The task of keeping your house clean can be tedious and boring. It can take up much of your
time if you have given in to bad habits that create more for you to clean up. You may not follow
through with your daily cleaning because your day became hectic. Still, it’s possible for your
home to not descend into chaos and look uninviting. You can take the first steps to a clean home by
developing good habits that you can follow instinctively and keep your home sparkling. Let’s
look at some of the things that you can do to achieve this by starting incorporating these simple tasks into your daily habits and routine.
Begin with the Basic-Make the Bed
While you don’t want to make the bed immediately after getting up, to avoid trapping moisture
that can cause dust mites to develop, it’s a great way to start your morning. It can help to set the
tone for the rest of the day. It’s a small accomplishment, but it can encourage you to get the rest
of the room and the house tidy. Making the bed leads to more productivity in terms of household
chores, and a neat and unrumpled makes the entire room look pulled together to start the day.
Making the bed doesn’t have to be a hassle; you can get it done in 5 minutes, even if you are
changing used linens.
Clean the Bathroom
Routine bathroom cleaning, involving scrubbing the tub and shower walls should be done at least
once a week. On the other hand, some parts of the bathroom need to be addressed more
frequently. The sink and toilet should be cleaned more often, even as needed since they are two
of the most germ-ridden areas of the home. A complete cleaning may not be needed and
depending on their condition, you may simply need to wipe down the seat and sides of the toilet
with a bleach wipe, and the same for the sink. Also, wipe the mirrors, take out the trash and
freshen regularly used linen every day or two. A thorough cleaning may be needed once or twice
Don’t Forget the Windows
Cleaning the inside and outside windows of your home not only helps to make your home
appealing, but it also provides certain health benefits and lengthens the lifespan of the windows.
Thorough cleanings should be done twice a year to remove built-up scum, algae and grime,
especially on exterior windows. You can use a rubber-edged squeegee or a microfiber cloth and a
bucket of warm water, with a couple of drops of dish detergent. To get rid of tough spots, use a
solution of 50% water and 50% vinegar to remove them, then rinse off with plain water. The
condition of your surroundings will determine how often you wash your windows, which can be
once every month or two, or more.
Even Doors Need Cleaning Too
Doors may seem like one of the least important things to clean in your house, but dirty doors can
impact the overall look of your house. Doors can be covered in smudges and scuff marks, but a
quick cleaning with a bucket of soapy water and cloth to remove smudges and dirt, or a magic
eraser to remove the scuffs on white doors can go a long way.
