5 Simple Tips to Keep Your Home Squeaky Clean All Year

Despite holiday guests and seasonal shuffle, there are ways you can keep your home clean despite the ebb and flow of the seasons. Here are 5 simple tips to keep your home squeaky clean all year long.

1 . Leave shoes at the door.

After having holiday guests come in and out of your place, your floors might be more than a little dirty. Don’t let that travel into the new year — buy a landing strip for rain boots, tennis shoes and other things that might dirty up the floors. Plus it’ll make your life easier; you’ll never forget where you left your shoes!

2. Tackle the Three T’s: Television, Toilets, Tabletops:

The simplest cleaning hack that you can remember are the Three T’s. They’re the most used and always acquire the most grime. So when you have guests over or just need to make your house look cleaner, just double down on the Three T’s.

3. Clean as you go.

Save yourself a few deep cleans by cleaning up as you go! After you’re done cooking dinner, clean up the kitchen. Put clothes away before you go to bed. It’s the little things that help overall.

4. Use baskets to store cluttered items.

Grab a nice basket or two and use it to store some of that clutter that just doesn’t have a place. It’s a great organizational tool that makes your place clean and adds some flair to your decorations.

5. Make the bed.

As simple as remembering to clean the Three T’s, making your bed is an effortless way to keep your apartment looking squeaky clean this year. It pulls together the whole room and doesn’t take up much time at all.
