Cleaning can seem like a daunting, unenjoyable, and overwhelming task, but it doesn't have to be. With the right mindset, tips, and products, you can turn cleaning into an activity that's satisfying and easy!
Here are some of our favourite tips to help keep your home clean and tidy:
1. Create a System
Take some time to create a personalized cleaning plan and schedule so you know exactly what to do and when it needs to be done. Split up recurring tasks, such as taking out the garbage or washing bedding, into specific days of the week. Organize similar tasks to be done together to minimize time spent running around the house. Delegate chores to be done by different people in your household and create accountability for tasks to get done. Developing your own system also helps you build consistency in your cleaning habits as opposed to only tackling tasks when it can’t be avoided anymore.
2. Take Care of Your Cleaning Tools
Do you find the quality of your vacuum, dryer, or other tools quickly deteriorating over time? Prevent this by performing proper maintenance, such as washing mop heads, emptying vacuum canisters, and rinsing sponges after each use. Caring for your tools means they will be more effective when you need to use them, saving you time and money in the long-run. For cleaning products you tend to replace frequently, consider switching to higher-quality alternatives. For example, a regular pot scrubber usually lasts 2-3 months, compared to the World’s Best Pot Scrubber which can last for over a year.
3. Keep It Simple
If you look online, you’ll find differing opinions on the best cleaning solutions to use around the house. We understand how confusing it can be to decide the right option for your needs. Simplify the cleaning process for yourself by investing in an all-purpose cleaner that you can continually rely on, so you can save more time for other things.
