The sooner you realize there is no way to avoid cleaning your house, the better. If you still haven’t fallen into the habit of cleaning your house regularly, there’s no time like now to start changing your ways. The truth is that people who enjoy tidying are rare, and most of us have just accepted the fact that it has to be done, in order for us to feel good in our own home. When it comes to secret weapons to keeping your home clean and tidy, here are a few that could truly help you with your chores.
Find a System and Stick to It
Sometimes all we need is a bit of structure in our lives, and this goes doubly so when it comes to doing things that we don’t like. There are many different systems that you can adopt when it comes to cleaning your household, and if you manage to stick to it, your home will look spotless and you won’t be constantly oppressed by the thoughts of having to clean this or that.
These systems are used by professional cleaning staff, so you know you can’t go wrong. If you’d still prefer to have an expert clean your house, there are sites such as helpling.co.uk/london through which you can hire one in no time at all and at reasonable rates. It’s your choice, the only important thing is to get your house nice and clean.
The System of Seven Sections
One of the best systems around that is all the rave when it comes to thorough and regular cleaning schedule is the system of seven sections. The idea is simple enough – divide your home into seven sections, and each day of the week spend up to an hour cleaning the designated section.
For example, Mondays are for your bedroom, Tuesdays for the living room, Thursdays for deep cleaning of the bathroom etc. The trick here is that you only spend an hour each day cleaning, so the work doesn’t pile up and your home constantly looks tidy. What’s more, you don’t have to spend half a day on weekends getting your house in order, as you’ve already done it gradually during the week.
Trays and Baskets
Another effective way to make sure your home is free of clutter is to use the system of trays and baskets, to keep things orderly and in their place. Whip your trays out and use them for whenever you’re eating somewhere that’s not the dining room or the kitchen. That way floors and desks around the house won’t get messy and full of crumbles, but you’ll be able to get all the bakeware sets you use back to the kitchen in one swoop.
For the everyday clutter you make, like leaving your electronic devices, cosmetics and whatnots all over the place, use a handled basket in which you can put all of the trinkets that you can easily sort out when you have the time. Use picnic baskets with lids in every room to quickly and effectively hide all the stuff lying around. This neat trick will make sure that you don’t lose anything in the quick process of de-cluttering, it’s all in one place and what’s best, and you can’t see it because of the basket lid.
Laundry baskets will help you carry your cleaning supplies when you do set your mind to cleaning. A good tip is to put into the basket all the stuff that is out of place and then put them back where they belong as you go through the house and do the cleaning.
Your cleaning secret weapon doesn’t have to be anything complicated, just a simple system that works for you and enables you to finish your cleaning quickly and efficiently. Pick a system, or combine the two and behold how your home is transformed.
