Start form the top

Start at the top of the space and work your way down. Use a duster to remove cobwebs, dust and dander from ceilings, corners, vents, fans and light fixtures. Use a retractable electric spin scrubber to clean the top.

Wipe down windows and mirrors

Clean window sills with glass cleaner and all-purpose cleaner. Use bleach to remove mold and mildew from around windowsills or window frames. You can also work with a electric spin scrubber to remove stubborn stains.

If there are curtains, such as roller blinds or shutters, first vacuum them to remove dust, then wipe them down with a sponge mixed with detergent and water to remove any remaining dirt.

Scrubbing bathtubs and showers

To scrub showers, tubs and enclosures, a multipurpose cleaner is a good choice, along with a non-abrasive cleaner, to eliminate surface dust and dirt.

To clean lingering soap suds from glass shower doors, use a solution of vinegar that dissolves minerals. Mix 1 part vinegar and 1 part detergent in a spray bottle and let the solution work for about 30 minutes, then rinse well with a cloth or sponge.

If the shower is tile or stone, be sure to use a specially formulated stone cleaner that will even remove soap suds.

Disinfecting the toilet

Scrub the toilet with a toilet brush. Clean the outside, back and handles of the toilet with a sponge or paper towel, and use a disinfectant cleaner around, inside and outside.

Although you can choose to please use an electric UV toilet brush with a disinfectant function, which is good to avoid germs everywhere.

You can also pour vinegar directly into a container of water, place it under the top edge of the container and let the solution sit there for 12 hours to dissolve the gunk. Flush a few times to remove the vinegar Turn off the water valve at the back of the toilet and flush to get all the vinegar out When the tank is empty, scrub the walls of the tank with water or, if dirty, a mild all-purpose cleaner, turn on the faucet and flush a few times until the water in the tank becomes clean.
