Do you have guests coming over? A last minute play date? Or are you tired of looking at the chaos but don’t feel like going on an all out cleaning spree?
Speed cleaning is the way to go.
You will need :
A trash bag –
To quickly pick up any of the trash lying around
A laundry basket –
Or two laundry baskets. Depending on how many out of place items you have lying around. You will be using the basket for all of the items that are in the wrong rooms. When you find an item that is out of place, put it in the basket and move on to the next item. Continue doing this until you finish the whole room.
A candle –
Candles, or wax melts, make the house smell nice and clean. Whenever I light a candle or turn on my scentsy warmer, my house instantly feels and smells cleaner.
Or Netflix. Turn up the jams and dance while you clean. Or turn on the TV and get to work.
Shower and put on clean clothes. Dress to shoes if you’d like. I always have more motivation when I get up and get dressed.
Figure out where you want to start.
Do you want to start in the messiest room? The most visited room? The easiest room? Take your pick and jump in!
The basics –
The most important part of speed cleaning, is speed. Only do the basics. Clean the most important rooms, the rooms where everyone will be – rooms like :
Dining room (if needed)
Any other room of significance (guest bedroom, kids’ room, ect.)
