Making Time to Clean House When You Have No Time

clean-house-chicago-dreamNo one likes to have a dirty house, but then holidays, kids, cooking, and job all make demands of you, it’s easy to see why housekeeping goes to the back of the line – or falls out altogether. So, what do you do when you need to clean house but don’t have the time? Change your standards.

The 3-Step No-Time-to-Clean Cleaning Plan

1. Do a daily “Clean Sweep.”

Set the timer and get everyone in a different room of the house. Or, give someone a mop or a vacuum. Set the timer for five minutes. Everyone go at it – straighten, put things away, give surfaces a quick dust, vacuum and/or mop.

2. Get a quick vac.

I can’t tell you how much I love my cordless stick vacuum. I can sweep my tile kitchen and hallways and do a quick touch up on carpets in less than 60 seconds. It has settings for both kinds of floors. It’s fast and convenient – which means you’ll use it.

3. Clean it when you see it.

Give each room a one minute cleaning when you go in there. 60 seconds – you can do that. It doesn’t take but about one minute to clean a toilet. Run a brush around the rim and in the bowl. Whip out some all-purpose wipes and go over the exterior surfaces and floor around the commode. There. Done.
