Hello friends, whoops, didn’t mean to disappear on you last week… but we’re re-decorating our dining room, living room, master bedroom and it’s taking up ALL our time. But so worth it – of course! And I’ll be sure to share the final result on the blog as well. Yay! But for today, I’m teaming up with one of my favourite companies, Miele, and sharing tips on how I keep my house clean and what kind of schedule I stick to. My hubby would definitely tell you I’m a neat freak, but what can I say, I’m happiest when my house is clean, full of fresh flowers, and guest ready!
Do a little bit everyday: I do a quick tidy each and every morning. I put dishes away, quickly wipe down the counters, fluff pillows, make our bed, and spend 5-10 minutes cleaning our bathrooms. Done & done! Plus love having our home look presentable for the day – it helps me feel way more organized and on top of my game.
Break it down: Monday’s are bathroom days, Tuesdays I deep clean our kitchen + vacuum our home, Wednesdays I do laundry (bedding, personal, etc), Thursdays I do a general tidy of my master bedroom closets and then that’s that. Though typically, my hubby will do one more vacuum over the weekend. OK, I sound like a full fledged neat freak. Don’t I?! But honestly, breaking it down works for me, and keeps me from feeling like I’ve fallen too behind.
Tidy up after yourself: I’m known to leave a mess wherever I go. But I’m working on it! And getting so much better. So now, if I’ve pulled something out, I diligently try to remember to put it away and clean up after myself. Saves so much time and makes a huge difference!
Don’t be afraid to ask for help: If you’re swamped with life and work, don’t be afraid to ask for help. I’m no stranger to calling a cleaning service when life gets too busy or I’m working on tight deadlines.
Pick quality products: Cleaning and relying on the right products makes all the difference. As I mentioned, for this post, I teamed up with Miele and loved trying their new Blizzard CX1 vacuum. It does such an amazing job on hardwood floors and carpeted areas, it’s quiet, bagless and I love the self cleaning filter. If you’re in the market for a new vacuum? I’d definitely add this one to your “must have” list. My husband and I honestly couldn’t be happier, the quality is impeccable and it’s made cleaning an absolute cinch in our house!
