Loads of you love my Monthly Cleaning Calendar which is great to hear and so many of you have told me that it has helped you maintain order within your home. Working long hours and managing pets and children can put a stop to you achieving the perfectly clean home but hopefully my blog and schedules are helping you stay on top.
I have not always been a cleaning fanatic my introduction to me will explain more
A room feels much cleaner and tidier if the beds are made and this job can literally take under one minute.
Teach your children how to make their beds too and offer them an incentive if they do this every day. Show them how to shake the pillows out and stretch out those sheets.
You never know your children may actually really making their beds and they will also get a huge sense of achievement as they know they are helping mum! I think its so important to get the children involved with the cleaning one day they will manage their own homes and you will be their influence.
Get the laundry in the machine as soon as you get up in the morning or programme a load to come on throughout the night. Aim to get this in the tumble drier or on the line before you leave the house in the morning.
Doing one daily load of washing will keep you on top and will not leave you with big over flowing laundry basket that will end of taking up most of your weekend.
A quick once over with the vacuum and seeing those vacuum lines will make you feel better, any crumbs and dust partials will be picked up leaving you with clean dust free floors.
Always do the washing up before you leave the house this way you won’t come in from a long day and see a mountain of dirty dishes waiting to greet you. And whilst you have your dish cloth in your hand give the kitchen surfaces a really quick spray and wipe.
A quick drop of bleach and a wipe around the toilet seat ensures your toilet is clean and not harbouring germs.
Always keep the seat down as toilet germs spread very quickly in the bathroom.
Odd bits of paper work, toys on the floor, clutter in the kitchen and shoes in the hallway all needs to get put in the correct places.
Sort through the kitchen clutter I have put together lots of ideas here to keep your kitchen organised and throw anything away that is not needed away.
Keep the hallway clear. If someone unexpectedly knocks on the door first impressions will count.
I really hope this post will be of some benefit to you…. and remember you can keep on top with my my monthly cleaning calendar
