Spring clean 15 minute challenge

Struggling to find the time to fit in a full spring clean of the house, then why not break it down into smaller more manageable chunks?

When you have fifteen minutes to spare try to tackle one area, for example clean out one of your kitchen cupboards….


1. Pull everything out of the cupboard, including any stray jars and packets lurking at the back

2 Go through everything, throw out anything that is out of date or you haven’t used in the past six months (chances are you won’t use it again).

3. Spray all the shelves, doors, handles and then wipe them down with a damp cloth. Try using the Microfibre Kitchen Cloth, it has a soft side as well as a coarse area so is ideal for scrubbing away any spills.


4. Rinse your cloth and use it to wipe down all your jars, make sure you get any sticky finger prints that may have accumulated.

5. Organise. Put all your jars and cans back into the cupboard arranging them by type as you go. Make sure to put the ones you use most at the front of the cupboard so they are easy to get to.

Clean up this Mother’s Day

Cleaning on Mother's Day

 

Struggling to find that perfect gift for Mother’s day? Are you tired of buying the same old gifts every year? Well Vileda are here to help!

 

Why not surprise your mum with something different this year and clean up the house. Show your mum how much you care by letting her relax and put her feet up while you clean up. What bigger surprise for your mum, than coming home to a spotless house and an evening to relax.

 
On average mums spend a staggering 12 hours of their week cleaning, washing, ironing and tiding up after their kids. Why not switch things up and give her a stress free night.

 
Surveys show that mums would much rather be pampered on mother’s day than receive a gift, so why not give her a little extra time to do just that.

 
Pick up those mops and dusters and get to work!

National Cleaning Day – March 19th

THE FAMILY THAT CLEANS TOGETHER

 

We bet there’s one person in your house who normally does all the cleaning, right?

 

Well listen up, here at Vileda we’re launching ‘National Cleaning Day’ – a day on which EVERYBODY in your house should be lending a hand with the cleaning and tidying.
For example the average mum spends a staggering 12 hours a week cleaning up after her children, according to research we’ve carried out.

 

Naturally, these hours reduce as children grow older, but even in households where the youngest child is 17 or over, mums still spend more than seven hours a week picking up their children’s mess.

 

We found that after a gruelling day, 74% of mums spend a huge chunk of their evening putting toys away, wiping down the kitchen, washing up dishes and sorting out clothes which have been left on the floor. Time-consuming chores such as emptying the bath and sink of toys before wiping the porcelain clean also added to their labour.

 

 

 

So we here at Vileda are launching the UK’s first ever ‘National Cleaning Day’ on 19th March, a day on which we are encouraging everyone around the country to pick up their mops, brooms and cloths and help out a little around the home.

 

As our Lindsey Taylor said: “National Cleaning Day is about everyone putting a little sparkle into their home and sharing the workload. It would be understandable if it was just mums of very young children who have to spend the majority of their evenings cleaning, but the report shows it carries on even when the kids are old enough to be helping out.”

 

Lindsey added: “On the 19th March we’d like everyone to pick at least one job and offer to help out. This could be vacuuming the whole house, or even just washing up after dinner – but it will give mum, or whoever normally does the cleaning, a little break.”
And we’ll all raise a broom (or a glass!) to that. Happy cleaning, everyone!
