1. Set aside a designated cleaning day each week. Choose a day that works best for your schedule and make a commitment to cleaning and tidying up the house on that day.
  2. Make a list of tasks that need to be completed each week. This can include dusting, vacuuming, cleaning the bathroom and kitchen, and doing laundry. Having a list can help you stay organised and ensure that you don’t forget any important tasks.
  3. Keep cleaning supplies easily accessible. Store cleaning supplies in a central location, such as under the kitchen sink, so that you can quickly grab what you need when it’s time to clean.
  4. Don’t let clutter build up. Take a few minutes each day to put things away and tidy up. This will help to prevent clutter from accumulating and make it easier to clean.
  5. Use a timer to stay on track. Set a timer for 15-20 minutes and focus on cleaning one specific area or task until the timer goes off. This can help to keep you motivated and ensure that you don’t get overwhelmed.
  6. Delegate tasks to other members of the household. If you live with others, assign specific tasks to each person to help lighten the load.
  7. Keep a dirty laundry basket in each bedroom. This will make it easier for everyone to gather their dirty laundry and keep it out of sight.
  8. Use a microfibre mop or cloth to pick up dust and dirt. These materials are highly effective at trapping dust and dirt, and they can be easily washed and reused.
  9. Use natural cleaning products. Many cleaning products contain harsh chemicals that can be harmful to your health and the environment. Consider using natural alternatives, such as vinegar and baking soda, to clean your home, or look at the wide range of eco cleaning products that are now available.
  10. Stay on top of maintenance tasks. Regularly cleaning and maintaining appliances, such as the oven, dishwasher, and washing machine, can help to prevent them from breaking down and becoming dirty.
  11. Use a lint roller to remove pet hair from furniture. A lint roller is a quick and easy way to remove pet hair from upholstery and other surfaces.
  12. Use a toothbrush to clean hard-to-reach areas. A toothbrush is a great tool for cleaning small crevices and corners that may be difficult to reach with a larger cleaning tool.
  13. Use a hand-held vacuum to remove crumbs and other small debris from furniture and upholstery.
  14. A shoe rack is a great way to keep shoes organised and off the floor, which can help to reduce clutter and make the home easier to clean.
  15. Use an extendable duster to remove dust and cobwebs from hard-to-reach areas.
