General cleaning: where to start

Generally, to save time some wise elder hostess advised to share an apartment on the zone (separate rooms), and at regular intervals to devote their time cleaning on any one area. For general cleaning, this concept is unlikely to be suitable.

First, cleaning is no longer a general, therefore, after its completion does not get enough of aesthetic pleasure.

Second, all efforts will come to naught when the cleanroom dirt (pet dander, dust, unnecessary things) will be moved from the premises which have not yet touched by a broom and mop.

And to start spring cleaning with better rooms, gradually moving into the kitchen, then the bathroom and toilet. Thus it is necessary to clean and shine to all, and at the same time filter out unnecessary things, immediately throwing them. Not only because it is necessary to Feng Shui. Firstly, in the house where there is no unnecessary things, really breathe easier. Secondly, an empty box that you keep just in case that’s already five years – is also a dust collector to clean up that you need to spend time.

Throw must not only bulky items that you do not need, but every little thing like the late cosmetics and medicines.

General cleaning: be clear

In fact, indulging in pleasurable activities such as general cleaning, we pursue two objectives: to bring to the ideal that has not been brought before him earlier, and get to the corners of the apartment or house, the presence of which may suspect only small pets.

Regarding the first objective of dishes, which was once washed, carelessly, or, for example, things that magically created havoc in the space of the cabinet. Well, with an understanding of the second objective can easily do that, they appear later, when you have to figure out how to clean the floor under the double bed or remove dirt between the stove and kitchen cabinets.

In addition to defining the objectives should also define the scope. Many believe that the general cleaning – this floor, washed not once, but twice, or mirror, wipe more than one minute, and two. In fact, general cleaning and captures more time and more space. Typically, the field of activity does not end with the floor and shelves. Have to remember that in the house also has windows, furniture and ceiling.

But things did not lie in their places – this is not the object that should be eliminated during the general cleaning. There really is a rule that is not purely where sweeping, but where do not litter. Immediately spoon the things in its place. The rest of the general cleaning will not replace even daily surface cleaning.
