The rainy season brings with it a refreshing change in the atmosphere, but it also ushers in its own set of cleaning challenges. While we celebrate the low temperatures and the cool breeze, what we certainly do not welcome is the constant absence of sunlight, the general air of dampness and all the resulting problem.
The constant battle against muddy footprints, dampness, and potential mould growth can be overwhelming. Not to forget clothes that never seem to dry or never seem to smell fresh. The lack of sunlight means our homes can end up smelling musty as well. Keeping your home, clothes and everything else fresh and free of dampness can be a massive challenge.
In this blog post, we'll explore eight practical tips that encompass the use of various cleaning products to help you maintain a clean and hygienic home throughout the rainy season.
Regular Vacuuming and Mopping: The dampness of the rainy season can lead to an increase in dust and dirt accumulation. Regular vacuuming and mopping become essential to keep your floors clean and germ-free. You can use a vacuum cleaner with strong suction power to effectively remove dirt, dust, and allergens from carpets and rugs. Don’t forget to mop your floors with a quality floor cleaner that will not only leave your floors sparkly but also get rid of lingering germs and bacteria. One of the important things you can do post-mopping is to switch on your fans and leave the windows open for some ventilation and ensure your floors completely dry up.
Regular Mopping Of Floors Is A Must: Your floors bear the brunt of the rainy season, often accumulating mud, dirt, and moisture. A quality floor cleaner tailored for different surfaces can be a game-changer. Choose one that is effective in removing stains and dirt while being gentle on your flooring. Osh Floor Cleaner is formulated with 99% natural and plant-derived ingredients. It is safe to use across cement, marble and tiles. It is powered by the goodness of basil, neem and turmeric oil, which combine to not only help keep your surfaces clean but also keep insects and germs away with a strong anti-bacterial action.
Spot Clean Spills Promptly: Accidents happen, and spills are inevitable. To prevent stains and damage, tackle spills promptly, irrespective of the surface. Letting spills remain in this weather is guaranteed to fester germs and bacteria. Whether it’s your floors or kitchen surfaces, use a mild cleaner plus a soft cloth immediately. This quick action will save you from dealing with stubborn stains later.
Keep Your Bathrooms Clean & Germ-Free: Bathrooms are prone to increased humidity during the rainy season, making them a breeding ground for mould and mildew. The quality of water during the rainy months can often be below par which means stains take longer to clear and limescale can form. A specialized toilet cleaner with antibacterial properties can help keep your bathroom germ-free. Regularly clean and disinfect your toilet bowl with a toilet cleaner to prevent the growth of harmful microorganisms.

Sort Your Clothes Carefully: During the rainy season, it's important to sort your laundry carefully. Keep wet or heavily soiled items separate from the rest to avoid cross-contamination. Sorting also ensures that your clothes are treated with the right care during washing.
Ensure You Choose A Laundry Detergent That effectively Tackles Dirt & Germs: Rainy weather can make it challenging to dry your laundry properly. However, using a high-quality laundry detergent can ensure that your clothes are not only clean but also fresh-smelling. Choose a detergent that is effective in removing stains and odours, and follow the recommended dosage for optimal results. Osh Laundry Detergent is formulated to effectively remove 15 stains.

Embrace the Comfort of Fabric Conditioner: Dampness and humidity can affect the freshness of your clothes, towels, and linens. Incorporating a fabric conditioner into your laundry routine can help maintain the softness and fragrance of your textiles.

Regularly Empty and Clean Trash Bins: With the increased moisture and humidity, trash bins can become breeding grounds for bacteria and unpleasant odours. Empty and clean your trash bins regularly using a disinfectant cleaner. This simple step can help prevent the spread of germs and keep your living spaces smelling fresh.
Consistency is key when it comes to rainy season cleaning. The rainy season may present its own cleaning challenges, but with the right strategies and the use of effective cleaning products, you can keep your home impeccably clean and hygienic.
