To keep your home clean sometimes can be extremely time-consuming. Especially when you have little kids and go to work. So you need to use the time wisely if you want to have a clean home. In this article, I will show you the 2 hour house cleaning plan I am using.
Bedrooms and Laundry
The first thing you want to do is the laundry. That way while you do the rest of the chores, the washing machine will finish the laundry. Go to every room and pick up all the dirty laundry. If you have little kids check under the beds, in the closets or sometimes even behind the furniture. Sometimes, when I tell my little son to clean his room, he hides his dirty clothes and toys under the bed. Check the time so you know when you have to go back to take the laundry from the washing machine and put them in the dryer. After that, you can add another load to the washing machine.
The same thing can be done with the dishes. Put them in the dishwasher before you start the rest of the cleaning.
Refresh the bed by sprinkling baking soda onto the mattress and leave it until you are cleaning the other rooms. This will help remove any unwanted odors or moisture from the mattress.
Dust and tidy up
Take the empty laundry basket and go to every room to pick up anything that isn’t supposed to be in that room, moving it to the correct one. Once you are sure everything is where it belongs, start dusting. This will make everything shine. For this step, you will need a microfiber cloth, water, and a fiber duster. If you do this on a regular basis your job will be much easier and you will be able to finish sooner. Start using the fiber duster. If you left some dust behind sprinkle some water and run it over with the microfiber cloth. The wet cloth will ensure no dust particles go flying in the air.
Bathrooms and Kitchen
After you are done with the dusting move onto the bathrooms. Put some toilet cleaner on the toilet so it can do its job while you clean the rest. Take a bucket of warm soapy water and a clean cloth. Start wiping the tiles on the walls, counters, cabinets, and mirrors. After you are done with the wiping rinse the toilet from the cleaner.
Vacuum the carpets and rugs
Take out the vacuum and vacuum the carpets rugs. You can use the brush attachment to pick up any hairs stuck on the carpets. You can sprinkle some baking soda on the carpets. It will help remove the unwanted smells. Don’t forget to remove the soda from the bedroom mattress as well. Use the vacuum. If you have a robotic vacuum it will make your life much easier.

Mop the floors
After you are done with the vacuuming use some warm water to mop the hardwood floors. This will remove all the dust and stubborn dirt from the floors and make them shine. You can use a floor cleaner as well.
Take out the laundry from the dryer, fold it and put it away. Replace all the towels in the bathroom and kitchen. Take out the clean dishes from the dishwasher.
