We’ve teamed up with cleaning superstar and Instagram sensation, Lynsey Queen of Clean to give the Vileda community an exclusive taster of her easy-to-follow cleaning tips and tricks. Lynsey has gone from sharing her motivational, cleaning know-how on her Instagram account to launching her very own book and we’re delighted to have her as our Vileda guest blogger this month.
How to Clean Your House and Tidy up Your Life
Cleaning has always been in the blood, when I was young I was always helping my mum around the house and my memories of visiting my Grandparents are of my Nans always having a cleaning cloth or a mop in their hands.
After a personal trauma, I turned to cleaning. Cleaning is what I used to scrub away the pain and it worked better than any therapy.
A few years on |I learned to deal with my obsessive cleaning and turned my passion for cleaning into a TV career and social media journey. My first social media post of a bottle of cleaning product placed on my hallway floor got quite a few likes and I was quite shocked as it didn’t match with my very small following but from this, I carried on posting daily tips, product choices and home hacks.
Realising I could help people through cleaning inspired me to carry on posting and eventually talk about my journey. As well as daily cleaning advice across my platforms and blog I offer advice to my followers in regards to motherhood as well as suffering from anxiety and depression. Knowing that I am supporting other people is amazing with something as so simple as housework and cleaning.
I was honoured to be given the chance to write a book last year and I wanted to create a cleaning Bible. I am so incredibly proud of my book which is titled, ‘How to Clean Your House and Tidy up Your Life’ and it’s something I’ve wanted to do for a while. I have kept it light-hearted, bright with simple, easy-to-follow cleaning tips along with a few organisation planners to make housework easily fit into your life.
I am thrilled that Vileda has invited me to talk about this book with you. I am a huge fan of their Vileda Turbo Spin Mop and reviewed this over on my blog. The Turbo Spin Mop makes cleaning easy as it features a horizontal handle that makes it easy to carry the bucket without spilling, while the easy-pour mouth makes pouring away dirty water less messy. The integrated handle holder allows you to leave the mop inside the bucket without it falling over.
Always remember to have fun when cleaning, it doesn’t have to be boring! Put on your favourite, most upbeat, motivational playlist and create a daily to-do list that you share amongst everyone that lives in your house.
Here is a little taster of the tips you can find inside my book, ‘How to Clean Your House and Tidy up Your Life’.
Queen of Clean’s Homemade Cleaner Recipes
I am a huge fan of natural cleaning and making my own cleaning products. The air quality inside many homes can be two to five times more polluted than the air outside. Traditional shop-bought cleaning products play a huge part in creating this pollution, which is why I avoid them when I can. Besides, making your own cleaning products can be fun and most of the ingredients can be found in your own kitchen.
Clean the windows on a cloudy day, so the sun doesn’t dry the window cleaning product onto the glass before you have had a chance to dry them. This avoids smear marks. When drying windows always wipe horizontally.
For stubborn marks, use a new tennis ball. Lightly dampen and gently rub onto the wall to remove unwanted stains and marks.
