Work from top to bottom
Gravity still works when it comes to house cleaning! Cleaning from top-to-bottom is working smarter, not harder! Wipe away ceiling cobwebs, wash the walls, window sills and windows before vacuuming the floor. The same goes for window cleaning, of which you can see our guide here.
You can save a lot of time and effort by multitasking during the cleaning process. For example, soaking dirty dishes in hot soapy water while cleaning kitchen counters. Apply product to bathroom tiles so they can do their thing on stubborn grout and move on to do another job. Our enzymatic cleaners work until there is no dirt or grime left so you can apply and they will keep working! Start by doing a load of laundry and then moving to the rest of the house.
Start cleaning by creating a plan, prioritising, and putting all your cleaning equipment together in a single, accessible place. If you have trouble starting because it feels overwhelming, give yourself a deadline.You can make a plan to clean an entire room before moving to the next room. This will give you a clear view of how much cleaning is done and how much is remaining. Or, give yourself a deadline, e.g. clean all the windows and then stop for the day. Little by little, it will get done and you will notice the difference!
