Below are 8 basic things you can do to prevent dust build-up, to help stop windows getting dirty and a few other tips that you may find interesting or even useful to utilise in your own house.



Using dish soap on your cutting boards.

After using one to slice 'n dice raw meat or poultry, soak it in a diluted bleach solution to prevent cross-contamination when prepping your next meal. Another way to neutralise odors and germs is to use lemon to rub onto the board.

Neglecting your biggest touch points.

Shiny taps are awesomeTaps, handles, and door knobs are some of the most-touched areas in your home, which is why they're also the germiest. Take to 'em with a disinfectant wipe daily to keep germs at bay.

Spraying furniture with polish.

To avoid this, spray your cleaning cloth with the cleaner, then rub the cloth on dusty surfaces, this will assist in keeping the dust on the cloth instead of just spreading it around.

Using the same rag everywhere.

Using a feather duster. Period.

Top 8 Things NOT to do, When Cleaning your Home 5We'll give you a thumbs up for dusting, but a big thumbs down for using a tool that only spreads dust from one surface to another. Use a microfiber cloth instead, which will grab — and hold onto — particles. Make sure it is dry, and wet cloth will make the job harder.

Not dusting your windows.

Forgetting your garbage can.

Using dirty sponges.

To maintain your sponge and keep it clean, soak your sponge in boiling HOT! water only, do not add anything to the water. Allow to soak for 10 minutes, then repeat the process twice more. Once completed, put on window sill in the sun to dry. Placing a wet sponge in a dark area will only attract bacteria to grow.
