4 Simple Yet Effective Tips In Cleaning Your Home Fast & Easy

Home cleaning and organization can eat a lot of time and effort. This is why most homeowners prefer hiring professional cleaners to do the work. But did you know that there are ways to make house cleaning fast, easy and stress-free? Below are some tips and advice that can make home cleaning a breeze. Aside from making the chore simple and fast, these tips can also make it quite effortless and stress-free.

Plan and prepare
“He who is well prepared has half won the battle” – this proverb suits well to home cleaning and organization. So before you get down and dirty, make sure that everything is planned and prepared already. Create a checklist of the things that you need to do while cleaning. It’s also best if you can prepare all the tools and materials needed (and you might need) in cleaning your home. Organize your cleaning supplies in a bag or in a easy to carry bucket that you can carry around with you. Don’t forget the extra pair of gloves, apron and eye protector that you might need too.

Clean the bathroom while or before taking a shower
If you are about to take a shower, why not grab your cleaning tools and clean the bathroom before cleaning yourself? Doing this every other day or so can surely make your bathroom sparkling clean at all times. This will take just 10 minutes or less to do so make it a habit to scrub and wipe your shower room before taking a bath.

Use the vacuum effectively
Aside from your floor, you can use your vacuum to clean and dust off hard to reach areas, walls and ceiling. There are also some portable vacuums that are made to clean upholstery, appliances and many other things. Investing in a multi-functional vacuum is a good idea if your plan to clean your house regularly.

Clean as you go
Set a “clean as you go” rule in your home. Make it a habit for yourself and your family members to pick up their things as soon as they are done or finished with it. For example for your kids, teach them to pick up their toys after they are done playing with it. This simple rule can have a huge effect in maintaining and keeping your home’s cleanliness.

These simple tips can greatly help in making home cleaning fast and easy. Try them out the next time you are about to clean your home thoroughly.

  1. These are great tips! Especially with the holiday’s coming! I like the idea of cleaning the bathroom before you shower! That makes great sense to me to wash the all germs down the drain 🙂

  2. I am all about cleaning as I go. I feel like the more you do this, the less you’ll have to clean when you do a really deep clean. Also, I don’t vacuum nearly as much as I should!!

  3. Great tips and this is the best time of the year to implement them more since holidays are coming. We have a rule to clean as we go also, just makes it much easier and less to clean. So funny you talk about cleaning bathroom before showering, I do that a lot.

  4. I am always on my husband to rinse the shower when he is done using it so the soap scum doesn’t build up. He’s a work in progress, lol.
    I also need to implement this “clean as you go” policy because it would save me so much time cleaning up after everyone!
    Great tips!

  5. I love this time of the year because when I get all of our holiday stuff out I fee like i need to clean as well. It is a grea time to get things all cleaned and organized in our house. I need to vacuum way more than we do!

  6. Well I guess I’m doing something right. I always clean my shower when I’m taking a shower. I also clean as I go so I guess I’m doing pretty good. A great routine always helps and keeps me on top of cleaning.

  7. Couldn’t agree more on this. Clean as you go is the most effective way that helps me to maintain the cleanliness of the house plus i make it already a hobby to clean the bathroom whenever I take a bath so the dirts won’t stick to the bathroom and it can easily be removed.

  8. Cleaning as you go is one of the most important steps if you want to keep a space clean. Once you get off track then the rest of the place just seems so overwhelming. By cleaning as you go you end up slowly making the space into what you want it to be in the long run.
