How Can You Keep Your Home Clean In Under An Hour/Day?

It’s an extremely popular question. Sometimes we have this false perception that cleaning will require hours, if not all day. But does it have to take that long?

Indeed, not everyone enjoys spending hours, if not all day, cleaning or straightening up their home. Not everyone is extraordinarily clean and tidy. But one thing they all have in common is a desire for a spotless house. Some people are exceptional at accomplishing this and can’t bear any clutter; this might be related to how they were raised and instructed as a youngster. They start picking up objects that are lying around or cleaning and dusting places they come upon subconsciously.

But some of us aren’t programmed that way. Some of us are too weary from our working life to begin cleaning up when we come back home, particularly parents with young children who seem to be dedicated to creating as much mess as possible 24 hours a day, seven days a week. And for some of us, it just isn’t in our nature. It’s difficult to describe why, but some of us don’t have the “neat and orderly” gene.

How can we maintain our house clean and neat without spending hours doing so?

Not everyone has all the time in the world to complete cleaning tasks every single day. We understand neither do you, so here’s a little secret. Don’t try to accomplish everything at once! Break it down and work on it a little bit every day.

First and foremost

So, let’s start with the sections that will take the most time to complete, such as the bathrooms and toilet. Cleaning a bathroom takes about 20-30 minutes on average, depending on how unclean it is and how many bathrooms and toilets you have in your home. If you only have one bathroom and one toilet in your house, you could clean the bathroom and toilet once a week on the weekends. However, if you have more than one bathroom in your house, you may clean one bathroom and one toilet on Monday and the other on Tuesday. That’s just an idea; you may choose any day of the week.


Now it’s time to mop and vacuum. Let’s be honest not everyone is going to enjoy vacuuming and mopping floors every single day. Depending on how often your kids make a mess, you could generally clean them every 2 or 3 days. To keep the floor clean, you could typically sweep up the small crumbs kids drop on it. And you can dust (window frames and furnishings) right before you begin vacuuming. You don’t generally have to do them on the same day that you clean my bathroom and toilet. Aside from days, you can do these when you have the time or just because you’re in the mood to do them in one go.


Some elements of the kitchen, particularly the rangehood, can be difficult to clean. It does not, however, need to be polished every day, or perhaps even weekly. You may merely clean it well once or twice a month. Try to wipe the exterior of the range hood every alternate day and wipe the stove and workbench immediately after cooking. Make sure to wipe the dining table immediately after eating to keep them spotless day after day.

The despised dirty dishes, particularly when they stack up in the sink, may make our kitchen appear unclean at times. To avoid this, make it a point to immediately wash any kitchen utensils, dishes, plates, or glasses that you or your children used. It takes around 2-5 minutes if you do it immediately after since none of the food clings to the objects you’re washing. If you really can’t be bothered, you could always place everything in the dishwasher (if you have one) and let it run while you sleep at night, waking up to clean dishes in the morning. But don’t forget to unload the dishwasher!

The Little Things

Now, let’s look at some minor things one can do to keep the room appearing organized. Let me begin with my children’s toys. Like all other children, we assume your kids too pull every single item out of the toybox and leave them littered around in the room. Some of us fellow parents have undoubtedly stepped on a piece of Lego by mistake. Ouch! Yes, it is uncomfortable. It’s excruciating!

To avoid a pile of strewn-about toys, you can politely ask your kids to return them to the toybox when they’re through with them or store away the ones they don’t want to play with longer.

Then there’s the matter of making the bed (s). Making the bed is one of the simplest yet most important jobs. It takes no more than 5 minutes and maybe done as soon as you get up every morning, excluding changing the bedding, which can be done weekly.

As you can see, it doesn’t require hours to clean your house and make it look pretty! All you need is a couple of minutes per day for every area, and it will work wonders!
