Nobody wants to be a slave to their schedule of household chores and guess what? We think we've tapped into some fantastic tips that will leave you with a fresh, functional and beautiful home to come back to every evening. Don't believe us that all you'll need is 10 minutes in the morning? Just you wait!
If your bed is getting a little stale, spend a few minutes just whipping off the covers and popping some clean ones on. Your bedroom will smell and feel instantly fresher and you get to climb into a sweet-smelling bed that evening!
This is more of a mental-cleaning tip, but worth doing all the same! As you sip your first cup of coffee of the day, just give your email inbox a quick scour and ditch all the junk! You'll feel so much more organised and won't have to do it that evening, or at the weekend.
If you don't already have an emergency pack set up, now's the time to do it! Grab a rucksack and make sure you have a rain mac, torch and a few tools in there, as you never know when a power cut can happen and you need to be prepared. Each morning, just check your pack is where you think it is!
Don;t roll your eyes and think that window cleaning is a huge undertaking, as you can now buy window wipes that leave a streak-free finish, instantly. Just give your main panes a quick once over and do the rest later on.
If you see clutter on the floor, don't think that you'll get it later, just pick it up there and then! A clear floor makes a house look instantly tidier and more put together and we think we all know the pain of stepping on a discarded Lego brick that you forgot about! Don't risk it!
A quick pummel will see your sofa instantly springing back into life and ready for you to flop on, when you get home. This will take 30 seconds, at the most, but you will thank yourself that evening!
If you have time to give the floor a quick sweep or vacuum, do it! Dirt, hair and dust builds up so quickly and if you have surprise visitors, they WILL notice it!
Don't struggle with a mouldy old shower curtain, just pop it in your washing machine the next time you do a load! Easy, hassle-free and effective, these are the kinds of tips we LOVE!
Have you ever noticed how greasy and disgusting your computer, phone and even television screens get? BLEURGH! Don't let the grime build up, when you can simply run an antibacterial wipe over them in the morning!
Here's a sneaky tip for you! For a cleaner and more organised looking home, treat yourself to some fresh flowers once a week. They will freshen up the home, smell great and, give the impression of someone who is really on top of household chores!
