Back-to-school cleaning at home

Now that the kids have gone back to school, it’s the perfect time to hit reset and clean the house! If your kids are back home schooling for now, this is something to keep on the list for when they are allowed to go back!

Take the opportunity to declutter and clear away the mess that might have built up during their break. It’s also the best time to pick up some new cleaning habits that can help you keep on top of your household!

Here are a few back-to-school cleaning tips to keep your house neat and tidy.

Declutter your home, declutter your mind!

Did you know that a messy and cluttered home can make your mind feel messy and cluttered as well? What may seem like a daunting task can make all the difference to how future-you feels.

We recommend doing one room at a time at your own pace. Donate clothing items that don’t fit or sell items you no longer use, so there’s only items of use in that particular room. You’ll be enjoying a fresh and tidy space in no time.

Organise your storage areas

Hallway cupboards easily become dumping grounds for practically anything and everything that needs to be hidden from sight. They become a nightmare to clean, with all sorts of items getting stashed in them. It’s best to tackle cupboard cleaning and sorting before it grows worse; with proper organisation, you can even have extra space for storage!

To keep things organised, you can use tubs with labels: one for shoes, one for sports gear,, and so on. You can also attach hooks for coats, jackets and bags. Assigning a specific area where the kids can keep their various stuff helps them be more mindful of where they put their things, so you won’t have to trip over their clutter anymore.

Perform a Deep Clean

We know your home might feel like a real mess after it being full of tiny feet for the past 8 weeks, but you’re only a few hours away from that total clean house feeling! If you do a deep clean on your carpets, upholstery, tiles and grout a few times a year, it will make all the cleans in between so much quicker and easier. We love our Deep Cleaner for this, it’s so easy to set up and use.
