Tips For Cleaning Your Seattle Apartment Easy & Fast
Posted by admin 01.29.19 6:44 am admin
Keeping a clean apartment can help you stay organized in every area of your life and can lead to a relaxing existence without days spent rushing off to work late because you were so disorganized you forgot to set your alarm.
A clean house makes it easy to entertain and invite guests over at the last minute, and it can also help save you time by reducing the likelihood of losing your keys, sunglasses, or something else you need before you head out for work or school.
Here are a few tips that can help you lead a more relaxed and organized lifestyle.
Don’t Clean the Entire Apartment for Guests
It can feel exhausting to clean an entire apartment, from top to bottom, and it’s not uncommon to feel a little panicky at the thought of welcoming guests into your apartment when you haven’t cleaned in a while. However, there’s no reason to become a slave to your apartment in advance of a get-together or gathering with friends.
According to Make Space, all you need to do is focus on the rooms where your guests will actually hang out while they’re at your apartment.
“…there’s no need to clean your home office, since you won’t be showing Aunt Diane how to use your new printer. Simply shut the door on that space and worry about it later.”
In most cases, focusing on the guest bathroom, the living room, and the kitchen is enough when it comes to cleaning for guests. If you only have one bathroom in your apartment and your guests will need to use the bathroom connected to your bedroom, you might need to spend a little time shoving the clutter that usually sits in your bedroom into the closet or somewhere that people can’t see it.
Use Baking Soda, Lemon Juice, & Vinegar to Clean Everything
Buying cleansers to keep your apartment clean can get expensive, and the residue and smell left over from some caustic cleaners can remain in your apartment for hours or even days. Using baking soda, lemon juice, or vinegar to keep your home clean can offer a less toxic and less expensive option for scrubbing various surfaces in your Seattle apartment.
The blog at For Rent offers a simple way to clean nasty spills:
“There are some spills that need to be cleaned away as quickly as possible. For example, if you are unlucky enough to have to clean vomit or urine out of a carpet or off of a sofa (pet, child, or any other type), you can take some of the difficulty out of the clean-up by making a baking soda paste and spreading it across the area. Let it dry overnight, and then vacuum up the dried remains the next day.”
For other spills and cleaning needs around your apartment, vinegar can help clear out any moldy spots, and lemon juice can help freshen areas like a smelly garbage disposal or toilet. If you have guests coming over for a get-together, tossing a lemon in your disposal right before guests arrive can cover up any less-than-stellar scents in your kitchen.
