15 Daily Habits To Keep Your House Clean & Tidy


The secret to keeping a clean home is little tasks that you need to do every day. These daily habits will ensure your home is neat and clean all week long!

One of the best ways to kickstart your day is to make your bed. As soon as you get up and out of bed, make the bed. It’s a small and quick task that will start your day off on the right note.

Make Your Bed Every Morning

Start the wash cycle first thing in the morning so that you have time to get everything washed, dried, folded and put away.

Do One Load of Laundry Every Day

If you notice crumbs or a spill on the counter, clean it up. If food is dropped on the floor and the floor needs sweeping or a quick Swiffer, just do it.

Don’t Wait to Clean Up Messes

Once the kids go to bed, get in the habit of doing a quick pick-up. Keeping baskets in each room for toys makes it easy to zip around, grab them and plop them into a basket.

Do a Quick Pick up Every Evening

Once a day, I try to make sure everything that doesn’t belong on our bathroom sinks get cleared off. Then I give the counters a quick wipe-down. This is a great way to keep the room neat and clean.

Clear Off and Wipe Down Bathroom Counters

When you come in from outside, don’t just drop things on the floor. Shoes go straight into a basket or on a dedicated shelf. Purses, backpacks and gym bags should be taken to their own dedicated spot right away.

Don’t Allow for a Drop Zone
