That statement is music to my ears, and believe it or not I hear it quite a bit. It’s quite the juggling act, I’ll admit. To balance being a full-time working woman, full-time mom, full-time wife, cook, and housekeeper.
Luckily, my husband helps quite a bit. But I have a few secrets to keep your house clean with minimal time required.
Yes, you heard me right. A clean house with minimal time required. Which means it works for me even though I work a lot. But you can use these tips if you’re a stay-at-home mom too.
1. ONE TOUCH RULE
Once you’ve touched something to put it away, your goal should always be to put it in its proper home. This will save you so much time and hassle, trust me. Make this goal a priority.
2. HAVING CLEANING SUPPLIES ACCESSIBLE
Make cleaning as easy as possible for yourself by making cleaning stations all over your house. Now I keep a small cleaning basket in every bathroom. You need to do this right now, it’s a game changer.
Start with a caddy to hold everything. Add a rag, Soft Scrub, toilet brush, and Clorox wipes. That’s pretty much it.
3. DO LAUNDRY EVERYDAY
I know no one likes to do laundry, but doing it every day ensures that laundry doesn’t become a thing. I put in a load of laundry every night after the kids go to bed. Then I do something I need to do: meal prep, work from home and… you know, the essentials.
In the morning, I put the clothes away as we’re getting ready. Since I do laundry every day, this takes less than 10 minutes because the loads are small.
4. GET EASY STORAGE
It may seem like an easy solution to dump all of your kids' stuff in bins, but the reality is that it always looks messy.
The secret? Bin storage behind cabinets.
There you have it. Now you know all my house cleaning secrets!
