Lightning Fast Cleaning Hacks for Your Seattle Apartment

Cluttered Seattle Apartment

Employing smart cleaning methods can save you loads of time in cleaning your Seattle apartment, and there are many ways you can reduce the time you spend cleaning by using special cleaners, cleaning in specific ways, and using a smart schedule to clean various rooms.

According to some cleaning gurus, it only takes a few minutes per room to get everything clean as long as you pay regular attention to your cleaning responsibilities. You probably won’t be able to clean anything efficiently if you don’t clean regularly, so you should always employ these cleaning hacks with a schedule of frequent, at least weekly, cleaning sessions.

Top to Bottom Apartment Cleaning

The first “hack” you can employ to clean your apartment quickly doesn’t actually require you to use any special methods or cleaning materials. It just requires you to clean in a different order than you might ordinarily clean.

The Blog at the Happier Homemaker Explains:

“No matter what room you’re cleaning, clean from the top down, so that dirt and dust from higher surfaces falls on lower surfaces that haven’t yet been cleaned. Dust ceiling fans, then furniture wiping dirt directly on the floor. Clean all of the floors as your last step to remove the dirt and dust.”

It might sound obvious that you’d want to clean the ceiling fan before sweeping the floor. However, it’s often easy and mindless to move across a room rather than from the top to the bottom.  It’s easy to adopt this cleaning hack though, and it can save you time in the long run when you don’t have to re-clean the floor after dusting the fan.

Always Have a Bottle of Vinegar Under the Sink

Many cleaning blogs recommend having safe and “natural” items like lemon juice, baking soda, and vinegar around the house for cleaning, but the most important of those cleaning items is definitely vinegar.

Living Well Spending Less Reveals:

“There are a million uses for vinegar. It cleans tons of stuff; plus, it’s an acid, which means it kills bacteria. Vinegar removes stains, and it’s gentle enough to use in most household applications.”

There are a few different types of vinegar at the store, and you can buy the strength you prefer. Some vinegar is distilled with water before you bring it home, and other vinegar is the strong, undiluted kind.

So, Why Is Using Vinegar a Cleaning Hack?

Because it’s your one-stop-shop for cleaning. You can put some vinegar and water in a spray bottle and move around your house cleaning virtually every surface. You can even clean windows with vinegar (as long as the windows aren’t ferociously dirty), which means you can clean the countertops in your kitchen and move onto the windows without switching to another bottle and a different cleaning cloth.
