6 ESSENTIAL RULES TO KEEP YOUR HOUSE CLEAN EVERYDAY
The state of your house has a huge impact of your daily life and keeping a house clean is a fair amount of work. You worked 56 hours per week for last 5 years or so… You are tired and your brain is shot. There are people who manage to keep their homes spotless at all times, and it’s surprisingly easy to do it yourself.
Home experts says, “Particles in the air can not only be a vehicle for the spread of airborne disease but also can be the major cause of many allergic and respiratory reactions, dust may expose us to bacteria, viruses, mold, animal dander, dust mites, insect remains and pollens.”
Here are some of the best rules so you and your family can learn how to keep a house clean every day.
- Clear your clutter
A cluttered home is much harder to clean, so make decluttering your first priority. Set your timer for 25 minutes to start from choosing a small area that contains things you do not have any emotional attachments, like shelf, small cupboard, a drawer. Get rid of everything you don’t regularly use, organize the things you do, and commit to keeping it that way.
Continue in 20 minutes, pause after each one to assess and if you would like to keep going, sweep of your house with a trash bag in hand, seeing how quickly you can fill the bag. If you have a good stamina, you may set your timer for another 30 minutes or an hour. But make sure to stop before you feel too tired. When you end each session feeling better, you will be most likely to return the next day to do more.
- Place your clothes away every day
Placing your clothes away properly at the end of a long, tiring day has always been a downfall, quickly leading to piles of clothes in your room. It’s easy and might sound hilarious – when you are tempted to just chuck the clothes somewhere, anywhere, just start calmly counting seconds in your head. This started as an exercise just to see how long it would actually take to just put the clothes away. You will realize, it will only take sixty seconds to hang up and fold whatever you’re wearing. But this counting practice, which you employ whenever you’re convinced that you’re too tired to put your clothes away, has turned into a successful and oddly meditative pre-bedtime ritual.
- Clean the fridge at least twice a year and empty it once a week.
Refrigerators and freezers are absolutely necessary in the kitchen and are the most used appliance. Keeping it clean and sanitized is necessary not just to prevent the breeding of germs that can further cause diseases like food poisoning. The right way to do is deep cleaning at least twice a year. You will need to empty your fridge entirely and then take out all the shelves too. To clean the interior shelving, use a warm water with baking soda or vinegar. Do not use cleaning materials that may release harmful substances or unpleasant to food. Also do not use anything that is abrasive or will generate foam. Ensure that you rinse the interior of the fridge & freezer. For the external surface can be cleaned with warm soapy water using a soft cloth.
To clear your fridge, pick a time every week (Friday and Saturday morning is a good one) and empty out the leftovers from the past seven days. You’ll have a clean fridge and no nasty smells developing way at the back.
- Set a time limit to dusting
Dusting isn’t an excitement job but it’s a necessary one as it reduces your risk of allergies and sickness. There’s a lot of dusting method that you can apply but the proper way is to use a microfiber cloth – Go left to right, top to bottom. This will lower allergens and improve the air quality in your house. You should regularly clean the areas that collect dust quickly and the most perceptible parts of the home. This includes furniture in your bedroom, living room, dining room, bathroom, and the kitchen.
For venetian blinds, use the string to close them one way and dust, then close them the other way and repeat…it’s effective and a lot more efficient than trying to do one at a time.
5. Vacuum at least twice a week
To most people, cleaning means taking away a trash and clutter, wiping and mopping visible dirt or dust and getting rid of unpleasant odors. However, according to the experts, the “filthiest” place in your home maybe the invisible air. Home experts recommend that carpets and rugs be vacuumed at least twice a week, and more often in high-traffic areas. If you have a pet at home, daily vacuum cleaning is strongly recommended to remove dirt, hair, dander, and the smaller microscopic allergens that are invisible to the naked eye.
6. Prioritize your Most Valuable Place
There are some issues at home that bothers you, so put much effort in that particular area. Whether it is a simple dust under your bed or the dirty tiles in the bathroom, prioritizing those items will set your mind relieve and stress free, and it helps you to prioritize more important things.
