Lazy ways to clean a house

Whitsunday Times - - REAL ESTATE -

IT’S spring clean­ing sea­son, but it also hap­pens to be the time when new TV shows are re­leased on pop­u­lar stream­ing ser­vices.

You def­i­nitely want to make your house as live­able as pos­si­ble, but you might also just want to sit down and binge on HBO.

Here are tips to have the best of both worlds.

1. Clean ev­ery­thing in the dish washer

Dish­wash­ers are not just for dishes. House­hold items that can go in your dish­washer in­clude; kitchen sponges, cab­i­net knobs, toys, plas­tic light switch plates, nail clip­pers, soap dishes, kitchen cad­dies, tooth­brush hold­ers, desk ti­dies, sil­i­con oven mitts and trays.

2. Set a timer

No mat­ter how much you get done, you can al­ways clean more. The best way to com­bat this is to set a timer for 20 min­utes and do as much as you can. This not only lim­its the amount of time you spend clean­ing, but it also makes you more pro­duc­tive in your clean­ing.

3. Dis­tract your­self

Try clean­ing with head­phones on while you lis­ten to mu­sic or a pod­cast.

4. Find a place for ev­ery­thing

This re­quires prepa­ra­tion, but if you have a place for ev­ery­thing you can see what’s miss­ing in one glance.
