Removing dust from our homes

Nov27

In all our homes, there is always space for an additional family member, who comes in and never leaves. Yes, we’re referring to the dust particles that come in to your home and just refuses to leave. It makes itself feel at home by sitting on table tops, window grills, television stands, on top of the shelfs, cupboard, and the list would just go on and on.

You would have just wiped it a few days ago, but the next time you look at it, it looks like you have not cleaned your home for a really long time. Which is why we have round up a few tips on how you can make sure you have a home that looks and feels dust free all year round. Now of course that would mean having to do some work, but keeping it minimal of course.Dust

Of course the most basic thing to do is to dust your home. However do make sure that you dust all places in your homes, especially the areas that you would usually not dust. By doing so, you can split the areas into two. One part to be the area that is more prone to collect dust and you dust this area twice a week, and the other part; the areas that are not always exposed, twice a month. It is always good practice to come up with a system such as the example given when it comes keeping your home clean and dust free.

You can also use cloths to wipe down your furniture probably once a month, instead of doing it only when it is a festive occasion or when you are having visitors to your house. When you wash the cloth you use to wipe down your furniture, try to avoid using fabric softener, for it reduces the ability of the fabric to trap dust and to absorb liquid. You may also want to remove carpeting around our house, or keep it to the minimal. For example by only having the doormat. Having carpets around your house, you will have a lot of dust particles collected. It would also be a good habit to have door mats especially door mats made of heavy duty material because they are very efficient in absorbing dust particles.

Also if you realise that you are always waking up having a stuffy nose, it could be because of the presence of dust in your room and in your mattress and pillows. To deal with this you can purchase covers that are allergent reducing, and place your mattresses and pillows in them. However do remember to give the covers a good wash perhaps twice a year or more if you feel that there is a need to.

You may also want to avoid placing several items around the places you spend the most amount time, for example in your living rooms and your bedrooms, for dust particles tend to collect among these things, and they can make cleaning really hard. Therefore try to minimise the amount of things you place around your house. Having decoration items always enhances the beauty of your home, but do make sure that you do not overdo it, because it is sure to make cleaning be very hard.

Also, try to open as little windows as possible around your home. Though fresh air enters your house through your open windows, try not to open several windows for dust particles and pollutants come in through your home through your windows and open doors. Also while you are at it, place your Windoro and let it clean your windows. Also if you have air conditioners fixed around your house, remember to change the air filters around your house. In this way you can prevent dust particles from gathering in your air filters which would keep your home feeling fresh and dust free.

You may want to try placing air purifiers around your house. Air purifiers are a great help when it comes to dealing with dust particles. They help to suck up the dust and prevent them form being collected in your home. It also keeps your house smelling fresh and this would be very refreshing.

These are some of things that you can do to prevent or at least minimalise the  presence of dust particles in your homes and we hope you found this article useful.

 

How to maintain a clean kitchen?

Nov26

Most of us will have the conception that the bathroom is the only dirtiest place in our homes. Well, surprise surprise, it is not the only place. In fact the most dirtiest places in our home include places such as your kitchen sinks, kitchen counter, kitchen sponges and so on, as according to Huffingtonpost.com. So it is pretty obvious where we are heading towards in this post. That’s right, how to maintain a clean kitchen in our homes.

It really is not that hard, and it is no magic, all it takes is a few steps and you can have a clean looking kitchen in a jiffy. So lets begin. First off, clearing the sink. This is very important; you do not want to leave your dishes lying around in the sink for too long, it just makes the place look very messy and untidy. If you don’t have a dishwasher, just try to clear the sink as and when you leave dishes in them. Also keep it a habit to wash your sink once in the morning before you start your work in the kitchen and once before you head to bed at night. This way you can ensure that you are wiping down any bacteria that could be present in your sink, and that you are woking in a clean environment.1Clean-Kitchen-5_1.29780229_std

You may also want to constantly clean your kitchen counter tops and stove with a kitchen cleaner. Sometimes you may also want to use your dishwasher to do this, but do check if your dishwasher is suitable for use. Do this once before you start your work and again at night so that you can ensure that you are working in a clean environment and that you are reducing the chances of any bacteria being present. 

Most of the times when cooking, there is the possibility that something might spill, or sometimes the oil splatter will make the kitchen feel very dirty and messy. Therfore it is always good to make sure you wipe them off immediately after cooking. This is because if you leave it there for a long time, there is the possibility that they might go on to become tough stains that would be harder to remove. Try not to use the same cloth you used for the counter tops for the floors. Do make it a practice to make sure you have separate cloths for the floors and counter tops, because that way it is hygienic.

Another important thing to remember is to always remove the trash from your kitchen. Many of us do this, however some if us may be guilty of foregoing this. Make sure you remind yourself to always take out the trash every night. It would also help if you could come up with a system in your home wherby family members take turns to remove the trash every night.

You can also use the MyGenie to do a quick sweep of your kitchen. You can do this probably before you head to bed, while you are cleaning your sink. This way you can ensure that any dirt that remains is wiped off completely clean with the Genie.

It is also the kitchen windows that usually have the tough stains that are very difficult to remove. They will usually be very sticky and stained with oil and grease. Reason being that when you cook, the air that leaves through your kitchen window is usually contaminated, and therefore the windows will be left to be very sticky. Most of us will have a really tough time cleaning it up, and if you are a victim of it as well, you should get yourself a Windoro. The Windoro will do an excellent job in removing these tough stains without you having to lift a finger. It is easy to use and it will remove all types of stain and it will have your window looking clean and fresh at the end of its cleaning job.

So at the end of the day the takeaway is to remember is don’t ever go to bed without cleaning up our kitchen. Can you imagine, after all that cooking and eating if you decide to leave your dishes in the sink and leave your counter tops with the stains of food? It is going to be a mess by the time it is morning, and you are going to find it hard to clean up then. Flies might be around your dishes, and it is simply not hygienic to leave the kitchen in a messy state overnight. Therefore make it a habit to clean up the kitchen before heading to bed.

By doing this, you can ensure that you have a clean looking kitchen and a hygienic one as well! Do also remember to get your a Windoro to get rid of that tough stain in your windows!
