HOMEOWNERS typically put a lot of pride into the neatness of their space.
As the saying goes: a clean home is a happy home.
A woman known as @Neat.Caroline online has gained popularity for her videos that offer everyday cleaning tips.
She recently posted a video that will have you rethinking the way you spruce up your home.
If you’re one of those people that sprays cleaning product directly onto the surface you’re tackling, Caroline said you’re doing it all wrong.
You should instead spray it onto a paper towel or cleaning cloth.
“This will prevent streaky surfaces and product build up,” she explained.

The microwave may be one of the easiest-to-use appliances in the kitchen, but when it comes to scrubbing off those food stains that appear inside, it’s difficult to get it looking spick and span.
Caroline offered a tip: “Microwave a cup of half vinegar, half water for two minutes.”
Afterwards, just wipe down.
“The steam released from the vinegar will make it easy to remove all of the residue.”
TOILET BRUSH TROUBLES
Another mistake Caroline said many people make involves putting the toilet brush right back in its holder after use.
“Instead, I recommend air drying the toilet brush underneath the toilet seat here, so that it doesn’t breed bacteria in the toilet holder.”
She placed the handle of the brush under the toilet seat, with the head of the brush hanging inside the toilet, untouched by the water.
FLOOR IS FINAL
When cleaning a home, one of the first things that comes to mind is sweeping or mopping the floor.
But Caroline said that before you reach for that broom, you should focus on table surfaces and walls. The floor comes last.
Instead of cleaning from the ground up, she explained: “Clean from the top down. This way, when you’re dusting or cleaning off surfaces, crumbs fall to the floor; and then you can vacuum and mop.”
Her final tip explained why too much laundry detergent is a bad thing.
“You only need one tablespoon of laundry detergent per regular load. Otherwise, too much laundry detergent can strain the machine and leave a gross, soapy residue on your clothes.”
