With that in mind, here are 6 top cleaning tips for hard to clean homes: 

Hard to Clean House? Use High-Quality Cleaning Products

One of the best things you can do when it comes to cleaning your home is to ensure you’re buying high-quality cleaning products. Although they may be more expensive, the chances are they’re going to do a much better job when it comes to cleaning your home. Not only that, but they’ll last much longer as you won’t need to use as much. For a guide to the best cleaning products to buy for your home, you can visit this site here. Don’t always go for the top brands straight away though, sometimes there are hidden cleaning gems in the cheaper ranges.

Aim To Deep Clean At Least Twice A Week

Although it may be difficult to fit deep cleaning in around your day-to-day schedule, you need to ensure you’re cleaning at least twice a week. Whether this means cleaning for a little while on the weekends or cleaning a couple of days after work, getting yourself into a habit of deep cleaning will really help. On other days, you should be doing your daily cleaning tasks. I do power hours where I pop music on and just get on with it, It helps.

Think Of Absolutely Everything

When it comes to cleaning you need to be sure you’re thinking of absolutely everything. From the grout in your bathroom to on top of the cupboard in your kitchen, the more in-depth you’re being the better. If you’re looking for ways to effectively clean grout, you can visit this site here. 

Make A List Of Daily, Weekly And Monthly Tasks

Another great way to ensure you’re keeping your hard to clean house clean is to make a list of daily, weekly and monthly tasks you need to do. From cleaning your toilet every single day to hoovering once a week, if you have a list to follow you’re much more likely to keep on top of things. If it helps print out each of your lists and laminate them, marking off when you’ve done each task. I think Flylady still helps with things like this, look her up.

Hire A Cleaner To Help You

If you really think you’re going to struggle when it comes to keeping your house clean or finding the time to clean everything, you may want to consider hiring a cleaner to help you. Not only will they be able to help you keep on top of things but they’ll also clean parts of your house that you’d never think to clean. For a guide to hiring a cleaner, you can visit this site here. One of the very best things I did was to hire a cleaner. We don’t have her anymore. I couldn’t justify it after moving to a bungalow that is so much easier to keep on top of, but still. She was amazing.

Hard To Clean House Tips: Get Everyone Involved

Another great way to ensure your house is staying clean is to get everyone involved. If you’re all mucking in every now and again it’s going to be much easier and quicker to keep everything clean.

Vileda Easy Wring and Clean Turbo Review

There’s something magical about a squeaky clean home. You feel more relaxed, more comfortable and just right in yourself. Now trust me when I say that squeaky clean is not easily maintained when you have a husband and two sons (the two sons especially!) as so every little bit of help I can get is fine by me.

When Vileda asked me to test and review their new Vileda Easy Wrong and Clean Turbo mop and bucket set I jumped at the chance. Yes, I know, who gets excited about a mop and bucket? Thankfully I can save myself blushes as this is much more than just a mop and bucket.

To explain further up until my new mop system (because it feels like a special mop system rather than a bog-standard mop) I was using a two mop set-up. I mopped downstairs (kitchen and hall) with one mop and the bathroom with another. I know that in theory dunking the mop heads in bleach and what not should reduce / avoid cross contamination between kitchen and bathroom but you know what, I just don’t like to spread the mop love so far.

The Vileda Easy Wring  &  Clean Turbo has a removable mop head that after use may then be machine washed at sixty degrees. To say that this makes me really happy would be a huge understatement. No damp mops sat around, steeped in disinfectant, waiting for its next use or until I deem it ready for replacement. It’s mop, wash, replace and go in my house!

I realise that this might not sound overly exciting to some but for someone who doesn’t like to store or carrying around multiple mops it’s a winner (and it looks shiny and nice in utility room). I’m easily pleased!

So, to sum up:

  • The “bucket” features an easy-to-pour mouth so no splashes / mess.
  • The handle is horizontal, again making spillage less likely and the mop easier to carry (plus it has a built-in handle holder).
  • The mop is triangular shaped which makes getting into stubborn corners easier.
  • The mop head is machine washable.
  • AND… you decide how damp the mop is simply by altering the pressure on the squeeze pedal (my not-so technical name for it).
  • It’s perfect for laminate flooring, wood and tiles (and the stone in my kitchen).

I was already a firm fan of Vileda’s product (see a previous review here), and having tried out the Vileda Easy Wring and Clean Turbo I’m happy to give it a solid 5/5 rating for ease of use, design and for getting the job done!
