What’s a clean cozy house—clean enough to feel calm and pleasant, but not so clean that you can't relax and unwind without fear of producing another mess!
As Christmas approaches, we all want to make our homes feel cozier and more welcome.
While we may be drawn to interior design magazines and Pinterest for ideas, it's vital to realize that our actual homes are very different from those we see in magazines and on the internet.
Why? We are, after all, going to live in these spaces!
When it comes to interior design and decor, it's crucial to consider more than just aesthetics because our homes are places where we relax, rest, and recoup.
Designing a beautiful, clean, tidy, and comfortable house goes a long way toward establishing a calm refuge, and there's no better time than the winters to do so.
Before digging into cleaning secrets, let’s see what makes a clean cozy home.
Characteristics of a Cozy Clean Home
● It meets your family's demands without being a hassle to keep up with.
● Clean but not sterile or frigid.
● Welcoming visitors while remaining livable for our family
● Rather than feeling naked or sparse, the space is quite clutter-free.
● Relaxed but still alive and kicking.
● A location where kids can jump around on furniture and construct blanket forts during the day. But where they can be taken up and tidied up quickly and easily before going to bed.

By saving time and energy, these cleaning techniques can take the labor out of your to-do list. So, put these tips in your bag of tricks and call your house cleaning job done!
The Realm of Organizing & Cleaning
Clutter and messiness in your home have been shown in studies to have a negative impact on your overall health.
Nothing looks or feels nice if the house is a mess, no matter how many gorgeous fall decorations are placed on every shelf, corner, and cranny.
Begin with a deep cleaning, comparable to spring cleaning, to create a pleasant and welcome fall house.
Begin by decluttering every room in your home. Starting with a fall rummage sale is a terrific way to go.
After you've decluttered, go through each room one at a time, cleaning it thoroughly from top to bottom. It may take a few weeks, but it will be well worth the wait.
Dust shelves and other surfaces, as well as places that are easy to overlook, such as room corners, skirting boards, and blinds.
Also, don't forget to clean your carpet well. So much dirt and dust get trapped in the fibers. And it's not always possible to remove it all with a simple vacuum or hoover run.
For the greatest results, hire a professional janitorial service.
Don’t Forget the Windows
Start on the shady side of the house on an overcast day, as the direct sun can cause streaks. Raise your blinds or shades and wipe your windows using glass cleaner and a microfiber cloth.
After that, drop the blinds and vinyl shades, dust them with a duster, then vacuum the fabric shades and drapes.
Pay Attention to Doormats
Use two mats, one outside the door and one inside, to trap additional dirt. Hose off and air-dry mats to keep them fresh.
Vacuum both sides of the indoor ones — going over the back will drive stored dirt out onto the floor, making it easier to clean up.
Using Socks to Clean the Blinds
Yes! You can use socks as a duster in this cleaning tip.
Spritz one hand with water while wearing an old sock.
Grip each blind panel and glide your sock-covered hand from one end to the other, dusting both sides of the slat at the same time.
To Clean a Ceiling Fan, Use a Pillowcase
One at a time, slip a pillowcase over the ceiling fan blades and wipe. Dust collects in the pillowcase rather than on your furniture and flooring.
Combine Cleaning Tasks
By executing similar cleaning jobs at the same time, you can kill two birds with one stone. While vacuuming or washing floors, clean your baseboards, and when cleaning windows, clean your blinds.
How to Tackle Dirty Floors?
You need to sweep the kitchen every evening, and vacuum the entire house (and shake out the rugs) at least thrice a week.
On other hard floors, use proper tools and spot-clean any larger messes as needed during the week. here’s what you can do
● Shake out rugs (wash them if you can).
● Floors should be swept or vacuumed.
● Spot clean particular areas with a moist cloth.
● Replace the clean rugs in their original locations.
● Consider whether there are any other places in your home that may use an extra rug to warm it up a little.
Time Saving Tip for Microwave Cleaning
Finally, get rid of those bothersome tomato stains for good.
Put 1 cup of water, a diced lemon, lime, or orange, or several teaspoons of vinegar in a big microwave-safe bowl and place it inside.
Turn the appliance on high for a few minutes, or until the solution boils and the window steams.
Then wait 5 minutes before opening the door. Remove the sponge and wipe the interior and outside with it.
What About Appliances Made of Stainless Steel
Make a solution of dishwasher detergent (1 tsp) and hot water from the tap (1 qt) to restore the luster of your stainless-steel surface.
Scuff the marks using a wipe. Rinse well with hot water and dry thoroughly with a clean wipe.
The Right Way to Vacuum
To retrieve all of the trapped dirt, I recommend vacuuming a room horizontally first. Then vertically.
Vacuuming gently is also vital, according to most cleaning professionals, to ensure that the vacuum gets up all of the dirt particles.
Make a Laundry Schedule
All of your dirty laundries should be gathered in one place.
Begin a load and continue to feed the washer and dryer as time allows.
Fold, hang, and put away clothes as soon as it comes out of the dryer (if you don't have time to finish the job, don't wash and dry any more loads).
Make a room in your home (or two) for dirty laundry.
Consider establishing a certain day or time for doing laundry on a regular basis and promise not to think about it the rest of the week!
Ignore the Bucket
Because of the dirty water splashing around, moving the mop bucket around can sometimes make things worse.
I recommend using a spray bottle loaded with diluted cleaning solution and a microfiber mop instead of a bucket.
Countertops Are Part of Your Home Too
To restore the luster and help repel stains on your kitchen surfaces, dig out the granite polish. Use a specialized cleaner for daily wipe-downs.
The gentle composition of a good cleaner cuts oil and dissolves surface stains without the need for vinegar or ammonia. And it won't leave a dull film like regular dish soap.
Fix Frequent Cleaning Blunders
There is an incorrect method to clean, believe it or not.
Doing things, the right way can save you time and the aggravation of having to clean everything again.
Pay attention to the aforementioned cleaning hacks to improve your skills and save time in the home.
