The best way to keep your house from becoming a mess is to take care of it, according to the good housekeeping advice we’ve picked up from an array of books and magazines.1.
Use a clean, organized kitchenThe cleanliness of your kitchen should be a top priority when it comes to keeping it looking tidy and tidy.
“Make sure your kitchen is clean and organized, and don’t forget to have a clean cupboard handy when you’re cleaning up,” says Katie Tapp, a certified housekeeper and home care expert who runs the website The Great Housekeeping Academy.2.
Make sure your fridge is stocked and up to dateWhen it comes time to buy groceries or put your house in order, you should be thinking about keeping the fridge stocked and ready to go.
This is especially important if you are buying fresh produce, says Liz Burt, owner of The Healthy Living Guide and an expert in kitchen maintenance.3.
Avoid making a messWhen it’s time to get out of bed and into your office, take the time to tidy your kitchen.
“You should clean up every surface and add any dust or grime to your floorboards so that you can quickly remove any spills or smudges,” says Tapp.4.
Avoid having a dishwasher in the kitchenEvery day, take a moment to get your kitchen clean.
“Use a dishwashing detergent or wash soap to wash your hands, dishes and utensils before you use them,” says Burt.5.
Avoid messy countersIt’s important to make sure that your counters are neatly covered with a dishcloth or towel so that there is no mess.
“Dishwashers have a tendency to create dust, and these dust can accumulate and clog your counters,” says Amanda Saffron, owner and owner of the website Damp, Clean, Simple.
“Try to use a cloth or a towel to clean and seal the countertops and the counter to prevent any further accumulation of dust.”6.
Use natural soap to clean your countertops”Natural soap can be applied by hand or by a spray bottle.
A good rule of thumb is to use enough to coat the countertop, but never over-do it,” says Saffran.7.
Make your bedsheets comfortable and cleanYour bed sheets should be as comfortable as possible.
“They should be at the top of the counter, on the floor, and close to your feet,” says Gwen Senn, an expert on home care and home design.
“Don’t leave your bed sheets unattended in the bedroom and make sure they are folded or folded in the proper direction,” she adds.8.
Wash your bathroom sinkBefore washing your toilet, it’s important that you wash your sink properly.
“Washing the sink at the right time will help reduce odours, so it’s essential to wash the sink in the morning,” says Rachel Wollmann, an owner of Comfort Clean Spa and Spa, which specialises in handwashing, bath and body care.9.
Use soap to dry your clothes and towels”If you’re not sure what to use to dry clothes, try a detergent like Pure Body Wash or Simply Washing.
It will dry the clothes so they are clean, and the detergent will help make them softer and more comfortable to use,” says Wollman.10.
Use hand sanitizer to disinfect your homeWhen it has come to cleaning up after a baby, the most important thing is to disinfect everything.
“If you have kids, wear gloves and keep your hands away from the babies’ bodies,” says Matt Rolfe, an independent home care consultant who runs his own home care company, Home & Garden.
“Clean the bathroom sink, shower stalls, kitchen sink and any surfaces where the baby is.
Wash all surfaces thoroughly before disinfecting,” he adds.11.
Get rid of all pet waste and dustIf you live in a larger city, it might be better to avoid all pet-related items and just have a couple of bottles of hand sanitiser handy.
“Keep your pet shampoo, dish soap and dish detergent on hand to use for hand sanitation when needed,” says Rolfes.12.
Use disposable linens for laundryIf you are taking your laundry to the laundromat, you might have to do a little bit of cleanup.
“I find that using disposable linen for laundry is a good idea,” says Lisa Purdy, an author of the new book You Have to Do It: The Truth About What You Need to Do to Get Out of Bed.
“Your linen will not only help to wash dishes but also to sanitise your clothes.”13.
Make a simple, clean, healthy meal planThe best way for a family to stay on track is to make a simple meal plan to stick to each week.
“The meal plan is what will help to keep
