Making Your Cleaning Schedule Easier

If you’re someone who has a demanding job and children to take care of it can be difficult to run a household. That’s why cleaning schedules are so important because it allows you to keep every room in your house tidy. But it can be difficult to maintain. Here are some tips to assist you.

Add a 15 Minute Tidy Up to Your Cleaning Schedule

Every evening before you go to bed make sure you have a 15-minute tidy-up session. This session will help you keep your house neat so you don’t have to clean up much when you get home from work. Simply do the following:

  • Take all dirty dishes to the kitchen
  • Wipe down tables with Zoflora
  • Put dirty clothes in the laundry basket
  • Pack the dishwasher or put dishes next to the sink for cleaning
  • Put all used items such as remotes or books back into their place
  • Pack your shoes back into your cupboard

Having a short tidy up session eliminates stress and makes it easier to keep your house clean without doing too much.

Music While You Clean!

Whether you’re having a short clean up session or you’re tackling all the difficult tasks on your cleaning schedule, you should play music while you work. This makes cleaning less of a chore and more of a fun activity.

Listening to your favourite music is also proven to lower anxiety and elevate your mood and motivation. So put on your favourite tunes and dance around the house while you clean!

Utilise Organisers Throughout the Home

What makes it difficult to tackle the tasks on your cleaning schedule is all the clutter around the home. It can be difficult to have a neat home when you have so much stuff lying around. Additionally, clutter also makes it difficult to clean your counters with Zoflora.

Consider getting organisers for every part of the home such as your laundry room, kitchen and bathroom. Keep your cleaning aids such as Zoflora in a rotating basket in your kitchen so you don’t have boxes or spray bottles lying around.

What’s more, you can use hanging baskets in your bathroom so you don’t have shampoos and body wash bottles lining every surface.

For your lounge, keep an open container with sections where you can put your remotes, pens and other items you use. And lastly, consider getting draws to keep miscellaneous items off your countertops.
