Living Room Clean Up Tips, Fall and More

Here are some tips from my sister blog site, about.com, re cleaning a living room. It is from a post 15 min. clean ups, and I recommend it highly. It is 9:40 p.m. and all the kids are in bed. You are going to relax and unwind for a little while. As you look around at the living area you're about to relax in, you see a couch, bookshelf, coffee table, and floor in desperate need of help. With just a quick fifteen minutes, you can transform any living area and still have five minutes before the sitcom reruns start. Difficulty: Easy Time Required: 15 Minutes Here's How: 1.Grab your supplies. This is the most important step. Having all of your supplies together before you begin means no distractions in the middle of cleaning up. Everything is handy when you need it. •Basic Cleaning Supply List • Best Dusting Tools •Tools for Dusting •Homemade Furniture Polish 2.Put all items that do not belong in the living room in a container. Do not try to pick up each item and place it where it belongs. Even if you don't get distracted you will waste time running to all ends of the house multiple times. 3.Tackle the couch. Brush off the cushions. Retrieve any missing items from the depths of the couch. Brush off the dirt from the interior of the couch onto the floor. Replace and fluff the pillows. 4.Dust down the coffee table and arrange its contents properly. The goal here is to quickly brush off the table and neatly stack its contents. We're not shining the furniture meticulously, or alphabetizing coffee table books. •Tips For Preventing Dust •Where to Dust •How Often to Dust 5.Neatly arrange the magazines and books. Don't try to weed out magazines and books that you've been thinking about storing or tossing. Just arrange them neatly and move on. 6.Vacuum or sweep up the floor. Don't move furniture to do so. Don't try to vacuum the pillows and couch. Leave these more in depth items for when you have more time. Do, however, remember to get the dirt we brushed out of the interior of the couch. •How To Sweep •Maintain a Vacuum Cleaner •Before You Buy an Upright Vacuum Cleaner 7.Put away your dust rag and vacuum or broom. Take a few moments to enjoy, and take some time for yourself Tips: 1.If you have a few minutes leftover after vacuuming, grab the container and take the missing items to their homes. It will probably only take a few minutes, but save you time tomorrow morning. 2.If the living room is relatively clutter free, use your extra time to vacuum the couch interior after finishing the floor. 3.Unless you're extremely motivated, let yourself relax after doing this quick fifteen minutes. While getting a lot of things done tonight might help you be ahead tomorrow, constantly working and not taking time for yourself will do more damage in the long run. What You Need: •A basket, bag, or box to put non-living room items. •A dust rag. •A vacuum cleaner or broom.
