An 11-step guide to cleaning three rooms (yes, three!) in just a few hours or over a few days.
- Dust the furnishings. Start with the furniture (tables, dressers, bookshelves) and then move on to the electronics (stereo, television, cable box), wiping down the outsides with a microfiber cloth. Don’t worry too much about what’s inside the furniture: You’ll get to that later.
- Sanitize the telephone and remote controls. Use a disinfecting wipe. Phones and remote controls for electronics and video-game equipment are germ magnets and are frequently overlooked when cleaning.
- Clean the upholstery. Wipe it all down with a moistened microfiber cloth. If your sofa, chairs, and ottomans seem unusually soiled, go over the fabric with a dry-cleaning sponge.
