Preventing Messes in Your Home

The number one way to make house cleaning easier and less of a burden on your time is to hire a maid service--but the second way is to prevent messes from happening in the first place. Maintenance is the most important part of keeping your house looking the way you want it to, and that means doing little things to help prevent messes that can be a chore to clean up later. 

Here are a few things you can do to keep your scrubbing to a minimum:

In the Kitchen

1. Rinse your dishes. Washing dishes with stuck-on food can be time consuming and frustrating. If you wash by hand, you end up scrubbing and scraping, and if you wash in the dishwasher, you end up pre-washing anyway. If you encourage your family to take just a moment to rinse off their dishes when they finish eating, you won't be dealing with  stuck-on messes later.

2. Use a spoon holder. Grease or sauce gets on your spoon as you cook, and if you set your spoon straight on the counter or stovetop, it leaves a mess that can be easily spread to other countertops and is a pain to clean up later. Instead, use a spoon holder or small plate for your cooking utensils so you only have one dish to wash.

In the Bathroom

1. Wipe the shower. Once every few days, spray the shower with a vinegar and water solution after your shower or bath, wipe down the shower walls, and then rinse with a quick burst from the shower. This will keep soap scum from building up on your tiles or grout, making bathroom cleaning easier.

2. Keep the toilet clean. A scrub brush next to the toilet and a few seconds once or twice a day is all that's needed to keep your toilet looking nice between cleanings.

In every room, make it a point to put things away as you finish with them, and encourage your family to do the same. Preventing clutter from gathering will be a great time-saver when you're ready to clean later.
