All you need for fuss-free everyday maintenance are these 3 cleaning cheats:
1. Wet Wipes
Needless to say, wet wipes are a convenient replacement for damp cloth. Use it to wipe down surfaces prone to dust, and throw it away once you're done. Another advantage of using wet wipes – it doesn't leave water spots on the surface that will dry and potentially leave permanent marks – unlike damp cloths.
2. Lint Roller
Take it from us. This is a LIFESAVER. Originally used to rid clothes of pet fur and lint, lint rollers will make your life so much easier. Any time you see dust, dirt or hair, simply grab your roller and roll it all away! The adhesive nature of the roller will ensure every grain of dirt, strand of hair, and smidgen of dust sticks to the roller – and is removed from the surface of your furniture.
3. Scotch Tape
If you're out of lint rollers, why not make your own? Wrap your hand with a layer of sticky tape and pat the dirty areas with your makeshift 'roller'. Similarly, the adhesive will ensure your dark-coloured furniture get all cleaned up in no time.
