The last week of the year has arrived and with it the desire to start from scratch. Every new year we want to start a new story, do we want to change something? Do you want your house to look like new? This is the best time to leave it clean, fresh and in order. To start 2019 with a new house, just follow this plan we have prepared for you:
1. Free yourself: get rid of everything that does not work for you
During the year you have accumulated many objects, papers and clothes that you will no longer use. Recycle, donate or give away what no longer serves you. To begin, select and recycle old papers that are no longer useful. Then continue with your closet and then move on to bigger things. You will be surprised how good it feels to get rid of useless objects!
2. Personal organization: your wardrobe and your desk
Once you have finished the first step, you are ready to reorganize your personal things. Take the clothes out of the closet, pass a cloth and put everything back in order. A good tip is to store your summer clothes in boxes or move them to the upper shelves and put everything in winter in a more comfortable place. In this way, you can choose and use the clothes throughout the season without having to mess everything up every time you want to take something out.
From this phase, things get complicated. Deep and general cleanings are not a quick and simple task. You have two options:
- The easy one: hire a Poppins to come to your house and help you perform steps 3, 4, 5 and 6.
- The warrior: do it yourself, little by little and with patience.
If you already have your option clear, we follow:
3. Household cleaning: clean what you never clean
We recommend that this phase clean the refrigerator, the dishwasher, the oven, the washing machine, the dryer and the vacuum cleaner. It is about 6 appliances that we do not clean daily but that deserve a bottom cleaning at least once a year. You will be totally shocked with the amount of dirt accumulated by these appliances!
4. Wash linings of mattresses, curtains and furniture
Yes, although we never do it? we should! Start with the lining of the mattresses, then pick up your fabric curtains and identify the furniture with removable lining. Follow your washing instructions or let yourself be advised by our Poppins and everything will be as good as new.
5. Clean crystals and mirrors
Start the year with transparent crystals. You can clean all the mirrors and crystals with this homemade recipe or use specific products for crystals and mirrors.
6. General cleaning
Finish your annual super cleaning by doing a general cleaning throughout the house.
- Shake the dust.
- For the mop or mocho.
- Clean the kitchen.
- Clean the bathrooms.
- Wash the recycling bins.
After these 6 steps, your house will be as good as new 🙂
Happy New Year from the entire MyPoppins team!
