Being a mom isn’t easy, and it gets even harder when you add the stress of running your own household to your plate. From cooking dinner to doing laundry to cleaning the house, there always seems to be something else to do, leaving you wondering how on earth you’re going to get it all done in time for bedtime! Thankfully, there are several ways you can make life easier around the house without sacrificing the cleanliness of your home or using products that are harmful to your kids (and you!).
When to tackle each room
You may have read that it’s a good idea to tackle cleaning one room of your house at a time (kitchen, bathroom, bedroom), and that’s certainly good advice. But when you live in an immaculate home and want to keep it that way, you may not want to wait days or weeks between rooms. A better approach is: hit every space once per week. That way, you’ll never be behind on any single area.
How to keep your bathroom tidy
If you don’t have time to clean your bathroom every day, follow these simple steps: The next time you shower, use an old toothbrush and some baking soda to scrub down everything (you won’t even need to use soap). After letting it sit for a few minutes, rinse with a squeegee (or just turn on the shower if it doesn’t get too wet!). It doesn’t take very long and will keep your tub nice and shiny.
How to keep your kitchen organized
The kitchen is a busy place. It’s where you cook, it’s where your kids eat, and it’s where you wash all of your dishes. If that sounds like a lot to keep up with, then consider enlisting some help in getting your kitchen organized so you have more time to actually spend cooking and eating! Try these tips.
Keeping your surfaces clean
When you have kids, keeping your house clean can be a challenge. That’s why we created these cleaning tips to help busy moms keep their homes sanitary and healthy while they chase after kiddos. Keep your surfaces as germ-free as possible with these helpful hints: • Wipe down countertops, appliances, sinks and other household surfaces regularly with disinfectant wipes.
Staying on top of laundry
It can be easy to let laundry pile up over time, but once you’ve got a mountain of dirty clothes it becomes overwhelming. Fortunately, there are some cleaning tips that can help make tackling laundry easier
A nightly routine to stay on top of messes and dirt
Make it a routine to clean up around your house at night before bedtime. That way, all of your chores are out of the way and you can spend more time with your family. This includes washing dishes, mopping floors, tidying up toys and more! Set aside an hour or two every night to complete these tasks. This will help keep you sane as a mom – especially when you have little ones in diapers who are prone to make messes!
