The best way to keep your home clean and neat is not by buying the most expensive or aggressive cleaning products your find in the local store, but by adopting a few practical habits. Make some minor changes in your daily life and you will easily keep your house in a perfect condition not only once or twice a week but all the time.
Wash those dishes
Don’t leave your dirty dishes in the sink for too long. Wash them as soon as you finish with your dinner or lunch. If you are too tired or pressed for time to do that, you can at least put them in the washing machine. Procrastinating on washing your dishes will only make them stickier and harder to clean. Also, by piling them in the sink you risk breaking or chipping them.
Put your clothes away
Do you a have a chair on which you pile up clothes that you like to keep in handy or do you simply chuck them on the floor? If you have answered with a “yes” to either one of these questions, try to imagine your room without all the pieces of clothing that you have scattered around it. Certainly, it will look much neater and cozier. Try to make a habit of putting your clothes away every day and you will see that the next time you start cleaning your home you will not need to spend so much time picking t-shirts off the floor, for instance.
Don’t let grime to take over your kitchen
If the kitchen is one of your least favorite spots to clean, you are not alone. The surfaces and the home appliances in that particular room tend to get greasy and grimy which results in a true cleaning nightmare. But there is an easy way to beat the system – do a quick clean-up every time you finish cooking. For example, wipe your oven as soon as you take the pie out of it. Similar to your dishes, the more you postpone cleaning the main cooking areas in the kitchen, the grimier they will get.
Clean at least once every week
Sanitize your house every single week or even more frequently. By vacuuming and dusting on such a regular basis your weekly cleaning routine will take less of your time and it will be easier to complete. In addition to that, you home will always be neat and tidy. This means that you will no longer suffer a mini heart attack every time some of your friends decides to drop by your place unexpectedly.
Keep your bed tidy
Do not use your bed as a storage area by piling up clothes, blankets or pillow on it. Use it only for sleeping and resting. In that way, you will not only keep your room organized but you will also enjoy sleep better at night.
Adopt any or all of these habits and we guarantee that you will:
- Spend less time cleaning
- Keep your home well-organized all the time
- Live in a healthy and clutter-free environment
