I’ll admit it, we’re not perfect – my household is messy and needs to be tidied up every few days! But there are some really simple things that can make this process easier on you (and your family).
With kids running around the house all day, it’s easy for a home to get messy. These tips will help keep your place clean and tidy all year round.
One of the most important household chores you can do is to wipe up spills as soon as they happen. It saves time and energy, not to mention stress, if you don’t have to spend hours scrubbing at dried-in dirt that has already set in.
You thought easy clean wasn’t for you? Think again. Sofas and armchairs made from stain free fabric are more than just a modern convenience. They offer an extra layer of protection against everyday life, including pets and kids (rarely soft furnishing’s best friends).
This means your new sofa will have many years to enjoy the comfort it provides without worry about stains like sticky fingers, red wine, or pet accidents that can happen at any moment.
Upholstery fabric that’s stain resistant is a real game-changer for any home and is worth the investment.
The easiest way to stay organized in your home is by using baskets and storage containers. I use this strategy when designing spaces because it helps me make sure every room stays clutter-free, even those rooms that are not typically used for storing things like the living room or dining areas.
Cleaning your house every day is a tall order to fill, but the key is breaking it into smaller chunks of time. A 25-minute clean-up routine will give you enough free space in between chores for other tasks and errands that need tending to. You can also include your children and set 5-minute timers or play a ‘cleaning’ song for a quick clean. Turning it into a family activity will make cleaning rooms less daunting and more fun.
As a mom, I know that the laundry pile can seem daunting. But tackling it every day will save you from having to do an entire load of clothes in one go at some later date and forgetting about them for another week or more.
As parents, we have our work cut out when trying to get everyone ready for school on time! This starts with quick morning clean up jobs like making beds, wiping down counters and tables before breakfast is served while getting kids dressed, packing lunches…the list goes on forever really, but there’s always something else if your eyes are openly looking around-but what often gets overlooked is washing those dirty towels after baths/showers because they build up quickly during any given 24 hours.
Even doing just one load a day will take minutes and save you a lot of time in the long run.
I hope you have enjoyed my tips. And in the end, the more cleaning time saved means more free mommy time.
