What if we told you that most people don't vacuum properly? It seems like one of those obvious housekeeping skills, but you'd be surprised.
If you've been unsuccessfully battling dust in your home or your carpets constantly look dingy, chances are these tips can help you.
1. Dust first!
First, shake your curtains to loosen any dust from them. Then using a damp microfibre cloth (or your favourite method) dust your furniture.
2. Prepare the area
Pick up toys, pet beds and other large items from the floor. At least once a month you should also put chairs on top of tables, move small furniture to another room and pull furniture away from the wall so you can vacuum those places, too.
