As the days shrink shorter and the weather gets colder it can be tough to find the motivation to clean your house. We have prepared some tips to make this easier through these coming months using the 1 Minute Cleaning trick.
The 1 Minute Cleaning trick is simple. You pick a small task or item that needs cleaning that will take 1-2 minutes and do that. This will usually motivate you to keep on cleaning which is great. However, if that is all you do, you still did something!
As always, we are happy to help with whatever your needs may be! Checking out our booking page here!
1. Dust One Thing
It only takes a minute to choose one thing and dust it. You can either use a feather duster, a dust spray and a rag, or a dust wipe. Here are some things you can dust quickly:
- TV Screens
- Ceiling Fans ( These always need some extra love)
- Air Vents
2. Clean a Mirror
A clean mirror makes a room look cleaner. If you don’t have glass cleaner and paper towels, try vinegar and old newspaper. This is a lot less expensive and it works just as well.
3. Change Towels
Fresh towels make a room smell great, whether they’re in the kitchen or the bathroom. It takes less than a minute, and it freshens up the whole room.
4. Take Care of Plants
A minute is more than enough time to care for your favorite houseplants. If they need water, fill a pitcher so you can water them all faster. Take a pair of scissors with you to snip off dead vines or leaves. Plants are vital to a thriving household, take care of them!
5. Wipe Down Forgotten Areas
Grab a wet washcloth and quickly wipe down areas that might be forgotten when cleaning. Areas like:
• Remote controls
• Light switches
6. Shake out a Floor Mat
Floor mats are sometimes forgotten during cleaning. If you have an extra minute, grab a mat or two and shake them out outside. This will reduce the amount of dust in your home as well as keep those mats fresh and clean.
