10 Tips For a Clean Home | Erica Lee

Hey everyone, welcome back to my channel! Today I’m sharing with you 10 tips slash habits for a clean home. So, tip number one is make your bed every morning no matter what always leave yourself an extra three minutes in the morning to give yourself time to make your bed. even if the rest of your room isn’t in perfect condition having a made bed makes it look so much better and tidy and gives a relaxing vibe to your bedroom. Tip number two is to always load your dishwasher and clean sink at night So I love loading my dishwasher at night because I can run it, and when I wake up the next morning everything will be clean and I can unload it then and start off with a fresh empty dishwasher for the day. If there is anything in your sink that needs to be hand washed, make sure you do that, and then wipe out the sink and clean it as well. I use the Method anti-bac spray for this Just wipe it out with a paper towel and then rinse it out with some water After my sink is nice and clean, i take a little of my J.R. Watkins lemon spray you can get it from target its natural (the spray). And I just spray a little bit of that down the drain and it makes my kitchen smell so good and fresh and gets rid of any food odor Tip number three is to always wipe down your bathroom and put away your make up and hair products and everything like that, as soon as you are done with it. Don’t leaving it laying out, just put it away have a spot for everything That way, your bathroom doesn’t look cluttered I think bathrooms look way nicer and luxurious when the counter top isn’t covered with a ton of products Usually the only things that I keep out are my makeup which is nicely organized in an acrylic container, our tooth brushes in an apothecary jar Cotton balls, Q-tips, and sometimes my makeup mirror and I always make sure to wipe out the sink. This takes ten seconds and you can get rid of all that gunky tooth paste, hair, makeup that’s fallen into the sink. anything like that. And, I will also look at our hand towel and see if that needs to be changed out as well. Tip number four is to use drawer organizersand stackable under cabinet storage containers to sort your products. So, these are my favorite I got them from menards I’m sure you can find them anywhere but I love these because they actualy lock together so they won’t slide all over the place I have four under here get as many as you need based on how big your under cabinet area is I sort my products into four categories Body lotions and sprays, nail stuff, hair care, and sunless tanning products I also love these little drawer organizers I use them in drawers all through out my house this is one I keep in my night stand where I just keep hand lotion, a hair tie, a candle, lip balm lens wipes. Little things that I would reach for So rather than being loose all over the drawer they are just nice and contained in one little orgainer Tip number five is to get some kind of shoe storage for your entryway I think the easiest way to make your entryway look nice is to not have a bunch of shoes thrown all over the place So I got mine from Home Goods, it was about fifty dollars and I love it because the shoes are tucked away they’re not visible, they’re out of site and it doubles as bench or purse holder Tip number six is to get a light (weight) vacuum I use the Shark ultra light deluxe pro vacuum I’ll link it down below for you guys, you can get it on Amazon but my tip is to get a light (weight) vacuum that’s easy easy to carry around your house and vacuum high traffic areas daily or every other day And I know it sounds like a lot but I think the main reason people don’t like to vacuum is because of lugging around a big heavy vacuum. So this really helped me a lot and it really doesn’t take much time at all. You just need to vacuum your high traffic areas where people walk all the time, everyday and it just makes such a huge difference When I walk into a house and see fresh vacuum lines It just gives off a really clean vibe. Tip number seven is to get a file organizer from the Target dollar section or where ever you want they are a dollar at Target, that’s where I got mine To organize your receipts so they aren’t all over the place or lost. I hate when I need to return something and I can’t find a receipt and I’m spending forever looking through all of my purses, and drawers and all over the house. I like knowing exactly where they are. So like I said, I got this one from Target and I love it because it has a bunch of sections that I label with all my favorite stores Victoria secret, Ulta, TJ Maxx, Forever XXI, and I have a food category as well and I can always find my receipts when ever I need them Tip number eight is to empty your trash frequently Don’t wait for it to get full and stinky This is such and easy thing to do to make your house clean, make it smell nice. Just take out the trash it only takes a few seconds to swap out the trash and I think it makes a huge difference Tip number nine is to get a letter organizer for important mail and throw away junk mail and magazines right away. Don’t allow yourself to throw it into a junk drawer and deal with it later because we all know later never comes. I got this really pretty rose gold one from TJ Maxx for five dollars this is perfect for sorting coupons and bills. My last and final tip is a simple one and that is to get an air purifier. We have a Honeywell one I think it was a great investment we love it it doubles as a fan which is really nice It purifies the air and makes it smell nice and removes allergens and germs So I will link the exact one we have below for you guys but we love our air purifier So those are my tips for clean and organized home I hope you guys enjoyed this video Don’t forget to check out my other videos and subscribe if you haven’t already and I will see you soon.
