People who enjoy beautiful, clean homes all the time have certain habits, and they approach cleaning in such a manner that they do not have to spend a lot of time with a full fledge process. If you are interested in getting some ideas on keeping your home clean without engaging in time-consuming cleaning activities, here are some great tips to get you started.
Always have a place for your clothes. That means that the moment you take your clothes off, you should just fold them and put them away, or place them in the laundry basket or directly in the washing machine if you are the type who prefers washing laundry in small amounts. This way, there will never be clothes hanging on chairs, sofas, or thrown on the floor. Suddenly, your home will look much tidier.
Wipe used surfaces as soon as you are done. It does not matter what you do. Are you finished with brushing your teeth? Quickly clean the sink and the faucet. Have you just prepared a meal using the kitchen counter for cutting the vegetables? Wipe immediately. Do the same with the stove top once you are done with cooking. You cannot imagine how much time you will be able to save in this manner.
Be a Spartan in everything you buy and use. Do not think of this small piece of advice as a fun killer, because it’s not. If you own too many items from a certain category, starting with clothing and shoes and ending with plates and blankets, you will soon begin struggling with a very crowded home that is tough to keep clean.
Do not let dirty dishes become a mountain of despair in your kitchen sink. Once you are done with your meal, wash them right away or place them in the dishwasher and let the machine do the work. Food spills and organic remains that stuck to plates and pots can be difficult to remove after a while, and this is the number one reason why so many people hate doing the dishes.
Create a vacuuming schedule that fits your lifestyle. However, my advice is to get an electric broom beside your full fledge vacuum cleaner. This will help you with cleaning any spills, accidental messes, and other unfortunate events, without having to drag the vacuum cleaner out of the closet. I find this particular cleaning device to be so much better than other means of cleaning because it lets you vacuum every day, while consuming only a few minutes of your time.
Don’t forget about smells. A bad smelling home will not feel clean, no matter how religious you are about everything else. Use nice smelling cleaning products. I suggest going organic so that you do not load the air with chemicals that will end up in your lungs.
