Isn’t it great getting into a bed that has freshly cleaned sheets? Imagine you could have that feeling every day. That’s what it feels like to have a clean home. You won’t have to wake up on the weekend worries about doing chores. Instead, you can focus on things you actually want to do – like eat breakfast.
No matter the size of your home, keeping a clean space is important. The best way to keep your home clean is to keep an easy cleaning routine so that things never get too far out of hand.
Do your best to clean as you go
Of course, it is easier to leave dishes in the sink than to immediately wash them or put them in the dishwasher. It’s also easier to toss off your coat when you walk in the door instead of properly hanging it up. However, those small behaviors can add up to create a messy home. Honestly, if you clean up right away, the mess will never accumulate and you won’t feel the stress of it later.
Fold up your throw blankets
We all have a few blankets that we use for our binge-TV watching on the couch. For your living room to immediately look tidier, fold up those blankets when not in use and place them on the couch if you do not have another place to store them. This takes little effort but makes your living room look a million times better.
Contain your clutter
Aesthetically pleasing storage bins are a great way to contain clutter in an easy way. It’s best to keep a few of these around in areas where clutter seems to quickly accumulate. It will make your home look more minimalist and clean without a lot of effort on your part.
It’s always best to avoid clutter in open spaces such as your kitchen and bathroom. These areas can quickly become clutter magnets. Work to find storage for these items or just simply throw them away.
Have a few products for your daily cleaning routine
Use biodegradable wipes to wipe down your home on a regular basis. This makes full cleaning days much easier. In the bathroom, wipe down the sink and counter-top at least once or twice a week and spray down your shower with a shower mist daily. These tasks take 30 seconds and can save you 30 minutes.
Do a 15 minute nightly clean up
A daily cleaning habit can save you a lot of time in the long run. This can take as little as 10-15 minutes each day. Here are a few things to do during your nightly clean-up.
- Load and start your dishwasher
- Start a load of laundry
- Wipe down your kitchen counters
- Sweep the kitchen
You don’t have to clean every room every day. Just do what you can and keep it simple. Keeping a consistent cleaning practice will make a deep cleaning much easier when the time comes.
