Setting aside 20 minutes for a quick daily house cleanup will help your maintenance routine feel more manageable and less overwhelming.
Of course, the once-a-month deep cleaning tasks are important and necessary, but by keeping up with a daily house cleanup you’ll make everything much simpler to handle.
Here are our best tips for an easy daily cleaning routine.
Easy Daily Cleaning Routine
Giving everything in your home its own place will help you pick up quickly when you know where things need to go. Think about the areas you use on a daily basis that could benefit from a daily pick-up, like the kitchen, bathroom(s), bedroom(s), and living room, and focus on tackling those areas.
Set your Time Timer for 20 minutes and let’s get to it!
Kitchen: 3 minutes
Clean up as you cook every meal to reduce time cleaning up messes at the end of the day. Then, in the evening:
Bathroom: 2 minutes
Use a daily shower spray on your shower, tile, and bathtub to quick-clean after you shower every day. Then, every day:
Bedroom: 2 minutes
Living room: 3 minutes

The rest: 10 minutes
With your remaining 10 minutes, break up the biggest cleaning tasks to complete just one every day. By the end of the week, you’ll be in good shape and ready to enjoy your weekend, with time for those pesky weekly or monthly deep-cleaning tasks as needed.
Here are a few tasks to manage once a week for easy home care: choose one task to complete each weekday.
