The new year is always seen as a new beginning, a new chapter of our lives. This is the perfect time to try out new things and to start on our new resolutions. While this is often seen as a metaphorical cleaning of the slate to start a new chapter, that does not mean we can’t start the year with a physical cleaning!
Having a clean house has an immense impact on mental health, with studies showing that cleaning can enhance your mood, and having a clean home can lower your anxiety! What better way to start a new year than with a clean home! We went ahead and collected some top-notch cleaning tips to help you start the year the right way.
Tip 1 – Keep your tools together!
A simple and easy way to help you clean is keeping all your cleaning supplies in one place. Use a cleaning caddy or bucket to keep your cleaning supplies in one easy to reach place. This will also prevent wasting time looking for specific supplies while you are in the middle of your cleaning session.
Tip 2 – Keep separate tools for your bathroom
We all know the bathroom can be a germy place, keeping separate cleaning tools for your bathroom will help prevent the spread of germs to other areas of your house. No one wants to wipe down a kitchen counter with the same sponge you used on the toilet!
Tip 3 – Your toilet is not the dirtiest thing in your bathroom!
According to a 2011 study by NSF International, our toothbrush holders are hosts to the largest number of germs, bacteria, and mold! Regularly cleaning your bathroom surfaces with our Ambi Pur WC Active Clean Spray will help reduce the amount of bacteria and mold found in your bathroom. This spray is bactericidal and helps reduce lime-scale build-up which makes it perfect for cleaning your bathroom and kitchen.
Tip 4 – Getting the most out of your cleaning supplies
Did you send a whole day cleaning, only for things to look dirty a day later? You may be using your cleaning supplies wrong! It is always important to read the directions on your cleaning supplies carefully. Some cleaning supplies, like our Ambi Pur WC Active Clean Spray and WC Active Gel needs to sit on the surface for at least 5 minutes to work at full capacity. So, spray or pour your cleaning solution onto the toilet, sink, or bathtub and let it sit for 5 minutes before removing it with a damp cloth. For stubborn stains scrub your surface after a few minutes before you wipe it down. You could always clean another part of the house while you wait.
Having a clean home can be a challenge, but if you work smart and have products that make it easier to clean, it can be easy. Shop our range of bathroom cleaning supplies and start your journey to a clean home today!
