Life gets busy and interesting that having to keep up with a clean home is not always easy or fun. Although there are a select few people who enjoy and live for cleaning, the rest of us would rather spend our time on the fun aspects of life. It is also not easy to ignore a dirty and cluttered home because it makes it difficult to be productive. And I personally just cannot think straight when my home is not clean.
You could always just hire someone to come in a clean your house a couple of times a week, however that is yet another expense that can be avoided. Rather save the money you would use on cleaning services and implement these easy cleaning hacks to keep your home fresh while leaving you with enough time to enjoy life.
1. Make Your Bed Every Morning
Since your bed is central to your bedroom, a quick and easy hack is to make up your bed every morning to make your bedroom (and the rest of the house) feel cleaner. In addition, by doing this simple task you will probably feel motivated to continue with the cleaning process and tidy up the rest of the house. If not, in the very least you will feel like you have achieved something in the early hours and is a great start to your day.
2. Start Daily Quick Cleaning
One easy way to avoid the build up of dirt in your house is to do some daily cleaning. However, no one has the time to “spring” clean daily, so make it a habit to quickly clean the high traffic rooms of your home daily. These include the kitchen, bathroom and living room. You can do this by taking about about 30 minutes to tidy up and clean these rooms. This hack will have your home feeling cleaner since you would have tackled the areas that are prone to getting dirtier faster. Check out how you can keep your home clean in just 30 minutes a day.
3. Play Music
Since cleaning may not be enjoyable for you, playing your favourite music is a good way to motivate yourself for the task. Playing music will motivate you and will let you work more efficiently. Plus it will make it seem as if the task is getting done quicker.
4. Deep Clean Routinely
Although deep cleaning is usually referred to as “spring cleaning”, this does not mean that it should only be reserved for the spring time. Developing the habit of spring cleaning weekly, bi-weekly or even monthly (depending on how busy you are), will let cover your bases often without letting dirt build up in your home over extended periods.
Declutter often. Getting rid of clutter on a regular basis will make things easier for yourself in the long run. It is also easier to clean a minimalistic home.
Take Home: Is It Possible to Maintain a Clean Home on a Busy Schedule?
Yes. All it takes is staying on top of it and doing a little every little. Easy ways to ensure that you home stays clean are to make your bed every morning, allocate a few minutes to tidy up your home and deep clean every so often. You can make cleaning easier by listening to music while doing it and keeping an organised decluttered home.
