Keeping an orderly home requires time and effort. It is generally less overwhelming to spend regular short amount of cleaning time than to let the house get dirty and clean it all at once. Some tips help keep the house tidy at all times without having to exert tons of cleaning effort.
Become a minimalist and get rid of unnecessary things around the house. Less material means less clutter. Get rid of old or unfavorable clothing. Having a ton of clothing makes it tempting to put on washing clothes as possible but unsightly stacks construction and doing several loads at once can seem overwhelming. People who are not cooks probably do not need several of the same size pots, so get rid of extras to avoid the temptation of procrastinating dishes. Remove unnecessary duplicate items, leaving fewer items to make mess with.
Vacuuming carpets should obviously be a part of regular cleaning, but Martha Stewart points out that gaps can be an effective way to clean almost any surface. Do not be shy about vacuuming hard floors instead of sweeping. Use a small vacuum cleaner accessory to quickly clean the dust from the shelves, furniture pet hair and spider webs from the walls.
Get a plastic bowl for dishes to soak or fill half the sink with hot soapy water in the sinks with two sinks. Martha Stewart points out that a dish bowl saves water and energy. It also makes washing faster because the dishes have a chance to enjoy and get soapy all at once.
Clean up any mold problem immediately because mold spores spread quickly through the air and water. A small patch of mold on the bathroom wall today could be several patches of mold in different places around the house next week. The Environmental Protection Agency also warns that mold causes health problems, such as asthma and allergies. Use a cleaner specifically designed to kill mold spores and be sure to ventilate the area and wear protective gloves and goggles during cleaning.
Many cleaning tasks use the sources of the same; For example, a glass cleaner, a multipurpose cleaner, a sponge, an abrasive brush, a towel and a rubber glove can handle more messes. Instead of running around the house between tasks to grab more cleaning supplies, they put the most used cleaning products in a bucket and carry them from one room to another, as suggested by Martha Stewart. Alternatively, carry cleaning products in the pockets of the apron or in a nice basket.
