How To Do It Right
A clean and tidy home is important for our life because it got a very positive influence on our wellbeing.

Deep Cleaning Entire Home Checklist
Fridge & freezer
In the farthest corner of the refrigerator, there are always spilled or spilled foods. Go from top to bottom and let it out properly. Once thoroughly wipe and the fridge is like new.
Of course, the same applies to the freezer compartment. Therefore, it is recommended to use a day when you have little ice cream and frozen foods in stock, so that the entire tray can be defrosted once.
Stove & microwave
Cleaning the stove is not much fun for many, as our reader survey has shown. But the more regular you are in this work, the less encrusted the whole thing is. For example, use a foaming oven cleaner that is left to work overnight to remove any leftovers left on the following day. And do not forget the hotplates. This is often teeming with food leftovers.
The same is true with the microwave.
Work surfaces & kitchen appliances
The work surfaces in the kitchen, however, are, if not fully set, cleaned quickly. You even save this step by wiping it off after every meal preparation.
Even kitchen appliances such as kettles, blenders or toasters require regular cleaning. Some have to be cleared of crumbles, the others of lime or leftovers. The outer dust can be wiped away with a rag.
Cabinets & floor
The kitchen cabinets are a bit more elaborate because they have to be cleared out first. Here are those who have few kitchen utensils.
Finally, the floor is still to clean – preferably with a vacuum cleaner and mop. Baking soda and vinegar offer natural help as a cleaning agent, especially in the kitchen.
Fittings and tiles
It’s best to start with the sink and bath and then wipe the wall tiles. Use decalcifying cleaning agents and do not forget about taps and shower heads.
While doing this, you can already let the toilet work for you by adding a little baking soda. After about 15 minutes, everything is done with a little brushing and then rinsing. At the end put toilet cleaner into the bowl and don’t flush. It may remain there until the next upcoming job.
After that, it’s the turn of the washing machine, because no matter how hard you try, there’s often a bit of detergent left. Clean the chamber for the cleaning agent and the outside of the machine. In addition, the lint filter should be cleaned regularly.
Floor & surfaces
Before you wipe the floor, you are still cleaning the mirrors. Make sure that you do not spray adjacent surfaces with the cleaning agent. Ventilate the bath thoroughly after cleaning to prevent mold from forming.
– Living room and bedroom
Especially the areas under the bed or the sofa are prone to dust. If you stash here belongings, you should often check how dusty they are already and possibly vacuum.
Every now and then bring freshly washed curtains a pleasant atmosphere in the apartment. Finally, these also dust and the pleasant smell is distributed in your rooms.
In the course of the large wash, you can also wash the bedding or knock the mattress out.
The same applies to tablecloths, cushions and sofas.
Electronics & Wardrobes
Also, be aware that electronic appliances and wardrobes are top dust collectors. But just use for the TV and stereo better dry towels.

Windows inside and outside
There are window cleaning fans and those who have to force themselves to do so. If you belong to the second group, it is best to clean the inside of the window twice and the outside once a year. Living on a main road or near a park, you certainly have more to do. When cleaning, also think of the window sills.
Just below the windows, the radiators are usually mounted. You will like to forget about cleaning. Here, a lot of dust accumulates here, which accumulates permanently in the interior of the heater and can even increase consumption.
Trash cans & drains
For basic cleaning includes the wiping out the trash. This often causes unpleasant odors.
However, they also come from rarely cleaned drains. If you do not remedy this on a regular basis, the water is soon up to your neck.
Ceilings & doors
The ceilings and storage space like a double floor on the ceiling are difficult to reach, but unfortunately a welcome home for spiders. From time to time you should tackle the situation with a feather duster.
By the way, this also helps to clear the door frame of dust.
Do not forget that lampshades – even those that hang high up – catch a lot of dust.
Last but not least, you should vacuum and wipe the floors in your home again to make it absolutely perfect.
