Cleaning Hacks: Get Tidy in 20 Minutes a Day

Father and Son Cleaning Kitchen TogetherKeeping your Hoover house clean can often seem to be such a time-consuming task. However, cleaning may also be an enjoyable activity. Although some tasks take time, you would be surprised to know that everyday cleaning can be done quickly. These simple cleaning hacks can, not only help you get your rental home clean but keep it that way as well. If you put a system in place, you could be spending just 20 minutes each day!

One of the ways to cut down your cleaning time is to divide up your cleaning tasks. Cleaning experts suggest focusing on just one room each day. Using this method, you assign a day of the week to each room in your house. On that specific day, spend 20 minutes cleaning just that room, removing clutter, dusting, and cleaning the floors. This way, you get to clean each room once a week and prevent clutter from piling up.

Alternatively, you can also assign a particular task to each day. This differs from the one-room-per-day approach because you are cleaning all of the same surfaces in the home, instead of cleaning everything in one room. You can focus on dusting the entire house one day, then vacuuming the next, then cleaning the floors on the third day. By doing one type of cleaning at a time, it may be easier to get more things clean in a shorter time.

Keeping good tidying habits lets you keep clutter to a minimum, thus keeping your home tidy. Clutter can build up quickly when things are not put away after use. Instead of leaving items lying around, make a conscious effort to return them to their proper places before doing something else. If more than one person will be living in the home, designating individual baskets or bins can ease cleaning chores. Each person could then be responsible for putting the items in their bin away each day. It’s easier to put one item away than to clean up a big pile of misplaced items. It also helps keep your home organized and you can easily find things when you need them.

Cleaning hacks like these let you find time for cleaning at any time of the day. There is no best time for tidying up. Some prefer doing it in the morning before leaving for work, while others like doing it after dinner. A quick spot clean of the main living areas helps a lot in maintaining a tidy appearance when you don’t have time to do the assigned task for the day. Even five minutes of cleaning can go a long way toward keeping your home in great shape.
