A clean home doesn’t just happen. As much as we’d all love to have a cleaning genie that does your chores with the snap of a finger, the reality is that we need to be cleaning up after ourselves. As busy as you are through the days and weeks, it’s understandable that the thought of cleaning strikes fear and dread instead of fun and enjoyment. Luckily in the following article, there are some ideas for things you can do to help make your cleaning seem less like a chore.

    Clean While Listening To Music Or A Favorite Podcast

    It’s easy to move when your favorite song comes on the radio. With that in mind, as an easy way to get cleaning every day, you can set up your favorite songs in a 20-30-minute playlist. Setting it for that time will ensure a complete clean in the area you wish. Now you can boogie down while you clean up.

    Set A Timer For A Power Clean Up

    If you're micro cleaning here and there, a good way to feel productive is to set a timer every time you go into a room to see how much you can get done in that time. It can be for just five minutes, ten minutes, or thirty minutes — however much time you have. If your home needs a bit more help, there's nothing better than a power hour to get things back in order.

    Get Someone To Help Along

    Delegating cleaning responsibilities can give us more time to recover or pay attention to other items in our to-do list. Whether it is a partner, a friend, or a person you hire — you won't regret it. We all could use a little help from others.

    Reward Yourself After Your Cleaning Routine

    Just because cleaning is a much-needed chore, doesn’t mean you don’t deserve a reward for doing it. Setting up a reward will help you get through whatever cleaning task is at hand much easier. Whether it’s some quiet time to read a book or some sort of delicious treat, rewards are an easy way to get your cleaning routine off the ground.
