Cleaning Hacks: Get Tidy in 20 Minutes a Day

Father and Son Cleaning Kitchen TogetherKeeping your Cutler Bay house clean can seem like a very tedious task. But cleaning a house doesn’t have to be such an arduous activity. Though some tasks do take time, most of the cleaning can be done in a short amount of time. These simple cleaning hacks can get your rental home clean and help you keep it that way. If you put a system in place, you could be spending just 20 minutes each day!

One way to make the most of the 20-minute cleaning time is to divide up your cleaning time. 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. Then you spend 20 minutes in that room– removing clutter, dusting, and cleaning the floors. This way, you get to clean each room once a week and prevent clutter from piling up.

You can also assign a particular task to each day instead. 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. You could dust everything one day, vacuum the next, and then sweep the floors on the third day. By doing one type of cleaning at a time, it may be easier to get more things clean in a shorter time.

Keeping your home tidy means having good tidying habits so you can keep clutter to a minimum. Clutter can build up quickly when things are not put away after use. Make an effort to always put things away after using rather than leaving them lying around to pick up later. If other people are living in the home, you may want to create bins or baskets for each one. 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. When your home is organized, it will also be a lot easier to find things you need when you need them.

These cleaning hacks enable you to set aside time for cleaning anytime during the day. There is no best time for tidying up. Some prefer doing it in the morning before leaving for work, while others like doing it 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.
