Consider these must-dos for a cleaner and safer home
To live a healthy lifestyle, there are habits that we must develop such as allotting time for exercise and making healthier food choices. This applies to the home, too! If we follow a couple of reminders, we can achieve a space that's not only pretty but safe to live in, too!
Let these five easy steps guide and inspire you:
Recycling may be challenging at first but once you get used to it, you'll be thinking twice before throwing anything away! Start by segregating your trash and having biodegradable and non-biodegradable bins. Check the items that you're throwing out. If you see plastic bottles and jars, you may repurpose these into decor pieces and storage solutions.
We don't want to come home to clutter. It's best to schedule a regular decluttering session. You can do this monthly. Start in your bedroom and closet before proceeding to the different areas of the house. Double check all items and see which ones you can donate.
Clean as you go
Avoid leaving dishes in the sink and condiments on the dining table. Practice Clean As You Go to keep your space spotless and organized. Delaying your tasks will only result to double the clutter to deal with.
Before buying anything new, think of the things that you already have and try to work around it. Turn old clothes into pillowcases or vegetable peels into fertilizers. There are so many recycling ideas that you can do. Try to simplify your life and you can live in a happy and healthy home.
Schedule maintenance checks
Does your roof have leaks? Is your kitchen drain clogged? You can easily work on minor home repairs if you are armed with basic how-tos. Keep in mind that if you are dealing with major renovation projects, it's best to hire professional help.
