There’s no better way to clean an unwanted mess on the floor than using a broom. It helps to sweep away the dust resting on your floor pretty quickly.

Now we all know that even after brooming our entire house, we are still left with few dust particles on the floor that stick to our feet every time we walk, we all know how that feels. I’ve got a perfect way to get rid of it. It can be done through mopping. A mop consists of a bundle of coarse string or yarn which helps in absorbing liquid. A dry mop won’t really help in sticking all the dirt in it. Hence we require a bucket full of water. You need to dip the mop in the bucket, squeeze off the excess water, and then sweep the floor. You’ll notice a dirt-free floor. Try walking on this floor, and you’ll feel no dirt sticking to your feet. You can even let your children play barefoot.

The floor may look dirt-free after mopping, but it hasn’t yet killed all the germs, viruses, and bacteria that live on the surface of the floor. This is where a cleaning agent comes in handy. It is widely used for sanitation purposes and disinfects areas like toilets. You can add it to the bucket of water before mopping the floor. The end results would surprise you, and now you have a speck of dirt free as well as germ-free floor.

This is where a duster comes in good use, it is light in weight and helps you in cleaning that thin layer of dust that often settles on every furniture or showpieces present at your home. Not only this but a duster can be used to move t spider webs away often found on corners of the wall and even behind the sink. Duster is now available with extensible rods, and you can remove the dust from farthest places like the top of your wall where your hand doesn’t reach and even from the roof.
5. Toilet brush and holder:
A bristled toilet brush can help you in cleaning the toilet bowl effortlessly. It is made up of plastic; hence it is light in weight, you don’t have to replace it quite often, which means that it is user friendly. It helps in getting free of all the dirt.

Moreover, sometimes tap and shower end up being pretty greasy, there’s no perfect way to clean it than using a toothbrush. It can also help to clean the bathroom tiles. The firm grip on the toothbrush help in twisting and rotating it at every angle hence making cleaning easier. But make sure that you keep this toothbrush separate or else you would need to end up putting it in your mouth, and that could end up pretty badly.
