Shake Up Your Cleaning Routine


Are there ways to clean better? Conduct a quick appraisal of your routine with these 5 simple steps.

Identify Cleaning Tasks

Start from zero with a clean slate. Walk around your home with pen and paper or a notes app, and make a list of the cleaning tasks for each room. Order them from left to right, top to bottom (ceiling to floor). This is the Molly Maid way, and the most efficient cleaning approach! Get family or roommates involved, and assign jobs. Many hands make light work.

Select Frequency

Not everything on your list needs to be cleaned daily or even weekly. Unsure of how often to clean linens or dust a ceiling fan? Typically, the kitchen and bathroom need more cleaning than private spaces such as bedrooms. And, your lifestyle is also a consideration, do you entertain, travel often, have a big family or live alone? These factors will impact how often you need to clean.

Build Cleaning Arsenal

Once you have a plan, look at each of your chores and aim for efficiencies. New products may help you with your tasks, not to mention innovative ideas found online. Switching to microfibre cloths can improve your efforts or putting a soap filled dish wand in the shower (for post-shower scrubbing), while an old toothbrush may be just what you need for cleaning those hard to reach places.

Choose Natural Products

You don’t need harsh chemicals to clean your home. And you don’t need to spend a fortune on cleaning supplies. Natural DIY cleaning products can be just as effective as store bought ones and much cheaper. Not to mention, they’re eco-friendly! Add your favourite essential oil and a custom label, you’ll be surprised at how fun it can be.
