Keeping your home clean and organized always is not as difficult as it seems. Just follow a simple routine to eliminate scope for clutter, says an expert.
Yukta Mathur, editor of online furniture shopping platform housefull.com, shares some tips to keep your home looking tidy everyday:
1. Say ‘no' to only weekend cleaning: It's a common habit to wait for Saturday or Sunday for household chores. But this habit only leads to a messier week. It's not easy to clean everything every day, but chalk out a routine where you finish off some work on each day of the week.
2. Organize your washroom: If your washroom is well-arranged, it looks better and you feel like keeping it that way regularly. Arranging those bottles of shampoo and shower gel, toothpaste, and other toiletries after bathing, is the perfect way to ensure that everything looks immaculate. Don't forget to use a floor wiper and stow away your used clothes in the laundry bag for a stench-free washroom.
3. Box the small clutter: There are usually a lot of small things lying around such as keys, sticky notepads, etc. Allocate small containers or boxes for stocking all this stuff. This also holds true for toys and play items. It's simple but yet effective.
4. Keep smelly stuff out: Make sure that you keep your trash outside before leaving for work every day to ensure that you are welcomed to a odor-free house. Also, keep your shoes outside or somewhere in the open (as in a balcony or backyard) as they can bring in a lot of dirt and stench.
