Tackle Your Next Cleaning Projects in Your Apartment Home with a Few, Easy-to-Follow Tips

One way that you can improve your normal way-of-life is through regularly scheduled apartment deep cleanings. While most of us do not feel particularly enthusiastic by the idea of deep cleaning, you must admit that there’s never an inconvenient time to make your apartment feel more comfortable and breathable. It’s true! Dust and dirt can really mess with your mindset. Despite all the benefits of deep cleaning, we know you probably want to get the task out of the way ASAP.

That’s why we’ve provided some quick cleaning hacks below, which will save you time and help you to deep clean your apartment more aptly. 

Use Heated Vinegar to Clean Your Microwave.

No one likes to spend several minutes chipping away at food stains inside your microwave. That’s why this hack is such a lifesaver! Instead of dousing your microwave with cleaning agents, simply place a bowl of half water and half vinegar in your appliance and heat it on high for a few minutes. The steam from the mixture will loosen dried-on stains, so all you have to do is remove the excess with a paper towel or cloth.

Start with a Clean Broom.

Sweeping is a spring cleaning must-do. However, many people don’t think twice about sweeping their apartment floors with a dirty, dusty broom – which only leaves dust behind and often inhibits the effectiveness of your sweeping. Instead of picking up that trusty household broom and going to work, take a few minutes to pull dust bunnies from the bristles and wash the bristles with dish soap and water. Doing so will allow you to start fresh when sweeping, so you won’t have to go back and do it again later.

Give TLC to Your Washing Machine.

Most people completely overlook their laundry appliances when it comes to cleaning their homes. But, washing machines can easily become a breeding ground for bacteria. Before you throw every linen you own in the washing machine, dedicate an hour to disinfecting it first. Start a hot cycle and add baking soda and vinegar. Let the mixture sit for up to 60 minutes, then run a rinse cycle. Pat down with paper towels or a cleaning cloth, if needed.
