3 Simple Tips for Always Keeping your Home Clean


You’ve got a busy life, so it’s not always easy to keep the house looking spotless. Ideally, you’d be able to regularly devote an entire day to cleaning, but that’s not always an option. On those rare occasions when you actually do have some free time, the last things you want to think about are dusting, scrubbing, and sweeping.

It may be easier to look at your home in terms of maintaining rather than occasionally playing an intense game of catch up. This organized and consistent approach to cleaning will help to eliminate stress and make your days off that much more enjoyable.

  • Divide Up Tasks

Why should you have to do all the work? If there are other hands in your household, put them to use.  Everyone should have his/her own daily tasks involved with keeping the home looking nice. For children, that chore may be as simple as keeping play areas clear by picking up toys when they’re finished playing.

  • Assign Rooms to Days

Who says you always have to tackle the whole house at once? There are no rules to cleaning. Assign each room to a day. On Mondays, you straighten up and dust the living room. Then, Tuesdays call for a nice break. On Wednesdays, you work on the bathrooms.  (The week goes on in this fashion.)

  • Only Display the Essentials

Clutter alone can add a great deal of stress to your life. Help yourself by properly tucking away any unnecessary items.  This goes along with the “out of sight, out of mind” mentality. Things that are seldom used should be kept in a storage facility, making them one less issue for you to worry about. (Click here to learn more about clutter’s negative effects on your health.)
