20 Minutes To An Entirely Clean Home
5 Minute Clutter Round Up
Most of the time, a little quick pick up for your home is all it really needs. Before any cleaning routine starts, putting everything in it’s place is the way to start. Keep different baskets or storage containers placed in your home in eye appealing spots. Put items into these container to put away in their proper place when you aren’t pressed for time. This should take about 5 minutes if you move quickly or enlist help from the rest of the family.
5 Minute Wipe Down
Grab your favorite multi-surface duster to quickly cover all the surfaces in your home. A multi-surface duster is perfect to move through all the wood, stone, or glass surfaces in your home without having to waste time switching products. For the kitchen, your favorite anti-bacterial product will work to move quickly throughout the kitchen. Another good product that works well is a natural mixture of vinegar and water to disinfect and clean surfaces. Keep a couple of microfiber rags in hand, move, and wipe.
8 Minute Floors
Making sure you have all the tools available to quickly do your floors is an essential plan to have before starting a quick cleaning routine. A broom and an all in one mop is a great choice for hard floors. Quickly sweep the floor and run the mop over any sticky area. If you need to vacuum and are pressed for time, just vacuum the high traffic areas in the living room or hallways.
2 Minute Refresher
A nice spritz of your favorite room spray or homemade air freshener is the perfect way to complete any home. Create your own natural spray by mixing your favorite essential oil with ¼ cup of water to quickly freshen up any home.
