CLEANING doesn’t need to be an overwhelming, never-ending task.
A cleaning expert has laid out how she keeps her home tidy in a 20-minute window, and it’s perfect for when you’re in a time crunch.
“It’s perfect if you’re feeling overwhelmed or you’ve got company coming over and you need to get the surface cleaned,” the woman who goes by @organizedchaos4 on TikTok said in a video while talking about her speedy cleaning method.
Starting in the bathroom, she said to take disinfectant wipes and wipe down the surfaces.
Clean your toilet as best as you can – and you’re done.
Moving on to the kitchen, clean out the sink, put everything in the dishwasher, use a wipe to wipe down the microwave, the fridge, and countertops, and scrub your sink clean.
Next up is the living room.
The cleaning-savvy woman said to take an empty laundry basket and throw all of your knick-knacks into it. Put it away in the closet to be dealt with later.
Grab your Swiffer and dust everything off.
After that, you can use a cordless lightweight vacuum such as the Tineco A11 Tango Cordless Stick Vacuum Cleaner to spot-clean everything, including your furniture.
Spray some Febreze to freshen up the place. Tidy up your foyer, and then you’re done!
“This took me literally 20 minutes,” the pro cleaner said at the end of the clip.
People in the comments section shared their own cleaning routines.
“Love this! Once a day I give every room five minutes to power clean and with six rooms, that’s 30 minutes,” wrote one.
“I wait till the kids go to bed and I’m able to clean everything within 30 mins. But we won’t talk about the upstairs,” a second joked.
