Cleaning is a topic that I write a lot about on the blog. Lots of mommy bloggers choose this topic. It’s a universal task in our mommy lives so it seems seems like an easy subject to talk at length about.
March and the return of spring means the return of spring cleaning. There are a lot of lists and suggestions out there, but I like the KISS method.
First up in my arsenal of posts is the:
The A-Z List of Life Changing Cleaning Tips For Every MomMe has a great list of ideas, tips and tricks for every mommy. IF you’re looking for information this is where to go first.
If you haven’t found what you’re looking for I also complied some quick suggestions in my post Strategies that take some of the time and pain away:
Step 1: Pick key areas of your house that are the most used but take the least amount of time to clean. For me it’s a quick swish and swipe of the bathrooms and a load of dishes in the kitchen. I’d keep it to about 4-5 cleaning tasks a day so you can finish all of them without feeling pressured.
Step 2: Set yourself a reminder to do your tasks. Without prompting you’ll get distracted.
Step 3: Schedule time on the calendar to do your cleaning. Try to keep it at a regular time of the day if possible so you can get into the habit of knowing that at such and such time you’ll be cleaning. Bonus if you set a timer for yourself and be satisfied with what you get done in a limited amount of time.
