Ah, there’s nothing like a fresh, clean home environment! But who has time to perform a deep clean on a regular basis? Most days, you are doing all you can just to tackle your daily to-do list, prepare meals, and keep the laundry from piling up on a couch in the living room. When it comes to disinfecting, dusting, and scouring surfaces, those tasks tend to go on the back burner.
You aren’t alone; so, don’t feel like you are a failure if you aren’t deep cleaning once a week. But here’s a secret: you can still make your house look clean and tidy without a time-consuming, in-depth cleaning process. The saying “fake it ‘til you make it” takes on new meaning when it comes to your household chores. Keep reading for three easy tips to fake-clean your home to get optimal results.
#1: Implement a Decluttering Strategy
Picking up the items that family members leave all around the house can feel like a full-time job. By setting a timer for 20 or 30 minutes, you can embark on a speedy decluttering mission to make a big difference in how your home looks and feels without spending all day in pick-up mode.
Go through each room in your home, grabbing anything that looks out of place. If you don’t have time to put them in the proper spot, simply stick them in a laundry basket to get them out of view. By putting the sofa pillows back in place, scooping up the piles of mail, and hanging up the coat that’s been on the chair for a week, you can make a big difference in no time.
#2: Clear the Counters
Kitchen and bathroom counters have a way of collecting everything. You can clear away counters in a few minutes and make the space look much tidier, even without a deep clean. Place items in cabinets or the pantry (nobody looks behind those doors anyway). You can organize another day!
#3: Make the Beds
It seems simple enough and only takes a few minutes, but making the beds is a way to improve the look of the bedrooms instantly. There may be other areas of clutter in the bedroom, but the bed is the focal point. Pulling up the blankets and arranging the throw pillows will ensure the focal point looks its best.
