The Best House Cleaning Shortcuts

When you live in a large house, or even a small one with plenty of clutter and a busy schedule, the thought of cleaning can be daunting. With some simple tips and some help from your friends at Misty Clean, you don’t have to dread your chore list any longer! Following these simple house cleaning shortcuts will make everyday tidying much simpler.

Plan Your Route

No matter what the size of your home is, one of the biggest mistakes that you can make while cleaning is to spend too much time moving back and forth out of the room you’re trying to focus on. Whether you’re taking individual pieces of trash to a bin as you find them, or putting away individual items rather than gathering them all to redistribute later. Plan a route and stick to it. In a two-story home, it’s best to start on the top floor in the backmost room and work your way forward.

Keep Your Cleaning Tools Together

One of the best tips possible is to have everything you need with you and easy to reach. Using an old paint bucket with a wrap around tool kit is a great way to do this – that way you’ll have all of your cleaning materials together for easy access. You can also keep a bag for trash in here to make collecting it all easier than ever.

Don’t Get Distracted Putting Things Away

We recommend bringing along your cleaning bucket plus an empty laundry basket, this way as you find misplaced items you can add them to your basket and put them away as you get to each room, rather than making separate trips.

Keep Closets Organized

Hall closets, in particular, can quickly become a den of clutter and chaos. To fight their rapid decline, finding creative storage solutions is a must. Try a cube organizer with set cubes for each person in the household to keep items like hats and gloves contained. Over the door hanging storage, like a shoe separator, is another excellent option as you can keep umbrellas, leashes, and other supplies in easy to see sections.

Create A Central Cleaning Station

Along with your bucket, having a central station to keep backup cleaning products, chore lists, and other materials stored is a great way to make sure everyone knows where to find the tools they need and what tasks to do. If you live in a large home, it can help to have one station on each floor.
