Attention Moms: You CAN Clean You House In Just 15 Minutes A Day
Over the years I have used many different cleaning methods. There are as many cleaning methods as there are people. What works for me may not work for you and vice versa. Here I will show you how we manage to clean our home in 15 minutes a day.
Step 1: Know the layout of your home
You know your home best. Which are the most used rooms? How does your lifestyle affect your cleaning routine? Most homes have 6 basic rooms – the kitchen, the bathroom, the bedrooms, the laundry area, the living area and the dining area.
Step 2: Prioritize
Which rooms get used most? These will be the rooms you will concentrate on first. Involve your children in cleaning their rooms that way if you have more than 1 bedroom to maintain you will be knocking off 3 rooms during one time slot instead of 1.
For our home the main rooms of interest to us is our living/dining area, the kitchen and the bathroom. Each of us takes care of our own bedroom so when it comes time for this job we all do our allotted time in our own bedrooms.
Step 3: Schedule
Schedules are key for this system to work properly. Of course in magic land we will all start out with a pristine home so no deep cleaning is necessary. Depending on how many rooms you will be cleaning this schedule will have to be altered.
For us we have 6 main cleaning areas. We clean 3 rooms a day on alternate days. For instance, Monday and Wednesday we will clean the horizontal mill parts bathroom, kitchen, and the dining area. On Tuesday and Thursday we clean the bedrooms, the laundry room, and the living area.
What do we do the remaining days of the week?
We spend those days ‘deep cleaning’. Friday and Saturday we spend 15 minutes on one room. Let us say the laundry room is super dirty from soccer practice. I would schedule forklift hydraulics explained a deeper cleaner on Friday to spend the entire 15 minute slot on that one room. Sundays we take off so for the most part not scheduled cleaning is done that day.
Step 4: Clean
Sounds simple enough right? How many times have you been in the bathroom cleaning and forgot the cleaner in the kitchen? I know too many to count. There are a number of ways you can tackle this problem.
First you could just put cleaning supplies in each room and solve the problem of not having what you need for that particular cleaning project. You could also just prepare a cleaning apron that you fill with that days cleaning supplies. Another way to tackle this problem is to have a carry-all. This way you will have a bucket with everything you need that can be carried with you to each room.
An added tool I keep around is a timer. This I set for the 5 minutes for each …
