Cleaning your house can be hard, but keeping it tidy can be even harder. Oftentimes, a house looks clean only the moment after you put away the mop and sit on your favorite couch to enjoy the fresh scent of your clean home, but unfortunately, that doesn’t last for long. However, it doesn’t mean you can’t extend the cleanliness of your house for longer.
Check out these cleaning hacks that you can do to keep your house clean for longer and feel good for longer too.
1. Wash your dishes as you use them
The kitchen is one of the busiest areas in the house, and it also tends to get dirty right away, even after you’ve carried out a top-to-bottom detailed cleaning. To prevent this from happening and to keep your kitchen clean you have two options, either was every dish as you use them or, at night, put a new load of dishes in the dishwasher and let it do its job and in the morning you will wake up to a clean kitchen.
2. Quick living room scan
Before you go to bed, do a quick scan of your living room to check for any misplaced items and take them back to where they belong. This quick daily scan of your living room will make it look clean, organized and cleaning will be much easier.
3. Wipe your bathroom counters
Dirty or messy bathroom counters can make your bathroom look dirty even when it’s not. Whether toothpaste splattered all over the counter and mirror or there’s hairs from someone in your family who shaved and didn’t clean properly, a quick wipe even with a small piece of toilet paper can do miracles. Make it a habit and you will see big results.
4. Make your bed in the morning
Your bedroom should be a place to relax, not a constant reminder of how little time you have to take care of your house, to turn your bedroom in that relaxing area you deserve, make sure you make your bed first thing in the morning, this will give you a better idea of what else needs your attention, for example, gathering clothes from the floor and putting them in the laundry basket.
