We are always looking for ways and hacks to make cleaning more effective, faster and easier. However, taking shortcuts might make things harder for you in the long run. You might already develop some bad habits that are inhibiting your ability to get the job done more efficiently. Thence, it’s important to learn what are the mistakes you’re currently making.
So now, it’s time to get rid of these common bad cleaning habits!
1. Bleach is Not A Cleaning Product
The main purpose of bleach is to whiten your laundry or to disinfect. While disinfecting is considered as cleaning, you can’t remove dirt and soil with bleach. They are unable to get rid of water stains and leave every corner in our home sparkling clean. Instead, use a real cleaning product and save the bleach for your laundry.
2. Leaving Dirty Dishes In The Sink For Hours
How much longer would it take for you to wash up your dishes? Leaving dirty dishes is not just an unsanitary sight, it also becomes a wonderland for hungry insects and breeding ground for bacteria. Don’t be lazy! Wash them as you use them. Put them away as and when you used them and start fresh at every meal, and you’ll be greeted by a clean sink and counter, not a pile of guilt.
3. Using Too Much Cleaning Product
The more the better? That’s not how it works! More product doesn’t make anything cleaner. In fact, if the excess product is not cleaned properly, it makes it dirtier because it leaves behind soap residue, which becomes sticky and attracting more dirt. With more product, you’ll actually have to spend more time and effort to clean them away. That’s why you should always use the recommended amount. Don’t waste your time, money and effort on the extra product used.
4. Leaving All The Household Chores Till End of The Month
“I’ll do the laundry tomorrow, I’ll vacuum the floor on Saturday and I’ll clean up the bathroom next weekend.” This sounds familiar, isn’t it? Putting off all these tasks until the end of the month is one of the hardest bad habits to break. Most of us hate doing household chores and we simply avoid it for as long as possible especially when it becomes overwhelming. Do a bit of cleaning every day so that cleaning the entire house will not be so overwhelming.
