We’ve all been there. The sun comes up, the house is a disaster, but the motivation to get the job done is just not there. Unfortunately, not doing anything will only make the situation worse. Letting a mess fester can actually make it harder to muster up the motivation to clean later on. If you are feeling particularly unmotivated, here are a few clever cleaning tips you can get your Omaha home at least semi-presentable.
Clever Cleaning Tips For Your Omaha Home
Set a timer:
This is, by far, one of the most effective ways to get a few things done without feeling chained to the broom and dustpan. Grab your kitchen timer (the timer on your cellphone works great too), and set it for 15 to 20 minutes.
During those 20 minutes, clean as much as you can. We have found that you can do a quick pick-up, unload the dishwasher and start a load of laundry all in 20 minutes. Sometimes we manage to squeeze in vacuuming. If you have a bigger house, you may not get quite as much done, but 20 minutes is enough time to make a dent. You may even find yourself adding a few minutes to the timer because you’ve gotten into a groove.
Turn on the tunes:
There’s nothing like a good beat to get you going. Music is a great way to move faster when you exercise and can make cleaning your Omaha house a little bit more fun too. Try cleaning for one or two songs at a time. You may be surprised how fast the clutter vanishes.
Clean your oven overnight
If you don’t have a self-cleaning oven and you want to avoid cleaners with too many additives. Try an easy over-night routine that nearly eliminates the need to scrub. Heat your oven to 150 degrees, put in a pot of boiling water on the bottom rack and a bowl of 1 cup of ammonia (oven safe bowls only please) in the oven. Shut off the heat and let it set over night. The next day, just add a few drops of dish soap and the ammonia to some warm water and wipe the gook away.
Wrap it up Clever Cleaning Tips:
Use clear wrap on your refrigerator shelves. When it gets dirty, pull it off and add a new layer. You can use shelf liners or plastic wrap. Additionally, to avoid messy clean-ups after dinner, try lining your pans in foil. (You can also use oil on a George Forman Grill) Simply remove the foil and toss when done cooking.
Bonus tip: Buy a removable oven liner. The liner sits on the bottom of your oven and you can easily remove it for quick cleaning.
Bonus-bonus tip: Wrap your stovetop pans in foil. When they’re dirty, toss the foil and rewrap. You will never have to scrub those annoying pans again!
