Habits to Keep Your House Tidy

Habits to Keep Your House Tidy

Cleaning can sometimes feel like a daunting task because of the amount of things we try to get done in one day.

Creating good cleaning habits can help. Instead of dedicating an entire day to cleaning and becoming stressed out or overwhelmed, you can keep your cleaning short and sweet with these tips:


Make the Bed

It may seem like a waste of time, but it does make a big difference. Making your bed will make the room look a lot tidier. To make the process easier, you can cut down on the items on your bed. Keep the pillows (especially decorative ones) to a minimum.


Do a Load a Day

If it's just you, laundry may not be overwhelming. You may have one or two loads of laundry to do in a week.

However, if you live with a lot of people, there's sure to be a waterfall of laundry piling up after only a few days. Keep it tidy by putting a load of laundry in while you're getting ready in the morning. Before you leave, place the laundry in the dryer.

When you arrive home, the clothes will be dry and ready to put away, leaving you with less of a waterfall of clothing.


15 Minutes

Put on your timer and get started. You don’t have to clean every inch of the house . The idea here is to clean in small increments to make the task seem less daunting. Hit one room at a time or a small area you've been avoiding for a while.

It may seem pointless, but once you start cleaning in 15 minute intervals, you'll see just how big of a difference it can make.


Keep Supplies Nearby

Have a microfiber cloth and a cleaning spray nearby every major room of the house. That way, it'll keep you from starting multiple cleaning projects at the same time and allow you to focus on cleaning one room at a time.


Clean As You Go

As you move about the house, make sure you are scanning through each room and cleaning as you go. If you notice an item or two out of place, don't wait until it piles up into more!
