After a long day, there’s no worse feeling than opening the door to your home only to find that a mess awaits you. Sure, sometimes there’s no way to avoid this—like if you had a really late night or had a friends over—but as often as possible, I strive to keep my apartment feeling fresh and clean. Here’s how I do it:
- Set a cleaning schedule: A few months back, I shared my cleaning checklist that I follow religiously. Just pick a day that works best for you and deem it your cleaning day. Turn on your favorite music, buy some colorful cleaning products, and tidy away.
- Be open to touch-ups: Maybe you spill some milk on your counter or you go to the beach and leave your entryway all sandy. Whatever the case, your home is likely to need some touch-ups here and there between your weekly clean day. Typically, I vacuum my entryway, sweep my bathroom, and wipe off my countertops and kitchen table once between clean days. I know, I know—you’re thinking, ‘ugh, more cleaning?’ But trust me, this will only make your once weekly cleaning day easier!
So go ahead, give it a try, and let me know how you like it.
