Keeping the house clean isn’t the easiest thing to do. Here are some tips that will help you keep your house clean!
- Put things away after using them. Once you are done with something put it away. Keeping something out after you are done with it, will slowly pile up. You’ll say I’ll put it away later but that doesn’t always happen. Making sure to put things away when you are done with them will keep things from piling up which will help a lot when it comes time to clean.
- Do one room at a time. When you are cleaning, focus on one room. Do the bedroom and once complete move on to the bathroom and then the living room and so on. Focusing on one room at a time helps cleaning not feel overwhelming. It’s easier to focus on one room then trying to focus on the whole house.
- Stick to a schedule. Make a weekly schedule that has one room or one cleaning activity a day that you focus on. Have one day that is specifically for cleaning the kitchen another that is for cleaning the living room, etc. Have little chores you do everyday as well. For example, making your bed every morning and cleaning up while you cook. This will help when you are cleaning certain rooms to make it not so overwhelmingly dirty.
- Power cleaning! Believe in a power cleaning! No one likes to go to bed with a dirty house that they will have to clean the next day. Take 10-15 minutes each night to power clean a place in the house. For example, the dishes in the sink, the entryway/mudroom filled with shoes. Doing a power clean will help you sleep and not worry that you’ll have to clean the next morning.
Hopefully these tips will help you keep you house clean and make cleaning a little easier! Have a great week!
