With the kids heading back to school, it is time to help maximize the cleaning efforts in your home! In this article, we want to share some tips on how you can decrease your time cleaning and how to help keep your home organized. Below are 3 easy tricks you can implement now to maximize your cleaning efforts.

  1. De-clutter. Start by throwing away any clutter that you may have accumulated. This will help your home look and feel more open and clean. Start by going through loose papers and bills, and recycle the papers you do not need. An area that we often forget is de-cluttering the garage. Organize tools, bikes and lawn and garden equipment to help keep the garage looking clean. Discard old or unused materials properly will also help eliminate clutter that can pile up in a garage space.
  2. Set A Cleaning Timer. You don’t need to spend hours cleaning. Set a timer for 30 minute increments. Once the timer goes off, stop what you are doing. Do this a few times throughout the day or even in the week. If you only focus on cleaning for those 30 minutes, you will find that you get more done in less time!
  3. Clean As You Go. After every meal clean the dishes right away. This will help from the dish pile up we all tend to get in the sink. When cooking food on the grill, once cooled, scrub the grill grates with a nylon cleaning brush.
