#2: Tidy up your way… or, the Marie Kondo way
It’s time to put on your Mr. Clean hat and be the Chief Organising Officer to champion decluttering. The popular cleaning guru has said it all with her KonMarie Method when it comes to tidying and keeping things organised. Items such as clothes, toys and books are some of the categories to look at – discard or donate, assess if they spark joy, then organise them. Don’t forget the storeroom – time to make extra space in there too!
#3: Start cleaning from the ceiling; end with the floors
This includes cleaning the ceiling fans, getting rid of dust that are enveloping wiring and lighting, top of cupboards, walls etc. Use a feather duster and follow with a damp cloth to wipe away. Clean the floors last as dust and dirt will settle on them.
#4: Zoom into the kitchen
The items in the cabinets should be removed so that shelves can be cleaned with a towel and disinfectant. Check expiry dates on food – discard and organise them accordingly.
