Cleaning Your Home: 6 Ways To Simplify This Momentous Task!

We are all works in progress. When we are trying to make changes in our lives, such as being healthier or being happier, we have to remember that simplicity is key. The fact is that when we are pushed for time, we’ve got to stick to the simple things. When we find a tried and tested method, we should use it in every aspect of our lives. Cleaning is a fantastic example. It takes a lot of time, and it can be incredibly stressful. If you’ve ever tried to clean your house from top to bottom in one day, you may find that in order to do it properly, it takes much longer than you think! Let’s show you some simple ways to make it less stressful.

 Stick to Simple Hygiene Practices

Hygiene is the best place to begin because we can spend a lot of time using products that end up causing that horrible gunk around the sinkhole. And while having hygienic practices is crucial, we can find that cleaning up after ourselves is not top of our priority list. But we can incorporate simple things to make life easier. For example, touchless faucets can eradicate a lot of the mess you get from a drippy soap dispenser.

Use Lemon in Your Cleaning Products 

Natural products are a great way to make the most of your budget. When we don’t have much money, we can’t always spend it on expensive products. And it’s important to note that these products may contain a lot of harsh chemicals. Lemons are fantastic for many reasons. You can use them in so many ways. Lemons are fantastic if you cut them into wedges and put them down your garbage disposal. You will get a fresh scent, rather than that nasty odor!

Break Out the Baking Soda

Baking soda is an amazing natural product. You can use baking soda to unscratch your plates, freshen up your mattress, but you can use them in cleaning products. Baking soda should be a staple of your cleaning cupboard. You can use it to spruce up the shower by sprinkling a small amount on a wet microfiber cloth. You can use baking soda to break down grease. And when you use this in combination with vinegar, it is a force to be reckoned with!

Break Down the Cleaning Tasks

When we don’t have enough time to do anything, the act of cleaning the house from top to bottom is not the most appealing task! And before we know it, we become incredibly resentful of the fact that we’ve got to clean the house once a week. But to make life easier, it’s about making sure you have a rota in place. Breaking down the cleaning tasks is great because then it doesn’t seem like a momentous task. But also, you may find that you won’t have to put much effort into cleaning each and every time. Cleaning is exhausting if you put that elbow grease into it, but the fact is you might not need to clean everywhere with as much vigor as you need. When we are cleaning with a schedule, we start to naturally go over little bits so when we finally come around to doing the big clean on the weekend, there’s not as much left to do.

Clean Your Cleaning Products

If you want to be cleaner, you’ve got to clean your cleaning products. When was the last time you cleaned your cleaning products? It’s a very simple thing, but once a week you need to make sure your cleaning products are bleached or left to soak in boiling water. If you spend the entire week going over surfaces with microfiber cloths, you don’t know how many germs are on them. Get into the habit of cleaning them, so you can guarantee a sterile cleaning practice.

Declutter the Place

Finally, the most simple thing you can do if you are trying to make cleaning easier is to reduce the number of items that you need to clean! Decluttering is not just a way to make your home look better, but if you’ve got a lot of furniture you’re not using, or you are considering downgrading your life, you should do it. When there’s less stuff to clean, there’s more time for you to do other things. It sounds very simple, but decluttering the place can make a massive difference. When you get into the habit of amassing items, you start to clean around them, which causes a build-up of dust. By taking the opportunities to declutter on a semi-regular basis, you are making life easier!¬†
