Maintaining a clean and tidy home can feel like quite a chore, although it really does not need to take you too much time if you follow a few simple steps. In this article we look at our ten daily habits which should help to keep your home in a clean and tidy condition:
Make Your Bed
A simple task like making the bed, can really make a look room much tidier instantly. Its also a good way to start your day as you mean to go on.
One Load of Washing Per Day
This will of course depend on the size of your household. But if you average around 7 washes per week – it’s a good idea to set a goal of always getting one load done per day. It’s all too easy to fall behind with the laundry, and then it’s an uphill battle to get back on track! Getting this done and out the way first thing in the morning is also a good routine, so it’s read to dry on your return from work.
Involve All The Family
Breaking jobs down into smaller jobs and then assigning them to different members of the family on a rota or schedule, can bet a great way to manage your weekly chores. It can also help the less tidy members of the house to naturally become tidier if they are involved in the overall cleanliness of the home!
Your 15 Minutes Daily/Nightly Clean Up
Many people find that last thing at night before you go to bed, can be a great time to get a quick clean done. There is nothing worse than waking up to a mess in the morning and making this a nightly routine can make all the difference to keep your home in tip top shape.
Don’t Leave Rooms Empty handed
Try to make a habit of looking behind you before you leave any room in the house. If there is anything you can take with you to put away or maybe dishes to put away in the dishwasher, making sure you have a quick scan before leaving any room is a great habit to get into. This is also a bit of a ‘clean as you go approach’ – and basically will really help to but down on your 15 minutes nightly clean.
This is something that may take a bit of organization and thought. But once you have your property organized and de cluttered, it will be much easier to file stuff away and keep things in a much more orderly manner.
