10 Cleaning Secrets That Will Help You Get the

Job Done Fast

Most everyone would like their home to be clean, but some find the thought of that to be a bit overwhelming. Here are some short cuts that will help you get the job done fast without you getting frustrated. 1. Make a regular cleaning schedule: When you keep up with your basic routines, it’s unlikely that things will get out of control. By setting aside specific time for cleaning, you will gradually get yourself into a rhythm of upkeep of your house. Therefore, all homemaking tasks will not take so long or seem so overwhelming. 2. Dress for the task: What you wear affects your cleaning speed and efficiency. Dress in comfortable clothing designed for the task at hand. Protect your body against chemicals using gloves, goggles, knee pads and supportive shoes. Wear an apron or cleaning clothes in order to boost your speed and efficiency. 3. Stay focused: It’s so easy to get lost in distractions or bogged down in perfection when cleaning and spend too much time on a task you intended to do for 10 minutes. Set a timer for each task in order to stay focused and motivated to complete the task at hand and move quickly through the entire process. 4. Clean as you go: You can save so much time by cleaning as you go. At first it might seem like you are always cleaning. Eventually doing so, however, will become second nature. For instance, you can wipe out your sink after brushing your teeth, clean the shower while taking a shower, or throw laundry in the wash before starting breakfast. 5. Keep your cleaning supplies in a convenient place: If you have to run upstairs for cleaning supplies you need downstairs, you might get distracted on your way up. Pretty soon you might be checking Facebook. When you keep everything you need to clean the downstairs bathroom right there in the bathroom, it is more likely you’ll finish cleaning without getting distracted. 6. Clean in the most logical order: If you need to clean the entire house top to bottom, think of a logical order in which you can complete the task. For example, dust before vacuuming. Any dust that falls to the floor in the process will then be vacuumed up. 7. Lighten your load: When you have less stuff, you have less to clean…and more space for what you need. When all your closets and cabinets are stuffed, trying to get and stay organized can be frustrating. Donate items to charity or have a garage sale to get rid of the items you no longer need or use. Your cleaning routine will go faster when you have less to clean and move around. 8. Find a motivator: Besides heading off boredom, motivators are helpful when it comes to preventing distractions. For instance you can play your favorite music or listen to books on tape while you’re cleaning, so you’re not distracted by other TO DOs. 9. Use proper tools: Invest in good cleaning tools. You can’t clean quickly and effectively if you don’t have the right tools. Keep all of your cleaning supplies in a portable caddy. 10. Black plastic trash bag: Take a large black trash bag with you, as you make rounds. Empty floor sweepings, the contents of all waste baskets, and any other debris into the trash bag before dumping the bag into the outside garbage container. Back to Cleaning Secrets Index
