The vast majority of us is not very fond of doing the chores and cleaning the house. If it looks like too much work, you could surely pay someone else to do it on a regular basis, but it is important to look at it from a different perspective.
Let’s say you’re cleaning your house once a week. First of all, you’re most likely not doing it thoroughly enough to make it 100% clean. If you do it less than once a week, then you will have other problems apart from just keeping it clean. It is important to set a date and clean it all the way from top to bottom – every corner, every table, every shelf, and, most importantly, every object.
People tend to remove objects from the shelves and put them back right after cleaning the shelves, without wiping each object from all sides. After you’ve done a thorough cleaning, you would certainly like that it lasts for more than one day. Although it depends on the time since the last cleaning and the size of the house, you should apply some of the tips we will give you today in order to keep the house after cleaning the way it is.
The key is to get into a daily routine that will become a part of your everyday life. You will no longer need a schedule or a couple of hours each weekend to do all of it at once because you’ll devote a portion of that time each day to cleaning.
The first thing you should do before even exiting your bedroom is making your bed. This will only take you up to a minute, and even though you might not complete the task perfectly, your bed will welcome you, ready for you to jump back in it. It will also look neat in case you get an unexpected visit from your friends or family.
The next thing everyone does (or at least should do) is wash their teeth, and possibly take a shower. Leaving the sink and the bathtub the way they are without washing faucets and drains would leave stains after a few days or weeks. These stains are caused simply by water, soap, or shampoo, and you can easily remove them within just a few seconds before leaving the bathroom.
Change Your Habits in the Kitchen
How many times have you finished your dinner and realized that there is a huge pile of dishes from all the previous meals stacked up in the sink? All you had to do is clean each piece after finishing a meal and put it in the dishwasher.
In order to be able to perform the previous task, you would have to empty your dishwasher first thing in the morning. This does take more time than making your bed, but taking 2-3 minutes out of your day is nothing compared to the time you’ll save at the end of the day when all you have to do is press the button and turn the machine on.
There might be a few small steps to follow throughout the day, but you get the idea – do short and quick cleanups several times a day in order to save hours during the weekends, but also to keep your house clean 24/7 without the need to perform super cleaning sessions or spend money to pay someone do it for you.
