If you’re loyal to a favorite all-purpose spray, it’s worth exploring a fresh take on cleaning your space: disinfectant wipes. These convenient squares make it extra easy to freshen up kitchens, bathrooms, cars, and even sticky fingers.
How to Clean Your House Fast (Using Eco-Friendly Cleansers)
The eco-friendly movement is gaining traction for a reason: the more we learn about popular chemicals, the more we realize how harmful they may be. Plus, there’s often a plant-based alternative in nature that can get the job done. Once you’ve traded out conventional sprays, wipes, and gels for eco-friendly options, it’s time to get to work. Here are a few tips that’ll make cleaning the house even easier.
- Work in time blocks: Instead of tackling the entire house at once, set the timer for anywhere between 10 and 20 minutes per day, then do as much as you can within that time frame.
- Designate a clutter zone: Instead of dealing with piles all around the house, try to find a place where clutter can live temporarily. Packages and mail, jackets, and other items can easily take over, but if you keep them in one place (and deal with them in a reasonable time frame), it’ll help.
- Spray after each shower: Get in the habit of spraying a nontoxic cleaner in your shower after every wash. This helps avoid buildup and allows you to go a few more days before your next deep clean.
- Dinner clean up: Make the last kitchen task of the evening a quick wipe down. That way you’ll come into your space the next morning and find clean countertops, not crumbs.
