Cabins are usually smaller houses with a limited floor plan. However, it’s surprising how quickly such a small space can become dirty.
In fact, new home organization statistics show that 54% of Americans said they felt overwhelmed with cutter filling up their homes.
If you want to enjoy more time outside the cabin than in it, knowing the best tips for keeping it clean is essential.
So read on to have some ideas on how to keep your cabin clean.
Get Rid of Sink Odors With Lemon
Depending on where your cabin is located, you may cook at home regularly. This can cause your kitchen sink to smell.
Simply run a lemon peel through the attached garbage disposal to prevent your kitchen sink from emitting odors.
The lemon juice will remove odors and clean the parts of the sink you can’t reach.
Once the lemon is in the sink, rinse it off with cold water.
Cut Through Grease on Kitchen Appliances
You likely have a few grease stains with all of the cooking you’re doing in the kitchen.
Your microwave, in particular, make it look like a battle zone.
A simple method of cleaning is to heat a bowl of water with a cut lemon in it. Also, add a little vinegar.
Then let the bowl steam in the microwave. After that, you just need to wipe off the grease and other dirt.
Polish Your Countertops
Your cabin probably has countertops that could be seriously damaged if cleaned with vinegar.
It’s better to use something like granite polish.
The polish picks up dirt, cuts through it, and leaves a shiny and bright surface.
It’s a great way to clean and enhance your countertops instead of making them look dull.

Replace Shower Curtains With Glass
If your cabin is used for vacation, you should replace the shower curtain with a glass. Over time, the shower curtain can get moldy.
If you are not there to clean the curtain, you may come back and find a lot of mold on it.
Glass shower doors are easier to maintain.
All you have to do is wipe them down before you leave the cabin for the season.
Dust Every Crevice
Inside a cabin, there are many hiding places where dust can accumulate.
For example, the top of beams and the right corners where beams are connected and sloping areas can all be challenging to clean.
You may need a special tool to reach them. However, cleaning these areas is crucial.
Removing cobwebs, dust and other allergens from these areas can make living in your cabin much better.
Start with the crevices first. Then clean the floors so they don’t get dirty again.
Clean Out Your Wood Stove
Many cabins have wood stoves. If your cabin is one of them, you need to take care of it.
Clean your stove regularly and have the chimney cleaned by a chimney sweep. Your chimney should be thoroughly cleaned at least once a year.
To extend the life of your stove, it’s also vital to use the right type of wood. Hardwood is the best wood because it lasts longer. You will get better combustion with less debris.
Hang Mosquito Nets on the Porch
To keep using your cabin at night, you should consider installing mosquito nets on your porch or deck.
They’re effective at keeping mosquitoes from entering your home and porch area.
You’ll need to take them down every now and then to clean them.
Simply spraying them with a garden hose will do the trick. By maintaining your mosquito nets, you can enjoy your cabin’s porch at all hours of the night and day.
Use a Robot Vacuum
One of the best ways to keep your cabin tidy is to use a robot vacuum.
They’re great at picking up messes on hardwood floors or low-pile carpets. The best thing about them is they do all the cleaning for you.
While you’re out enjoying the outdoors, the robot is keeping your cabin clean. You can come back to wholly cleaned floors and a healthy cabin.
