There's no arguing that house cleaning can seem overwhelming at times, especially if you have small children like I do. For many, they really don't know how to clean house in a quickly and not lose out on an entire day. Here are some tips to help you with the basics.
Before You Begin
- Wear nice comfortable clothes like jogging pants and a t-shirt.
- Play some up-tempo music that you enjoy. It helps!
- Be sure to have your house cleaning supplies in one place so you don't have to go searching for something all the time.
- Do a quick pick up of all clutter before cleaning anything. It's hard to clean when you're tripping over clothes or towels on the floor.
Simple House Cleaning Tips
Wash all dishes and put them away. Clean the sink with Bon Ani or Lysol. Wipe and clean all countertops and cabinets. I recommend using paper towels instead of sponges to prevent spreading bacteria.
Next, go through and toss out all out-of-date foods. Wipe out the fridge. Clean off the range/oven and don't forget to wipe out the microwave.
Finally, sweep the floor and mop with water and a bit of Lysol.
I like to use 20 Mule Team Borax as a cleaner for sinks, toilets and the tub/shower. It works great, is safe for septic systems, and eco-friendly.
Clean mirror with glass cleaner, empty trash and sweep/mop the floor.
Dust furniture and electronics with your favorite dust cleaner/polish. Vacuum all floors.
In the bedroom, change all bed linens as well as all the above.
