Some people wait for their home to get messy before they clean it, while some do not let their house get messy in the first place. Are these people who achieve spotless homes a special lot of superhumans blessed with the power to effortlessly keep their home clean every minute of the day?
How to Keep Your Home Clean Every Minute Of The Day
Well, no. They are not superhumans. They simply happen to understand the right way of cleaning. You can also acquire the same skills and keep your home clutter-free, germ-free, and spotless all the time. Scroll down to know-how.
- Keep everything ONLY where it belongs
Your home will appear messy only if you allow it to appear messy. If you keep putting all your belongings in their right place immediately after use, no clutter will ever accumulate to bother you.
Put your towel to dry immediately after taking a bath. Arrange your makeup on the dresser after getting ready. Clean up your study table once you are done with your work. Do not leave the dishes in the sink to clean them tomorrow. Throw the waste into the dustbin immediately after peeling the potatoes.
Procrastinating a single task will turn into a bigger mess. Keep cleaning, so no mess ever accumulates.
- Make a schedule for deep cleaning
Everything in your home – your refrigerator, pantry, dresser, wardrobe, cabinets, kids’ bedroom, work table, home library, etc., requires deep cleaning once in a while. Prepare a deep cleaning schedule for these humongous tasks.
If these notorious areas are already a mess, create a cleaning schedule based on priority. For instance, if you always spend 10 minutes in your pantry looking for penne pasta, get on the pantry first, or if you always run late to work because you couldn’t find your stockings, dress, or watch, clean your wardrobe first.
Once you clean all these areas, make sure you don’t let them get too cluttered again. Create weekly and monthly cleaning routines for deep cleaning of these areas.
- Keep cleaning as you cook
Imagine you are cooking in your kitchen, and your friend walks in on a sink full of dirty dishes, ketchup dripping off the counter, and a dozen canisters are strewn around. What could be more embarrassing than that?
Cooking creates a lot of mess. But there is a way out. Keep cleaning your kitchen while you cook. Keep dumping empty packages and vegetable peels as you go.
While your cake bakes in the oven, place all the jars in their designated places.
This is how professionals cook, and they’ve probably got more going on in the kitchen than you.
- Inspect the room when you leave
Whenever you leave a room, inspect it closely. If you spot clutter, grab it as you go. Maybe your coffee mug is still idling on the bedside table; take it along as you go to your kitchen. Carry your kid’s shoes to their room when you leave the entryway.
- Make power cleaning your mantra
Take 15 minutes from your routine for power cleaning. Set the timer to 15 minutes and tackle a problematic area each day, like your bathroom shelves, shoe rack, foyer, or balcony. Involve your family to make it easier for you. If you make power cleaning your habit, you will never have to deal with clutter in your home.
- Switch to advanced cleaning tools
You choose to buy the latest when it comes to phones, jewelry, and or home appliances. Why stick to the old cleaning tools? Using old cleaning tools eats up a lot of time and makes cleaning a drag.
The markets are already flooding with technologically advanced cleaning tools. These tools cut down the labor and give you a clean home in half the time you usually spend cleaning. Replace your regular mop with a spin mop, handheld vacuum with robotic vacuum, etc.,
