Unless you have hired a professional cleaner to visit your home and perform all daily chores, it is likely that undertaking all these daily tasks personally is pretty challenging simply because everyone’s schedule is crazy today between kids, work, entertaining, extracurricular activities, and just living life. Although it can be nice to have a house that is constantly shining and gleaming much compared to the June Cleaver’s home, having a home that is clean enough will do. Below are 5 tasks that keep your house clean and tidy:
1. Morning Routines
Having regular morning routines work quite well, even for individuals who have limited time to spare before sending their kids off to school and then heading to work. These morning routines involve making the bed, making sure the laundry goes into the hamper, putting your pajamas away among others. Immediately after taking coffee or whatever breakfast, ensure to put all the dirty dishes in dishwashers to be washed later after dinner in the day. Ensure that every family member in the house takes care of these particular tasks as well. Taking care of these morning routines is a trait and skill that must be learned early on in life.
2. Free up the Sinks
This applies to the sinks in both the kitchen as well as the bathroom. For example, an individual may have dropped a glob of toothpaste after brushing teeth or even have found some strands of hair into the bathroom sink. It is a lot easier to for one to mop these up while they’re still moist, rather than ignoring them all day long to scrub them off later. In kitchens, rather than piling up dishes, rinsing them off quickly and stacking them in the dishwasher is a good idea. It feels nice to come home tired and find a clean kitchen sink, compared to one that is filled with nasty dishes.
3. Cleaning Chaos
Don’t ever let the word chaos fool you in any way – it simply means giving your house a quick clean up on a daily basis, even if its five minutes. Every individual in the home participates in the cleanup including children. Everyone moves around the house taking things up and then putting them in the appropriate areas, and also takes part in the general cleaning process. Sometimes every individual can focus on a single room to make the process a beat faster. These quick sessions are capable of keeping all cleaning frustrations at bay.
4. Evening kitchen clean up
The kitchen must be thoroughly cleaned immediately after a dinner. Run the dishwasher, clean the stovetop and sink, and also sweep the floor well especially under the kitchen table. It feels nice for one to wake up to a clean kitchen and prepare the breakfast rather than one with food crumbs all over.
5. De-clutter your space
Ensure that you keep few things in any room as you can. Put different items away immediately after use so that they don’t clutter up your home. A house that is not filled with clutter is much easier to keep clean on a regular basis.
