Maintaining a clean home without wasting too much time on all your cleaning chores is probably one of the biggest mysteries out there. It has everything to do with how you manage your time. I have had a pretty hard time creating a cleaning schedule that helped me maintain the cleanliness of my home without having to waste my weekend trapped inside.

But I Figured It Out!

After years of trying – I finally figured out how to create the perfect cleaning schedule. If you want to enjoy a spotless home and still have a lot of free time then I will show you exactly what I do!

I always knew that I had to find a way to manage my free time so that I don’t have to spend my Saturdays’ and Sundays doing chores. And since I am busy all day – it seemed impossible, however, I still figured it out!

– Be Organized

Always be mindful and never place an object where it’s not supposed to sit. For example, if I grab a glass of water and place it on my coffee table – when I am done drinking it, I always return it to my kitchen.

When I am getting ready in the morning, I always fold back all the clothes I thought I would put on and I place them back in the wardrobe. I never pile them in my bedroom!

That way your home will always be organized which will help you when it’s time to clean because your home won’t be cluttered.

– Never leave dirty dishes in the sink

Either go get a dishwasher and use it or start hand washing all your dirty dishes after you are done using them. Leave dirty dishes in the sink is a dangerous game because they will eventually start piling up… and all the leftover food and sauces will dry making them so much harder to remove. This means that you will spend a lot more time washing them – and you do not want to waste your time!

– Dust every four days

Dusting is inevitable, therefore, you need to make it a habit to dust all surfaces in your home every three days. Don’t do anything else – just grab a cloth, an all-purpose cleaner, and cover everything.

I usually do this in the morning right before I get ready for work. I get up 10-15 minutes earlier than get on with dusting.

– Hoover and mop the floors every five days

If I have to be honest, I don’t need more than 30 minutes to hoover and mop the floors in my home which is why I do it first thing in the morning as well. I eat breakfast then I drink my coffee while I am hoovering and mopping.

Not only does this help me maintain my home spotless at all times but I also manage to fit in a bit of exercise in my busy schedule.

Hoovering and mopping do burnt calories!
