Our homes are filled with a variety of different surfaces from granite and wood to mirrors and glass. Each material has its own unique characteristics that dictate the best process to get it streak-free, sparkling and fresh.
Check out some of the most common surfaces in your home and how best to get them gleaming and glistening:
Luxury vinyl and laminate floors: Debris such as dirt and grit can scratch floors, so it’s best to vacuum or sweep a couple of times a week to help keep these tiny pieces off your floors. Having a doormat or carpet in your entryways can help cut back on tracking in these irritants. Mopping can be done with warm water, a cleaner recommended for your particular floor or a mix of water and vinegar.
Kitchen countertops: Your kitchen sees so much action every day, particularly your countertops where you prep meals and throw items, such as school backpacks and mail. First and foremost, brush off crumbs and dirt daily and make sure to wipe up spills right away, so stains can’t set in. Using microfiber cloths with dishwashing detergent and water will wipe down most surfaces for a deeper clean or pick up a cleaner specific to your countertops’ material.
Dusting 101: Feather dusters tend to push dust around, so a vacuum and microfiber cloths are your best tools. Starting from top to bottom of your rooms and targeting ceiling fans and blinds once a month and other surfaces weekly will help keep your home as dust-free as possible.
Soft surface refresh: Removing and washing soft surfaces, such as curtains and pillow covers will help keep your home smelling fresh. But what about couches and loveseats? Vacuuming helps grab dirt and food bits. A deeper clean can be obtained by sprinkling baking soda, letting it set and then vacuuming it up.
Streak-free mirrors: Bathroom mirrors can get covered in hair spray and toothpaste. To tackle these types of stains, use cotton balls and rubbing alcohol. Then mist the mirror with your favorite glass cleaner and wipe with a microfiber cloth in a zig-zag pattern beginning in the top left corner and often changing the surface of your cloth, so you are utilizing a fresh surface.
