5 Simple Ways to keep your Home Clean

Adulting is not easy. Work commitments, personal commitments, and many other responsibilities do not leave us much room to get vital things like housework done regularly. So, if you do not hire regular home cleaning services, how can you incorporate some chores into your routine without burning out? Check out our pointers below and transform your home!

1) Prioritise

There will always be an endless amount of housework for you to do to maintain a clean home, and you can’t possibly complete everything every day. So instead, pick out some essential tasks that you’d need completed daily and start off with those before moving on to less important tasks. This way, the necessities get done even if you decide to stop after the first few chores.

2) Keep supplies close

Cleaning your home will seem like a hassle when you’re busy. However, the last thing you will want to do is make an extra “trip” to wherever your cleaning supplies are stored. Having your cleaning supplies conveniently located next to places where you’ll use them would make cleaning seem less of a hassle and seem like something completely doable. For example, store your sink cleaner right next to your sink. That way, you can clean it up straight after you’re done with the dishes, or brushing your teeth, in a matter of a few short minutes.

3) Set Aside 15 minutes for a daily cleanup 

Ready. Set. Go. 

Set a timer on your phone and get going. Basic home cleaning can be done in as short a time as 15 minutes. Start with the things that make the biggest mess contributors in your home, and work your way down. For example, start with the kitchen sink or sweeping, then work your way down to wiping the mirrors.

4) Get your family involved

Things get done quicker when everyone is involved. Get your family together and tackle various rooms. This helps more work get done within your stipulated time. What’s best about this tip? It can be a fun activity that your family can bond over and have some fun; Making housework seem like less of a “chore”.

5) Clean as you go

It sounds simple, but not everyone does it. Putting things away after you’re done with them doesn’t take too much time out of your day. For example, after you’re done watching TV, leave the remote back in the drawer, or put the cup back into the sink after you’re done with your drink. This helps prevent clutter and make your home appear neater without even doing “housework”.
