4 habits to teach yourself to keep a clean and tidy home

These habits will help you maintain a clean and tidy home


Are you like us and still wondering how others manage to keep their house so clean and tidy? With us, there always seems to be random stuff, from shoes to laundry to magazines. Especially if you have young children, it can be difficult to keep your house tidy. A neat house is in fact to maintain oneself and to have good habits.

1. Fold the laundry right away

You may not mind doing the laundry, but you're having trouble keeping up. Are your clean clothes in a basket waiting to be folded when you want? Your clothes don't wrinkle just because of it; it also causes unnecessary clutter around your home. Try to teach yourself how to fold clean laundry as soon as the dryer beeps. Do not use a dryer? Then you need to fold the laundry as soon as you take it out of the dryer.

2. Tidy away shoes

When you get home after a long day, it's very tempting to just sit on the couch and take off your shoes. However, this immediately gives your living room a messy look. Teach yourself and your family members to immediately put the shoes away for them: a shoe closet or other specifically designated place. That way you won't run into random shoes and that means there is less dust and dirt in your home, especially if you take your shoes off right at the door.

3. Do the dishes right away

Do not allow dirty dishes to accumulate in the kitchen, but put them in the dishwasher or wash them right away. If there are already things on the kitchen countertops, it's tempting to add more things to the stack. Learn how to keep the sink clean. In the end, it is much less difficult to put everything in the dishwasher as soon as you finish using it instead of having to put a whole pile of dishes at the end of the day.

4. Wipe down surfaces

Make sure you always have a tea towel handy to wipe up spills on your counter or tables. This way you don't let spills or stains dry out at all times and you won't accidentally put anything on it. You don't want to place the book you're reading on a sticky spill. In addition, your table and counters will always be clean and it looks much cleaner and tidy.
