Cleaning Tips & Ideas

“Quick Tips to Help You Clean Your Home Faster”


Thirty seconds:

  • Prevent soap scum buildup in your shower with a few quick squirts of daily shower spray.

  • Swipe the bathroom counter with a disinfectant wipe, clearing it of hairspray, toothpaste and soap scum.

  • Shake out entryway rugs to rid them of excess dirt and minimize traipsing it throughout your home.

Two minutes:

  • Gather stray clutter into a laundry basket. Just be sure to put everything in its proper place at a later time.

  • Sweep high-traffic areas, like the entryway or bathroom floor.

  • Spritz the bathroom mirror with glass cleaner and wipe dry with a microfiber cloth.

  • And at the expense of sounding like your mother, make your bed.

Five minutes:

  • Start a load of laundry.

  • Wash the bathroom floor. Clean-up is simple if you have already swept it during your two-minute hiatus.

  • Wipe down kitchen countertops. You don’t want harmful germs finding their way into your food preparations.

  • Sort through your pile of mail and toss the junk.  Remember to shred and recycle!

Busy lifestyles necessitate taking small, time-efficient steps when it comes to maintaining an orderly and clean house. If you need an extra hand, call The Maids and experience the healthiest, most thorough housecleaning in the industry.

    Great tips! Thank you for sharing, in summer the days are longer, the messes are bigger and I can use all the time-savers in the world!
    My favorite tip (learned as a new mom when Logan was just born) was ALWAYS do the dishes before you go to bed- no matter how tired you are, to start the day with an empty (or as close to empty as possible) sink and clean dishes is always awesome!
