Looking for cleaning tips to make cleaning your home easier? Top homemaking bloggers share their favorite cleaning tips to help you get your home clean in no time.
A freshly deep cleaned home is such a lovely thing. In some ways I look forward to things like spring cleaning, the end results are great but it can be a lot of work.
We’ve been in this house for two years this April and it’s time to look at our organization and fix things that aren’t working. I also need to get rid of some stuff. It’s a small home, which means less time cleaning but also means you have to stay on top of clutter.
I asked some of my favorite homemaking bloggers for their cleaning tips because homemaking bloggers have some of the best cleaning tips! Of course, I need to share these great tips with you as well, can’t keep all of this to myself.
The Best Cleaning Tips
Jobs that Take 10 Minutes or Less
There are likely times when cleaning is just overwhelming. Breaking larger tasks up into bite-size pieces can really help you overcome the panic and feeling of being overwhelmed. I think most of us can spare ten minutes.
A Modern Homestead has a great list of jobs that take 10 minutes or less and will have your home spotless in no time. I love all of her great recipes, frugal living tips, and homesteading information.
Getting Organized With Banker Boxes
So often if you look at Pinterest for organizing tips you are left feeling like you need to spend a small fortune on fancy organizers. While I love a trip to the Container Store and enjoy some of those fancy organizers, simple is often just as good if not better.
Life with Dee has a great idea for affordable and functional organizing using Banker Boxes. I love all of the advice she shares for having a beautiful and intentional life. And I’m not just saying that because she happens to be my mom.
We are used a lot of Bankers Boxes when we moved. They are easy to use since they have handles, we had some around, and they are pretty cheap. We were able to use some boxes multiple times since we didn’t have to move all at once. And now once we are done with them I can use them for some organizing.
Green Cleaning Ingredients You Should Never Mix
You know I love green cleaning. There are very few cleaners I buy anymore because I prefer making them myself. They are cheap, effective, and I know what’s in them.
There are some things to remember when making green cleaners though. Some of the great natural ingredients shouldn’t be mixed. When somethings are mixed they can neutralize each other or even create a dangerous reaction.
Bren Did is always sharing such great information and projects, including great homemade cleaner recipes. She also has shared which green cleaning ingredients shouldn’t be mixed so you can make better and safer cleaners.
Cleaning Your Counters with Vinegar
Speaking of green cleaning ingredients, vinegar is one of my favorites! It can do so much and is totally safe. I buy it by the gallon I use so much of it.
You can now even buy pre-made vinegar cleaners! So those that aren’t into the DIY thing can still have awesome, safe cleaners. I love those great products like this that are now hitting the market.
Simple Ways to Deep Clean & Organize Your Home
Like I said I need to do some decluttering and spring cleaning. I always love reading people’s tips on these topics because it’s often nice to try something new.
Organized Motherhood has some really great deep cleaning and organization tips, including how to maintain a clean home. Her blog is always a great place to go for organization tips that are practical.
What to do When Your Whole House is a Mess
Sometimes things happen and our homes just get out of hand. Maybe it’s an illness or just too much on our plates. It happens and it can be overwhelming.
Artful Homemaking has a great emergency cleaning plan that can help you get your house in order when the whole thing is a mess. Don’t forget to check out her other great posts on homemaking while you are over there. She also has some delicious recipes.
I hope you enjoyed these tips as much as I did. If you have a great cleaning tip share in the comments. I’d also love to hear who are your favorite homemaking bloggers. I’d love to find some new blogs to check out.
