Everyone appreciates a clean house, but hardly anyone enjoys cleaning. If you don’t have much time to get the house clean, then you need to do things differently. These time-saving housework tips will help you have a clean house while spending less time doing the work.
Set A Timer To Get Some Work Done
You will be shocked by how much work you can get done in just ten or fifteen minutes. Set the timer if you have a few extra minutes before leaving the house in the morning or the evening when you get home from work. Dust, vacuum, wash the sinks and get as many small projects done as you can before the timer goes off.
Take Advantage Of Your Machines
The dishwasher and washing machine can do more than you might think. Some toys can be put in either of those machines for quick cleaning. Rugs, pillows, shoes, and blankets may also do fine in the washing machine, and you just need to read labels and be thoughtful about what you put in it for easy cleaning.
Keep Good Tools On Hand
It is easier to dust as often as is needed when you have a duster. The same is true of bathroom and kitchen cleaners and tools. Keep all your products and tools in a convenient location so that you can grab them and do a quick cleaning anytime you have a moment.
Have A Fresh Set Of Sheets Ready To Go
If you avoid changing the sheets because of how long of a process it is, then you need another set of sheets. Keep them on hand and quickly replace the dirty sheets. That way, you can make your bed immediately and worry about washing the sheets later.
Hire Help For Big Jobs
Getting a professional to help with large household chores such as floor cleaning and deep cleaning can save you time now and in the future. Hire a maid service to come deep clean your kitchen cabinets. Regularly schedule a professional carpet cleaning. Doing the big jobs well will save time with daily cleaning tasks.
Create A Routine That Is Easy To Keep
Don’t try to be overly ambitious with your cleaning routine or you won’t keep it. Instead, set a few easy daily and weekly goals and do the big projects when you have extra time. Figure out what time of day works best to get in a few minutes of cleaning so that you won’t avoid it even when you are busy.
You are never too busy to have a clean house. Use these tips to get on top of things. You will feel good about the housework you get done each day when you clean for even a few minutes.
