4 Secrets Of An Impeccably Clean Home
Master these tricks and wow your visitors
Nowadays, everybody seem to lead fast-paced lives. We're always rushing to catch an early morning meeting, working extra hours on the weekend and for some, taking care of their kids.
With all these on our plate, it can be difficult to find the time or energy to keep the house clean. However, if you let the house go messy for a long time, getting it back in order can be a daunting task. Not to mention, your living area becomes an uninviting space for visiting friends and family.
Don't worry, all hope is not lost, we've come up with four things you can do to keep your home safe and spotless:

Buy less, clean less
Whether you're a minimalist or an ordinary consumer, having smart shopping habits can't hurt. When you think about it, bringing in a smaller amount of things into your home means less things to clean. For example, it would be easier to keep a knickknack-free countertop spotless than one with a lot of items that collect dust and grime.
RL Tip: A good rule of thumb to follow is to never get something off the shelves just because it's on sale or free.
Have a proper place for everything
Keep clutter at bay by returning everything to its home immediately after using it. Whether it's a pair of shoes you wore that day or a toy the kids played with, it's easier to put one thing back in place rather than having to do it with ten items all at once.
RL Tip: When purchasing must-haves, think about where you're going to put it at home. If you can't find a spot for it, it's better to skip it.

Tidy little by little
Which task sounds easier: quickly wiping surfaces after cooking one meal or washing one week's worth of dishes? Since it takes up less time than trying to finish everything in a single day, you're bound to do a much thorough job with managing household chores.
Opt for multifunctional furniture
Pieces like storage ottomans and tables with drawers are great for putting away books, magazines and remote controls that are normally laying around the living area. It's also an easy way to quickly hide things you brought out when guests unexpectedly come over.
