This is often people will opt to hire a professional cleaning team to get the job done quickly and safely.

  1. Cleaning the Fridge/Freezer

Cleaning your fridge freezer is one of those jobs that you just never get around to. As it never seems like a convenient time to empty out the contents and do a full clean. So, it is often put off, making the job even harder when you do get around to completing it. Some tips to make this job easier is to do the job before you do your weekly shop, so there is less food to unload and load. Also, its best to use a handmade cleaning solution such as vinegar and water or baking soda and water. As it has a neutral smell which won’t transfer into goods stored in the freezer.

  1. Toilet Cleaning

Nobody enjoys cleaning the toilet or talking about cleaning the toilet. So, let’s get to the point. It’s easy to make this task a less hated one. There are so many products sold in stores for toilet cleaning but many of them are not very effective. Instead of using store-bought toilet cleaners, you can disinfect your toilet with hydrogen peroxide. Also, if you have a build-up of calcium and lime in your toilet it is easy to remove through using a bottle of Gatorade, tip it into the toilet and soak then flush to see the build-up disappear. Also, you can use a pumice stone to remove any water line rings in your toilet. These small tips make it easier to have a clean and hygienic toilet.

  1. Shower Cleaning

Not surprisingly the shower also features as one of the most hated cleaning chores. But we have some tips that can make it less work to clean your shower glass, tiles and tray. The easiest way to keep shower doors clean is to use a glass squeegee. Use it after you shower each day to remove excess water, this will drastically lessen the build-up of soap scum on the glass.  But if you are already dealing with a build-up of mold, the easiest way to remove it is applying a mix of baking soda and bleach, then gently scrubbing using a brush.
