Everyone enjoys a clean home but the process of cleaning and even more frustrating, keeping it clean is another story.
Some people like to dedicate a day to clean their home top to bottom, some like to clean a room a day, and some avoid cleaning so long as possible!
In order to be one of those people who have a clean home all the time, you need to make a couple cleaning habits apart of your daily routine.
We have listed ten habits of people who have a clean home to help you achieve the living environment you desire.
10 Habits of People Who Have a Clean Home
- They make their bed every morning
Why make the bed when you’re just going to get unmade again, right? Making the bed every morning gives the entire room a clean and orderly look.
It is a helpful mental process to visualize making the bed as putting yesterday to bed and starting each morning fresh with new opportunities.
- Folding and putting away clothes
It is all too easy to take off clothing at the end of a long day and leave it in a pile on the floor but make it a habit to always throw clothing in the laundry basket, or back into your wardrobe. It will go a long way in keeping your home clean and organized.
- Putting dished away in the morning
By emptying the dishwasher in the morning you are resting the kitchen for the day and you will not have to worry about unloading it when you get home from work and are trying to cook a meal.
Instead of leaving the dirty dish in the sink after dinner, be sure to place them in the dishwasher and run it so that you can start fresh in the morning.
- Clean as you cook
Cooking can leave your kitchen looking like a disaster afterward. The key to cleaning while you cook, is to multitask.
Throw scraps away, wash dishes when you through using them(washing dishes and utensils immediately after use is much easier than waiting until the food has dried and crusted on), place dishes in the dishwasher, and wipe down surfaces.
Cleaning as you cook will keep your kitchen in order and you won’t have to dread a huge job after dinner.
- Wipe down surfaces after you use them
Wipe down the bathroom sink after brushing your teeth, your vanity after applying makeup, and the table after you eat.
This will keep them clean for the next time you use them and even more importantly will keep them free from grease, dust, and grime build-up over time.
- Put items away where they belong
Everything in your home should have a specific place that it belongs to. After you use something make sure that it goes back to its home without fail.
Yes, this is something that you will have to do all day long but it will keep your home clean and organized if you are faithful in it.
- Don’t procrastinate
Address things as they come. For example when you get the mail open everything and address it immediately. Don’t leave unnecessary paper messes and pile around your home.
- Straighten up at the end of the day
It may be the last thing you want to do at the end of a long day but straightening up before bed will help you rest easy knowing that your home is in order and ready for the next day.
Just do a quick scan of your home, hang towels, set the dishwasher, tidy couch pillows and cushions. You will not regret it in the morning!
- Do the laundry regularly
Doing the wash can be a tiresome task but it has to be done, you might as well stay on top of it. Do your laundry regularly will keep your closet organized and you will always have clean clothes to put on.
- Vacuum and dust regularly
Vacuuming and dusting at least once a week will go a long way to having a clean and fresh smelling home.
Allowing dust to build up can seriously affect your health and neglecting to vacuum will actually reduce the lifespan of your carpet.
