Carpet: Vacuum high-traffic areas more frequently and spot clean stains using a mixture of dish detergent, warm water, and white vinegar. Get ready to bust those stubborn stains and show them who's boss!

Couch: Use the "steam" setting on your iron to tackle stubborn stains between professional cleanings. It's like giving your couch a spa treatment - steam away those pesky spots!

Windows and Blinds: Clean blinds with an old sock dipped in a vinegar-water solution for a quick and efficient method. Who needs fancy tools when you have socks? Sock it to those dusty blinds!

Ceiling Fans: Use a pillowcase to dust fan blades, trapping the dust inside and preventing it from falling everywhere. Pillow fights just got a cleaning upgrade - no feathers, just clean fans!

Bed Linens: For white sheets, add a squeeze of lemon juice in the washer as a natural brightener. Get ready for a citrusy fresh start every time you hop into bed!

Duvet Cover: Use the "burrito method" to easily change your duvet cover. It's like giving your duvet a delicious wrap - changing the cover has never been tastier!

Bed Pillows: Opt for down-alternative pillows for easy, frequent cleaning. Fluff 'em, squish 'em, and enjoy a clean and comfy snooze!

Mattress: Spot clean stains with a baking soda, salt, and water mixture. Time to give your mattress some spa-like TLC - say goodbye to those stubborn spots!

Closets: Purge by keeping basics and classics while discarding trendy, duplicate, or uncomfortable items. Give your closet a makeover and let go of those fashion faux pas!

Toilet: Pour vinegar in the toilet to prevent stains before cleaning. Let vinegar do its magic and keep your toilet sparkling - no stains allowed!

Bathroom Sinks: Use disposable disinfecting wipes for daily sanitation. Keep those sinks squeaky clean and wave goodbye to bathroom germs!

Bath Towels: Wash them in hot water (140°F or 60°C) to kill bacteria. Turn up the heat and give those towels a bacteria-blasting spa treatment!

Shower Grout: Use bleach and a toothbrush to clean discoloured areas. Say hello to a bright and shiny shower - it's toothbrush time!

Bathmats: Wash on high heat, but air-dry those with rubber backing. Keep those bathmats fresh and fluffy - they deserve some airtime!

Kitchen Counters/Sink: Use a bleach-water solution to disinfect daily. Let your counters and sink shine like a clean kitchen superhero!

Sponges: Soak them in a bleach-water solution weekly for thorough cleaning. Give your sponges a spa day and keep them germ-free and ready for action!

Oven: Place a bowl of water inside and heat on high for 20 minutes to loosen dried dirt and grease. It's time to steam away the mess and make your oven smile!

Dishwasher: Run a hot water cycle with a cup of vinegar inside for routine cleaning. Give your dishwasher a refreshing cleanse - it's vinegar's time to shine!

Refrigerator: Work in sections during deep cleaning to prevent food from getting too warm. Keep your fridge cool and organized - say goodbye to mystery leftovers!
