Cleaning Tips for Busy Moms

Having a clean home when you have young kids can sometimes feel like an impossible task, and you might be wondering if it’ll ever be clean again.

The simple answer is YES, it can be!

We want to share some cleaning tips and tricks that you can do today, even with the busy life of a mom.

1. Schedule Your Cleaning Days

Creating scheduled cleaning days can help to prevent you from feeling overwhelmed and stressed.

To start, create a list of the basic tasks that you want and need to finish during the week.

By creating a daily schedule, you can focus each day solely on those items that are on your to-do list.

Here’s a possible cleaning schedule example:

Monday: Plan your meals for the week, make room in the fridge, grocery shopping

Tuesday: Clean all of your bathrooms

Wednesday: Laundry & Kitchen

Thursday: The Bedrooms

Friday: Sweeping or Vacuuming Floors and Dusting

Saturday: Catch up on any needed task

Sunday: Rest

By creating a similar schedule, it will help to reduce stress while keeping you on top of all the needed house responsibilities.

2. Put Away As You Go

If you notice a piece of clothing on the floor or dirty dishes in the living room from movie-night, take care of them at that moment because it will help to save you time in the long run.

3. Set Aside 30 Minutes Every Day

We recommend setting aside thirty minutes a day for cleaning but find the amount of time that works best for you and your schedule.

Then, each day, set a timer for that allotted time.

Work on the scheduled task for the day, and allow yourself to stop after the timer goes off.

4. Delegate

If you have kids, make cleaning a family fun event.

By delegating age-appropriate chores, not only will you feel less stressed about everything that still needs to be done, but you’ll also be teaching them the importance of cleaning and working together as a family.
