Get rid of clutter and dirt in 5 simple steps.
Keeping your home clean and clutter free is no easy venture. However there are ways to make this difficult task a little easier. Picking the right tools or establishing a routine could be game-changers!
If you live in a small apartment a handheld vacuum cleaner might be a lifesaver. In a bigger home it might not help at all. There are no perfect cleaning products (unless we’re talking about facial cleansing). It all depends on the size of your home and the surfaces that prevail. Different tools work for different homes. Experiment with different products until you find the ones that work best for you.
It’s so easy to create collections of things lying about in an untidy state. We just wish it was as easy to get rid of them. Let us present an innovative way to catch your clutter in one spot – clutter catchers. It’s a revolutionary idea in staying organized. Think about all the places that get cluttered up the easiest. Maybe it’s your bedroom, full of clothes you’re not sure where to put. Firstly, get a stylish basket. Secondly, place it in the corner of the room. Thirdly, let it do its job – catch all that clothes, pillows, toys and other paraphernalia. Watch as your bedroom transforms into a tidy heaven.
Another useful place for a clutter catcher is by your entrance – for keys, documents, mail and other things we leave in mysterious places. What about a small clutter catcher in a bathroom drawer? Or a big one in a closet or an attic? Might make your life tidier!
We’ve all heard this one before but it really works! Establishing a routine will keep your home looking neat in the long run. It can be as simple as dusting on Mondays, laundry on Tuesdays, floors on Wednesdays, the bathroom on Thursdays and the kitchen on Fridays. Take the weekends off – you deserve it!
In the words of the great Marie Kondo herself – if it doesn’t spark joy, let it go. Most of our mess is created by the things we don’t need in the first place. Why overwhelm your closet with clothes you haven’t worn in years? What about that badminton set lying underneath your sofa? Getting rid of everything you don’t use will make your (cleaning) life so much easier!
It might seem impossible but there are ways to improve the torture we call cleaning. Find your groove. Spice things up by incorporating something you love into your routine. Most importantly, reward yourself afterwards. Blast the music loud, dance around while you clean and finish everything off with a favorite snack!
