- Cleaning windows when it's sunny.
According to the experts, cleaning window panes on sunny days is a rookie error. This is because the glass cleaner will dry much faster, meaning you'll probably be left with streaks before you can get to them. You're better off doing this chore on an overcast day or in the evening, and let's be honest - who wants to be cleaning when the sun is out?
There's usually one member of the family who's pretty anal about how the dishwasher is stacked. Those people would be right, say the experts. If you haven't stacked the washer with thought, water and suds won't be able to get to the dirt, and you'll have to put it through second time.
All those bits and bobs that come with your new vacuum have a purpose, and they're really there to help you. This is especially true if you have pets, say the experts. You should use the attachments to collect fur first, to prep the room. Otherwise when you begin to vacuum normally you'll just be pushing dirt from room to room.
