6 Easy Home Cleaning Tips to Clean Efficiently

Cleaning your home without the aid of professional cleaners can be stressful and exhausting – so much that is hard to know where to start. From piled-up dishes and laundry, scattered toys, dust everywhere, and cluttered papers, we know where you’re coming from. We’re here to help.

Here are 7 easy house cleaning tips to clean efficiently that will get your home a fresher look and will keep you comfortable and organized.

Schedule Cleaning Day

One of the most effective recommendations or tips for house cleaning in Melbourne is to schedule a cleaning day. Just as you book a schedule for professional cleaners for a specific time and day, you should do the same. Imagine yourself as the professional cleaner, create a to-do list, put a reminder on your calendar, prepare the cleaning tools in advance, be on time, and stick to the plan. Of course, you should take a break during lunch and dinner, and get back to cleaning until your to-do list is all crossed out.

Dress like a Pro

You wouldn’t wear your new Godspeed jeans to mow your lawn, so don’t wear them while cleaning your home either. Wear old and loose clothing that is comfortable to move around and you won’t mind getting stained from cleaning. Chances are, your clothes will get bleach stains and spots accidentally. Dress smartly when cleaning to avoid hassle and disappointment. Of course, don’t forget to wear latex or rubber gloves and safety goggles if necessary.

Prepare Cleaning Tools in Advance

There are many recommendations for household chores, but none is as essential as knowing the cleaning tools and products you’ll be working with. Here is a list of cleaning tools and products that might come in handy:

  • Sponge
  • Towels
  • Microfiber Cloth
  • Squeegee
  • Bucket
  • Spray Bottle
  • Scrub Brush
  • Old Toothbrush
  • Broom
  • Dustpan
  • Mop
  • Vacuum
  • White Vinegar
  • Baking Soda
  • All-Purpose Cleaner Solution

Clean Up Loose Ends

When our Effly’ cleaners Melbourne come to our client’s house to clean, they don’t clean over our client’s items, they move them out of the way before moving to the task. Before vacuuming, sweeping, wiping off surfaces, and dusting, ensure there is nothing on the way that will catch the dust or clog the vacuum. Take note of photo frames, bookshelves, light fixtures, television sets, ceiling fans, desks, bookshelves, and other surfaces. Remove shelved items and books.

De-clutter Your Home


Empty desks, kitchen, and medicine cabinets of old, and stale items, organize and clean shelves, and sell, donate, or throw away the items that you don’t need anymore. Declutter your home by ridding it of unnecessary objects. Consider donating books, toys, kitchen items, CDs, and other materials that can still be used at the nearest donation center, or you might as well give them to your friends.


Create a Special Moment out of Cleaning Chore

House cleaning and other chores are not only beneficial for the home, but it is also beneficial for the body, self-esteem, and family. House cleaning is a great way to exercise your body, taking away hundreds of calories per cleaning task. 
And while you’re at it, get your family to help too! The more helpers there are, the faster it is to complete the cleaning chores. Take advantage of cleaning time to bond by playing cheerful songs, dancing, and shouting to the music together while you do the cleaning chores.  Of course, after cleaning tasks are completed, don’t forget to reward your family! Assigning your children a task will allow them to feel as though they are part of the process. Be clear about what to expect to avoid disappointment.


Tidy Up After Cleaning


Our cleaners in Melbourne don’t leave their equipment and supplies behind. You should do the same! Tidy up after cleaning, and ensure to keep your equipment and supplies in a safe and accessible area. Make sure cleaning chemicals are out of your child’s or pet’s reach.
