Spring Cleaning

Monday, April 4th, 2011

Have you ever wondered why we chuck the pets in the garden, open all windows and completely bottom the house?

Back in the old days of coal fires and straw matresses it was standard precedure for the housewives to clean the house from top to bottom. The idea was to wait for the winter chill to dissappear and completely freshen the house up. The housewife would clean out the fireplaces and the soot in the house created by the fires, this included the floors. walls, ceilings and furniture in all rooms.

There was often a smell which built up over the winter period due to not being able to air sheets and blankets. Spring was a chance to be able to hang out the laundry after washing and feeding through a mangle. The matresses were normally emptied, washes and refilled with fresh hay.

Jews believed that bread was a forbidden food during ‘passover’ So spring was a chance to remove every last breadcrumb from the house before passover which is in April.

Persians believed in completely bottoming the house in which they called ‘khooneh takouni’. In English ’shaking the house’. A similar tradition is the Scottish “New Year’s cleaning” on Hogmanay.

Cleaning from top to bottom Cleaning reduction tip

Saturday, May 2nd, 2009

I am currently writing a series of small articles, which are aimed at what I call domestic cleaning reduction! Strictly speaking these cleaning tips are focused more on the minimising of the household domestic cleaning requirements within your household, by explaining ways that you can reduce the spread of dirt, grime and germs throughout your property.

Cleaning from top to bottom

When cleaning your property it is always advisable to start at the top and work downwards. If you start at the bottom and work up you will often discover that you will be messing up the bottom again once you dust and clean the higher levels, causing you to have to do the job twice.

New cleaning reduction tips are always more than welcome.

Strictly speaking these tips are focused more on the minimising of the domestic cleaning requirements in your household, by explaining ways that you can reduce the spread of grime and germs throughout your property.

Chimney sweeping

This tip is or should be quite obvious, if you have a coal fire and instead of hiring a professional chimney sweep you decide to clean your chimney yourself make sure that you cover up your carpets and furniture with old sheets.

Also and more importantly secure a board up against your fire surround and make an hole in it just big enough for your chimney sweep rods to go through as this will drastically reduce the amount of soot that escapes into your room.

This advice if followed will most certainly save your carpets and furniture requiring some intensive cleaning.

Keep chickens outdoors cleaning reduction tip

I am currently writing a series of articles that are aimed at what I call cleaning reduction tips! Strictly speaking these cleaning reduction tips are focused more on the minimising of your domestic cleaning requirements in your  household, by explaining ways that you can reduce the spread of dirt and germs throughout your home.

Keep chickens outdoors

This cleaning reduction tip is based on a personal experience of mine that happened many years ago when I used to work on council house maintenance. I went along to replace a ceramic tile above a kitchen work surface and I was warned that the clients’ property was a touch smelly. Upon arriving at the house on that warm summers afternoon I could detect what smelt like chicken s–t/muck and when I opened the clients back gate I was greeted by chickens and a back garden that was totally covered in well chicken muck. I carefully tip toed towards the back door and when the client opened the door to let me in out popped two or three chickens. The chicken muck was also all over the ground floor of the property. The client went on to explain that the chickens had the run of the downstairs but that they were not aloud upstairs! My stomach was reaching and I could not face doing the job and turned around and left. I did end up getting a rollicking from my boss for refusing to do the job!

You can certainly prevent yourself a lot of cleaning by keeping your chickens out doors.

Clean eating cleaning reduction tip

I am writing a series of small articles that are aimed at what I call cleaning reduction! Strictly speaking these cleaning reduction tips are focused more on the minimising of your domestic cleaning requirements in your home, by explaining ways that you can reduce the spread of dirt and germs throughout your household.

Eating clean

This cleaning reduction tip is aimed at preventing the spread of food spillages throughout your property.

It is a good idea to always eat all your meals around a set dining table in your property and not get into a bad habit of eating off your lap or laid out across the living room floor. Often children tend these days to eat away from the dining table and this practice often leads to spillages that not only stain carpets but also crumbs and other food bits can attract vermin into your property.

Make a rule all food should be consumed and eaten at your dining table.

By simply taking care where you eat your food could save you an awful lot of cleaning and also save you needing to phone up rentokill to get rid of vermin.

Drain and sink traps household cleaning prevention tip

I am writing a series of blogs, which are aimed at what I call domestic cleaning prevention! Strictly speaking these tips are focused more on the minimising of your domestic cleaning requirements within your household, by discribing ways that you can reduce the spread of filth, grime and germs throughout your household.

Sink and drain traps

This tip is aimed at preventing blockages in your sink trap or your outside drain trap. Always scrape your waste food away into your household waste disposal point as washing it down your sink hole could lead to your sink getting blocked. Also it could leave an unhealthy revolting smell coming from within your sink or your outside drain.

Also never pour hot fat or grease down your sink as it can cool very rapidly and solidify in your traps and cause you to have a smelly unhygenic flood especially from your outside drain.

By simply taking care of where you dispose of your food waste you could save yourself an awful smelly mess to have to deal with.
