It’s strange how quickly the day can pass you by!
Your to-do list may include only two or three things, but as you enter the day, you find tangential items to suck your time up and keep you occupied for far longer than you anticipated. We understand. Maybe you lose your wallet and your keys for a while, looking under and inside everything with an underneath or an interior only to find them both in your right hand, and company’s going to be there in twenty minutes and you haven’t cleaned up yet.
In a world like this, it’s important to save time when you can. It’s why we’ve made our cordless vacuum cleaner so simple, so light, and so easy to use. In the spirit of the efficiency mission, here are some tips to get the house clean in time, with a minute or two to sit on your couch.
Quick Cleaning Tips
Wipe surfaces once with minimal cleaner
Your instinct is to pile on the cleaning solution when you’re in a hurry to clean your surfaces, but wiping once will kill the bacteria and usually remove the mess. Excessive cleaner will leave visible residue.
Wear an apron
Seem silly? Not as silly as ruining your outfit with bleach, or soaking yourself with water. Let the apron bear the brunt of your cleaning frenzy, and toss it aside when you’re done. It will save you time not worrying about getting anything on your outfit.
Organize your cleaning supplies every time
Make sure that you always know exactly where each type of cleaner you use is at all times, and group all your cleaners together. That way there’s never a scramble, and you can approach the cleaning methodically.
Move from area to area; don’t haphazardly clean random parts of each room on instinct because you see a mess somewhere. Take it one room at a time, and go from dry to wet, i.e. dust first, then wipe; sweep first, then mop, etc. A routine is the path to efficiency.
And when push comes to shove, if you need your home to look tidy for guests, get creative! If the dishwasher is full, throw the rest of your dishes in the oven. No one will see them there! (Note: This only works if you don’t plan on cooking for your guests).
