1:5:10:017 Tip: The way you vacuum is just as important as the type of vacuum cleaner you use. If you are like most people, you will vacuum a carpet the same way every time. Instead try vacuuming from a different direction each time you vacuum. This will help prevent a build up of soil and make your carpet last longer and be healthier.

Tomorrow I will discuss a great way to clean hard surfaces.

  1. Very good post. This is why I love having hardwood floors. But, I suppose there’s also a “How to Swiffer” guide somewhere. Sigh…

    John Banta says: Thanks for the comment jonsquared – I agree about the hardwood, although I also like ceramic tile (which is most of our floors). Tomorrow’s 1:5:10:365 Tip deals with cleaning hard surfaces using microfiber cloths.

    The “Swiffer” doesn’t qualify since it’s disposible and not considered reuseable (has anyone tried?)
