5 Easy Must-Dos for a Spic-and-Span Home

Bring order to chaos with these genius tricks!

Every homeowner intends to keep their home impeccably clean. However, once our schedules get busy and work starts to interfere with chores, our spaces tend to be left in disarray. 

There's no need to worry as you can still breeze through cleaning by designing a simple system of easy-to-do tasks. To help you out, we've listed down five easy must-dos that you can start adding to your daily routine! 

1. Sort through the mail. 

If there is one form of clutter that can easily take over the home—it's papers. Avoid having to go through piles of flyers, bills, and letters by making it a habit to sort the mail everyday. Start by tossing out unimportant ones (i.e. shopping brochures, promotional pamphlets) then going through the rest of the envelopes one by one. 

2. Fold the clean laundry. 

If you have a freshly washed stack of clothes ready to be put away, consider folding them immediately. Doing so keeps you from having to do a more tedius chore of going through a week's worth of clothes and it prevents clutter from building up, too! 

3. Clean splatters off of mirrors.  

Believe it or not, a thorough wipe down of mirrors can instantly make your space look brighter. You don't need fancy rags or cleaners—it can be as easy as cleaning foamy toothpaste with a tissue or dabbing off makeup stains on your vanity with a few quick swipes. 

4. Clear out your nightstand. 

It can very easy to forget tidying up the nightstand, however, it's still important that we try to keep it in tip-top shape. Taking out last night's water glass, placing back your phone chargers and glasses in the drawers and straightening up your bedtime reads are just some of the things you can start with. 

5. Organize your entryway. 

From the jackets the kids wear to school to the backpacks, and footwear, the foyer can easily turn into a big mess. Keep it neat and welcoming by making sure the outerwear are hung up properly and the shoes are placed in their designated bins.
