So that you’re prepared for any last-minute cleaning job, organize your cleaning products beforehand in an easy-to-carry caddy and rethink where you store cleaning equipment so that it’s always easy to access, says Debra Johnson, national home cleaning expert at Merry Maids.
“Make sure it’s easy to find and easy to carry from room to room,” she says. A few tool tips: Stock your caddy with a few coffee filters. They’re great for cleaning windows. Also, a microfiber cloth works wonders. “It removes dust rather than spreading it around the home and helps surfaces remain cleaner longer,” says Johnson.
