Daily Cleaning Habits
1. Bed
Make the bed.
Details:
Tidiness begets tidiness. A crisply made bed makes the whole room seem more orderly, which makes it less likely that you’ll let other things -- such as clothes and papers -- pile up around it.
2. Clutter
Manage clutter
Details:
Whenever you leave a room, take a quick look around for anything that isn’t where it should be. Pick it up and put it where it belongs. Insist that everyone in the household do the same.
3. Mail
Sort the mail
Details:
Take a few minutes to open, read, and sort mail as soon as you bring it inside. Keep a trash bin near your sorting area for junk mail. Drop other mail into one of four in-boxes: personal correspondence, bills, catalogs, and filing.
4. Spills
Wipe Up Spills While They’re Fresh
Details:
Whether it’s tomato sauce on the cooktop or makeup on the bathroom counter, almost anything is faster and easier to remove if you attend to it immediately.
5. Kitchen floor
Sweep the Kitchen Floor
Details:
Every evening, once you’ve finished washing up after dinner, sweep the floor. This will keep tough-to-clean dirt and grime from building up, which will make the weekly mopping much quicker.
6. Pots and dishes
Clean as you cook
Details:
Instead of filling the sink with pots and dishes, wash them or put them in the dishwasher as you prepare a meal.
