10 Tips to Save Time and Energy Cleaning

Posted by Brandon Barker on

Whether or not you like to clean, it is a chore that cannot go undone. Luckily, it is possible to do a thorough job without devoting all of your time. Here are a few tips on how to save time and energy when cleaning around the house.

  1. Make a list. Write down the things you want to get done throughout the week, and then choose one or two things a day to cross off. This way you don’t let everything build up, and don’t have to lose an entire day cleaning.
  2. Set a timer. Give yourself timed goals for each room/cleaning project. This way you will work faster and ensure you’re not spending too much time in one place. Having a designated spot for everything you need helps keep you on time.
  3. Buy extra basics. Having a set of cleaning supplies on each floor or in each area of your home will keep you from running back and forth during a cleanup, saving valuable time.
  4. Have at least two sets of sheets. If you stay up to date on your laundry, with two or more sets of sheets you can always have a clean pair while you put the other in to wash. Switch to QuickZip sheets and save even more time by simply zipping your sheets on and off.
  5. Use white vinegar. Eradicate hard water stains in the toilet by pouring a cup of white vinegar into the bowl, leave it to sit overnight, and then flush the following morning.
  6. Wipe down shower. Wipe down tile walls and glass doors with a squeegee or rag after showering to avoid build up causing water marks and soap scum that is hard to remove later.
  7. Clean as you go. Wipe surfaces as you go while cooking and keep utensils and dishes in the sink. Clean your stovetop spills as they happen, as waiting can lead to difficult, crusted-on stains. 
  8. Start from the top. As a general rule, your floors should be the last thing you clean, as they will get dirty as you clean surfaces above. 
  9. Keep wipes handy. If you have a set of wipes in your bathroom and kitchen, you can quickly clean surfaces, sinks, and toilets every time you make a small mess, and avoid the need to deep clean as often.
  10. Do laundry once a day. Rather than waiting to do it all at once, make the time to do a load or two a day. This requires minimal effort and allows you to have more clean items more often.
