Woman ready to clean her apartmentAs the new year approaches, we start to make our plans, and yes -resolutions, for the upcoming year. The fresh start of a new year is a perfect time to get organized and make a fresh start on your cleaning routine! Without further ado, here are 5 New Year’s resolution cleaning ideas to get you started:

1) Set aside a designated time each week for cleaning. They say it takes anywhere from 18 days to 2 months to form a new habit – no time like the present to get started. Cleaning at a designated time each day or week can help to ensure that your home stays clean and organized, and it can also help you to stay on top of tasks that may otherwise pile up.

2) Declutter your living space. The less “stuff” there is, the easier it is to clean. Removing unnecessary items from your home can make it feel more spacious and organized, and make for a faster, easier cleanup.

3) Create a cleaning schedule. A cleaning schedule can help you to plan out your cleaning tasks to make sure that you don’t miss anything and hold you accountable for the tasks you enjoy the least. Create a schedule for daily, weekly, and monthly tasks.

4) Invest in high-quality cleaning supplies. Using the right cleaning supplies can make cleaning tasks easier and more effective. Look for products that are environmentally friendly and gentle on surfaces.

5) Make cleaning a family activity. Involve everyone in the household in the cleaning process, even the kids. When you share and divide the workload, you make it feel less overwhelming. You can assign tasks based on each person’s abilities and schedule. See our tips for encouraging your child to help with household chores.
