Most people have very little free time, which they have to divide between housekeeping, going out and meeting with friends, reserving moments for loved ones or life partner, other household chores and, of course, relaxation. No wonder it seems impossible to have a clean and tidy house at all times, especially if you have children or if you have a hectic life.
Of course, appealing to a householder is a dream that many housewives have, but this requires a generous budget and, especially, the confidence to leave someone else around the possessions. If you can’t afford to hire a housekeeper or you prefer to do something else with the money saved, it’s good to know that home sanitation can even be a form of therapy, which can bring you a better mood than you imagined!
So, you have to accept the challenge and, especially, learn how to clean it and how to keep it as long as possible, in order to enjoy other activities during the day.
So here are the suggestions you can consider to make your job easier:
- Instead of walking from one room to another trying to clean the whole house at the same time, it is better to focus on each room. This way, you are not distracted from other things, you can concentrate more easily, so you can finish faster and you will have a feeling of satisfaction after each room, which will motivate you to continue until you solve the whole house!
- Make daily orders. Before any cleaning, you must make order, ie put everything in its place, from clothing to objects used more often or less often. This process can take even longer than the cleaning itself, but you can skip it if you set aside a few minutes each day to complete this task.
- Make it a habit to wipe certain surfaces more often, such as kitchen countertops, appliances, sanitary ware, and to do certain sanitizing actions as soon as you have finished using some areas or objects. It is much easier to clean stains, liquids or other substances when they are fresh than after a few days. For example: clean the bathtub immediately after bathing, to remove soap deposits; clean the sink daily with warm water and a cloth; wash dishes after each meal; wash your cup of coffee after drinking; sweep daily, especially in heavily used areas.
- Washing clothes is considered to be another action in the cleaning process and even here you can make your work considerably easier. How? If you have enough space, buy several laundry baskets , each for a certain category of clothes: black, white, colored. This saves time sorting them. Specialists recommend buying not very large baskets, because they can make you collect more clothes than you can wash in one day, without realizing it. Every time you pack clothes for a car, put it in the wash, don’t wait for the weekend to crowd it with everything you have to do.
