Tricks for Keeping Your Home Clean Longer
Make your hard work pay off longer with these helpful tips
Whether you take on the task of cleaning on your own or you do it with the aid of a roommate, it still remains to be a tough challenge that requires a lot of work—by the end of it, you’re usually beat. To make the time you spent tidying up your home worth every second, there are simple hacks you can do to keep it spotless for a few more days. Check them out below:
1. Get doormats for every door and use them.
While you would rather place a decorative mat on your front door for aesthetic purposes, it’s better to go for a functional piece. A rough mat with bristles can help get grime off shoes before someone steps into your home.
2. Or avoid wearing shoes indoors entirely.
Prohibiting outdoor shoes from being used indoors can drastically cut dust found in your home. If you aren't comfortable with going barefoot all the time, try wearing morning socks or slippers—just make sure you don't use it beyond the foyer.
3. Clean as you go while cooking.
Instead of waiting until you’re done prepping dinner, try tidying and wiping down counters in between cutting ingredients. This helps make the post-cooking clean up much easier and you’re sure that every corner is cleaned thoroughly because you’ve gone over every surface a couple of times already.
4. Get rid of your window screens.
If you’re not fond of opening your windows, then your screens are subject to trap dirt and moisture from outdoor elements. Maintain cleaner windows by removing the screens permanently.
5. Keep a sponge near the sink.
For the bathroom, it can be quite handy to keep a sponge near the sink to be able to give your vanity a quick wipe down in case of stray hairs, toothpaste droplets, or small puddles of water.
