Keeping Your Home Clean Between Cleanings

Get Rid Of Clutter
Clear clutter on a daily basis. Find time to pick up and discard unused items.
Storing unused items only make your home more cluttered. You can have more space if you use a large plastic container to tidy up magazines, books and toys. If you have kids, you need to teach them to throw away trash.

Get Rid Of Clutter
Clear clutter on a daily basis. Find time to pick up and discard unused items.
Storing unused items only make your home more cluttered. You can have more
space if you use a large plastic container to tidy up magazines, books and toys. If
you have kids, you need to teach them to throw away trash.

Have A Place For Each Item
Decide on where you want to keep each item and ensure everyone in your home
is informed. This will make your space look neater and reduce the de-cluttering
work you have to do.

Use A Cleaning Checklist And The Right Equipment
A checklist is provided in Chapter 7. Ensure that the equipment and materials
needed to clean each room are available and make sure you use the appropriate
techniques for each room.

Clean Stains And Spills As Soon As They Happen
Stains on furniture and delicate fabrics can become more difficult to remove
the longer they stay. They are much easier to clean when they are still wet. The
same thing applies to stains on kitchen counters, tables, ovens and sinks.

Delegate Cleaning And Organizing Tasks
To reduce your work load, teach every member of your family the necessary
skills like sweeping and mopping. It will lighten your load and become a fun activ-
ity for the family.
