Having a clean house can keep you relaxed and in a good mood, but it can be hard to gauge how often to tackle certain household chores. However, if you make an effort to complete certain tasks every day, you can avoid the dreaded chore pile-up! Here’s a few things to do every day, to keep the chaos at bay.
MAKE THE BED
A freshly made bed makes your whole room seem more orderly, which will make it less likely you’ll let added messes pile up around it.
KEEP TRACK OF CLUTTER
When you leave a room, look around to check for anything that isn’t where it should be. Pick it up and put it where it belongs and make sure everyone else in the household does the same!
CLEAN WHILE YOU COOK
Take time to wash dirty dishes or put them in the dishwasher as you cook, instead of waiting until the end. That way you’ll avoid a massive pile up that could continue to grow.
WIPE UP SPILLS RIGHT AWAY
Whether it’s sauce on the stove, wine on a rug or makeup on the bathroom counter, pretty much everything is faster and easier to remove, if you clean it up right away.
SWEEP THE KITCHEN FLOOR
After you’ve finished washing up after dinner, sweep the floor. This will make it harder for dirt and grime to build up and will make mopping up quicker.
Here are a few other helpful timelines that will help keep your home in great shape all year round.
Vacuum and mop floors, wipe mirrors, empty trash bins, dust surfaces, change and launder sheets and pillowcases.
