Today, I read an article through Bloglovin called How to Speed Clean Your Home in 15 Minutes. This was an excellent article, and it included tips on quick cleaning that I have used for years.
Often, just before a party, I almost always run out of time. I have to stop working on the unrealistic list of what I would like to do and bring the house in for a landing.
I almost always bite off more than I can chew, so the massive flower arrangement I had planned for the piano becomes a group of framed pictures of family and a candelabra (something I already had.). And that new wreath I had planned for the front door becomes a seasonal wreath that I rotate year in and year out.
But the house itself is not ready, so this is why I put away the unrealistic list and do a speed clean throughout the house. I always try to leave myself about 30 minutes for this, but this speed cleaning article has made me rethink this. I should allow myself 45 minutes, because of the number of rooms in my house.
I already play music when I seriously clean. I love good old kick-ass country or classic rock and roll, so either works well for me. Music helps the time pass and keeps me moving.
I use baskets; but only three, one for for each floor. I’ll expand that to one for each room. I store lots of baskets in the garage anyway, so I already have enough on hand.
How do you speed clean your home? Do you have any new ideas for getting the job done faster? Please share!
