Don't wait for your FREE DAY to make your home TIDY!

Oh yeah! Instead of waiting for your free day (which is an impossibility when you are a mom and much more a working-mom!) to make your home tidy...

Why not try these 3 quick tips to a quick home cleaning:

1 Wipe instead of gripe. Everytime you see some dirt on the table, dust on the floor or some splatter on your microwave and oven-top, wipe it.  That way it is easier to wipe it off while it's still fresh rather than doing it later on and you'll need more effort to deep-clean it.  
Wipe that small spill inside your refrigerator before taking that gallon of milk out.  That way, you will not forget to wipe because your refrigerator is still open.

You don't need to know who did that and gripe about it, just wipe it.

2 Pick it up and put it up.  Even how good you are at training your kids to pick up their clothes, toys, shoes and backpacks, they will still SOMETIMES forget to do that.  

Why not pick it up and put it up where it's supposed to be.  But while we do that, let's not forget at our "mom-trick" of sending the message to them by doing the "this-is-not-supposed-to-be-here" kind of look (insert: big-round-eyes-stare ♥).  So that hopefully, they will remember to put it up next time.
3 Clean as you go.  This is like a universal rule of a good housekeeping.  

After brushing your teeth, leave the sink and the mirror clean.  
What's 5 seconds of wiping that mirror clean?  

Clear out your counter tops from unnecessary stuff - file your mails away. Basket them in if you can't file them right now, that way your counter is clutter-free.

You'll see how much tidier your home will be with these 3 quick tips.  These are our great ways to making home-cleaning effortless and less time-consuming.

I would love to hear from you if any of these quick tips helped you, so come back and leave me a comment.

  4. I'm sooo guilty of the "I'll wipe it up later" spilling in the kitchen. And then it's overwhelming later. :) Perhaps I'll implement your trick starting tomorrow.

  5. What great tips! I like the wipe instead of gripe. I don't always follow those simple rules but I do know that when I do, I feel like I am more organized and feel more on top of things. Thanks so much for sharing.

    1. thanks amy! i like to do these 3 quick steps myself because i don't want cleaning to be overwhelming because once it piles up, it seems to be a lot more of a job than a quick thing that you can do :)
