Tips to help clean your house

If you’re like me, you hate to clean. It’s one of my least favorite mom life chores. But it must be done.

It is possible to make it a little more fun, though. Read on to find out how to manage cleaning day.

Plan your stages

The goal of cleaning day, for me, is to get the house cleaned up as quickly as possible. To make this happen, I figured out that organizing the chores into stages helps to make it more efficient.

And just because cleaning is the last thing I want to be doing with my time, doesn’t mean that it has to be totally unbearable. This housecleaning music makes it feel a little more like a party.

Turn on the music

Blasting music makes everything a little bit better. So I created a playlist of upbeat cleaning music.

This is perfect house-cleaning music. These songs naturally make you want to sing along and dance your buns off. These are good songs to get you moving. And although they are good songs to listen to while cleaning, they are not clean songs.

My kids are older and we use songs to start conversations. We also talk about acceptable language, etc. But music is an expression that we receive from the artist. Just know, there are curse words.

Get the kids involved

The first phase of cleaning day is the kids have to straighten the house and put away anything that doesn’t belong where it lies.

This phase happens the night before I plan to really clean the house. This idea can seem really overwhelming to kids so I try to help them break it down a little more.

My kids are 12 and 15 so they are perfectly capable of helping around the house but I do know their limits.

In each room, I have them gather all the loose items that are laying around and group them into piles depending on whose item it is. From there, they make piles of where the items will go.

Giving them some housecleaning music gets them out of their head, where they are most likely thinking of how they would rather be playing video games.

Gather supplies

Before I start to clean, I like to get out everything that I’ll need so I don’t have to dig around when I’m in the groove.

Once that housecleaning music starts, you don’t want to have to stop. While I might not love clean, I absolutely want quality products.

Lemi Shine products are non-toxic and made with 100% natural citrus extracts. They’re also biodegradable and septic system-friendly.

Clean alone

I prefer to clean the house when I am the only one home. This way, I just blare my housecleaning music and get to work. I start at one end of the house and work my way through, ending up in the kitchen last.

Cleaning alone means you can focus, you can work fast, and get through your housework quickly.

I save the kitchen for last because if I don’t get to it before the kids get home from school, it’s a fairly low traffic area in our house and I can continue to clean without obstacles.

This Lemi Shine Glass + Surface Cleaner creates an invisible barrier that helps surfaces resist dust, tiny fingerprints and water spots! That makes things easier to clean next time. That’s genius. I really like that feature.

I encourage you to make cleaning the house, a necessary chore, more fun and appealing so that you’ll actually clean. With the right house cleaning music, cleaning is much more enjoyable.
