Do you have friends or family members that always look like they have clean homes no matter when you stop by?
You think to yourself they have kids or animals but their home always looks spotless! How do they do it?
Over the years I have learned some tricks that I do every day to keep my home looking clean. People with clean homes take a few extra minutes each day and they are less overwhelmed by making these a habit.
10 Things People With Clean Homes Do Every Day
They Make Their Bed Every Day
I’ve talked about this one so many times and it works! Before you leave your room in the morning make your bed. It makes the room look put together and that productive feeling you get first thing in the morning will carry you through the day.
Create Morning and Night Routines
These take about 15 mins each day and the more routines you have in place the more organized you will stay. You can check out my morning routine and night time routines to see exactly how my days look for inspiration.
Clean As They Go
Clean as you move throughout your day. If you are cooking try to clean up the dishes as you cook makes it easier and less overwhelming later.
Plan and Make Lists
By planning ahead and making lists of things you need to pick up or do will give you a jump start on the following day. Anything to keep your future chores less complicated.
Go To Bed With A Picked Up House
Clean homes do not mean it has to be spotless just look organized. By going to bed with a picked up home will set your next day off on the right foot with a clean home.
Use a Catch-All Bin
Pick up all the kids toys or anything laying around the home that needs to be put away in one place like a catch-all bin. This bin can be sorted out later or tucked away quickly when you have that unexpected guest show up.
Do A Load Of Laundry Every Day
Don’t have dirty laundry piling up, by doing one load a day your laundry chore will be less overwhelming and more manageable.
Tackle Clutter 15 Mins A Day
Set and timer and go clear those clutter spots. You know where you dropped the mail pile off, kids school papers or your catch-all bin. This keeps your home looking cleaner with less clutter.
Wipe The Bathrooms Daily
By just simply wiping down sinks and toilets every day this is a huge time saver in the long run. Especially if you have kids, less scrubbing hardened toothpaste off the sinks when you have to deep clean. Anyone with little boys knows the toilet struggles here. Beleive me wiping it down daily will save you tons of worry if you have someone stop by unannounced.
They Do Not Wait
Do it now. If you get a package delivered open it and put things where they have to go. The longer you wait the more can pile up and become overwhelming.
