How to Keep a House Clean if You Have Children

How to Keep a House Clean if You Have Children | Misty Clean
House cleaning tasks will stick with your children if you teach them young

The notion may be hard to conceive, but you can teach your tiny tikes about the importance of cleanliness. Children are like sponges, and they absorb any skills that you teach them early in life. Often, children love initiatives and rewards. Tell your children that you’ll be able to take them to their favorite places if the house is clutter-free. We know that keeping a house clutter-free with children seems impossible, but it is indeed possible. Check out these tips on how to keep a house clean if you’re a parent with small children.

Lay Down Playtime Laws

During playtime, children love to take out a bunch of toys at once. Their imagination runs wild as sensory overload happens. What you can do is teach them to take out one toy at a time, or at least put toys away that they’re not actively using. If you make this a routine and set this as an expectation, you’ll be surprised at how quickly your children pick up on this. 

Put Everything in Its Proper Place

A house stays clutter-free if there are designated storage areas. Think about investing in wooden bins for toys. To help your children understand where to put things, you can label them. This technique will enforce the idea that everything has its proper place, and keeping the house clean is a matter of importance.

Make Cleaning Fun

Okay, so depending on who you ask, house cleaning isn’t the most fun activity. However, you can make it a routine to look forward to whether you’re cleaning alone, cleaning with your partner, or your children are involved. Turn up the music and turn house cleaning into a dance party. Trust us. It’ll make the task less tedious.
