When it comes to home organisation, it’s important to remember that it’s a journey rather than a destination. What we mean by that is that keeping your home clutter free and tidy is an evolving process that changes and adapts with life, particularly when you have animals or a family.

A tidy home makes it easier to clean, can improve overall wellbeing and saves time on day to day tasks. While many of us find our own ways of organising our homes, there are plenty of tips and tricks out there to streamline the process even further. At Domestique, we see many people’s ingenious home organisation hacks, and wanted to share our top five with you:

Bad smells and persistent odours can become an embarrassing issue in our homes, but what can we do to stop them? Here we offer a few key tips for keeping your home smelling fresh and clean.

When it comes to cleaning our homes, most of us make sure we wipe all surfaces down with the appropriate product – whether it’s antibacterial cloths or polish. But how many of us think about what’s lurking on our windows?

As a property renter, the prospect of doing an end of tenancy clean probably doesn’t fill you with joy, but it’s a necessary evil if you want to get your deposit back. While you might think things like limescale around taps and mouldy walls are fair wear and tear, a lot of the time they’re not, and neglecting them can land you in hot water.

The introduction of the Deposit Protection Scheme gives you some level of protection from rogue landlords who may claim you’ve done damage when you haven’t, but at the same time it offers protection to them if you leave the property dirty or damaged. To get your deposit back, it’s important to remember that when you leave your rental property, your landlord has the right to the same level of hygiene as when you moved in.

With this in mind, it is worth considering the services that are out there to help you through the sale – and we don’t just mean estate agents, conveyancers and removal companies but also domestic cleaners.

Whilst it’s increasingly common for Britons to pay for domestic cleaning services, there’s still a lot of stigma around the idea of employing someone else to do your housework.

Here we offer five very good reasons why hiring a cleaner to help keep your home clean and tidy is not only rational and productive, but well-deserved.
