Most of us enjoy having a clean, attractive home that it is a joy to spend time in, but when it comes to getting our homes into our preferred condition, many of us are less clean. Let’s face it, people who enjoy cleaning and general housework are few and far between, but that doesn’t mean that we have to put up with unkempt homes. It is possible to have your cake and eat it with these top tips for sprucing up the home with minimal effort:
Invest in Baskets and Boxes
Most home interior stores will have a range of decorative baskets and boxes, which are a godsend to the lazy homeowner. Buy a few of these and arrange them liberally throughout your home, then when you find the clutter building up, but you’re not in the mood for organizing, you can simply scoop everything up into one of these receptacles, and your home will immediately look much cleaner and more tidy!
Invest in Room Freshening Sprays
Room sprays, which typically contain essential oils amongst other things are great for freshening the stale air in a room that is long overdue a clean. You can even get sprays that kill germs upon contact, and since it only takes a few seconds to spray them liberally throughout the home, they’re a real lifesaver that will keep you going until you have the time or inclination to do a proper clean-up.
If you take the time to invest in the best vacuum cleaner you can afford, you will be able to complete this chore each day, and it’ll hardly be any effort at all. For a cleaning-averse person, the best vacuum cleaner is typically one which will both clean and vacuum, and which is very portable. Buy such a vacuum cleaner, and you won’t hate keeping the floors clean anymore.
Taking time to think ‘Which one should I buy?” is something you should apply to all purchases, cleaning and otherwise, as it will help you to maintain a healthy, attractive home effortlessly.
Take Out the Trash
Taking out the trash takes seconds, but it will instantly transform your home, by removing any odors associated with your garbage, and by decluttering the places where trash is kept.
Wipe Down Surfaces
If you don’t have the time, or you cannot be bothered, to declutter your surfaces, simply sling everything into one of your handy storage baskets, and then you will be able to wipe down your surfaces in a couple of minutes. Doing this will make a dramatic difference to the cleanliness of your home, and it will have taken you hardly any time at all, so it is well worth doing.
Dust Shiny Surfaces
If you don’t have the time to thoroughly dust your home, just concentrate on the areas that are most obvious, such as mirrors and shiny metal surfaces, which show up dust far more easily than other areas. You can come back and clean the rest later.
Buy a Robot Vacuum Cleaner
The ultimate in minimal effort cleaning, investing in a robot vacuum cleaner for when you really can’t be bothered to do the housework is a great way to cut down on your labor and still see a clean home at the end of the day.
