We know it’s hard to keep the house clean with a busy schedule, kids, and pets, especially in the summer months. Here are some more reasonable options you can try this summer to keep your home clean from the home cleaning experts.
5 Things Your Family Can Do Keep a Cleaner Home
- Put Items Away After Use – This may seem like a simple tip, but trust us it is a crucial one. We often take things out and don’t put them away after use adults are just as guilty as children on this one. So, try to be a good example and put away items when you are done with them, and ask your children to do the same. This keeps the clutter at a minimum and frees up space for more fun and activities.
- Set A Timer – Set a timer to pick up the house. Even something as sort as 5-10 minutes of “clean-up” time a few times a week can really be effective and fun for your kids to help with the cleaning of the house. Make it a game with them and for those minutes everyone helps out – picking up toys, wiping the bathroom counters, making beds, taking out the trash, vacuuming, or dusting can be easy tasks kids can help with and gets them involved.
- Keep Dirty Paws and Shoes Outside – Ask your kids to take off their shoes at the door or in the garage before they enter the main part of your home. As far as your fur family members, keep a clean towel or pet wipes next to the door and wipe their paws and coat before they come inside. This will keep some of the outside dirt where it belongs, outside.
- Clean Up Messes Quickly – Don’t wait! Accidents happen with children and pets, but waiting to clean up messes can make what was an easy clean up into a more difficult task. We suggest keeping a spray bottle of vinegar and water on hand for quick, eco-friendly cleanup.
