14 Habits that will Keep your home Clean

Note the word “habits”. All of the people with clean homes have daily habits which help them to keep their homes tidy. The life will be more enjoyable if you are one of these people whose homes can be company-ready with 15 minutes’ notice. If you want to turn this clean fantasy to reality and to achieve the status of cleaning goddess you have to learn a few deep cleanings.

1. Make your bed
A habit of making your bed each morning leads to habits of being more productive during the day. It’s one of those habits that starts our mornings right, and inspires us to do more.

For example, if you make your bed in the morning, you can notice that there is a lot of laundry on the bedroom floor and this may motivate you to move it to the hamper. That may lead you to noticing how much dirty laundry there is in the hamper and make you want to wash it. The chain goes on and on, and it all starts with a simple act of making the bed.


2. Put away your clothes every night
When you’re changing into your pajamas, it tempt you to just leave your clothes on a chair or even on the floor, but don’t fall prey to that lazy trap. Put them in your laundry hamper or return them to your closet. This takes only a few seconds. All your clothes have a place, and they go there at the end of the day without exception! If you do it daily it will take less time than it does to run around looking for the other match to a pair of socks or your favourite jeans.

3. Wash clothes Every Day
Doing laundry on a regular schedule keeps the dirty pile from becoming overwhelming. People with big families prefer doing it every morning. But if you live alone, doing laundry two times a week. It is enough to prevent dirty clothes all over your home.

4. Put things away after use
If you decided to leave things out or to put them somewhere where it did not belong, you’d never be able to find anything. If you put things back where you have determined them. You will know where to find things and you will live in neat and tidy home.

5. Put the things back where they came from
Imagine that your guests are coming and you have only 5 minutes to clean up. Just look at the dangerous stack of magazines, DVDs, or book in your living room and think about how easier the life would be if you put the things back where they came from.

6. Dust and Vacuum regularly
You have to know it’s not for everyone, but you have to vacuum daily or if you live alone, once a week. If you dust and vacuum weekly, your house will remain cleaner and you’ll save time because you won’t have to do a major cleaning each time you do decide to clean. Things will stay presentable longer.

7. Use Baskets to Organize Things
When there’s a place for everything to go, it’s easier to keep everything in its place. Scatter cute baskets throughout the house to corral your things, and add shelves to hold the big pieces.

8. Never Go to Bed With a Dirty Kitchen
Make sure that all kitchen is cleaned up before you go to bed — wash pots and pans, wipe down counters. By doing these the mess will be smaller on the next day. But if you leave your kitchen mess you’ll have to spend your morning backtracking to clean the kitchen, instead of getting a head start on the day ahead.14-habits-2

9. Unload the dishwasher before breakfast
This will prevent the pile of dirty dishes in the sink after the breakfast. Also when you dirty a dish, you can put it directly into the dishwasher, in that way you will spend less time for unloading the dishwasher. Turn on the dishwasher just before bed.

10. Leave your shoes at the door
You have to take off your shoes by entrance because the shoes track in dirt, mud, grass, and much more which means that you should clean often.


11. Keep your counters clean
Clutter quickly accumulates on counters, and the more clutter, the less likely the counter is actually going to get cleaned. So, do not be lazy even one night and wash the dishes (or load the dishwasher) if you want to have clean kitchen. Because even one night of being lazy and leaving out dirty dishes can lead into a week of having a dirty kitchen.

12. Buy fewer items with packaging
Just try to buy products with less packaging. This will reduce time you need to unpack, sort and recycle the packaging.

13. Prepare for the next day
The minutes before you fall asleep are good for picking out your outfit for tomorrow, reviewing what products you need to restock for the Saturday family dinner, checking your schedule for the next day. This will give you a jump on the day by planning ahead.

14. Be respectful of those you reside with
You have to be respectful to the other people who you live with. By keeping a house clean, neat and tidy you demonstrate your respect for their living environment. You are lucky if all of the people you live enjoy a clean and tidy home. But even when clean house is not a priority for everyone who lives in your home, you have to make them to understand that this is a way to respect what is important to you.

Adopting these 14 habits will make you see the results immediately. Also will make you happy to be in your home because the house will be clean, neat, and tidy.

      My mother taguht me it was easy to clean a clean house , so pick it up, don’t pass it up; a place for everything  everything put in it’s place.As children in my mother’s house we didn’t make messes and leave them for her to clean up as she wasn’t our maid we knew it. We never ate anywhere except at the dinner table. If we’d have left our things lay out, she’d have thrown them in the trash.

    I recently moved out of home and have had a total shock at how hard horwesouk can be!! My mum always cleaned up after me and nagged that I was messy, I just thought she was moaning for the sake of it but I now realize how easily my mess spreads now that I’m tidying up after myself! You just dont notice when somebody else is doing it for you. Its like the program wifeswap, the men are always so much more grateful when they get their wives back for all the work they do to keep a tidy home

    There are certainly a lot of details like that to take into consideration. That is a great point to bring up. I offer the thoughts above as general inspiration but clearly there are questions like the one you bring up where the most important thing will be working in honest good faith. I don’t know if best practices have emerged around things like that, but I am sure that your job is clearly identified as a fair game. Both boys and girls feel the impact of just a moment’s pleasure, for the rest of their lives.
