Have you ever walked into someone’s home and immediately thought to yourself, “Wow, how do they do it?” On top of juggling your career, family, and social life, it can be difficult to keep up with the never-ending cycle of dust and mess. Instead of hiring an expensive house cleaner, it is possible to keep your house immaculately clean with these 7 pro-tips. Check them out!
1. Keep wet wipes handy
We praise the inventor of this product on a daily basis. These wipes disinfect surfaces easily and quickly with a simple swipe. Pay attention to those high-touch surfaces like light switches, remote controls, drawer pulls, and doorknobs!
2. Take off your shoes
Although it may be annoying in the moment, have you ever noticed how clean homes are if people are required to take their shoes off at the door? Removing your shoes at the door not only limits dirt trekked throughout the house, but also prevents unnecessary scratches on your floors. Clean floors make for a clean home.
3. Clean while cooking
Do you clean up your mess along the way while you cook? It makes the end cleaning process way easier and more efficient. While your meat is on the grill or your vegetables are roasting in the oven, take a moment to reduce the mess and clean the dishes.
4. Keep appliances off the counter
Let’s face it, we have a lot of appliances to make our everyday cooking methods easier. But instead of storing them on the counter causing a cluttered mess, store those appliances in the cupboard. An added bonus? You’ll have more space for meal-prep!
5. Organize the refrigerator
If you organize your refrigerator, you deserve a gold star. Be sure to keep the shelves and drawers clean with those handy wet wipes and order your items according to food and beverage category. The key is to be able to see all of your items upon opening the doors so nothing goes to waste!
6. Clean those kitchen counters
If there’s anything you should always clean right before you head up to bed, it’s the kitchen counters. There’s nothing like waking up to a clean kitchen in the morning. So before you hit the hay, wipe down the counters, unload the dishwasher, and scrub the sink down.
7. Make lists
How many times have you made a mental note of a to-do item and shortly after forgot? The next time you need to remember something, write it down! Whether it’s weekly tasks or chores, you’ll never forget another important item!
