Cleaning Hacks: Get Tidy in 20 Minutes a Day

Father and Son Cleaning Kitchen TogetherKeeping your Heber Springs house clean can seem like a never-ending chore. But actually, cleaning the house doesn’t need to take hours out of your day. Conceding that some tasks take time, you can accomplish most everyday cleaning in a surprisingly short amount of time. Indeed, with using a few simple cleaning hacks, you can get your rental home clean – and keep it that way. If you put a system in place, you could be spending just 20 minutes each day!

First, one of the best ways to make your cleaning time down to 20 minutes a day is to divide up your cleaning tasks. Cleaning experts suggest focusing on simply one room each day. In this manner, you would assign each room in your house to a particular day of the week. On the designated day, you’d spend 20 minutes tidying up just that room, removing clutter, dusting, and cleaning the floors. In this fashion, each room in your house gets surface cleaned once a week, and clutter never gets a chance to pile up.

An alternative method to the one-room-per-day process is to assign a particular task to each day. This approach is different because you are cleaning all of the same surfaces in the home, rather than everything in one specific room. As an instance, you might dust the entire house one day, then focus on vacuuming the next, then sweeping and mopping hard floors on the third day. By doing just one type of cleaning at a time, you may, find it much easier to get more cleaning done in a shorter amount of time.

Also, an essential part of keeping your home tidy every day is by cultivating good tidying habits formed to keep clutter to a minimum. Clutter can build up quickly at any moment things are not put away after use. Rather than leave items out or setting them down to pick up thereafter, make a conscious effort to put items away in their proper places before moving on to a new task. If multiple people are living in the home, one way to keep all things collected is to create baskets or bins for each person. Each person could then be responsible for putting the items in their bin away each day. Stowing one piece away after use will take up much less of your time than cleaning up big piles of misplaced things. It will also help keep your home organized and enable you to find the things you need as soon as you want them.

Lastly, the best part of utilizing a cleaning hack such as this is that you can carve out time for cleaning anywhere in your day. Lots of people would want to do a quick run through the house before they leave for work in the morning, while others prefer to spend a few minutes after dinner tidying up. If you don’t have the time to complete your assigned task that day, focus on a quick spot clean in the main living areas. Even only five minutes of cleaning can go a long way toward keeping your home in great shape.
