7 Cleaning Tasks To Do Daily

There are a few things you can do to prevent having to spend a whole day cleaning–it just takes daily discipline to do a few simple tasks.

1) Make Your Bed

Everyone says this, but it really is a great way to start the day. Plus, once your bed is made, you are less inclined to get back in it. Make your bed and start your day off with one less thing to do later.

2) Vacuum

If you have pets, allergies, or both, you should absolutely be vacuuming daily. You’ll have less dust, dirt, and dander floating around in the house. Also, those nice vacuum lines make your whole house look cleaner than it actually is. If you can only get one of these done, do this one!

3) Wipe Your Counter Tops

This is a good idea for the bacteria alone, much less it really adds up. If you wipe them with a disinfectant daily, there is less of a mess to clean up later. This, also, gives your home a cleaner look without doing deep cleaning.

4) Throw Empty Things Away

This is just a good clutter rule in general. Don’t put back nearly empty milk cartons in the fridge or leave empty shampoo bottles along the shower. Getting rid of it as it comes along saves you time in the long run. And it’s less clutter! If you can’t get use out of it, get rid of it!

5) Wipe Down Door Knobs

This is so important, especially this time of year. If there is more than one person in your household, this is a must! Since this is a place that everyone touches, it is the number one place that you are likely to spread germs. It’s a simple task, and it could keep those nasty viruses from spreading through your household.

6) Tidy Up/Put Things Away

When you walk in the door, do you have a set place for your jacket, purse, or keys? I do, but I find myself sometimes rushing in and leaving it all on a chair in the kitchen. I’ll go back eventually and put them where they belong so my stuff isn’t just sitting on all of the furniture in the common areas. It would be so much simpler to take that extra five seconds to put my outerwear where it belongs.

This is the same with ingredients you use while cooking, makeup/skincare products, and office supplies you take out as needed. Use them, and then put them back in their designated place! Again, something that takes so little time in the moment and saves you a lot of time in the long run.

7) Keep Up on Dishes

This is one thing that has been ingrained in me from the time I was old enough to do dishes: when the dishes are dirty they go straight in the dish washer, when the dish washer is full start it, and when the dishes are clean put them away. This way, you’ll never have a dirty dish sitting in the sink. You were going to load the dish washer at some point, so why not keep up on it daily?

Cut Down On Your Overall Cleaning

If you do these chores daily, you won’t have to scramble to clean the house before guests come over, and you won’t feel like you have so much cleaning to do at any given time. By doing these tasks daily, you will be living a clutter-free and mess-free life this Winter.

    Doing small things every day does seem to make the job smaller overall. I don’t vacuum every day but I do sweep 2-3 times a day.

    Great tips! I’m lucky if I can vacuum once a week. One of my dogs has a panic attack and tries to eat the vacuum anytime he sees it.
