General basic cleaning tips for the kitchen, bathroom and living room

Since cooking is done several times a day in the kitchen, cleanliness is a must. From floor to the cookwares everything should be cleaned accordingly. But of course cleaning from kitchen floor to ceiling everyday is not necessary. Make sure only that you have one day a week or twice a week to clean up everything thoroughly. However, the surfaces should be wiped off after every cooking so that no foods residue will remained. Generally, first is to wipe it on the worktops and tables before to wipe on the floor. So that the kitchen floor can not be subsequently contaminated.

Whether you call it Living Room or Family Room. This room is usually full of electrical appliances that attracts a lot of dust, and dirt. Although cleaning daily can make the room tidy and clean. But how? Here is the basic things I use to clean my own home. Pick up all the items that belong to other rooms ( specially if your kids playing around in your living room so toys will scattered, gew-gaw and etc.). Place them in the room where they belong and set aside. Work from top to bottom. Dust, in order: ceiling, corners, then baseboards. Wipe carefully the surfaces with microfiber cloth to polished. Pick up electricity cord and wipe it carefully. For your sofa leather, brush your leather down with a microfibre cloth at least once a week or use a special leather cleanser which doesn’t cause any damage of your real leather. For your wood forniture you can just simply use water, vinegar and olive oil and mix it well and spray on the surfaces of your forniture then rub it till it cleans.

For simple bathroom cleaning, remove all the items that don’t belong to your bathroom. Brush the dust and dirt directly onto the floor to sweep up later. Clean the sink and counter area. A closed wall cabinet makes the bathroom look tidier.
When cleaning windows, used paper towel, microfiber cloths or newspaper and a diswashing liquid are enough to clean it off, instead of an expensive window cleaners and accesories. Vinegar is also tested to keep the windows streak-free and squeaky clean. And is much more economical than chemical cleaning solutions. Whatever you use, make sure its lint-free.


Something from science about cleaning

Cleaning and maintaining rooms
Cleaning and maintaining rooms is actually not an easy task. In dirty rooms we feel uncomfortable, in the worst case we feel disgust. Care of cleaning utensils therefore serves the preservation of value and ultimately the environment.
For proper care, extensive knowledge of the processed agents and tools is needed. The work planning decides about economically and hygienically working.
The cleaning recommendations listed here are compiled with the utmost care, but can not replace individual advice. For some cleaning tools, it is possible that the manufacturer’s recommendations may differ because, for example, the surface treatment requires other care products and / or detergents. When using cleaning machines, the manufacturer’s recommendations must be observed.
In addition to the cleaning of various materials should be discussed on the planning of a maintenance cleaning and a thorough cleaning. And we are right in the middle of the topic: What do these terms mean?

Visual cleaning: removes all visible dirt, such as spots on, for example, tables or glass doors. The ashtrays and trash cans are emptied, tidied up and ventilated.

Maintenance cleaning: This refers to all cleaning work that is carried out at regular intervals, including weekly wiping or vacuuming of floors, dusting, wet wiping of tables and work surfaces, and window cleaning.

Basic cleaning: Here, furnishings, equipment or floor coverings are cleaned from scratch. In a basic cleaning of a cabinet not only the content is cleared, but also drawers are removed and if possible handles and fittings removed in order to remove the dirt at the transition points between the handle and the underlying surface can. However, you should make sure before demounting that the parts can then be attached again. After a thorough cleaning of the floor, a repeated “care” or impregnation often has to be carried out. A thorough cleaning is not only expensive, but also requires good planning. The necessary working and operating equipment, such as cleaning and care products, machines and tools, as well as the necessary protective clothing, such as fine dust filter masks or protective gloves, must be available if required. When cleaning the floor, who will clean up the furnishings and then re-enter and ensure that the rooms are not needed during this time? The reward of the effort is that a regular basic cleaning also increases the lifetime of the furnishings.

Sanitary Facilities
It is particularly important to cleanliness and hygiene, because there is a risk that disease germs are transmitted. In order to keep the germ count low in a hospital, for example, it is necessary to disinfect it. For cleaning boil-proof cloths and non-scratching cleaning sponges are recommended. In order not to spread germs from the toilet in the bathroom, it is recommended to use a different cloth or sponge as well as for the toilet as for the urinal, the tiles in the surrounding area and the rest of the sanitary area. It is much more hygienic to change the cloth after every toilet cleaning, so that no germs can be transferred from one toilet to the other. The use of wipes already impregnated with cleaning solution also prevents germ transmission via the cleaning solution. The toilet can also be cleaned at the end and when done the cloth can be put in the dirty laundry.
Also in the sanitary area is that from top to bottom cleaned. Sink, bathtub, shower tray: Work your way from the less soiled to the more polluted areas. First clean the outside, then the inside and the fitting. For cleaning, a general purpose, neutral or alcohol cleaner and a cloth or scratch-free cleaning sponge can be used. Regular cleaning usually prevents calcification. In the case of heavy calcium deposits, an acidic cleaner must be used. After use, the fittings should be rinsed with clean water. Finally, the sinks and fittings are dried with a lint-free cloth (e.g., microfiber). For sinks with a dirt-repellent surface (lotus effect), it should be noted that they must not be treated with abrasive or aggressive cleaning agents.

Toilet: First clean the inner area of the toilet bowl with a toilet brush and toilet cleaner and rinse thoroughly. Subsequently, the less pollute prepares for the more polluted areas. You start with the toilet paper holder, clean the cistern, then the lid of the toilet seat from the outside and inside, the toilet seat from the outside and inside the toilet bowl from the top and outside and finally the holder for the toilet brush. As a toilet cleaner, liquid cleaners are preferable to granular ones. Granular toilet cleaners contain partly carbonate, which reacts with water and bubbles vigorously. This bubble effect has no cleaning effect. In order for liquid toilet cleaners to be effective, they should be able to work for a few minutes, so it is best to use the toilet cleaner in the toilet at the beginning of the cleaning work. Toilet cleaners can contain acids such as hydrochloric acid or citric acid. It is essential to observe the danger symbols (or hazardous substance pictograms) and warnings on the packaging (comparison of the old and new danger symbols).

Fittings: Sanitary fittings are made of very different materials, usually a chrome-nickel surface. In principle, non-metallic surfaces are more sensitive to abrasive agents. Faucets must not be cleaned with scouring powder or scouring powder. Do not use detergents containing hydrochloric, formic or acetic acid as they may damage the fittings. Also chlorine cleaners should not be used. If a spray cleaner is used, the agent should be sprayed on the cloth and not directly on the fitting. Calcifications can be prevented by regular cleaning. To clean the corners of the faucets, use toothbrushes or kebab skewers for cleaning.

Tiles: Tiles can be cleaned with a neutral or alkaline all-purpose cleaner. For calcium deposits, acidic cleaners with a pH between 2 and 4 are offered. The acid-sensitive cement joints should be pre-soaked before cleaning and rinsed well with clean water after cleaning. The alternating use of an alkaline cleaning agent can also remove grease and oil soiling as well as residues of skin creams.
Slip-resistant floor tiles should be swept or vacuumed before manual wet cleaning, as it is very difficult to remove coarse dirt such as hair when wiping. In the wet area, the joints must be cleaned from time to time. A Cleaning with a pressure washer, steam cleaner or machine cleaning (e. g, with → scrubber-driers) is possible.

The following materials are attacked by acids:
Cement joints
base metals (fittings etc.)
Marble or other limestone
enamelled surfaces such as shower trays or sinks etc.
colored plastics (e.g., toilet seats, handles, plastic coated partitions)

Doorknobs: Door handles must not be forgotten, as they are often handled with unwashed hands.
In the meantime, microbiological cleaners are also being offered against odors in sanitary facilities. They are intended to remove malodors that form when organic substances decompose.
