5 Ways to Make House Cleaning Easier
While I do actually have a housekeeper, she has not been able to come every 2 weeks as she usually does – she’s been here twice since March. This is definitely a good thing in terms of saving money, as things are pretty tight financially due to COVID19 and some things happening within the family (I am remodeling my house and my daughter is currently in between jobs)! I have saved about $1000 since March by cleaning my house myself – and I am learning all kinds of tips and tricks to make this process more streamlined.
Get Your Cleaning Products in One Place
Instead of scouring the internet and your local weekly sales flyers for cleaning products on sale, why not stick to one brand? DAZZ effervescent cleaning tablets provides safe and effective cleaners for the home without any harsh chemicals, while saving money and reducing waste.
I just received a package to begin using and I have been busy with moving stuff around in my home – not only did I just completely renovate my home office into a studio apartment, but I also have Angeline moving most of her belongings back into my house because she is leaving her place in Fort Lauderdale and moving to North Carolina. It has been NUTS around here, and to say that I have had a hard time keeping up with the cleaning would be an understatement.
DAZZ currently has 3 cleaning products: All Purpose Cleaner, Bathroom Cleaner, and Window & Glass Cleaner. With the DAZZ Home Starter Kit, DAZZ includes 3 reusable spray bottles and 3 DAZZ cleaning packets. The DAZZ spray bottles are designed for longevity, ease-to-use, and trigger spray, reimagining clean with refillable packets that save money, easy-to-clean, and safe-to-use. You can actually get a whole house starter kit for under $20 on Amazon. (You can find it for $18.99 here!)
DAZZ Innovative Cleaning Tablets are Safe and Effective, Saving Money and Reducing Waste!
DAZZ is protecting all you love for a safe and clean home without any harsh chemicals! With a mission to reduce plastic waste from single use spray bottles, DAZZ researched and developed all-natural, non-toxic cleaning tablets that would meet high efficacy cleanliness standards.
DAZZ founder, David Shahan, applied his extensive background in cleaning detergents, solvents, and other cleaning compounds to make a sustainable product that would work. DAZZ is transforming how we clean with their innovative cleaning tablets.
Each of DAZZ cleaning products are made with ingredients that are plant and mineral based, sustainably sourced, cruelty free, and have a light, pleasant fragrance. DAZZ cleaning products contain only six ingredients. DAZZ is unique in its effervescent tablets that are made to fizz as they dissolve in warm water. The fizz reaction is a combination of sodium bicarbonate (baking soda) and citric acid (derived from citrus fruit), each known for its effective cleaning properties.
5 Ways to Make House Cleaning Easier
The detergent in DAZZ cleaners is derived from coconuts, which provides multiple functions to clean for a brighter, cleaner home. The lubrication serves in removing contaminants easily from the surface, performs as a stain remover, and protects surfaces. DAZZ All Purpose Cleaner is great to use on all hard surfaces.
While DAZZ cleaners don’t need to mask harsh chemicals or odors with scents. DAZZ adds a light touch of fragrance that provides a brief, fresh scent while cleaning. A very small amount of natural colorant is added to help customers quickly identify each product.
The last ingredient in DAZZ is water from the tap. Most traditional cleaners on the market contain 90-95% water. With DAZZ, there is no need to buy another plastic bottle, filled with water and harsh cleaners. DAZZ provides safe and effective cleaning solutions that allows one to reduce, reuse and refill for future applications, changing the use-and-discard plastic spray bottles.
Now more than ever, consumers are looking for cleaning products to keep their families and their homes safe. DAZZ cleaning products are a sustainable cleaning solution, protecting all you love. DAZZ Cleaning Tablets can be purchased at dazzcleaner.com, Camping World, and Amazon.
Invest is Easy Cleaning Shortcuts
I am no longer a sponsored ambassador for Swiffer products, but I still recommend them just as much as when I was being paid to do so! It is so much easier to grab a Swiffer Sweeper, WetJet or Duster, rather than pull out all of the brooms, mops, dustpans, etc. With 3 dogs and 3 cats, I am constantly sweeping and mopping, so this really makes a huge difference! It is much easier to grab a Swiffer WetJet than filling a bucket with water and cleaning solution once or twice a week so that I can mop.
I recently began using reusable pads for both my Swiffer Sweeper and My Swiffer WetJet, you can find out about those in this 3 Ways to Be More Eco Friendly at Home post. These Turbo Mops reusable pads are great for both dry and wet cleaning, and I love knowing that they can go into my washing machine and NOT into landfills.
Invest in a Robotic Vacuum
Now, as most of my regular readers know, I have always had a house full of pets! We are currently at 3 dogs and 3 cats, so as I mentioned earlier in this post, I am always sweeping and mopping. I invested in a new robotic vacuum during the Amazon Prime Day, and I am so happy to have this bit of help each day in keeping the pet fur and dander under control!
Use Carpets to Prevent Tracking in Dirt and Yard Debris
As you can imagine, much of the debris I have to worry about cleaning up on a daily basis is dirt and grass clippings that the animals bring in from outdoors. We spend a lot of time outside, so with three dogs…I am sure that you can imagine how much stuff they track in!
Keeping a small throw rug – or a larger one – is a great way to prevent some of that dirt from being brought into your home.
Dust Common Areas on a Weekly Basis
The heavier trafficked areas in your home tend to collect more dust and dirt than rooms that aren’t used as often. Keep your dusting supplies handy and do a simple sweep through once a week. This is especially helpful if you collect a lot of knick knacks!
I keep a few Swiffer dusters around the house and do a casual sweep over my bookshelves once a week.
Of course I also do a regular dusting a few times a month, but this helps keep it all at bay in between “real cleanings.”
Ask for Help Around the House
Now, I live alone and usually have a housekeeper. But if you have a significant other, children, a roommate – there is no reason why everyone in the household can’t do chores. Take turns with individual rooms, or divide up certain chores between household occupants. If everyone pitches in, it is very easy to keep your home clean!
I hope that these 5 Ways to Make House Cleaning Easier give you a few ideas for streamlining your house cleaning process! Do you have any tricks or tips? If so, I would love to hear about them in the comments!
