Cleaning Your Home In 15 Minutes A Day

Cleaning Your Home In 15 Minutes A Day

Housework has a way of getting overwhelming quickly - I know this firsthand due to my hectic schedule.  I put a few things off and before I know it I'm facing hours of cleaning just to get it back to normal.  I'm told if I plan carefully and stick to a plan, I can get all of my basic housework done in only about 15 minutes a day, and keep it clean and company-ready all the time. Below are tips to the 15-minute-a-day strategy.

IMPORTANT: Start With A Baseline - You'll have to do that deep cleaning before you start, because otherwise you'll always be playing catch up.  Set a day aside and clean your house from top to bottom.  If you stick to the simple 15-minute-a-day plan from here on out, you'll rarely if ever spend a whole day cleaning again.

This deep cleaning establishes a baseline of clean that you would like to maintain; once you have this baseline, you simply have to take the time each day to keep things in order.

Your Daily Fifteen - Make a list of the main cleaning jobs in your home.  These will usually include vacuuming/floor sweeping, cleaning bathrooms, dusting, washing floors and counters, and laundry.  The things on your list may differ depending on the size of your home and how many people live there, as well as the type of flooring you have.


Select one or two things to do each day.  Smaller jobs such as dusting can be combined with another small job to make up most of your fifteen minutes.  There will be things you need to do every day or every second day that can't only be done weekly-add one of these things onto the main job for the day.

How It Looks - Your weekly cleaning list might look something like this: On Monday, you vacuum the floors.  On Tuesday, you dust, do a load of laundry, and wipe down the counters in the kitchen.  On Wednesday, you clean a bathroom and sweep.  On Thursday you clean a second bathroom and do another load of laundry.  On Friday, you clean the windows and mirrors around the house and wash the kitchen floor.


On each of these days you will add small everyday jobs to the list such as emptying the dishwasher or washing dinner pots.  If you do these things as part of your cleaning time, they won't pile up on you.


Of course, if you have a large home or large family, you may need a little more than 15 minutes a day; you will have to adjust the schedule to your needs.  You will quickly find, though, that housework is never a huge job again.
