How often do you clean the areas around your kitchen sink, bathroom sinks, toilets and tubs? For most homeowners, a quick wipe-down with surface cleaner and a rag or paper towel keeps your kitchen and bathroom looking presentable. However, grime can still build up over time, and eventually you’ll need to go deeper with some scrubbing. As much as we hate to admit it, chores in these areas often gets pushed aside on weekend mornings. If you’re completing your spring cleaning this month, it’s time to finally tackle your plumbing and fixtures.
It’s time to make a list of the areas you want to tackle, and the tools you’ll need to do so. The options are endless, so take into account your own personal preferences. Some homeowners prefer the heavy-duty chemical cleaners, while others prefer the natural versions. Don’t forget your tools, too – old toothbrushes work well, but you may need some rougher brushes for hard water stains or mildew. To be even more efficient, use “sit and soak” products that allow you to work on other tasks while the cleaner is setting. This will likely make the scrubbing part faster and easier as well.
With a bit of planning, finally tackling the more difficult and time-consuming chores can actually take little time at all. During the week before your cleaning day, be sure you’re stocked up on everything you’ll need from your list. Then, there will be no “I’ll do it next weekend” when you realize you’re out of bleach or sponges. When the day comes, wake up early and get your chores out of the way as soon as possible. Put on your favorite playlist and get to work!
