Before we know it, fall will be around the corner and with fall comes the wonderful time of fall cleaning. Fall cleaning is where you clean all the dust bunnies out of the house before winter hits and you are stuck inside with them. Fall cleaning can be a stressful time if not handled properly and you might end up giving up instead of getting finished. We have come up with 5 simple ways to make fall cleaning a breeze.
5 Ways to Make Fall Cleaning a Breeze
Make a List
Create a list of everything that you need to get done and check things off as you go. You will feel like you are getting more things accomplished if you have a list to check off and you won’t have the stress of trying to remember if you got everything done.
Get All Your Cleaners At Once
After you make your list, head to the store and pick up all your cleaning supplies in one trip. This way you don’t get to the middle of your list and have to make a trip to town for that floor cleaner you forgot. Or get the ingredients to make your own cleaners!
Take Your Time
Don’t be in a rush, your house and the dust bunnies will still be there no matter what! Take one room or one task at a time so it doesn’t get overwhelming.
If you feel like you can’t do it all, get help. There’s no need to feel overwhelmed. Even if you can only afford one hour of help it will take some stress off your mind.
Make sure you have a reward planned at the end of it all, whether that be a massage, a shopping trip just for you at the mall, or a nice dinner out with your family.
Cleaning can become a much easier task when you follow the ideas above and stay calm about the process. Before you know it your house will be sparkling and you’ll be treating yourself to that shopping trip!
