3 Effective methods to clean your house

26

Your house must always be clean if you want to feel really good after a busy day of work. What do you do when you get the things out of control, and your home seems an endless crowd of unnecessary objects?

Well … you’re looking for a way to reorganize them. Today, I will present you, 3 effective cleaning methods:

1. Japanese method. Marie Kondo invented this method that very easy to apply. Its basic principle: stay organized, whether you stay in your home or in another (rent, host, etc.).

– Don’t start ordering things until you throw away all the unnecessary objects. This ritual should be done at least once every 2 months;

– Evaluate everything and see what gives you comfort. You certainly don’t need the things that are at the bottom of the wardrobe. Those things can only trigger memories. So don’t live with the idea that maybe you will wear them. This will not happen, most likely, and the space in your closet will be limited;

– Throw away old things with sentimental value. Your memories will not disappear with these totally useless objects;

– Sort things by category;

– Don’t fill the drawers. You have to see all things to figure out what needs to be kept and what not. For example, in the case of a wardrobe, put things vertically;

2. Hugging method. Leo Babauta, who created a blog about minimalism, thinks it’s good to think first of all why you want to buy something. You may have a sense of security, approval or comfort. Think about what you really need and what you think you need.

“Cleaning is more efficient,” says Leo, “if you are dealing with small, small things. Example? If you dropped juice or coffee on the parquet, immediately wipe the traces just in that area. Don’t start to clean the entire surface of the parquet.

– Clean only the areas that are around your arms without walking around the entire room. If you move from one area to another, you can finish cleaning twice as fast as usual.

– Have you decided what things you need? Prepare 3 boxes that you will label as follows: 1. keep; 2. may need it; 3. throw. Box number 2 will stay for a maximum of 6 months on the shelf. Then you have to throw away what you don’t use.

3. Messies anonymous method. This method was implemented in 1982 by Sandra Felton, a US woman who lost her dissertation in her own home. Tired of blaming herself, Sandra decided to make her own rules:

– It’s easier to clean if you maintain order. If there is order and every object has its place in the house, nothing will be easier than cleaning the house.

– Teach the little ones to treat cleaning as a playing. Give them rewards after doing positive things about it.

– Uses 3 labeled boxes as follows: 1 throw, 2 to be sold or 3 to be deposited. Ultimately, there should be only necessary things in the house.

– If a task lasts for less than 30 seconds (eg washing a dish), do it on the spot;

– From time to time, look at your house as if it isn’t yours. That’s how you will figure out more easily what to do.
