You have no items in your basket!
New Year’s resolutions are a chance to start afresh and get motivated to achieve your goals for the year ahead. One great way of getting off to a good start is at home – there’s nothing more therapeutic than clearing out the clutter. However, knowing where to start can sometimes be the hardest part…
Luckily, we’ve put together five handy tips for getting the house in order, and updating your cleaning routine. So keeping the rest of your resolutions should be just that little bit easier for you in 2018!
As the saying goes, ‘a workman is only as good as his tools’…
If you have a brush that’s hanging off its pole and a vacuum cleaner that just can’t manage to pick up all that dust and debris – then you’re probably wasting your own valuable time.
Invest in your tools this January and cleaning the house will be a whole lot easier in 2018.
SMART clean your home
Some people call it cheating – we call it SMART cleaning!
The cleaning scale is a broad one – there are those who do everything meticulously and there are those who want the house to be clean and don’t want to spend all day doing it. Our answer to that is – let technology be your friend!
The Vileda VR101 Cleaning Robot will sweep your floors for you at the press of a button, so you can go about your day, and maybe even put your feet up!
Dust no more
How many times have you cleaned the skirting boards, the light bulbs or polished your furniture?
You’ve most likely left it until it absolutely has to get done. Dust collects and gathers in these areas all year round and allergies can quickly develop, however, it’s one of those things most of us forget.
Update your usual duster to a microfibre cloth and you won’t need to use any chemicals this year. Simply wipe over furniture to make dust, and all those other things you don’t need for 2018, a thing of the past!
Banish Storage Wars
Take back control of your home in 2018 and invest in more storage – a blessing when you have a large family and young children.
Secret storage is the key to organised chaos. Try a coffee table with a lid to stash DVD’s, unsightly cables and games consoles, or upholstered cubes, that double up as seating, to store the kids unopened Christmas presents waiting to be played with.
Clean as you go
There’s nothing quite like that ‘ahhhh’ moment, when you’ve finally completed the cleaning and you’re looking around admiring your own handy work – but what if you could feel that way all week long!
Gone are the days of the weekly clean – who has the time anyway? Instead, make cleaning work for you and tidy as you go. That means wiping the sides, putting clothes away and de-cluttering every day.
We like to leave a small box in the hallway that the whole family can tidy bits into throughout the day, ready for a nominated family member to clean away before bed each night.
