It’s finally here –  Day 30, the final day of the  “30 Day House Cleaning Challenge”!

You’ve finally cleaned your entire housebedrooms, bathrooms, the kitchen, living room. You’ve even organized your cupboards, drawers and cabinets and you’ve also de-cluttered a bit, wherever and whenever possible.

Your biggest achievement, however, is that you have gotten into the habit of using a daily and weekly cleaning routine to maintain the cleanliness in your house.

And, by now you are exhausted!  … but hang on for just a little bit longer, because you’re  almost done!

Tips to remember during the 30 Day House Cleaning Challenge 

  1. Before you begin, gather all the necessary tools and keep them ready. You could get yourself a cleaning caddy or just use a basket or box.
  2. Decide on a specific amount of time that you can/will spend cleaning and set a timer. Work as quickly as you can within this time and don’t get distracted. (Except if it’s an emergency of some kind!) 
  3. Start cleaning from the top of the room and work your way down. This will prevent dust falling on surfaces that you have already cleaned.
  4. Work from one side of the room to the other side, in a systematic matter, so that you don’t miss any spots.
  5. When the timer goes off, stop working! You can catch up with what you have missed during your next cleaning session.
  6. Use checklists to track your progress and to ensure that you don’t miss out anything. Checklists are especially useful in instances where you cannot complete a task and need to reschedule it.
