Tips to Keep Your Home Spic & Span!

There never seem to be enough hours in the day to keep on top of everything, and tidying up the house may not exactly be the thing you want to prioritise. It is one of those dreaded chores, and the longer you leave it, the worse it can be. Letting things pile up to the spring clean may not be the wisest choice. It is far better to stay on top of things as you go along. Here are some ways to help you stay on top of the household chores.

Throw away the things you don’t need

Most people’s homes are jam-packed full of old things that no longer serve a purpose, or are broken and are never going to be fixed. In the evening, find ten minutes or so each day to get rid of all this stuff. Grab a bin liner and go through each room in turn, a day at a time if you will and fill up the bin liner. Go through drawers and just clear your home of all the useless things. You will feel a catharsis for doing this, as if you are finally letting go of the past and old emotions, it will have a positive effect on your mental health. 

 

Organise your wardrobes and drawers

Don’t just throw things in the wardrobe and drawers, as if this is a remedy to a messy home. All that happens is, as soon as you need something, everything is back out. So, keep these things tidy too. Throw or give away old clothes to give yourself some more space too. 

 

Tidy your laundry away 

Have a dirty laundry basket to keep all the dirty clothes out of the way. Also, once you have cleaned and dried your clothes, don’t leave them in a pile on the sideboard, tidy them away.

 

Storage space

Make sure you have enough cupboards for your needs. If you are constantly trying to shove things into a tiny chest of drawers, perhaps you should invest in a new one. Storage is essential to a tidy home. This goes for everything, like a shoe rack to a jewellery box. If you have enough storage space, it will be easier to keep on top of your housework. 

 

Call the experts

If you really do struggle to find the time to clean your home, but you want a beautiful clean home, then maybe you should invest in a cleaner. Burke Maids, for example, can provide you with different cleaning packages for your needs. Don’t suffer an untidy home when you can easily remedy the situation.

 

Clean as you go

One of the best ways to stay on top of all your housework is to simply clean as you go. Tidy that dish away after you use it, throw your dirty clothes into the dirty laundry basket, put all the dirty plates in the dishwasher, etc. If you can keep on top of things on a daily basis, you will find life a lot easier going forward.
