17 Incredibly Simple Tips

To Keep Your House Clean (That You Can Do Today)

Keeping your home regularly can be tough if you have kids, pets, roommates, a busy schedule, and/or long-term guests in your home! Understandably, you won’t have many seconds to spare by the end or even at the beginning of your day.

Make a Schedule

A daily schedule is important because it reduces the stress brought on by a large and/or long list that spans an entire week. Make your lists practical and easy to do right then and there so you can start crossing tasks off of your list from daybreak until the evening without even thinking about it!

You can have one general list in your kitchen where all tasks are listed, or you can have the tasks that need to be completed in each space listed there! For example, if your task is to make the bed, then write that task somewhere in your bedroom so you can mark it off before walking out!

Other task ideas to keep your home clean include:

  • Put dirty clothes in the hamper.
  • Do one load of laundry and run the dish washer simultaneously
  • Set a timer for 10 minutes and put items in their places
  • Wipe down X number of surfaces and then switch to different ones the following day
