Set a 30-minute clock that will help speed clean your home if you have a very short time of cleaning.
Collect your cleaning tools
You will need:
- 2 cloths – 1 for cleaning and 1 for shining
- Cleaning wipes
- Multi-purpose Cleaner
- Broom, dustpan & brush and Vacuum
- Black dust bin bags
- Laundry basket
Do not worry if you don’t have all the items, just work with ease with the tools what you have?
Where will your guests like to sit think? The kitchen or dining table? The living room. Focus on the room they will be. The bathroom and the entrance area and other rooms can be left for cleaning after.
Working and setting up timer
Just an ordinary watch will do. You need to divide the 30 minutes into three slots each of 10 minutes. Giving a deadline will give you a feeling to get everything done and help prioritize the cleaning job.
Clean the clutter
Before you can start to open the windows and let some fresh air come in
The first 10 minutes is spent on cleaning and removing the clutter time. Remove any rubbish and trash from the priority rooms, e.g. the kitchen or living room, the hallway, and bathroom. Collect the rubbish and trash and put it in a black bin bag and dump any clutter into a laundry basket. Take the time to empty any visible bins.
Dust and wipe surfaces
Clean sweep and wipe down any surfaces with a cleaning cloth. Spray all-purpose cleaner than clean with the second cloth.
To really save time, wipe the surface using cleaning wipes. They clean the dust and give the surfaces a spotless shine.
For mirrors, a nice and quick wipe. A clean and shiny mirror makes the room look neat and tidy. Just before you go into the final 10 minutes, close the windows and spray perfume or an air freshener in the bathroom and priority rooms.
Give your home a sweep or a vacuum
Use the final 10 minutes to sweep or vacuum the priority rooms. Take a cleaning wipe and go over to the areas on the floor that have any visible dirt and spots. The cleaning wipe gives a shine if you do not have for mopping.
Final tip: if you have any snacks to serve, keep them out on the table for the guests. If you’re making the tea, they will be busy checking and eating into them instead of looking around the home – and noticing anything.
Finally, you are done…!
