Want a clean and tidy house? Here’s 10 things that people with clean houses do every day to make sure their houses stay looking and feeling just great!
Clean house tips
1. Always make the beds
Bedrooms look instantly tidier and more relaxing and inviting to be in if the bed is made and pillows and cushions are plumped and straightened.
2. Always do the dishes
Keep kitchen countertops free from dirty dishes by keeping on top of the washing up – dealing with them straight away makes them easier to clean and keeps the kitchen looking neat.
3. Wipe down kitchen counter tops
Wiping down the kitchen work tops once a day keeps them clean, fresh and tidy. This makes your kitchen look and feel good to be in.
4. Deal with clutter and rubbish
It’s simple – don’t let clutter accumulate – if you get it out then put it away when you’re done with it. Then the house stays tidy. As for rubbish – be sure to empty bins every day and throw away or recycle any rubbish.
5. Clean the bathroom
Doing a quick wipe and swipe of the bathroom daily means it stays fresh. You can literally get this job done in minutes – check out our guide on How To Clean The Bathroom In Just 5 Minutes!
6. Deal with the mail
Sort and organise the mail daily – don’t just let it stack up – deal with it then file it. Same goes for all the correspondence they send home from schools too – add it to your diary then throw the letter into the recycling.
7. Clean up as you go
This simple task of cleaning as you go means you deal with things as they happen – clean up spills as soon as they happen, wipe fingerprints from glass when you see them, clean up as you cook. It just means you stay on top of the cleaning without any effort.
8. Do at least one load of laundry
Keeping on top of the laundry means it doesn’t stack up and become a huge job. At least one load a day – washed, dried, ironed and put away stops laundry piling up and cluttering up the house.
9. Clean the kitchen sink
It takes literally 2 minutes to clean down the kitchen sink it keeps it fresh and hygienic, gets rid of water marks, stops any bad smells from settling in the drains and keeps the kitchen looking tidy and clean.
10. Quick tidy the living room
Especially if you’ve got kids – this one is a big one for me. Once the kids have gone to bed do a quick 5 minute tidy of the living room, tidy away toys, run the vacuum over the floor if you have time, straighten cushions and throws, re-stack magazines and create a tidy space to chill out in for the evening.
