Basic Cleaning Tips 

You may think that cleaning your home is easy but ask anyone who does it often and they will take you that it takes up a lot of time, no matter the size of your living spaces.

If you want to use your time efficiently, you need to organise your cleaning practices. Here's how:

The Cleaning Caddy

One of the first things we recommend you take care of is getting and stocking a cleaning caddy.  This is a holder that you can fill with the basic cleaning sprays, solutions and clothes that you will need when cleaning your home.

We suggest that you have at least a spray for glass (windows, mirrors), a general-purpose spray for surfaces (your kitchen counter, bathroom vanities, tables) and a spray for limescale that you can use to clean in the bathroom (sink, shower or tub and their enclosures).

Buying or making your cleaning products

You can find all the products you need at your local supermarket. Of course, buying products that are sold by big companies may not be the most eco-friendly solution (and in fact, many such products include harmful chemicals.

You can find several new brands that have a better environmental footprint (including solutions that you just mix with normal water in your own glass spray bottles) or you could also make your own cleaning solution.

Cleaning tips that save time

Below are some of the most basic cleaning tips you should use in every area of your home: 

  • When cleaning surfaces, use microfiber cloths 0 they give a streak-free result.

  • Make sure your cleaning caddy is full of the cleaning materials you always need; this will also save time in the long run. There is nothing worse than starting to clean your home only to realise you have run out of cleaning sprays.

  • Clear any clutter in each room before you start to dust, vacuum, and mop (and we don't mean hiding the clutter in the nearest wardrobe!). 

  • Dust the whole house, in every room, then vacuum all rooms in one go. Doing it one at a time will take longer. 

  • Use a damp cloth to clean mirrors and windows, rinsing and then wiping down with a dry cloth. 

There are many different websites online that will give you help and advice on all sorts of cleaning issues.  It is worth consulting these before trying to attack a problem or area of dirt.  

Online Websites with Tutorials

When shopping online or in person for something, you are generally looking for the best product that meets a set of specific requirements. This could be anything from aesthetic differences like colors and materials to the price and durability of each item.

Several websites will help you with the dirtiest problems in your home.  YouTube is a great place to find a video tutorial on how to remove stubborn mold in your shower. Getting help on how to unblock a drain or sink can also be found there, with lots of advice and step by step videos to help you eliminate common household problems.

TikTok has also become popular for those wanting advice or tips on cleaning their home.  With short, snappy videos and lots of advice and life hacks, it is one of the most popular social media platforms for this type of help and advice. 

You could also use buying guides to assist in getting the proper material you require.

What are Buying Guides?

Buying guides are articles, posts, or even videos that inform customers about specific products, helping consumers avoid common pitfalls that could cost them time and money.

If you are looking for a certain kind of product, getting a guide to your purchasing decision can be an invaluable way to learn what you need.

While this may not matter for something you have a lot of experience with, it can help with products that you have not looked into before.

For example, before making a splash into the latest hoover that can help with cat and dog hair or a new steam mopper, looking at a buying guide can help you identify the pros and cons of the product and help you understand whether it can solve your specific problem.

In other words, a buying guide can teach you all the basics you need to make a more informed and fact-based purchase.

There are countless buying guides out there for every single niche you can think of, so no matter what kind of product you need, you are sure to find a guide for it. The only thing that can hurt you is a poor-quality guide, so it is best to rely on sites, companies, or professional bloggers and bloggers who have extensive experience within that product's niche.

Whether you are overwhelmed by technical information or just do not know enough to distinguish between different product types, a well-written buyer’s guide like those at can be the place to turn if you want to be better informed about what you are buying.


It is fair to say that anyone can clean their house if they put their back into it, and there is an array of online resources to give you all the help and information you need, lots of time-saving hacks, and many hints and tips to make it as easy and stress-free as possible.  

Make sure you have all the cleaning materials to hand when you begin, and listen to some music to help pass the time and make you feel good. For the more complex cleaning problems, always look up tried and tested cleaning tips.

And for those expensive products that can help you in your daily chores, make sure you check out buying guides to help you purchase the right tool for the job!
