Course Lessons

  • Lesson 1 : Your Cleaning Kit

    Before you begin any project, you must always ensure that you have the right tools for the job.
  • Lesson 2 : Creating a Routine

    Your house and all of your possessions need cleaning at certain points, and when you consider the size of your house or the number of your belongings, it can seem like a daunting task to keep everything neat, tidy, and clean.
  • Lesson 3 : Making Your Own Cleaning Supplies: Chemistry, Fundamentals, and Recipes

    Even with the advent of more sophisticated (and very powerful) cleaning agents, more and more people are turning to making their own cleaning supplies, for a number of reasons.
  • Lesson 4 : Cleaning the Kitchen

    In this course, we will review how to clean each room in your house, and we will start with the kitchen.
  • Lesson 5 : Cleaning Bathrooms

    Proper hygiene in the bathroom is extremely important. While bacteria are of course a concern, you must also consider mold in the bathroom, as mold tends to grow in warm, moist environments.
  • Lesson 6 : Cleaning the Living Room

    For many people, the living room is where you relax after a long day. It should be as inviting as possible, and that begins with keeping it clutter-free. Your daily routine should always include tidying up the house, and especially the living room.
  • Lesson 7 : Cleaning the Bedrooms

    The bedroom is a place of rest and nothing impedes rest as much as uncleanliness. Your bedroom should be a sanctuary, and the best way to start in creating an environment of rest and relaxation is to de-clutter.
  • Lesson 8 : Cleaning the Laundry

    Cleaning the laundry is a big part of keeping a household clean. By following the care labels attached to garments and following the instructions in this chapter, you can extend the life of your clothes and make the laundry process easier.
  • Lesson 9 : Furniture Care

    Many people have invested a good deal of money in their furniture, so it is important to know how to properly care for it.
  • Lesson 10 : Pets and Allergies

    Our pets are dear companions for many people and we strive to make them as happy as possible in their environment.
