Habits People With Clean Organized Homes Have In Common

Keep cleaning supplies handy where you use them

Face it: There’s no way you’re going to trek downstairs to grab some cleaner to wipe off that toothpaste glob; you’re going to leave it there until it hardens into cement. 

Clean the shower while you're showering

You’re standing there rinsing your hair, so why not do a once-over of the shower walls?  Doing this will prevent soap scum buildup! 

Clean as you cook

This is the best way to avoid a huge headache at the end of a meal, which you know you’re going to want to walk away and leave!   Even if you need to keep both eyes on the burners, at least fill your sink with soapy water and stick the pots, pans, utensils, and other cooking items in to soak while you eat.

Run the dishwasher at night

Yes, even if it’s not quite full. That’s so you can empty it first thing in the morning so it’s ready for action.

Embrace spot cleaning

Remember that it’s the whole chore that will wear you down, so deal only with what absolutely has to be taken care of that moment.

“One fingerprint on the door of the fridge is not a reason to clean the whole fridge,” Stewart says.

Keep surfaces clear

The more you can keep tables, floors, beds, and counter tops clear, the cleaner and more spacious these areas feel.    The biggest clutter culprit is paper, so don’t let it pile up. Recycle unnecessary mail the minute it comes in, and create a filing system for the rest of it.

Clean out your refrigerator every week

The best time to clean out the fridge is on trash day—off it goes—and ideally, right before you go food shopping to replenish it. You’ll be able to put away the groceries more easily—and you’ll be more liable to eat them if you can see them.

Never leave a room empty-handed

If you’re going upstairs, take something with you, whether it’s a stack of clean laundry or toilet paper refills. If you’re heading from the living room to the kitchen, grab that magazine that needs to be recycled and the water glass destined for your empty dishwasher.

Have a place for everything—and keep it there

Always put things back in their proper place after every use!
