Learning how to clean when you don’t have time is hard. Your busy schedule can often feel impossible. You get up, go to work, and come home trying to get everything done before you get up and do it all again the next day – it’s overwhelming.

Diamond Maids wants to share tips to show you how to keep your home clean when you don’t have time.

Let go of perfection.

No one is perfect, and your home doesn’t need to be either. It can be hard to let go of a perfect-looking home, but it’s not more important than your health and well-being. If you must, put off folding the towels till tomorrow or leave the dishes till the morning because you didn’t sleep well.

Choose one thing that needs to be done right now.

Don’t feel the need to work on everything right that second. Find one area or thing that you can work on for the day. You can fold laundry, do dishes, clean your room, pick up the kitchen, etc., and focus solely on one thing. By doing this, you’ll feel more accomplished for the day, knowing you got something done successfully.

How to keep your home clean when you don’t have time: Schedules and Multitasking

Set a timer

When you get home or have fifteen free minutes, set a timer and see how much you can complete. It’s often amazing how much you can get done in such a short amount of time. If you get distracted with a phone timer, try setting the stove or microwave timer. Timing yourself will limit the temptation to check Social Media again before cleaning.

Be careful when Multitasking.

Sometimes it can feel like you’re accomplishing more when you multitask, but that’s not always true. When you’re trying to focus on too much at once, it can take you longer to figure out what to do next, and you can even get distracted. We recommend that if you’re cleaning your room or doing a load of laundry, for example, you continue doing that one job.

Rather than trying to clean your room, fold laundry, cook dinner, do the dishes, etc. Stay with one chore until it’s finished.
