Today I’m sharing with you 10 tips slash habits for a clean home. It’s good practice to keep our homes clean as it makes a better home and also teaches the kids to be clean at all time as they grow.
1 One is make your bed every morning no matter what always leave yourself an extra three minutes in the morning to give yourself time to make your bed.
Even if the rest of your room isn’t in perfect condition having a made bed makes it look so much better and tidy and gives a relaxing vibe to your bedroom.
2 Is to always load your dishwasher and clean sink at night So I love loading my dishwasher at night because I can run it, and when I wake up the next morning everything will be clean and I can unload it then and start off with a fresh empty dishwasher for the day.
If there is anything in your sink that needs to be hand washed, make sure you do that, and then wipe out the sink and clean it as well.
I use the Method anti-bac spray for this Just wipe it out with a paper towel and then rinse it out with some water After my sink is nice and clean, i take a little of my J.R. Watkins lemon spray you can get it from target its natural (the spray).
And I just spray a little bit of that down the drain and it makes my kitchen smell so good and fresh and gets rid of any food odor very good tip to have a good clean home.
3 Always wipe down your bathroom and put away your make up and hair products and everything like that, as soon as you are done with it.
Don’t leaving it laying out, just put it away have a spot for everything. That way, your bathroom doesn’t look cluttered I think bathrooms look way nicer and luxurious when the counter top isn’t covered with a ton of products.
Usually the only things that I keep out are my makeup which is nicely organized in an acrylic container, our tooth brushes in an apothecary jar Cotton balls, Q-tips, and sometimes my makeup mirror and I always make sure to wipe out the sink.
This takes ten seconds and you can get rid of all that gunky tooth paste, hair, makeup that’s fallen into the sink anything like that.
And, I will also look at our hand towel and see if that needs to be changed out as well.
4 Is to use drawer organizers and stackable under cabinet storage containers to sort your products.
So, these are my favorite I got them from menards I’m sure you can find them anywhere but I love these because they actually lock together so they won’t slide all over the place. I have four under here get as many as you need based on how big your under cabinet area is I sort my products into four categories Body lotions and sprays, nail stuff, hair care, and sunless tanning products.
I also love these little drawer organizers I use them in drawers all through out my house this is one I keep in my night stand where I just keep hand lotion, a hair tie, a candle, lip balm lens wipes.
Little things that I would reach for So rather than being loose all over the drawer they are just nice and contained in one little organized.
5 Get some kind of shoe storage for your entryway I think the easiest way to make your entry way look nice is to not have a bunch of shoes thrown all over the place So I got mine from Home Goods, it was about $50 and I love it because the shoes are tucked away they’re not visible, they’re out of site and it doubles as bench or purse holder
6 Also get a light (weight) vacuum I use the Shark ultra light deluxe pro vacuum that’s easy easy to carry around your house and vacuum high traffic areas daily or every other day. And I know it sounds like a lot but I think the main reason people don’t like to vacuum is because of lugging around a big heavy vacuum.
So this really helped me a lot and it really doesn’t take much time at all.
You just need to vacuum your high traffic areas where people walk all the time, everyday and it just makes such a huge difference When I walk into a house and see fresh vacuum lines It just gives off a really clean vibe.
7 Another good clean home tip is to get a file organizer from the Target dollar section or where ever you want they are a dollar at Target, that’s where I got mine To organize your receipts so they aren’t all over the place or lost.
I hate when I need to return something and I can’t find a receipt and I’m spending forever looking through all of my purses, and drawers and all over the house.
I like knowing exactly where they are.
So like I said, I got this one from Target and I love it because it has a bunch of sections that I label with all my favorite stores Victoria secret, Ulta, TJ Maxx, Forever XXI, and I have a food category as well and I can always find my receipts when ever I need them.
8 Empty your trash frequently Don’t wait for it to get full and stinky This is such and easy thing to do to make your house clean, make it smell nice.
Just take out the trash it only takes a few seconds to swap out the trash and I think it makes a huge difference
9 Get a letter organizer for important mail and throw away junk mail and magazines right away. Don’t allow yourself to throw it into a junk drawer and deal with it later because we all know later never comes.
I got this really pretty rose gold one from TJ Maxx for five dollars this is perfect for sorting coupons and bills.
10 My last and final tip is a simple one and that is to get an air purifier.
Try the Honeywell one I think it’s a great investment we love it it doubles as a fan which is really nice It purifies the air and makes it smell nice and removes allergens and germs So I will link the exact one we have below for you guys but we love our air purifier So those are my tips for organized and clean home I hope you guys enjoyed our tips.
