Have your family members and guests take their shoes off at the door or have a place when they walk in where they can put them. This will help your house stay cleaner so it doesn’t track dirt everywhere inside.
Use your dishwasher to clean things rather than doing it all yourself. You can put vacuum filters in your dishwasher, plastic toys, hair brushes, and more.
Instead of having all of your cleaning supplies in one place, put them into each room where you do your cleaning. This will make you more likely to clean and you’ll have what you need, where you need it, when you need it.
Move around a circle in your home as you clean. Instead of jumping back and forth between rooms and areas, just start at one spot and keep working your way around until you get it all done.
Use an orphan sock to clean your blinds. The fibers in your sock will pick up all the dust and grime from your blinds and it will help you get in between each blind easily.
Invest in some quality cleaning products. Don’t just buy products because they are cheap. The better products you use, the cleaner your house will be and longer it will stay that way.
Always put dirty dishes in the dishwasher, run it when it’s full, and then empty it right away. Staying on top of your dishes is important and won’t make your sink full or smell bad.
Use lemons in your garbage disposal for a quick cleaning and to make it smell a lot better. When you grind up the lemon it will do all the work for you! Use a toothbrush for a good scrub while the disposal isn’t running.
Sponges can be good cleaning tools but they can carry lots of bacteria over time. Zap your sponge in the microwave for 2 minutes to refreshen it, or toss it once it falls apart or starts to smell bad.
While your kids are having fun in the bathtub getting clean, do some quick cleaning your self. They can be distracted while you scrub the toilet, wipe the countertops, or clean the mirrors quickly.
