When it comes to maintaining a clean home and dust-free living environment, it can be quite challenging.
Most adults are busy with their work and the home suffers because of their tiredness (and of course, laziness as well). What’s even more challenging and tough is if you live in a small home.
If you live in a small space and it’s cluttered, then the mess may very well look much worse than it does in a bigger space. On that note, it is much more important to maintain cleanliness in your small home.
So here are the 5 proper ways that you can try out to keep your house sparkly and clean!
Decluttering your furniture, wardrobe, tech goods and more are one of the toughest jobs – but you’ll get the hang of it soon!
When you’re decluttering, it’s best that you use a couple of boxes to place the items you might want to give away or throw away. For each item that you might think isn’t useful for your day-to-day, consider why you’re still keeping them and whether or not that item is a want or a need in your everyday life.
2. Organise your clothes
Aside from decluttering, you should also look into the current situation of your closet or wardrobe. If you leave everything messy, you might be hiding away clothes that you aren’t even planning on using.
There should be a way to organize your clothes so you know where everything is. For one, the clothes you wear most often should be the most accessible. Also, donate or even sell the clothes that you don’t plan on wearing in the near future. Plus, the next time you are go for clothing-shopping, try to think twice before you purchase your clothes!
3. Clean as you go, every time!
How often have you waited until later to clean your dishes?
The ‘clean as you go’ is a habit that you should develop so that it will be easier for you to maintain your space’s cleanliness. It’s always better to get rid of the mess as soon as possible.
4. Stick to a schedule
If you do not have the time to clean your house, then you should create and stick to a cleaning schedule. If you are busy on the weekdays, try to squeeze in your cleaning days on the weekends instead!
Aside from knowing which day and time you are going to clean your house, you should also list down which area and what exactly you should clean.
5. Don’t be too hard on yourself
If you’re a naturally messy person, you can start slowly. But the important thing here is not to be too hard on yourself — after all, a new habit takes time to form.
