Use horizontal wiping motions starting with the upper left and moving in the right direction. Depending on the surface, you can adjust your pattern by using small, circular rubbing motions instead of horizontal swipes.
A plastic container is useful to collect any debris, rather than trying to scoop it from the edge of the surface into your hands.
If you use a thin cloth, you can feel the edges of the surface more easily and keep to the wiping pattern.
Try not to place your hand with the cloth flat on the surface. Keep a small space between your hand and the surface as this will make it easier to collect any debris.
Some people find wearing a clean old sock on their hand is the easiest and quickest way to dust. You can then just wash or discard the sock afterwards. Make sure you choose a smooth sock so that you don’t accidentally scratch the surfaces with it.
If you’re using cleaning spray or polish, hold it in one hand while you dust with the other, or have a set place to put the spray so you can easily find it.
A tip for cleaning the inside of the microwave is to put a bowl of soapy water inside and turn on the microwave for a couple of minutes. Take the bowl out and you’ll find that when you wipe down the inside of the microwave, any dirt will come off more easily.
When cleaning the outside, use a systematic, methodical approach. For example:
Clean from top left to bottom left
Move back to the top left and move right one hand space
Clean down top to bottom
Move back to the top and move over another hand space
Wipe down again
You may prefer to use cleaning wipes, which you could keep throughout your home. You could also consider using natural cleaning products, as there’s less potential for damage from the chemicals if there are any spillages.
Organise your cleaning cupboard, and avoid keeping cleaning products near anywhere hot, such as your oven.
There are apps that you can use on your phone to get information about the products you wish to use. They can read the text or scan the barcode to tell you about the product - Seeing AI for example.
If you have any remaining vision:
Consider the bottles, sprays and cleaning cloths you use in terms of colour and contrast. For example, using a yellow cleaning cloth on a black kitchen work top offers a better contrast than a dark blue one.
