We all lead busy lives and sometimes it can be a struggle to stay on top of household chores. Before you know it, the mess builds up and you have to just knuckle down and get the job done. But in an age when our spare time is at a premium, we don’t want to spend all day scrubbing. In our latest infographic, we show you how to get the house into ship shape within a mere 60 minutes.
The key to achieving a fast and efficient house clean, is preparation. To get yourself in the right mindset dress up in your housework clothes – i.e. clothes you don’t mind dirtying. Then energise and motivate yourself for the work ahead by putting on an upbeat playlist. It’s also essential to put all your cleaning supplies together in one place, e.g. a bucket or a caddy, so that you can swiftly move from room to room. Another good idea is to take a laundry basket with you as you go from room to room for all items that don’t belong.
Ready, Get Set, Go!
Once you are set to go, start the timer! Our guide will show you how to work quickly through each room – starting from the kitchen through to the living/dining room, then the bedrooms and finishing up with the bathrooms. It all boils down to evenly spreading your time between all of the rooms. Don’t worry too much about cleaning little corners, just cover anything that noticeably needs cleaning.
While cleaning is undeniably a pain, it is an essential part of maintaining a healthier home and a happy family. The benefits of a clean home are massive and ideally you should look to clean on a more regular basis. Find out more cleaning tips in the infographic below.
