I know when I was raising my kids, the days flew by and keeping a neat and tidy home was no small feat. But as I got older I realized that keeping things neat didn’t have to be as hard as I was making it. I just needed a better routine and better habits.

5 Quick Tips for a Cleaner Home

Keeping your home clean doesn’t have to be time-consuming or overwhelming. With a few quick and easy strategies, you can maintain a tidy home without spending hours cleaning. Here are five tips that you can implement in just a few minutes each day to keep your home looking its best.

1. Set a Timer for 10-Minute Tidying

Dedicate just 10 minutes a day to tidying up. Set a timer and focus on a specific area, such as the living room or kitchen. Quickly put away any items out of place, wipe down surfaces, and do a quick sweep or vacuum. This short burst of cleaning can make a noticeable difference without taking up much of your time.

2. Wipe Down Surfaces After Use

Get into the habit of wiping down surfaces immediately after using them. Whether it’s the kitchen counter after cooking, the bathroom sink after brushing your teeth, or the dining table after a meal, a quick wipe can prevent grime from building up and keep your home looking spotless.

3. Do a Quick Declutter Each Evening

Spend just a few minutes each evening decluttering high-traffic areas. Pick up toys, books, and other items that have been left out during the day. Encourage family members to join in and put their belongings away. This nightly routine can help maintain order and prevent clutter from accumulating.

4. Adopt the One-Minute Rule

If a task takes less than a minute to complete, do it immediately. This simple rule can dramatically reduce the amount of clutter and mess in your home. Hang up your coat as soon as you walk in the door, wash your dish right after you use it, and put away items after you’re done with them. These small actions add up and help maintain a cleaner and more organized living space.

5. Make Your Bed Every Morning

Starting your day by making your bed sets a positive tone and instantly makes your bedroom look neater. It only takes a couple of minutes but has a significant impact on the overall appearance of your room. Plus, getting into a neatly made bed at the end of the day feels rewarding.
