8 Unbeatable Home Cleaning Shortcuts

8 Unbeatable Home Cleaning Shortcuts

Few people really enjoy the home cleaning process. So, if you can find a way to reduce the amount of time and elbow grease you spend on home cleaning, that can be a huge relief. So, take a tip from the home cleaning experts at Maid Right® and use these shortcuts the next time you’re cleaning your home…

1. Tidy More, Clean Less

If you avoid tidying, cleaning becomes a much longer and more difficult process. You can cut down on the time and effort you put into cleaning by simply setting aside 15 to 20 minutes every night to go around your home and perform a quick tidying. It will also keep your home looking great between cleanings.

2. Create New Cleaning Stations

Cleaning is easier when you don’t need to haul supplies up a full flight of stairs. Instead of having just one cleaning supply area in your home, consider creating one or two extra cleaning supply stations. Store frequently used items in these stations so that they can be accessed quickly for nearby rooms.

3. Keep Cleaning Supplies Organized

Avoid hunting around your cabinets for sponges or glass cleaner by taking the time to properly organize your cleaning supplies. Plastic baskets are an excellent solution for cleaning supply stations.

4. Use Odds-and-Ends Baskets

Most clutter piles up because someone picks up something then puts it down in a room where it doesn’t belong. By putting odds-and-ends baskets in each room, you can make sure clutter ends up all in one spot. Each weekend, simply take each basket and put things back in their usual spots.

5. Follow an Efficient Cleaning Route

If you don’t have a planned cleaning routine, it can be easy to find yourself winding from room to room, backtracking to spots you forgot, and skipping ahead when you shouldn’t be. Before cleaning, map out an efficient room-by-room route to save time.

6. Blow-Dry Stickers Away

When you’ve got young children, you can find stickers in unexpected places. Often, they take forever to remove. But you can speed up the process by using a blow-dryer, which weakens the adhesive.

7. Keep All-Purpose Items Handy

Every home should be well-stocked with all-purpose cleaning staples like sponges, rags, microfiber cloths, as well as vinegar, white baking soda, lemon juice, and all-purpose cleaner. You can clean almost any surface so long as you have these items available.
