  1. “Housekeeping is like being caught in a revolving door.” – Marcelene Cox

In many ways cleaning is a constant process. No matter how much you clean one week by the next that same area will have become dirty and dust will have piled up. This is especially true for businesses with high foot traffic and homes occupied by multiple people. However, there are things that you can do to minimize the amount you have to do each week. Cleaning and tidying up as you go or making cleaning a daily or regular part of your routine can help minimize dust build up and make it so that cleaning each week isn’t such a momentous task.

  1. “Nothing inspires cleanliness more than an unexpected guest.” – Radhika Mundra

Truer words were never spoken! Nothing quite inspires us to spruce up our space and make it look as good as possible as a surprise inspection or an unexpected house guest! Some helpful tips for when this happens are to open the windows as soon as you can to circulate the air and get rid of any lingering smells and make sure you wipe down and disinfect areas near the front door or entrance to make sure that your space smells clean and is safe when your guests arrive. If you can only clean one area in the time you have then make it the bathroom. If your bathroom is dirty, guests or visitors will assume the rest of your space is too!

  1. “You don’t get anything clean without getting something else dirty.” – Cecil Baxter

This is especially true when it comes to the cleaning supplies and tools you use often. We often focus on cleaning what appears dirty to us, but often forget to clean the tools and products we use to do the job. For instance, most of us use our mops frequently and remember to clean the bucket we are using, but not the mop head. A lot of people think that putting sponges and brushes in the dishwasher is the best way to clean them when in fact doing so is quite ineffective. In fact, one of the best ways to clean sponges and brushes is with hot water and diluted bleach.

  1. “Everybody wants to save the earth; no one wants to help mom do the dishes.” – P.J. O’Rourke

This one is for all the moms, dads, and parents out there who feel underappreciated and the tireless employees who feel like they’re always the ones left cleaning up. People love to get behind lofty goals and put their time and energy into that but are often unwilling to do the simple tasks that can make a big difference to both the planet and the people who care for them or their business. If you’re having trouble getting your kids to help with the dishes try explaining why cleaning them is necessary, how to clean certain items, and why it’s important for everyone’s health that the dishes get cleaned properly. You can also try putting on their favourite music and if they’re old enough leave the room and give them space to clean their way.
