7 steps to keep your house clean

Many people feel overwhelmed by the care they need to keep their house clean. It is understandable! Before leaving for work, they must take care of the children, take them to school or daycare. Yet all of this is part of life! But how will you take care of your family while keeping your home spotless?


This can be a challenge, but remember this: Anything that's left hanging around the house will get dirty. That's why, in this article, we will discuss certain steps to take to help you keep your house clean.


1. Make your bed as soon as you get up


Shake your bed covers a bit and place them neatly on your bed. This will help your bedroom look more organized and give you the feeling of accomplishment even before you have had your coffee, even if it only took a few minutes.


2. Wash your dishes as you use them



When you cook, get used to cleaning the dishes as soon as possible to get rid of that clutter on your counters. This will allow you to work more efficiently in the kitchen.

We all know that pans, which can be hard to clean, can smell and require more intensive scrubbing. They can often be left in the sink for quite a while. So clean everything that's cluttering your sink as soon as possible which will enable you to use it with more ease when needed.

3. Sweep your floors at the end of the day



You have prepared meals, you have eaten around the table, you have fed and brushed the animals, all these activities have certainly left crumbs and dirt on your floors. Why not sweep the floors in the kitchen and the dining room? You will avoid dragging dirt through the house. In no time, everything will look much cleaner.

4. Wear your clothes more than once



At the end of the day, some of your clothes are probably still quite clean and could return to the closet. To help you recognize them, you could divide your closet into two sections. You will have clean clothes on one side and those already used on the other side. This can help you have a much neater room and a lot less laundry.

5. Try not to move around the house empty-handed



You want to avoid unnecessary steps! If you always walk from the basement to the ground floor, or from room to room why not carry something with you? Put things in their place every time you move. For example, you take the laptop in the basement and put it back in the office, from where you take the toy you put in the toy box. In this way, you will significantly reduce the time allotted for cleaning up the clutter left behind.

6. Do not forget to brush your animals



Yes, you love these little animals, but they lose a lot of hair. To avoid the inconvenience of sweeping through the entire house, brush them outdoors in the summer and in the garage in winter. This will protect you from allergies and keep the air fresh in the house.

7. Put away your coats and shoes



Seasonal changes require us to use a variety of coats and boots. But do you need to have them near the front door when you know they can accumulate a lot of dirt and water? Also, when placed at the entrance, they can become obstacles when you are trying to clean.

The solution is to store everything you do not really need in the closet. You will be surprised to see how such a small action can help your house feel less cluttered.
