9 Smart Tips to Keep Your Home Spotless

August 5, 2016 1:49 am


Nobody likes to spend hours cleaning house—and sometimes, there are few hours to spare. How is it some seem to have a knack for keeping their homes looking spotless in no time at all?

Country Living magazine recently polled home bloggers to come up with nine tricks:

Take Your Shoes Off – Shoes carry dirt and germs. Mandate the family remove them when coming in the door—and put up a sign in the entryway asking visitors to do the same.

Make the Bed – Even if the bedrooms are not picture-perfect, a neat bed pulls together the room.

Squeegee the Shower Every Time – Squeegeeing only takes about 20 seconds, and it keeps the glass clean and shining.

Clean the Bathroom Sink – Quickly swipe the sink with a wipe to keep it sparkling. Keep the wipes handy under the sink.

Wipe Down Kitchen Counters – Use a homemade solution of one part vinegar with three parts water to keep counters clean.

Clean Up as You Go – Wash the pots and put away ingredients as you finish while you cook—the goal is to have nothing to do after dinner but put plates in the dishwasher.

Do a Five-Minute Cleanup Before Bed – Five minutes before bedtime, put everything back in its place—pick up the dog's toys, hang up jackets and put away the mail, for instance.

Put Your Clothes Away – Every master bedroom has one chair that starts off empty on Monday and ends up covered with clothes by Friday. Before you go to bed, put them away.

Open a Door or Window – Letting in fresh air helps keep your home feeling fresh.
