These five daily cleaning tasks will help you maintain a clean home.
Having five daily cleaning tasks has been a great way for me to stay on top of things in our home. Have you ever felt completely overwhelmed by your home? Today, I want to encourage you to try doing these five daily tasks. I am confident that this simple routine will help you overcome the overwhelm in your home.
If you feel overwhelmed by the idea of starting all five, start with one and then slowly add in the other four. Rhythms take repetition so be willing to give this some time.
5 Daily Cleaning Tasks
Do a morning pick up.
During the morning pick up, I do the following:
Make sure the beds are made.
I make our bed and the kids make their beds. With the kids’ beds, I am not looking for perfection, just for them to make them look nice. Having our bed made makes such a difference in the day.
Wipe down the bathroom.
Keep the bathroom cleaner under the bathroom sink so you can easily wipe down the bathroom every morning. Normally, I do this right after I get ready. It really helps maintain a clean bathroom. This is not when I do a deep clean, it is literally just wiping down the counter, sink, and toilet quickly.
Do a load of laundry.
Growing up, my mom always did laundry every day. It was part of her routine so it has always been what I do. Since we lean more towards a minimalist wardrobe, this is helpful too. It really is not bad doing a load of laundry a day.
Wipe down the counters.
After breakfast, lunch, and dinner do a quick wipe of the counters. You can keep a cleaner under the sink with some microfiber cloths or bar towels to help make this easy. Doing this in the evening will help you be able to wake up to a picked up house.
Check the floors.
Every evening, my husband or I do a quick clean of the main floors. It is super fast but helps us cut down on the dirt on our laminate floors. On a weekly basis, I do a cleaner on them. However, on a daily basis, I do a very quick sweep.
Do an evening pick up.
The evening pick up is essential because it will help you keep the clutter down. Usually, before bed, our family watches a show together and then we do our bedtime routines. Before we watch the show, we all do a very quick pick up of the house. Their rooms may stay cluttered, but this helps our main areas remain clean.
