Are general home cleaning and organizing not for you?
Does the thought of doing it weekly or twice a week tire you out?
Here are some habits to try and follow that would make your life a whole lot easier.
Make the Bed
Wake up in the morning and the first thing to do is make your bed. Prepare your bed in the morning to enjoy a nice and tidy bed in the evening after a whole tiring day. We all feel lazy when thinking about tidying our bed first thing in the morning.
Practicing this daily will soon be an instinct for us. Tidying our bed will be a part of our daily routine. A few minutes of home cleaning daily will be worth it in the long run.
Clean the Comfort Room While Taking a Shower
While taking a shower, we use conditioners or supplements to keep our hair healthy. We leave products in our hair for a couple of minutes. Start scrubbing walls and removing hair from drains during those minutes.
Adding this to our daily routine will always keep our toilets clean and hygienic.
Cleaning while Cooking
Cooking is very tiring, an addition to that is seeing your kitchen dirty after cooking. A great habit to develop is cleaning while cooking. Wipe down your countertops while waiting for the food to cook or while the water is boiling.
Peel fruits and vegetables directly into the bin. Before leaving the kitchen, make sure that all dirty plates, utensils, and cups are clean and in their proper places. Waking up to a clean kitchen will make your day lighter.
Throw out the Garbage
Before riding your car to work, always remember to take out the trash. Taking out the trash daily will prevent house flies and foul odor. Coming home to a clean and odorless home will help relieve stress.
Do a Quick Sweep
Glancing around your home, you see corners with dust. Cleaning dusty spaces will help prevent colds. It will be easier during weekly general cleaning, you will be able to lessen the dirt daily. Daily cleaning of the surfaces of your home will prevent dirt build-up and it will be more presentable.
Keep Cleaning Tools in Reach
Always keep in mind that it will be very handy to keep tools near when you need them. Have a napkin near your table to wipe after eating. Keep a scrubber in the restroom to easily clean while taking a shower.
It is easier to clean if you have your tools accessible. Having them stored far away will make you feel very lazy and will result in procrastination.
Never Leave a Room With an Empty Hand
Whenever you leave a room, always look for items that do not belong there. Bringing your stuff in a room and leaving without it is considered a mess. It does not matter if you are in a hurry or in an emergency, never leave a room empty-handed.
For instance, after bath lotion on a couch or sofa, it is more relaxing instead of your stool in front of your vanity mirror. Then leaving the lotion is called littering.
Home Cleaning with these tips can make your life easier.
Tired of coming home from work every day, we may feel very lazy doing daily chores and tend to delay cleaning. Tricking ourselves by adding one habit at a time to our daily routine will help us be more productive. We should start doing these healthy habits to have a cleaner and more hygienic home.
By removing these chores to our weekly general cleaning, we will be able to focus on every nook and cranny. Being able to do home cleaning and organizing daily will help maintain a fresher and clearer day.
