No one wants to spend their time cleaning the house, but we all know that it is a necessary part of life.
We all have that one chore that is more dreaded than the rest, but that doesn’t change the fact that house cleaning isn’t the best way to spend your time.
The good news is that you can reduce the amount of time spent to complete the chore so you can get back to the things in life that you really want to do. Besides, who don’t want to clean house faster?
Here are a few quick tips that will help you clean the house faster!
Stay on Task – Distractions cause house cleaning to become an all-day chore at times.
Be sure that you stay on task and avoid distractions.
Get the floor swept or the laundry in the machine rather than checking the latest Facebook news!
A tip that can help is don’t keep the phone close, just play some music! Set a timer to keep you focused on the time for cleaning!
Multi-Task – There’s no reason to sit and stare at the dishwasher as it cleans those dishes or the washing machine as it spins and spins. So, make good use of this time and get to work on other areas of the home that need to be cleaned.
This is a great time to do a 15 minute tidy with a garbage bag and laundry basket (to put dirty laundry in that you find or to put things in that go in other rooms, when you get there you can put that item away)
Stay Adios to Clutter – Clutter is easy to accumulate but it is also easy to get away from.
Decluttering your home will save you time and headache since you’ll be able to find things faster than before. There’s also less to clean when there’s less clutter!
I love the book 31 Days to a Clutter-Free Life, it is my favorite on decluttering! It takes you through every space including your computer and paperwork!
Cleaning Products – Choose the right cleaning products and you’ll save yourself a ton of time and hassle.
Sometimes it is worth paying that extra dollar for the better product that ‘diminished dirt before your very eyes. To enhance the power of your cleaning supplies, be sure to spray and allow the products to sit for a few minutes before cleaning.
To me there is nothing like Collaborative Grove, they send me natural products every month and I couldn’t be happier with their products or service!
Clean Regularly – If you clean on a regular basis there will be less mess so you won’t be stuck cleaning for what seems like an endless amount of time.
Schedule a time for house cleaning and stick to the routine!
Get the family involved, everyone needs to be doing their part! You can get a chore list here showing you what chores your kids should be doing at what ages!
These are just simple, intentional steps you can take to help you get the house cleaned faster! Hope it helps!
