I am definitely more productive, focused and happy when my home is neat and clean. Unfortunately, I don’t like cleaning too much. I avoid it when I can, so I’ve been forced to find some ways to make easier to achieve an ‘everyday clean‘ home
The first step really doesn’t even involve cleaning. If you put in the time to organize and manage things – your home automatically appears cleaner. A bathroom countertop strewn with products does not look very clean. But take the time to develop a system where everything has it’s place and your bathroom will always appear cleaner.
My kids have their own bathroom (thank goodness) but it also doubles as a guest bathroom. I had to tackle the clutter on our open shelves. My solution was to give the dark trim a fresh coat of white paint to match the shelves and work in some organization.
Tips for Organizing Open Shelving
- Use baskets and bins to hide products and create decorative interest
- Fill in gaps with decorative items – like vases, candles and plants.
- Keep towels and linens folded neatly
- Think about what you use often and make sure it has easy access.

Simplify the How
Think about how you’re cleaning. For me, I’m less likely to clean if I have to bring out all sorts of cleaning supplies. Not gonna happen. So, I have a ‘dream-team’ of amazing products from Clorox that help me clean quickly and easily. No fuss.
First up, the kitchen. The Clorox Pump ‘N Clean Kitchen & Dish Cleaner puts the cleaner at your fingertips. Just pump the cleaner onto a paper towel or rag and go – it’s so convenient! This multipurpose, multisurface cleaning solution is food-safe and you can clean up with one hand. This product keeps my kitchen spotless.
Bathrooms can be a challenge to clean. With the Clorox Bathroom ScrubSingles, it doesn’t have to be such a lengthy chore. These bathroom pads come preloaded with Clorox cleaner. You can use these double-sided pads on showers, sinks, toilets, faucets, walls, floors and more. Just clean and toss.
Finally, tackle the dust bunnies with Clorox Triple Action Dust Wipes.
The wipes are dry, non-abrasive and feature a weave that helps to trap dust, hair and more! You can dust an entire room in no time, with just one wipe. I love being able to forget the duster, rag and broom. Tip: These are available in XL Size which fit any standard sweeper!
Now that you have the house clean, make a schedule. You’re busy and there’s no need to spend hours cleaning. Putting tasks on a rotation will help you get to everything without feeling the time-pinch of cleaning. I keep mine on a clipboard that I hang inside my cleaning cabinet – easy to grab and check off tasks.
