3… 2… 1… Happy New Year! I hope the celebration that occurred when the clock struck midnight was easy to clean up, unlike my home where someone unleashed Silly String onto the room. (Pro tip for cleaning up Silly String: tackle it immediately to prevent staining! If you’re too late, get the stain out with cold water, scrubbing gently with white vinegar or Red Juice.)
So it’s a new year, with new resolutions, plans, and intentions. If you’re like me, one of your resolutions for this year is to keep your home as clean as possible so that you always have a calm, orderly sanctuary to retreat to once the work day is done. Now’s your chance to stay on top of all cleaning-related chores so that you have a cozy and clean house you love coming home to.
Here’s a shortcut that you might not have considered: invest in one of our cleaning aprons to be efficient while you work your way from room to room around the house. After you load it up with all the tools you need— cleaning cloths, Red Juice, duster, and brushes—you will save yourself from dashing back and forth to grab various cleaning tools because you have them all strapped around your waist while you clean. Unless, of course, you’re trying to get more steps for your Fitbit’s daily goal. Then you can run around and clean as inefficiently as you’d like.
It might seem counter-intuitive to buy something to help you declutter, but we swear by our Clutter Control book. This ebook is full of tips about how to maintain your home on a day-to-day basis and keep your clutter under control. It will help you get rid of all the stuff that you jammed into the closet to forget about, but that you know is still there, taunting you. There are a few simple rules that can go a long way to helping you tame the clutter in your house:
- When in doubt, throw it out.
- Use it or lose it.
- Efficiency counts, so store things in a way that makes sense.
