Making cleaning less of a chore

Keeping a house clean can seem like an eternal task. As soon as you clean one room, another is dirty and by the time you've finished spring cleaning, summer is often coming to a close.

Instead of fretting about the futility of keeping your home clean, it's best to attack the chore with a solid plan. By making a schedule and getting sound advice, it's possible to stay ahead of house cleaning. Here are a few of the best tips for keeping your residence clean and well-ordered.

Keep it steady
Although it can seem like setting aside some time each day for cleaning is antithetical to the mission to reduce the amount of time you spend on the chore, doing so can actually save you a great deal of time. By spending a few minutes everyday vacuuming or sweeping, you can save yourself from getting too far behind and feeling daunted by the prospects.

The right equipment
One way of drastically reducing your cleaning load is to make sure you have the right supplies. New, improved products are always appearing on the market, and many of these can save you a great deal of time and effort.

Heavy duty solvents and degreasers can make your life much easier. Other products, such as sponge erasers and a handheld vacuum, may seem like frivolous purchases at first, but once you incorporate them into your routine, you'll wonder how you ever lived without them.

Make it fun
This might seem impossible, but it can be done. By removing the stress from the job and taking it slow, you may find that cleaning loses some of its dread. Play your favorite music or listen to a book on tape and you'll see the time fly by. Many people report that, on nights when they can't sleep, they get a lot of cleaning done, and that it helps them relax.

In Brief

  • Keeping a house clean can seem like an eternal task.
