Keeping a home in order can be a house wife’s and a working mother’s most challenging encounter she may have to face on an everyday basis.
The whole task gets a little more testing especially if there are kids running around. However, here are five easy hacks that you can incorporate into your day to make sure that you still get the place cleaned up without the burden of being in it for hours.
Do One Load of Laundry Per Day
As easy as this sounds, laundry tends to pile up magically overnight. Trying to wash at least one load a day can significantly cut down the time you spend doing a weeks’ worth of laundry.
Not only does this save you time spent on dealing with mountains of laundry, but you will also be able to get rid of dirt and stains before they set in, leaving less clothes ruined.
The next thing that you will need to do is prioritize your cleaning. Not all the cleaning in your home takes the same amount of time neither does it need the same amount of effort. To be able to breeze through the cleaning in your house, you will need to prioritize what is most important and takes the most amount of effort and handle it when you have an equal slot of time available in your day. This way, you will know what exactly to do when you have the time to do it
Get the Whole Family Involved.
Although it may seem like a hopeless endeavour, give it a shot.
Especially is there are kids around, they will respond positively to responsibility that is given to them and complete the said task. By delegating your work to the rest of the household like cleaning after themselves or taking turns to sweep and mop the floors will greatly reduce your overall burden.
Another step that can help you maintain a clean home is starting to de-clutter your rooms and common areas. Remove the two small laundry baskets that always seem to be overflowing and replace it with one medium size or large basket. Not only will you be saving on space, you will be bringing a sense of organization not the area. Same with common areas or dressing tables that is full of things that can create a mess. Remove what has not been used in a month and adopt a minimalist way of life.
By following these simple hacks, you will be able to keep your house in order in no time at all.
