Put on rubber gloves and wet them. Run your hand over upholstery, cushions, and clothing. Wool will easily stick to wet rubber, and all you have to do is rinse it off.

Remote control, smartphone, computer keyboard are sources of dirt and bacteria. Get rid of them with antibacterial wipes. The devices will be more pleasant and safer to use.
6. Refresh your shades

7. Put everything you can in the dishwasher
Plastic, glass, metal and even some wardrobe items - many items do not need to be cleaned by hand. For example, in the dishwasher it is easy to bring back a fresh look to beach slippers and baseball caps, not to mention toys for children and pets, combs, shades, silicone baking dishes and kitchen sponges.
Collect all items that have not been cleaned for a long time (or never) and put them in the dishwasher. Start a normal wash cycle.
