Start with a list
Even though you know your own home better than anyone, it’s easier to work from a list. Write down everything you need to do in each room of the house so you can get to work. Your chores list will make it easier for you to do things in order so you can work through it quickly.
Learn to live clutter-free
One of the easiest ways to keep your home clean is to make sure there’s less to clean. Decluttering your home and making sure everything has a place will help you clean your home much quicker, having it look spotless easily. It’s good to get into the habit of tidying things away before bed so that it’s all neat in the morning.
Invest in good cloths and cleaners
The best types of cloths and rags for getting rid of dust and dirt are microfiber cloths. They’ll help pick up dust easily, so you can make light work of wiping down surfaces. Speed clean your kitchen counters, cabinets and any other surfaces and tables for a job that will take minutes. Also, make sure you use cleaners that are effective, helping to keep things clean and sanitary, and perhaps add a nice fragrance too.
Make light work of vacuuming
Vacuuming is one of those tasks that can take longer than you think, and it’s no fun lugging a heavy vacuum around. A stick vacuum is lightweight and will make it easy to keep all of your floors and stairs dust-free. If you can, try to vacuum regularly throughout the week to make this a quick and easy final part of your speed clean.
Be smart with your time
Some things can be left to soak and clean while you get to work on other things. Leaving bathroom cleaner to soak your bath, shower, etc. while you wipe down other surfaces can mean you spend less time overall cleaning them – and the same goes for your dishes too. Over time you’ll come to learn which tasks can save you time, making it easier for you to get a lot done in that precious 60 minutes.
Keeping your home cozy clean is something that takes a bit of planning, and with a bit of daily maintenance, you can stay on top of things. Perfect your 60-minute cleaning routine so that you can spend more time enjoying your home.
