10 tips to clean your home faster and more efficiently

6. Making the bed

Make your bed as soon as you get up in the morning. That way, your bedroom will immediately look neat and tidy. Want to air out your bed? Neatly fold the duvet so the mattress can breathe, or hang the duvet on the clothesline so it can air as well.

7. Donate

Put a box or bag in every wardrobe and establish a routine with your family that as soon as an item of clothing no longer fits or is no longer worn for other reasons, it gets placed in the bag or box. As soon as the box is full, you can bring it to a charity.

8. Use your appliances

There’s a lot of things you can very easily clean using your appliances. For example, you can do a lot more with your washing machine than you might think. The same goes for your dishwasher. Did you know you can use it to clean toys with?

9. The laundry

Purchase three or four of the same laundry hampers so you can sort your laundry before putting it in the hamper. One for towels and underwear, one for colours, one for whites and possibly a fourth one for delicates or exercise clothing. That way, you don’t have to sort through your dirty laundry before putting it in the machine. You can just put it all in the washing machine without thinking about it.

10. Multitasking

Do you have young children? Use the time they’re having a bath to clean the rest of the bathroom. You can keep an eye on your children while cleaning the sink, mirror and toilet at the same time. You’re using your time much more efficiently that way. Every time you have to wait for something to boil or cook when you’re making dinner, you can wipe off the counters with a cloth, or do some dishes. Never walk to the kitchen without carrying something there.
