4 Tips to Help You Get Your Cleaning Chores Done in Record Time!
If you have a busy and hectic life, which most of us have, it is easy to get behind on your household cleaning chores. The first indication that your cleaning chores are unmanageable is when you look around, feel overwhelmed and don’t know where to begin. You can then run the risk of starting many things and not finishing any of them, which can make matters much worse. You need to start and finish your cleaning chores, preferably room by room.
Here are 4 tips to help you get your cleaning chores done in record time and end up with a sparkling clean well organized home.
Tip 1: Clear Space
Go through the house and put things away. Clear the clutter, hang up the clothes, pick up magazines, put dirty clothes in the laundry basket and clear away knick knacks and similar type items. It is much easier to clean when you aren’t dodging all kinds of things that are lying around or trying to put them away as you clean.
Tip 2: Box Things You No Longer Want
If the things you have sitting out on tables and shelves in your home are no longer pleasing you, such as silk flowers, figurines or trinkets, box them up and sell them or take them to goodwill. Your home is for your comfort and enjoyment and if the “thing” is in the way and has turned into an annoyance it is probably time to get rid of it.
Tip 3: Clean Top to Bottom
It is amazing how quickly you can clean your home after you remove the clutter. Just always remember to clean top to bottom. If you clean lower surfaces before you clean the top areas gravity can quickly undo your work. Dust and dirt will fall down and dirty the areas you already cleaned.
Tip 4: Finish Cleaning a Room before You Move On to the Next
You will feel a sense of accomplishment and can see your progress if you clean one room before you move on to the next. When you jump around and clean a bit here and there you will have a lot started and actually accomplish very little. You can easily become overwhelmed and run out of energy before you make a difference in the condition of your home.
