8 genius cleaning hacks for super busy moms.
Cleaning your home can be tedious, boring, and long. Once you start, you’ll gradually lose interest as you are always reminded of what exactly you need to take care of. Of course, this isn’t how everyone feels and thinks about cleaning, but many people have difficulties with it. Figuring out how to make it more fun isn’t as easy as it sounds since there’s not a lot you can do. You can play some music to ease the pressure off, but what else? Well, we’re happy to tell you that there are a couple of things you can do. And, we’ll be mentioning some cleaning tips that will help super busy moms keep their house squeaky clean!
Set a Timer and Clean your Butt Off
When, you’re unsure of how long you should be cleaning, or how long it will take, then, you can use a timer. Set it for, let’s say, 2 hours and try to clean as much as possible. Once the timer is up, stop cleaning. If there’s anything that hasn’t been cleaned in time, you can clean it afterward, but only a little bit will be left, and you would have had fun doing so.
This is a great way to speed things up and have fun at the same time!
The longer you avoid cleaning your home, the more dust and stuff will appear, and you’ll have more work the next time you clean. Once a week isn’t too often, and it isn’t too infrequent either. Each time you clean, you won’t have to do it for long because things don’t get too dirty in just a week.
Declutter and Straighten Rooms Before Bed
Cluttering and storing things in corners is a bad habit. We’ve all been there; you clean everything, but as time goes by, you’re a bit lazy to return things to where they should be and soon, you have clutter everywhere. Again, this isn’t a long task; decluttering and straightening rooms take a small amount of time to complete so you’ll be able to do them before bed. And keep your bedsheets straightened too, so they don’t crumble up.
Use Rubber Gloves to Remove Pet Hair
Pet hair isn’t disgusting to everyone, but some people can’t stand it. That’s why when they have a pet, cleaning isn’t as easy. However, the best way to remove pet hair is to wear rubber gloves. Hair clings easier to rubber than to human skin, plus you’re not exposing your own body to potential germs and dust.
Wash, Dry and Fold One Load of Laundry
People often make the mistake of washing multiple loads of laundry in one single day, but this is a problem: You don’t only have more work to do in one day, you won’t have room to dry all of your clothes in time. So some clothes will be wet until the previous batch completely dries.
What you should be doing is washing more often; and only one load of laundry. Once it’s done, you have to dry that load and fold it, no waiting needed.
Clean the Shower While you are in the Shower
If you never paid attention to the state of the shower (or bathtub) after you’re done (especially if you’re a guy), start doing so. All of us leave behind hair, dirt that we washed off, sweat, and everything else in the shower. Naturally, if you don’t clean it, all of that stuff stays, and it’s going to be there the next time you go for a shower.
Why not improve hygiene levels by simply cleaning it while you’re showering? If that’s not your thing, then clean it afterward. Water and some soap will do the trick, and it takes a minute or two to keep it clean on the regular!
Use White Wine Vinegar to Clean your Microwave
Cleaning the microwave is not an activity that people often do. Mainly because they think it’s never going to get dirty or because they know but aren’t grossed out. If you don’t belong to any of these groups, we recommend you grab some vinegar and start cleaning! Although, you will need a microwave cleaner in which you’ll place the vinegar. The fumes will disinfect the microwave, and it’ll be easier for you to clean it!
Line your Baking Trays with Aluminium Foil
What better way to avoid cleaning your shiny baking trays than by preventing the possibility of them getting dirty? Using aluminium foil is a great way to keep your trays clean because, once you’re done, you’ll throw away the foil. Additionally, your trays won’t turn brown. All you have to do after you’re done baking is give the tray a gentle, clean wipe!
