Have you ever felt the need to be more organised in life? Well, it is a proven fact that having a cleaner space can help with better mindfulness.
It’s that time again, ‘New Year – New Me’. This New Year, make tidiness part of your lifestyle. It will make you feel organised, get clarity, and make you fall in love with your space all over again!
Here are our top 5 tips to having a clean environment without a lot of effort:
Make it a habit to ‘make your bed’ first thing in the morning
Start your day off well and make your bed as soon as you climb out of it! It only takes a couple of seconds, and it makes the room tidy and starts your day off in the right tone.
If you would also like to change your sheets quickly, use easy zip up bedding from Marylehome. You can just zip your bed sheet on and off without having to lift your mattress!
Put your dishes away after every meal
It is a terrible feeling to have a pile of dishes at the end of the day, waiting to be washed and put away.
Here’s a solution - put them away as soon as you are done eating! If you have a dishwasher, collect all your dishes in it to turn it on at the end of the day.
Recycle that pile of mail
We are in 2022, and still SO much paper mail gets collected! Make sure to check your mail a couple of times a week, and recycle the ones that are junk (which most of them usually are…), and keep the important ones on file.
DO NOT leave it on a dedicated table and keep collecting to go through them one fine day.
15 min nightly clean up
Make it a family routine to do a 15 minute nightly clean up. When everyone is tidying up together it is much quicker, and can be a fun family activity.
Kids can clean their room and do other small household chores, while you finish up the kitchen or fold away any laundry.
It will slowly become a habit and you will never wake up to a messy house again!
Dedicate one day as a weekly laundry and cleaning day
Collect all your clothes and bedding in a laundry bag/basket throughout the week and use that one day of the week for laundry.
It will create a routine, and you can also clean the house on that day.
BONUS TIP – Change your bed sheets every week
Changing bed sheets is so tedious a chore that sometimes people avoid doing it. The good thing about Marylehome easy bed sheets is that you can just zip the bed sheet on and off without having to lift your mattress.
Wash the top sheet and replace it with the second top sheet that is included. You will never have to sleep on dirty sheets again and it will never be a tedious job again!
