Everyone room on your move-out cleaning checklist should finish with you cleaning the floors. The floors are the very last thing you should do in each room before heading to the next. And they should only be done after you’ve got everything completely moved out of that space.
If you have any countertops or a vanity in your bathroom be sure to clean out the drawers in them (like we did in the kitchen) and give them a nice wipe down using our all-natural cleaning solution. Dust off any framing on these structures and wipe down the mirrors before calling them complete.
General living spaces/Bedrooms
Make sure you check all ceiling fans and permanent light fixtures for debris or dust. These should be the first things that you clean in each room since they’re dusty. Clean these fixtures before cleaning the surfaces (countertops, appliances) and floors.
Every room should be checked for baseboards that need to be cleaned. Be sure to go around and clean these before you clean the floors and after you dust in each room.
You don’t need to get out the surface cleaner and scrub your walls clean but you do need to make sure there are no visible marks on them. Go around and look for holes in the wall or marks that need to be covered up. Get rid of any dust and cover up any marks with touch-up paint.

Get out a small microwave-safe bowl and fill it halfway (about half cup) with vinegar and pop it in the microwave on high for 3-5 minutes. When it’s finished, let it sit for about 1 minute before removing the hot bowl. Then you can go ahead and grab your cleaning cloth and wipe the microwave completely clean – no hard elbow grease necessary. You can also go ahead and add a few drops of lemon essential oil in the bowl for a fresh lemon scent.
Does your toilet brush cleaner have a small holder for you to set it in when you’re finished with it? Go ahead and fill that bowl with a disinfecting cleaner like Mr.Clean. Not only will this help deodorize your bathroom, but it will also help keep your toilet brush clean. Who wants to clean the toilet with a dirty toilet brush?
Using the right cleaning products
Before you find the motivation you need for cleaning the house when you’re sick, you need to make sure that you’re using cleaning products that aren’t harmful to you and your family. Certain cleaning products can be really harmful, not only to certain surfaces in your home but to the air that you breathe in.
The last thing you want is to start cleaning with a chemical that only enhances your illness and sends you to the hospital. Consider making the switch to all natural cleaning products to help protect you and your family from ingesting toxic chemicals.
Maybe your motivation is music. Maybe it’s germs. Or maybe it’s knowing that you’ll feel better once you do it. No matter what it is, there’s a motive behind every household cleaning routine (sick or not) and it’s time for you to find yours. Below we’ve lined out some tips to help you.
Make sure you have disinfectant wipes ready

First things first, before you begin you’ll want to gather all of your cleaning supplies so that you’ll have everything you need handy. After you’ve gathered your supplies you can start the kitchen cleaning process.
Next you’ll go around and pick up and trash or spoiled food and throw it away before taking out the trash. Nothing more to it, this steps pretty simple.
Do the dishes & clean the sink
Once you’ve dusted, taken out the trash, done the dishes, and cleaned the sink you can now start to disinfect and clean all the touchable surfaces in your kitchen. This is your countertops, your microwave, drawer handles and knobs, the handles on your refrigerator (and the outside of it), and anything else that you or your family may have touched. Go around and spray the surfaces with your disinfectant and allow it to sit for at least 1 minute before taking your cleaning cloth to it.
The very last thing you want to do when cleaning any room in the house (but especially the kitchen) is clean the floors. You’ll work from the inside of the room to the outside of the room when sweeping, vacuuming, and mopping the floor so that you don’t have to backtrack.
And that’s really all there is to it when it comes to kitchen cleaning. The more you settle into a cleaning routine the easier it is to clean it each week.

When it comes to cleaning, water can aid you in a variety of ways. is hot water more effective than cold water? Let’s take a look.But there’s one question everyone seems to be asking and that is:
Hot water doesn’t exactly kill bacteria but it does aid in the removal of it. It gets rid of potential hosts for bacteria by working together with detergent to attack oil and grime. It’s best to soak things in a bucket or a bowl of hot water and detergent for at least 30 minutes to make this method effective.
Can’t get that hard stuck on food off your plate so you can throw it in the dishwasher? Hot water is great for cutting stuck on food off of surfaces.
But here’s the catch…
Cold water is better for your laundry
Though hot water is better for the majority of household cleaning tasks, cold water is better for your laundry. Using cold water for your laundry can prevent stains and odors from setting further into the fabric.

Baseboards are everyone’s least favorite household chore, we get it. But that’s only because it’s a pain to clean them, until now. Stick a dryer sheet on the end of your broom and run it along the edges of your baseboards. Not only will this help you dust them, but it’ll also help fresh things up a bit too.
The coffee pot is probably one of the most neglected household appliances in your house. Of course, you use it every day, but how often are you actually cleaning it?
