With the holidays coming up making it a busy time of year, I thought I’d share a few tips and tricks for keeping your home clean.
I recently joined Grove Collaborative, a subscription service of the best natural home products. They allow you to pick your favorite items (or try new ones!) and they ship them straight to you on a schedule that you select! So they help me make sure I have what I need on hand.
I’ve found it easiest to create a simple schedule that only takes 15-20 minutes each day. Then I don’t feel overwhelmed by a big day of cleaning the whole house and I’m more likely to keep up on the tasks. I’ll be honest, I don’t stick to this schedule every week. But I always regret it! Then I spend my weekend playing catch up and swear to never get behind again…until the next time of course 😉
This is what my cleaning routine looks like, modify to make it your own!
Wednesday: Clean Floors/Vacuum
Sunday: Towels & Bedding
- Don’t let clutter collect – open the mail and put it away so you don’t have piles.
- Don’t let dishes stack up – in our home we try to either hand clean or load the dishwasher nightly after dinner.
- Wipe down the kitchen after using it – those spills on the stove are way easier to clean when they happen than a week later.
- Take care of and put away your clothes everyday – don’t let them pile up on your floor.
