Cleaning & laundry
Hi there! It’s Donna and thank you for allowing me to come into your inbox.
Today, I’d like to talk about cleaning & laundry.
|CLEANING & LAUNDRY|
Wear an apron with large pockets when cleaning. The pockets may be used to hold cleaning materials such as a dust cloth and polish, or may be used to hold small items you pick up along the way and plan to return to their original storage places. Likewise, put cleaning materials in a basket or bucket and carry it around the house with you so all materials will be handy as needed.
Avoid spot cleaning! Clean the whole surface to ensure no spots are missed. When cleaning counters, start at one end and work to the other in overlapping strips. Use your free hand to check areas just cleaned for extra stubborn spots. Also work in overlapping strips when dusting, vacuuming, washing floors, etc. In large areas, you may find it helpful to divide the surface into sections such as halves or quarters, with overlapping boundaries. Use pieces of furniture (for example, a chair in the middle of the kitchen floor), or use permanent fixtures to mark the boundaries of each section you are cleaning.
Transfer liquid cleaners into containers with pumps for easy use. Containers can be filled with a funnel. Remember that flat-sided bottles upset easily.
To fill a steam iron use a turkey baster, a funnel, or a squirt bottle.
Safety pins or Sock Tuckers (available in department stores) can be used to keep socks in pairs during washing and drying. Some people find it helpful to buy socks in different colors, patterns or textures for sorting purposes.
Wash small items in a pillow case or small mesh laundry bag to keep them from getting lost.
To measure laundry detergent use the scoop provided. Avoid pouring directly from the box.
