This New Year cleaning resolution tips post is brought to you by Mr. Clean as part of a Type-A Parent Community Sponsored Post.
Its extremely important to me to keep my house super clean, especially with having my 3 month old son. Cleaning is endless when you have a baby, there’s no way around it. Now we all know I don’t make New Year Resolution’s, but more or less practice what I preach daily.
Its so easy to get caught up with the ten thousand things that need to be done everyday. Before we know it, there are loads of laundry to be done, bathrooms to clean, dishes to do, and floors to sweep and mop. A while back I wrote a post on how to declutter and organize your home, but I didn’t touch on how to manage keeping a clean home in the post.
So here’s a few tips:
1. Use a multi-purpose cleaner. Mr. Clean’s Liquid Muscle can make it easy and inexpensive to clean. Mr. Clean’s Liquid Muscle has 2.5X more power in every drop*. It also has an auto-stop cap, so you always dispense the right amount and waste less. You can use it directly on the mess to clean things like stovetops or counters, or dilute it in water to clean your floors. And because of its triple action formula, each drop packs a bigger punch than you’d expect. Even if there’s a dirt supervillain lurking around, Liquid Muscle helps you can defeat it with ease. By having an all-in-one product, you save time and money, and don’t have to lug a bunch of cleaning products around the house.
I was able to clean my countertops, mirror, sink, and bathtub with Liquid Muscle and it left my bathroom lemony fresh. The good thing about liquid muscle is that it comes in many other scents, so if lemon isn’t you thing you can go for the Dawn scented or Meadows & Rain Liquid Muscle.
2. Prioritize your cleaning. Clean what’s most susceptible to getting dirty or contaminated first. This is usually your bathrooms and kitchens.
3. Take time to deep clean. The best time to do this is a little later in the week, when you’ve already covered some ground. Your floors and carpet are what you will want to focus on at this point.
4. Save the simple stuff till the end. Your laundry, windows, polishing up the furniture can all be done later in the week. Laundry pretty much does itself, with the exception of sorting and folding. Windows, dusting, and polishing the furniture take just a few minutes to wipe down, so it doesn’t have to be at the top of your cleaning list priorities.
5. Take some time off. If you don’t get everything done in one day or one week, don’t sweat it! The laundry isn’t going anywhere, the floors can wait, and everyone will be okay. If you’re diligent on a weekly basis, you will have less and less work to do each week. Ask for help from your kids, spouse, or other family members that live in your household and give yourself a break!
I hope these tips are helpful to you on how to keep your home spotless every day of the year. I included a super simple 4-day cleaning checklist printable to go by to help you at as well. And yes, 4 days, because everyone deserves to start the weekend early and have Friday off!
