Crumbs on the kitchen counter, dust on the TV, gunk in the bathroom sink — We can’t stand our houses when they are a mess. But the thought of spending an entire day cleaning it from top to bottom sends me running to the sofa for a nap. After all, in a week, it’s just going to get dirty again.
Here are three simple home cleaning steps to help curb those nagging feelings:
Set cleaning to auto or leave it to the professionals
Make friends with the latest effort-saving cleaning tools and products, such as robotic vacuum cleaners and floor washers, and self-cleaning cat boxes, which rake cat poop into cartridges that you replace every week or so. An automatic shower cleaner spiffs up your shower at the touch of a button, and self-cleaning toilet bowl cleaners scrub your toilet every time you flush. We also suggest calling in a professional to help with your cleaning needs, like your rugs, carpets, upholstery and tile & grout.
Sweat the small stuff & zap the dirt fast
Clean drips as soon as they occur, before they dry or soak into surfaces or carpet & rugs. When you spill on your range top or carpet, quickly run a damp sponge over the (hot) surface – before it stains. Dust often so it doesn’t have a chance to build up and harden in corners and crevices.
Pick a focus room & clean in short bursts
Spend another 10 minutes cleaning one room. Clean a different room every day, so eventually your whole house gets attention. Look at the top, middle and bottom of the room, and pretend you’re seeing it for the first time. Tackle the tasks you don’t always get to, like removing cobwebs and dusting plants.
Which words do you associate with spring cleaning? Stress and Hard work? A dread-filled ordeal? Corporal Punishment???!! or just ‘Eww…Yuck’! Well, here we are to re-program your beliefs about spring cleaning the house by showing you how easy it can be to transform your home into the spotless abode you desire in just a few simple steps. The main idea is to ‘work smart’ and not necessarily as hard you may think… Let’s find out how.
1. Get the family involved: don’t go solo
The worse part about spring cleaning is the thought of taking the monumental responsibility onto oneself. This will not only drain but also demotivate you even before you begin. The right way to handle the task is by getting the family involved and making it a group responsibility. In this way, maintaining the cleanliness and clutter-free level will be easier apart from the actual clearing and cleaning process being less stressful and quicker for all.
2. Delegate work areas to each family member
The best way to share the work load of spring cleaning, and not get into each other’s way, is by assigning a specific work area to each family member. Delegate a room such as the kitchen, living room etc., home components such as all the windows, shelves etc. or then processes like scrubbing, vacuuming your carpet & rugs and others depending on which works best.
3. Turn on the music and establish a reward to keep everyone in high spirits
Set the mood for a productive family day ahead by playing some peppy tunes in the background. Sing along as you throw, store, scrub, scour, wash and wipe together. Have a sense of humor about it! Don’t take the job too seriously but be assertive enough to set high cleanliness standards: no hoarding! A good way to make sure the kids cover their work areas well, is by offering motivational awards to those who do a good job. Everyone learns, bonds and enjoys themselves while the house gets a good make over.
4. De-clutter unwanted items and have cleaning aides handy
Prior to actual Cleaning Day, plan the actual spring cleaning or de-cluttering session. Getting unwanted items out of the way will make the cleansing process ten times easier. You can donate discarded clothes, toys and even furniture to the Salvation Army and other donation drives. Then stock up on the correct cleaning equipment – brushes, mops, sponges, squeegees, brooms, buckets, vacuum cleaners, spray bottles and the right liquids and detergents. The right tools are essential for convenience and ease of creating a spick and span space.
