Mistakes to avoid when keeping your house clean

Your house might be clean but there are few things you do which might not be hygienic. So here are few mistakes you need to avoid if you want to keep your house clean and hygienic.

Using same items for cleaning

A common mistake made by people is that they use the same sponge which they wash the dishes to clean the floor or table. This isn’t very hygienic, so make sure you have different sponge for cleaning the dishes and the floor. The one in which you clean the floor requires stronger medicines which isn’t very safe if mixed with dishes. Similarly your kitchen broomstick should be different to the one you clean your bedroom or living room with. Not many people follow this but your kitchen is likely to get much more messier compared to other areas and it is not very smart if you clean it with the same thing you use to clean your bedroom. So if you have been just using one broomstick to clean your whole house, then it is time to invest on another one immediately!

Not changing old items

Another mistake made by people is that they don’t replace things like their broomstick or dusting material as often. You don’t have to wait till your broomstick breaks in order to replace it. Instead overtime, it might collect a lot of dust and might not be very effective while sweeping so make sure you replace it every 6 months. Similarly the material in which you clean or wipe the whole house with should be replaced as well. Also in order to make sure your house is completely clean and dust free, you need to wash your curtains twice a year and clean your carpets every month. However, if you have a pet then your carpet might need to be washed more often. If you use vacuum cleaner then you need to regularly clean the filter especially if you have pets due to all the fur which is in it. Ideally it should be cleaned at least once a month in order to maintain its quality and for it to perform well. If you don’t know how to clean it, then you could look for it on YouTube.

Lastly, you need to wash your bed sheets at least once a week. Keeping your bed clean is very important, not many people know this but if your pillow cases aren’t clean then you are likely to suffer from things like face and body acne. If you have pets around then train them to not to get on the bed!
