How to Clean Your House in 20 Minutes a Day (Over 30 days)

Cleaning your house can seem like a daunting and time-consuming task, especially if you have a busy lifestyle. But it doesn't have to be! With these quick house cleaning tips and hacks, you can have your house cleaned in just 20 minutes a day over the course of 30 days. After reading and following the tips in this post, you will no longer have to waste your Saturdays deep cleaning your home. Read on to learn how to clean your house in 20 minutes a day (over 30 days)!

The rules

#1 Deal with what comes through the door

Create a space to unload the items you bring into the house and then take a few seconds to sort, trash, or put things away.

#2 Do your dishes after each meal

Don't let your dishwashing turn into an overwhelming monster of a chore. We know, cooking and then washing dishes is a huge commitment. But, there's no better way to ensure your kitchen stays spotlessly clean.

#3 Little things make laundry easier

Do a load of laundry (or two each day), so you don't get weighed down by mountains of clothes, towels, and linens.

#4 Music (almost) makes housework fun

No one really enjoys housework, singing to your favorite playlist can make the daunting tasks seem like a cleaning dance break.

#5 Set a timer

Each of the tasks on the schedule below shouldn't take more than 20 minutes. Knowing that you've set a timer will help keep you focused and lessen the chance of distractions. Now we move onto how to clean your house in 20 minutes over a 30 day schedule!
