Everyone wants to have a spotless home yet no one wants to spend all of their free time cleaning, right? I used to wonder how to achieve a clean home without actually having to set a few hours every single day for all my chores. I am a bit of a clean freak so my standards are pretty high.
Lately, I came to one conclusion – you can have a spotless home at all times without having to clean every single day. In fact, it’s quite simple which is why I want to share my secrets with you – so that you can enjoy a spotless home at all times as well!
What Are My Secrets?
– I clean-up messes immediately
Something very important you need to do is always clean up any messes the second they happen. For example, if you spill orange juice on your wooden floors – clean it up immediately. Waiting will make everything worse and it will be a lot harder to clean it up.
Another example I want to give you is cooking. Every time you cook, you make a huge mess in the kitchen – you spill sauce, crumbs are all over the kitchen counter, there is grease on the backsplash. I always clean everything in my kitchen once I am done cooking – so the impurities don’t build up.
– Don’t let dirty dishes pile up in your sink
Leaving dirty dishes in the sink after you are finished eating is so much easier than washing them, right? You just want to sit on the couch and watch a movie. This, however, is a huge mistake people make.
Make sure you never pile up dirty dishes in your sink. If you have a dishwasher – great! If you don’t – quickly wash them with hot soapy water!
– Do one cleaning chore a day!
This has helped me so much when it comes to maintaining my home spotless at all times. Just think about it – I vacuum and mop my floors every Sunday. It doesn’t take me more than 25 minutes. I dust all surfaces every Saturday – again, it doesn’t take me more than 15 minutes.
If you do one chore a day then you won’t feel overwhelmed by the amount of cleaning you need to do, and your home will always be clean. Also, you won’t be wasting too much time!
– Have “house slippers”
Buy yourself some slippers – the fuzzy ones and wear them whenever you are home. Walking with shoes inside of your home will make your home so dirty that you will need to vacuum and mop every hour. Just imagine all the impurities that you pick up when walking on the outside. Then, once you come home, all of those impurities are being spread everywhere – in your kitchen, bathroom, bedroom, living room, etc.
This is why you need to take your shoes off once you come home – and replace them with your “house” slippers!
