So if cleaning isn't your absolute favorite thing in the world to do then keep reading! This post is actually great for you.
And if you are a clean-o-maniatic and the scent of Windex makes your heart your heart go pitter pat, then is also a great post for you as well!
I think most of us can tolerate cleaning on some level. But when someone mentions deep cleaning...we kind of cringe inside; and there are always a million reasons not to deep cleaning.
"Oh yeah...I have to....research armadillo diets..."
It's obviously true that some deep cleaning projects can take a decent amount of time, but today I want to share 4 super easy projects to deep clean your home that take 30 minutes of less.
Project number 1: Cleaning your baseboards
Vacuuming and sweeping/mopping are kind of standard chores.
But the poor baseboards often get neglected, even though they gather the same dirt that gets clean off the floors.
The easiest way to clean your baseboards is to run a baby wipe along the top.
Gross, nasty, yuck.
This really is such a simple task but you'll be amazed at what grime you wipe off.
And sshhh, but I don't move any furniture when I do this. If I can't reach it, I don't clean it!
Say it with me. "If I can't reach it, I don't clean it!!"
Project number 2: Cleaning around your door knobs
We have a very sticky fingered 3 year old so our doors get smudgy fast.
I'm not talking about scrubbing your who door down, just take a magic eraser and wipe around the knobs and wherever else the doors are frequently touched.
If you're feeling really ambitious, use the eraser to wipe down and groves on the door.
Easy peasy lemon squeezy.
Project number 3: Your microwave
Speaking of lemons, using them to clean your microwave is awesome and super simple.
I pretty sure Oprah taught me this trick, but fill a microwave save bowl full of water, add a few slices of lemon, and microwave it on high for 2ish minutes so that the steam created can loosen whatever lovely leftover food is stuck. The lemon slices leave it smelling nice and fresh and the steam helps with any excessive scrubbing.
Project number 4: The blinds
We have white blinds and we live in AZ which means if we leave our windows open, our blinds gets nice and dusty.
I freaking love this little duster from Swiffer.
The starter kit comes with 3 dust froo froos (what are they called?) and it took all 3 to clean our home, but it couldn't have been any easier.
I just closed the blinds and ran the duster over them.
So there you go!
4 easy projects to deep clean your house in 30 minutes or less.
They are super easy and don't require much time and most of them your kids could help with.
And I always try to remember it doesn't have to be perfect to be clean.
Do I get all the dust off my blinds? Nope.
Do I wipe every door down? Nope. Some of them we don't use that often.
Let's say it together.
"It doesn't have to be perfect to be clean!"
