What’s on your New Year’s resolution list for this year?
While saving money, exercising more, or learning a new skill are some of the more popular goals, we promise our cleaning resolutions for a healthier home will be much easier to stick to.
This Year’s 6 Best Cleaning Resolutions
Thanks to some of the knowledge we discovered in 2021, keeping a clean and organised home in 2022 will be a cinch.
1 I Will Simplify My Cleaning Routine
Cleaning your house effectively and efficiently doesn’t have to be the massive chore you think. In fact, taking on these 7 tasks daily is a sure-fire way to keep your home always tidy.
We’re big fans of finding new ways of doing things at Electrodry, especially if it makes life more convenient. Inject a little bit of that concept into your bathroom cleaning routine with these speedy tips for getting it done in just 15 minutes.
Who said cleaning had to be unenjoyable? The spring cleaning routine of 2021 was definitely more fun, thanks to this article – try these out for yourself.
2 I Will Not Let The Kids Derail My Clean House
As much as we love our children, they’re not known for their neatness.
In 2021, we explored some ways that you can master a messy kid’s bedroom and better yet, help them to take responsibility for their own space as well.
For anyone with kids, there are probably a few things that spring to mind when thinking about the worst messes they make. We collated the five worst ones and gave you some great tactics to get them cleaned up in no time.
If there is one thing kids like more than making a mess, it’s playing with their toys. Children’s toys often get touched by grubby fingers, chewed on, licked or coughed on, so it makes sense they’re a favourite for germs too. This is how you should be cleaning them.
3 I Will Start Renovation Jobs
Getting a start on sprucing up your home doesn’t have to mean engaging a builder. In fact, there are plenty of jobs that you can take on at home that can make an impressive difference to the overall aesthetic.
These easy do-it-yourself jobs are simple to do, cost-effective, and can transform your home.
Are you thinking of selling in 2022? Knowing how to get your home ready for sale can be a challenge. We spoke to a property expert and found out some fantastic ways you can get prepared before open day.
We also discovered some great ways to inject personality into a rental, and really make it feel like your own home.
4 I Will Create A Healthy Home
Keeping healthy in our homes (and everywhere else!) remained a priority in 2021. These articles contained some great tips to maintain a healthy home in the new year.
We also continued our love for natural cleaners and this year, awarded the best uses of baking soda, while finally putting to rest the natural cleaning debate: is vinegar or baking soda a better cleaner?
5 I Will Declutter And Organise My Home
Maintaining an organised home is good juju – experts actually say that if you have a lot of clutter in your home, the more it interferes with the pleasure you feel in that environment.
It makes sense; an organised home will help your mind feel more organised.
So, what is an organised home? In simple terms, it means that everything has a place – get some great storage boxes, get everything organised into categories/sections and you’ll be amazed how much easier it is to do a quick pick up when you need to.
These are a few projects you can get stuck into this year.
For some simpler hacks, this article from our 2020 archive has some wonderful ways to get started.
6 I Will Outsource My Cleaning
The start of a new year is a great opportunity to shake things up and share the load.
Older kids should be able to help out with the cleaning – one of our most popular articles from a few years back was about the best jobs that kids can help out with at home.
We’re living in a shared economy at the moment, so why wouldn’t you outsource your cleaning? Professional house cleaners will come at a cost (some are more affordable than you’d think) but freeing up your time does mean more time with your loved ones.
If you’re not sure about having a professional clean your whole house, just hire one to at least do your bathrooms and/or floors – you’ll be amazed at how much that frees up your life for other, more exciting activities.
