Here are our top tips to keep your home clean and comfortable in summer:
- Clean and dust the counters regularly, every day if possible in the summers.
- Keep a routine to change and clean the bed linen regularly. Ensure that you make the bed after you sleep on it every time. This takes a few minutes, but gives your room a clean, organized look.
- Keep the blinds/ curtains closed if you find there is too much light and heat to your liking. But do keep the windows open and ensure that there is cross ventilation in the house.

This can happen when you learn to adjust your windows and blinds strategically to control the heat and sunlight coming inside the house.
