When it comes to keeping your house clean with kids it can seem impossible at times. With multiple messes going on at any given time, spills, toys, and just about anything else you can think of it can be a full-time job trying to keep up with the mess.
However, don’t let these obstacles make you give up altogether. With just a few of the right tips, you can have your home clean with little effort. Here is how.
Use Your Storage Space
One of the biggest tricks when it comes to giving the illusion that your home is clean is clearing the space of clutter. If all of your surfaces are clear and there is a sense of spaciousness this can give the impression of organization and cleanliness.
Therefore, you should take advantage of using storage in your home to clear away the clutter. Use all of your closets and drawers to keep things put away rather than out and taking up space.
If your home doesn’t have a lot of store space, consider getting a storage unit or buying shelving. This can not only make your house feel cleaner but it can give you a sense of inner peace rather than fixating on the clutter.
Make Your Bed
One of the simplest yet most immediately effective things that you can do to make your house look clean is make your bed. When you bed is made the whole room seems to come together.
Even if a room is spotless from ceiling to floor if a bed is unmade it will give the illusion of being a mess. Therefore, try to get yourself into the habit of making your bed every morning. You’ll find that it makes a huge difference without actually having to clean anything!
Vacuum Every Other Day
Rather than doing a deep clean once every month which involves hours of dusting, scrubbing, and washing, why not do it in small increments. This way you will spend less long periods tearing your hair out wishing you didn’t have to be cleaning.
By vacuuming every day you can stop dirt in its tracks before it can really start to take over. This small task should take anywhere from 10-20 minutes depending on the size of your home and can make all the difference.
Don’t Wear Shoes Inside
When you wear your shoes inside you are tracking all of the dirt and mud from outside into your home. Not only are you increasing the dirt n your home but you are also spreading bacteria.
By asking your family and guests to take their shoes off when they enter the home you will cut down on nearly half of your cleaning time.
