5 Quick Tips to Keep Your House Clean

Who else feels overwhelmed when your house is messy?

 As a mom, a messy house can be paralyzing. In fact it can become so overwhelming that it consumes you to the point that you feel defeated and throw up your hands, surrendering to everything else. This is when the mess can get really unbearable. The house suddenly becomes a never ending pile of laundry and dirty dishes and every other room becomes some sort of storage space for unwanted things.

Need a little help getting house in order? Here are 5 easy house cleaning tips to keep your house clean. These tips are quick to implement that will make your house feel super clean every single morning.

5 Quick HouseCleaning Tips:

1. Make your bed

Keeping your house clean begins first thing in the morning. The bed is the focal point in every bedroom. That's why if the bed and unmade and messy, the whole room just feels cluttered. Since the bed takes up most of the space in the room, the simple task of the making the bed instantly tidies the room which make you more organized.

Form the habit of making your bed first thing in the morning. It will soon become a mindless morning routine. Keep the bed linens to a minimun. A simple bed comforter and a couple of throw pillows is all that is needed to make the room more relaxing.

2. Shine the sinks

Do you have a pet peeve in your house?

Mine is the kitchen sink and it drives me crazy when dirty dishes are left setting in it. It's the one area in my house when it is shined and cleaned that gives my house a more organized look.

A shiny sink keeps the dirty dishes under control.

Not only do I shine my kitchen sink, but I also clean my bathroom sinks every night. A simple routine of swiping your bathroom makes the area look clean and tidy.

3. Swipe the surface

Just as shining your sinks, a quick daily swipe of other surfaces will instantly tidy up a space. Keep kitchen counters, tabletops, and furniture wiped clean of dust and sticky fingerprints.

This routine doesn't take a long time to do. Just simply wipe down surfaces in the breakfast area after breakfast, swiping the mirror after brushing your teeth. Doing these two things will make your morning a bit less stressful and a lot more relaxing.

4. One load of laundry a day

In order to keep the laundry under control I always toss in a load before breakfast. By doing this one simple step, my laundry pile stays under control and is more manageable.

 5. 10 minute tidy sweep

This 10 minute tidy sweep gets the entire family involved in the cleanup. I recently started designating 10 minutes to tidy up the living room and dining room before the kids bedtime.
