Do you ever feel that you cannot keep up with all your chores? You clean one day only to end up with a messy home the next. The problem here is that you probably don’t clean up daily. Tackling chores everyday will keep your space tidy and will help you to not feel overwhelmed with the amount of work you need to do. Here are my top five daily tips for keeping a clean home.

  1. Wash your dishes after each meal. Besides looking disgusting, dirty dishes in the sink will only pile up. Once washed, you will be able to use your cooking ware for the next meal. You won’t have to frantically wash and dry something in order to be able to use it right away. Your home will also smell fresher.
  2. Do a load of laundry. You can wash anything: clothes, rugs, sheets, towels, etc. Chances are, something in your home needs to be washed. If you don’t have a washer and dryer in your home, do your laundry at least once a week instead. You do not want to spend hours on end doing your laundry. You’ll either be stuck at home or stuck at the laundromat.
  3. Put everything in its place. Pick up everything off the floor and relocate all your rogue items. Maybe your clothes are on the floor, your bills are on the kitchen table, or your mugs are on the nightstand. But first, make sure that everything has a place to go to. Perhaps you need to set up an area where you can put your remote controls or your shoes.
  4. Make your beds. This will make you feel like you have your life in control. Seriously. It will also make your bedrooms look one hundred times better. If you’re like me, half of your pillows will end up on the floor, so this tip also helps to tidy up.
  5. Clean your tables and counter tops. These are some of the areas that become dirty the quickest. You get food, dirt, water, and toiletries all over the place. Simply keep disinfecting wipes for use in each room for easy access.

I hope these tips have helped you to keep a clean and organized home. They are so easy to do that every member of the household can help. Guests can now come over anytime without you freaking out over cleaning your home. Put these tips into practice everyday and your home will be looking top notch.
