Organising with cleaning tools
Cleaning is an aspect of organising a living space. This activity involves the use of cleaning tools. Yet, no matter the level of technological advancement human society has attained, some items in the home are still not automated. Cleaning tools such as brooms, mops, and brushes fall into this category. To do the work they are expected to do, there will always be the need for good brooms and brushes and proper care of them.
Always hang brooms to keep the bristles in shape. If there is no hole in the handle, simply drill a quarter inch hole, thread a nylon cord through, and tie in a knot. A handy hanging loop can be got.
Clean by dipping in hot sudsy water. Rinse and dry with a rubber band around the bristles so they can keep their form.
Sponge mops should be washed, rinsed and kept upside down to dry after each use.
Wet mops should be washed and rinsed after each use in hot sudsy water. After rinsing, shake out to separate the strings and allow to air dry upside down.
If there is no intention to shake out the mop outside, put it in a plastic or paper bag and hold the bag closed around the handle to remove the dust.
