3. Get the family involved
You know what they say, a family who cleans together….saves a parent’s sanity? We suggest blocking out one morning a week to tackle the larger tasks together. Then? Just concentrate on the day-to-day during the week.
A weekly clean should include:
- Vacuuming and mopping
- Scrubbing the bathroom
- Washing, folding and putting away all laundry (bonus points to anyone who actually achieves this in 1 day!)
- Wiping down all benches
- Dusting all surfaces
- Sorting through clutter
- Changing all bed linen
Now, if you have little ones this can be a challenge. We suggest getting children involved once they hit 3. They can assist with wiping down benches (all Resparkle products are 100% natural and safe to use with children) and putting toys away for example. Husbands and partners on the other hand? There’s no “get out of jail free” card available to them so make sure you’re splitting the weekly clean 50/50.
4. Upkeep only during the week
Take the pressure off and just concentrate on the bare minimum when life gets crazy. Sometimes the mere thought of the amount of laundry to fold can send us into a tailspin, so? Don’t fret!
A quick wipe of the kitchen benches, lighting a gorgeous candle and picking up a few toys here and there can do wonders for the overall feel of the house. Seriously, as long as the kids are fed and the house is habitable, you get a A+++ from us.
