Cleaning Hacks: Get Tidy in 20 Minutes a Day

Father and Son Cleaning Kitchen TogetherKeeping your Airway Heights house clean may seem like a very daunting order. But cleaning need not be such a time-consuming activity. Although some tasks take time, you would be surprised to know that everyday cleaning can be done quickly. With these simple cleaning hacks, you can clean up your rental home — and keep it that way. 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. Simply assign each room to a specific day of the week. On that specific day, spend 20 minutes cleaning just that room, removing clutter, dusting, and cleaning the floors. By doing this, you ensure that each room in your house gets a surface cleaning once a week.

Another way is to 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. For example, you can be dusting the entire house one day, vacuum the next, then sweep and mop the floors on the third day. Doing one type of cleaning at a time may make it easier for you to get more cleaning done in just a short 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. Put things away in their proper places instead of leaving them around. 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. One item takes much less time to put away than a big pile of misplaced things. Keeping your home organized also makes it easy for you to find things when you need them.

One of the benefits of cleaning hacks like these is that you can set aside time to clean anywhere in your day. People have different preferences for cleaning. Some like to tidy up a bit before leaving for work in the morning, and some like doing it for a few minutes after dinner. In the event you miss your assigned task for the day, a quick spot clean of the main areas can keep your place looking tidy. Even five minutes of cleaning can go a long way toward keeping your home in great shape.
