Keeping your house clean can feel overwhelming, especially with a busy schedule. However, with a few steps, you can maintain a tidy home without spending hours cleaning each day. Here are easy housecleaning tips for every room you can use to keep your home clean and organized.

Tips for Housecleaning

Clean the Living Room

To clean up living areas, dust all surfaces, including furniture, shelves, and electronics, with a microfiber cloth. Work from top to bottom, finishing with the floor. Vacuum or sweep the floor, paying special attention to corners and underneath furniture. After cleaning, fluff decorative pillows and cushions, and straighten up blankets or throws.


Make the bed first thing every morning to start your day with a clean and tidy room. Put away clothes, shoes, and accessories lying around and cluttering the space. Dust the surfaces, including dressers, nightstands, and lamps. Finally, sweep or vacuum to clean the floor, including under the bed.

Bathroom Cleaning Tips

When cleaning your bathroom, apply cleanser to stubborn stains and difficult-to-clean areas. Allow time for the cleaning products to work while you tidy the rest of the room.

Wipe the sink, faucet, and countertops with an all-purpose disinfecting cleaner. Clean the mirror and disinfect sink handles, door knobs, and light switches. Scrub the toilet bowl, clean the toilet’s exterior, and clean the shower and tub. Sweep and mop the floor to finish.


To tidy your kitchen, dust the tops of the cabinets. Next, clean countertops, stovetops, and appliances, with an all-purpose cleaner. Wash the dishes and put them away, or load them into the dishwasher so that you can clean the sink. Scrub it with a commercial cleaning product, or make your own. Water and baking soda create a paste that’s effective for gentle scrubbing. Take the trash out and clean the garbage bin. Finally, sweep the floor and mop.

Housecleaning Tips for Hallways and Entryways

Tidy the area by hanging coats, umbrellas, or jackets lying around. Put away shoes and scarves to declutter the space. Dust the entryway surfaces with a microfiber cloth, including tables and picture frames. Sweep the floor to remove dirt or debris.

These easy steps help you quickly clean and organize the house without spending hours each day. By incorporating these tasks into your daily routine, you will maintain a neat, organized home you can feel proud of.
