Simple House Cleaning Tips for Busy People

By Guest Author On April 5, 2011 Under Personal Development, Success Secrets

If you are anything like me , you might check around your house at the end of your long day chasing kids around and wonder when you will ever find the time to clean, I mean really clean your house .  With such a busy schedule, I rarely have time to really get any worth-while home cleaning finished during the day.  However , I’ve come across several tricks along the way to keep me in control of my cleaning efforts, even in between shuffling my kids to their various events .

Below are some good cleaning tricks for Moms on the go :

  1. If you have a dark sofa and a dog or cat with light colored hair and need to get the hair off fast , just take a roll of packing tape and wrap it around your hand and rub until the hair is gone .  This also is useful  for a dark area rug.
  2. If you have company coming to see you and need to quickly clean your toilet, drop two Alka Seltzer tablets in the toilet .  Give it a few minutes until they dissolve , give it a fast swish with the toilet brush and you are done!
  3. Keep some denture tablets in your home and when it’s starting to look scummy from soap and use, fill the sink with some warm water and drop 7-10 tablets in the water.  Let the tablets dissolve and sit for 30 minutes .  Then rinse the sink with water , and you should have a sparkling clean sink .
  4. Make your bed right when you get out of it in the morning. Don’t wait until after your shower or after breakfast – just quickly make the bed.  This is a simple way to improve the look of your bedroom instantly .
  5. Baby wipes are nice to use as cleaning rags .  Use them to clean spots off your counter or a spot of baby food off the floor.
  6. To remove crayon from your walls rub a little bit of Colgate toothpaste on the wall with a damp sponge.  Make sure to rub cautiously so the paint does not come off the wall.
  7. If you ran out of paper towels and have guests coming over and need to remove some fingerprints off the glass sliding door , grab the newspaper and dip in vinegar.  Wipe the vinegar on the glass and rub until close to dry.  Then make the glass shine with a dry newspaper or cloth.
  8. To really make your carpeting clean, sweep your carpet with a broom first.  This will help loosen all the ground in dirt .  Then vacuum .  You will be pleased by the difference!
  9. Freshen your garbage disposal quickly by cutting up a ripe lemon and putting it down the drain.  Now, turn on the garbage disposal and let it run .  Your disposal will now smell like lemons .
