Love seeing your house neat and clean? You probably wonder how "clean "people do so if you're among the population struggling to keep an orderly home.

I believe that your home manifests your inner experience externally–a reflection of yourself. Look around your place. Look around your home. Have you ever thought and internalize while sitting in your couch and sipping your coffee on how your surroundings says about you? Your beautiful home basically tells your story, what you like to do, how you feel and with whom you spend time your precious time with.

Our house reflects our personality. It radiates the need for order and space, for each of us to go and have our time alone to reflect. We are a family of people today who embrace time and space alone, except for our dogs that basically are our best companion. Having a home that is light, roomy and furnished in a relaxed manner is all we ever wanted, don’t we?

Whether or not we are aware of this, our homes are one of the few places to express ourselves creatively. For an instance, if you're happy and satisfied, then you can consider buying fresh flowers and open windows to decorate your house with brighter colors to allow fresh air and sun.

On average, Americans spend almost 40 minutes per day cleaning up their homes. And most people are probably inclined to use this time for more relaxing activities except for those who really enjoys dusting dry walls or vents and scrubbing their ovens.

1.      Use Wax Paper to make you sink fixtures sparkly!

Sinks are one of the most dirty spots in the home. And the constant wear and tear on our sinks usually means that, even after disinfection, the sinks are less than clean. Allow your sink to be brand new! All you need to do is, polish these faucets and tap handles with some wax paper after cleansing with anti-bacterial cleansers. It not only helps to remove spots of water, but also helps to prevent future stains.

2.   Clean Your Oven Glass Without Harsh Chemicals.

Do not panic if your microwave looks unhealthy, after too many food explosions–it can be freely cleaned in a jiffy. Just put in the microwave for a minute or two, a warm cup of water with half a lemon and its juice. Leave the mixture in the microwave closed for 5 minutes to make the steam work and then wipe the microwave inside. Your whole kitchen is going to leave the lemon to scent clean and fresh!

3.   Keep Your Washer Smelling Fresh With Bleach

While many of us believe that our washing machines are self-cleaning, that's not true. Indeed, 60% of the washing machines tested contained harmful bacteria, including E.Coli. Needless to say, by combining hot water and one quarter of bleach, you can easily dip the bacteria in your washer and choose sanitary conditions. So say goodbye to you funky-smelling clothes!
