When your home is messy and unorganized the thought of getting it together can be a lot to comprehend. Once you have a clean and organized home though, you can do a few small and simple things to maintain a clean home. Once you get your home in order, if you do these things then you can ensure that you will be able to maintain a clean home.
Small Things-To-Do To Keep A Clean Home
Start by making the bed. This is a small task which takes no more than ten minutes every morning. It will make your whole room feel tidier. Making your bed will also set the tone for how you want your day to begin. If you have a few different sheets on your bed as well as a lot of pillows, if you cut back – this will also take you less time.
Make it a habit of cleaning as you go. If a mess is made, whether that be from doing laundry, making dinner, reorganizing a bookshelf – really anything make sure it’s cleaned up before you leave. This may seem like a lot at first but after a while it will become second nature. If you walk away from a mess, chances are it won’t get cleaned.
Set aside 15 minutes a day to clean. This may not seem like a lot of time, but after a week of this, you will see a difference. If you start with a bathroom or kitchen these are smaller areas which will take fewer days to finish, and places you should always keep clean and tidy. Then tackle the rest of your home. If you do this along with not leaving a mess behind, your home will stay clean how you left it.
Keep a box for items you don’t use. This serves as a great dropbox when you are cleaning to dump items that you can trash or donate. This can include old clothes, toys, books, anything that doesn’t have a place. You should keep it labelled on the last time the bag was taken out and make a reminder to donate or trash it after a week or month. This box shouldn’t pile up, this idea is to get rid of clutter to keep your home clean. Not keep it around.
