Home-cleaning essentials for first time living alone


Cleaning your bedroom


Your bedroom is a precious part of your home. This is where you retreat to rest and unwind after a tough day at work. It is thus important to keep it clean and neat to make it cozy. Make sure that clothes are neatly kept in the wardrobes and there are no items littered around.

Sweep the floor and mop it with a duster. Occasionally, sprinkle baking powder on your mattress and let it settle for some time then vacuum it.

Finally, make sure your home is well ventilated, always. This keeps your house fresh and expels foul smells.  Empty the dustbin daily, and seek to observe your set cleaning routine religiously.
