I’m a cleaning pro – the five things I’d NEVER have in my home and why velvet sofas are NEVER a good idea | The Sun

IT’S pretty obvious that cleaning is a part of our daily lives. Eventually dust does pile up, limescale is formed and spillages happen.

But there are some home designs that make cleaning even harder. 

A cleaning fan has revealed the five things she would never get in her house since becoming a cleaner. 

The cleaner who goes by @leaderscleaning shared the list in a TikTok video online. 

She said: “From the cleaning point of view.”

Matt kitchen cabinets made the top of the list.

The cleaning fan said: “Matt and black matt kitchen cabinets. The moment you touch it leaves marks especially hard to clean oily stains. Looks stunning though.”

As elegant as they look matt cabinets the bruise easily, 

Scratches, fingerprints and smudges are all very clearly visible on matt cabinets so be prepared to be cleaning these everyday.

Next up a black granite sink. Owners of this sink have described them as a cleaning nightmare and it's not hard to see why.

The cleaner also says she hates velvet furniture because the only way to keep them clean is to not sit on them. 

“These are so beautiful but almost never looks neat, unless you don’t sit or touch it, leaves messy marks after every touch.”

It’s not good news if you've got corded blinds. 

The cleaner explains: “They get tangled, collect dust and mould. Very, very, very hard to clean.”

Finally glossy floor tiles. The cleaner says: “They are really prone to streaks.”
