Cleaning Hacks: Get Tidy in 20 Minutes a Day

Father and Son Cleaning Kitchen TogetherKeeping your Jenks house clean may seem like a very daunting order. But cleaning need not be such a time-consuming activity. Some tasks may take time to do, but you can do most of the basic cleaning jobs in a very short time. 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 way to clean up in 20 minutes a day is to divide up your cleaning tasks. Cleaning experts suggest focusing on just one room each day. Each room of your house can be scheduled for cleaning on a particular day of the week. On that particular day, you can remove clutter, dust, and clean the floors. Using this method, you can surface-clean each room in your house once a week. You also prevent clutter build-up.

Another way is to assign a particular task to each day. You would now be cleaning all of the same surfaces in the home if you use this method, instead of cleaning everything in a specific 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.

Good tidying habits are also important if you want to keep clutter to a minimum. 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 is living in the home, one way to keep things orderly is by letting each person have baskets for their items. Each person could then be responsible for putting the items in their bin away each day. It takes much less time to put away one piece after use than cleaning up a big pile. Your home will also look more organized and you will be able to find things you need when you need them.

Carving out time for cleaning becomes easier with cleaning hacks like these. You can set aside time to clean up 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 case you don’t have time to do the task assigned for the day, a quick spot clean of the main living areas can keep your house looking tidy. Even five minutes of cleaning can go a long way toward keeping your home in great shape.
