. Get rid of some winter items, including old products that have been hibernating in your cupboards.
