7 Tips for the Beginning Cleaner
If you read this blog then you know cleaning is not one of my favorite things to do. I get that some people find it therapeutic. Others enjoy the success of getting something really clean. I am one of those cleaners who wants to do it fast and do it right the first time. This means that I need the right products at the right time. I need products that work well.
Whether you are a cleaning beginner or someone who has perfected the art of cleaning, Zep makes it easy! As a beginning cleaner there are several tips that can really help you out!
7 TIPS FOR BEGINNING CLEANERS
1. Plan your day or pick something to clean each day.
By picking one thing a day to clean, you should not get overwhelmed too much. We have a schedule in our house of what we clean and which days we do it on so that everything gets cleaned.
2. Clean as you go.
If you make a mess, clean it up. Reinforce this with all members of your family and you will find cleaning day to be much easier. We take 15 minutes every day to do a quick sweep of the house to make certain that everything is as it should be.
3. Clean the bathroom when you clean your face/teeth/hands at night.
This was the best thing to do with our family. Every night when anyone brushes their teeth or washes their face, they also clean around in the bathroom as well. We make it easy by leaving cleaning materials under the sinks in all of our bathrooms.
4. Circle around.
Start at the right or the left and just clean in circle. In our kitchen, we start at the refrigerator and work our way around to the other side of the kitchen.
5. Make your bed daily.
If your bed is made, your room automatically looks a little cleaner. This could easily inspire you to keep the rest of it clean as well. This works well for my kids.
6. Set a timer.
I tend to get distracted when cleaning so we set 30 minute timers. We clean for the entire 30 minutes and do nothing else except the cleaning. This works well and keeps us all focused.
7. Conquer clutter areas.
We have found that by slowly conquering each area where clutter seems to build up that we now tend to put things in their place. The key is creating a place for everything.
