Your home. Your favorite place on earth. The place you can relax and be yourself. The place that…is always messy. If you’re anything like the average person, keeping your house clean is a seemingly impossible task. With the hustle and bustle of everyday life, our homes often are put on the back burner. The longer we put it off, the bigger the task leaving us overwhelmed and ready to give up on ever having a clean house.
Don’t give up yet! Here are our tips for keeping your house clean and keeping it that way!
1 – Make a Schedule
This is the most important thing when it comes to keeping your house clean. Remember that your home can’t be cleaned in one day. You live a life that has you headed in different directions constantly and adding cleaning the whole house to the list will be something you can’t accomplish. Make a list of the small things your family needs to do morning and night to keep your house straight. Also make a weekly schedule of bigger task that need to be done each day.
2 – Get Everyone Involved
In families, everyone needs to do their part to keep the house clean for all of you. Get the kids involved. It will really help them if you have the schedule from tip number 1 for them to follow. You can also assign each kid and adult a weekly chore to cut down on the amount of work for just one person!
3 – No Clutter
Don’t roll your eyes yet! This is easier than you think. Clutter is basically just stuff that is not put away. It will take you a lot less time in the long run if you just put things away as you go, not allowing it to gather in specific areas of your home. (This goes for kids and husbands too!)
4 – Do The Dishes
This seems like a small task, but a clean sing makes everyone feel better. A pile of dishes in the sink can lead to feelings of being overwhelmed. Go to bed every night with a clean sink you you will wake up feeling so much better!
5 – Get Help
Many times the reality of keeping your house not only straight, but clean, is just not there. In this case, it may be time to reach out for help and hire a cleaning service to carry the load. There is nothing that beats the feeling of coming into a house that has just been cleaned.
