While some enjoy keeping the home spotless, there are those who don’t look forward to a scheduled general cleaning. It’s understandable—we’d rather take a break and relish a quick nap than declutter or organize our belongings. However, as much as we dread dealing with cleaning schedules, tiny tasks do contribute to a greater good, like making home maintenance easier in the long run. To help you get into the groove of accomplishing small tasks and achieve a spic-and-span space, here are six habits that you can incorporate into your routine:

Make the bed.

A neat bed can contribute to the overall vibe of your bedroom. Instead of rushing out the door without folding your blanket or fluffing your pillows, make an effort to fix the sheets and prep it for another rewarding slumber. It will only take a few minutes of your time and you can do it before heading to the bathroom.

Maximize your organizers and storage nooks.

Having a spot for big items and small accessories can help you keep things in place. Make sure you have catchalls for loose change and keys, an organizer for bills and documents, and bins for other essentials. Don’t forget to return things to its proper place and that you regularly check your storage centers for misplaced items.

Clean as you go.

Whether it’s the kitchen or the dining area, it’s a must that you wash the dirty dishes, pots, and pans right after you cook or enjoy a meal. Sparkling kitchen and dining areas can make your home look brighter and more inviting.

Dust the surfaces.

Thick dust on tables and other pieces of furniture aren’t welcome. These may cause allergies and other skin problems. Keep dust from taking over your home by regularly dusting the surfaces and making it part of your cleaning routine.

Sweep and mop the floor.

Avoid grime buildup and achieve shiny floors by sweeping and mopping the floor daily. Focus on busy areas like the kitchen and dining areas where spills and stains are inevitable. Getting rid of these splatters immediately will keep it from sticking to the surface.
