School’s out for the summer, kids are home and schedules are thrown out the door. Keeping your house cleaned during the summer when everyone is home can be a challenge.
The best way to keep it clean is to adopt simple habits to do during the week so there is less to do at the end of the week. They say it takes an average of 21 days to form a habit so now is a great time to start these 5 habits daily everyone in the family can do for a neater, cleaner home.
Make the Bed Every Morning
This is a task everyone in the household can do. It only takes a few minutes of your time to make up the bed each morning and you will feel so much better when you do. Plus, it makes the room look neat and tidy.
Empty the Dishwasher and Sink before Bed
Make it a habit to put all dishes away from the sink and dishwasher before you go to bed. That way you can wake up to a shiny sink with no dishes spilling out making it easier to prepare for the next meal.
Run the Vacuum Daily
And by running the vacuum daily, I mean having Neato Robotics do the work for you. It literally does all the work for you while you get other things done. Simply tell it to go via the app or with a click of the button.
The sleek and clean design looks great with any home decor. The shape is unique compared to other robot vacuums. It is in the shape of a D rather than round making it easy to get in corners and along the edges. And the suction is 20% more powerful than leading competitors to pick up any mess left behind, even pet hair.
Two of my favorite Neato Robotic vacuums are the D8 and D4.The Neato D8 Intelligent Robot Vacuum is beyond intelligent. It has a big brush and dirt bin that can go from carpet, hardwood or tile, cleaning up to 750 square feet on one single charge. If you have an extra tough area switch to Turbo mode for a deeper suction and speed to make sure it gets every last speck of dirt.
The Neato D4 is a great starter robot vacuum and affordable. It has a LaserSmart technology making it easy to navigate through your home, can go on hardwood, carpet or tile and lasts up to 75 minutes of battery life.
Do a Load or Two of Laundry Everyday
So this task will depend on how much laundry you accumulate during the week. Doing one or two loads of laundry a day and actually putting it away will be less tedious than doing it all on one day.
Put Things Away as you Get Them Out
Simple is as simple does. Instead of leaving the mess, put it away when you’re done. This makes less to clean up and keeps your house tidy all week.
I hope these cleaning habits help you along the way throughout the summer while the kids are home and maybe carry back over when they get back in school.
