This month, we’ve teamed up with the home interior and lifestyle blogger Danielle to give the Vileda community an insight into her beautiful interiors and helpful home hacks. Danielle’s stunning Instagram feed, @housetohomeatlast follows her home renovations journey and we’re so excited to have her as our Vileda guest blogger. Read on to find out her simple tips for creating your dream home and the household items she couldn’t live without. Tips and Tricks for Creating your Dream Home Creating your dream home is something that takes time and something you don’t want to rush, it needs to be right and fit exactly what you want. We renovated our own home back in 2017, and although all major jobs are done (kitchen, bathrooms etc) even now I ’m still accessorising and finishing off rooms with pieces that I find along the way. Don’t try and do too much at one time. It can be easy to get carried away and want to do it all but it can be a stressful time having your home upside down so try to contain the disruption to certain areas at a time. Especially if you have a young family. We only had to move out for one week while we had our renovations going on. It’s easy to make big changes to a room without needing to go all out. You can also make the room appear bigger with a few tips and choices. A simple coat of paint to freshen up a room and some new accessories can really make a big difference. In a bedroom, painting the walls, new duvet, some scatter cushions and bedside lamps can create a whole new look. In a kitchen, a fresh coat of paint, some new worktop accessories and a declutter. Try to keep your worktop items to a minimum, it may be ‘tidy’ what you have on the tops, but a lot of things can make it appear cluttered. For example, I keep my toaster in the cupboard and only bring it out when I need it. The kettle is obviously on the top alongside some nice canisters for tea, coffee etc and the rest is mainly clear. Try adding a nice vase of fresh flowers onto the hob. I always have a little tray with flowers on my range cooker to brighten it up and add something to what can usually look dull and boring. Keep your paint colours light. Light colours really open up a room and make it appear bigger. Using furniture with exposed legs, i.e. couch or bed, can also give the illusion of a bigger space rather than things that sit flush to the floor. And the same for other rooms as well, keeping only the essentials out on show. Having too many things around makes rooms cluttered, appear untidy and smaller. Find furniture items that have a lot of storage so you can hide lots of things but still have them to hand when you need them. Footstools with storage inside are a great way to hide magazines, remotes, DVD’s etc when not in use. Using big mirrors also help to give the illusion of a bigger room. Household items I couldn’t live without: My vacuum is top of the list. I try to vacuum daily if I can. Clean carpets always make a room look tidy and give a real sense of satisfaction when they’re done. You’d be surprised how much dust still comes out of them daily, so imagine how much builds up when you leave them a few days. My Vileda Windomatic Power is a brilliant gadget that I absolutely love. Amazing for when I’ve cleaned the shower to suck up all the excess water which will always undo any hard work you’ve done if left to dry on the screen. It makes cleaning windows a breeze and with 2 different suction modes you won’t find any water left behind. It cleans up to 120 windows in one charge so it’s always there to hand when you need it and you don’t have to worry about charging it after every use. My kettle. I love a nice cup of tea. First thing I do in a morning is make a cuppa and write a list of things that I want to get done that day. This helps keep me motivated and stops me forgetting. You can’t beat a good pen and paper list. Housework Don’t feel housework has to be a chore, you really don’t need to do that much to keep on top of it. Once you’ve had a real good tidy throughout it’s easy to keep on top by doing a little bit every day. If you don’t have time to do a full house clean then just tackle one room a day to get on top of it. Keep it fun, I always clean with music on. Whatever you’re into, turn it up and have fun with it. I have the kids help me out with their room to make it easier as that can always get out of hand and now, we’ve done it for a while it’s just part of the routine for them. At bedtime they both do a 5 minute ‘bedroom blast’ and put away any toys that they’ve had out and just a quick tidy up. Before school I ask them to make their bed. Even if you need to go back in later and tidy yourself or make the bed properly at least they’ve helped, made less work for you and it gets them into a good habit of keeping their rooms tidy. Each day do a little bit to keep on top. While the kids eat their breakfast, I’ll load the dishwasher and put away anything from the night before. Then spray and clean the worktops and sink down and give the floors a quick once over with a mop. Only once a week, I will I give it a really good deep clean. Go upstairs, make the beds, put away any clothes left out. The bathroom gets a deep clean once a week. Every other day just a quick tidy up of towels, swill the sink to get rid of toothpaste and put some toilet bleach down. In the sitting room I plump up the couch cushions and tidy anything away that shouldn’t be out. I’m constantly trying to keep one step ahead of muddy feet coming in and out, so, find having a lightweight, ready-to-use mop, like the Vileda 1-2 Spray Mop makes all the difference for quick cleaning jobs. Give everywhere a dust and then vacuum throughout. That keeps on top of it and can be done in around half an hour, no time at all. When the house is tidy, you’re happy and it gives you a sense of satisfaction. Tidy house, tidy mind. I always feel better after a tidy up. We all have things we wish our house had, bigger kitchen, another bedroom, bigger bathroom but be proud of what you have, make it your own and love your home.

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. Cleaning Tip 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. Handy Hint For stubborn marks, use a new tennis ball. Lightly dampen and gently rub onto the wall to remove unwanted stains and marks. Follow me on social media for daily motivation and tips! We can't wait to try out Lynsey's handy cleaning tips and tricks around the home! You can read all these vand many more when you pick up Lynsey's clean-tastic book, available to purchase now from Amazon.

It can sometimes seem impossible to find the inspiration to dive into the cleaning cupboard and kick off your spring clean. Even when you finally get the motivation to start, it can feel like a never-ending chore. Have we put you off your spring clean yet? Whether that’s a yes or no, we want to make the daunting spring clean as easy and quick for you as possible. That’s why we’ve devised our top tips on how to make your spring clean a whole lot easier. 1. Plan, plan, plan Save time on your spring clean and get planning. Starting with a to-do list will help you tick of the chores as you go and not let the housework get on top of you. Next, make sure that you have the right tools to tackle the deep clean. You don’t want to get halfway through the house and realise you’ve run out of mop refills. So, before you really get down to business, get organised. We promise it will help you fly through the spring clean in no time. 2. Clean curtains make all the difference Like most fabrics your curtains will need a good wash once in a while. Over time, curtains gather dust, pet hair and sometimes even mould spores - not ideal! If you’re going for a real spring clean, then you won’t want to clean the entire house and leave the curtains to sprinkle dust around like a pesky dust fairy. How you wash your curtains depends on the fabric so always check the washing label first and read the manufacturer’s advice before proceeding. For machine washable curtains wash one panel at a time and use a ‘delicates’ cycle, or a cool wash. For hand washing, use the bath or a large sink, a handwash powder or liquid and check the washing label for the best water temperature. Once the washing is completed, the Vileda Doble X-Legs Indoor Airer is perfect for air-drying the curtains. The airer’s extending lines and increased drying space will help reduce creasing and make ironing easier. 3. Don’t let the windows stop you Does your household contain furry four-legged friends or little monsters? If yes, you’ll know how grubby glass doors or wall length windows can get with handprints, nose prints and even sometimes face prints (kids, huh?). It’s only as you begin cleaning your windows that you realise how grubby they actually are. With a window vacuum this normally tedious task can be finished in a flash! The Vileda Windomatic Power is a cordless window vacuum which helps to speed up the time it takes to clean your windows by quickly removing excess water and suds after having wiped them with a wet cloth. Plus you can say goodbye to thinking you’ve finished cleaning your windows only for the sun to shine and reveal streaks everywhere. The Vileda Windomatic Power will leave you with a sparkling, streak-free finish. 4. Tackling the floors For many, cleaning the floors is their least favourite c We can understand why if the cleaning tools you have are not up to par and you end up having to get down on your hands and knees to achieve a deep clean. Luckily, you can avoid this with the Vileda Steam Mop, the perfect cleaning tool for hard flooring. Kitchen and bathroom floors can attract bacteria that may be harmful to you and your family. The Vileda Steam Mop kills 99.9%* of bacteria from your floors without the use of harsh chemicals. * Tested on E.Coli bacterium And that’s not all! The Vileda Steam Mop includes a carpet glider that can be attached to the base enabling the mop to glide over and refresh your carpets. The Vileda Steam Mop is the ideal everyday - as well as spring clean - partner, and will give your floors the deep clean they deserve. We hope these tips will help you tackle that daunting spring clean in a quick, smart, and efficient way, saving you time which can be spent truly enjoying the Spring months - doing things other than cleaning!
