8 Easy Speed Cleaning Techniques
- Create a cleaning plan
Creating a cleaning plan is an essential step to ensure you stay on track and get the job done as quickly as possible. Make a list of all the rooms and tasks that need to be completed, and break them down into manageable chunks. Set a time limit for each task, and try to stick to it. Having a cleaning plan will help you prioritize your tasks and save time in the long run. You can find my cleaning plan here.
- Keep your supplies organized
Keeping your cleaning supplies organized and within reach can save you a lot of time when cleaning. Keep your cleaning products and tools in a caddy or a bucket that you can easily carry from room to room. This way, you won’t waste time looking for cleaning supplies when you need them.
- Use a timer
Using a timer is an excellent way to stay focused and motivated while cleaning. Set a timer for each task, and challenge yourself to complete it before the timer goes off. This way, you’ll be less likely to get distracted and more likely to get the job done quickly.
- Work from top to bottom
When cleaning a room, always start at the top and work your way down. Start by dusting the ceiling and light fixtures, and then move on to the furniture and floors. This way, you’ll avoid having to clean the same surfaces twice.
- Use a microfiber cloth
Microfiber cloths are excellent for cleaning because they trap dirt and dust easily. They’re also reusable, so you’ll save money and reduce waste in the long run. Use microfiber cloths to clean surfaces, dust furniture, and wipe down appliances.
- Use natural cleaning products
Using natural cleaning products like vinegar and baking soda is an excellent way to save time and money while cleaning. Vinegar is an excellent natural cleaner that can tackle a wide range of cleaning tasks, while baking soda is great for scrubbing stubborn stains and grime. Speaking of cleaning products, another easy speed cleaning technique is to spray down your sinks, showers, tubs, and countertops and let the product do the work by letting it soak on each surface for about 10 minutes before rinsing it off.
- Vacuum regularly
Vacuuming regularly is an excellent way to keep your home clean and free of dust and dirt. Make it a habit to vacuum your floors and carpets at least once a week, and more often if you have pets or allergies. Vacuuming regularly will help keep your home clean and save you time in the long run.
- Clean as you go
Cleaning as you go is an excellent way to keep your home clean and avoid spending hours cleaning at once. As you go about your day, take a few minutes to tidy up and clean any messes you make. For example, wipe down the kitchen counters after cooking or clean the bathroom sink after brushing your teeth.
