How To Quickly Clean Your Living Room And Stop Wasting Time?

By | July 1, 2021

I am pretty sure you are extremely busy – you have work and a lot of responsibilities which is why you can barely find the time to clean your home, right? I am just like you – I have a desire to come home to a spotless home, however, I have a couple of free minutes in the morning and in the evening. But since I was so determined to figure out how to maintain my home clean with minimum effort, I ended up finding a way to fit cleaning my house into my schedule.

Today, I will focus on my living room and tell you exactly what I do to keep it clean. Keep in mind that I always do my chores in the evening when I am tired so I don’t spend that much time or energy on them!

How To Quickly Clean Your Living Room?

– Dust all surfaces with a microfiber cloth

The first thing I do is grab my all-purpose cleaner and my microfiber cloth then wipe every surface in my living room – from the coffee table to my TV screen. This doesn’t take me more than 3-5 minutes.

– I put away all remotes in a drawer

Since I am not home all day, I have decided to gather all remotes – for the TV, the A/C, etc. and store them in a drawer. That way, they do not attract dirt, dust, and I don’t have to clean and disinfect them often!

– I quickly vacuum the carpet and floors

In my living room, I have a small carpet and wooden floors so I grab my vacuum cleaner and cover everything with it.

– Then it’s time to mop

I quickly dilute my cleaner in water, dip my mop in it and clean my wooden floors. I tend to clean the floors in my entire home – and I start with my living room, so by the time I am finished, the floors are dry.

– From time to time, I sprinkle baking soda over my carpet

I have found that the easiest and cheapest way to freshen up a carpet is by sprinkling it with baking soda then leave it overnight. The powder absorbs any bad odours and freshens up the appearance of the carpet.

Then, in the morning, once I grab breakfast and drink my coffee, I quickly grab my vacuum cleaner and remove the baking soda!

– I immediately take care of my mess

I never leave plates, glasses, or other items that do not belong in my living room. So if I drank my coffee while sitting on my couch, once I am done I immediately wash the cup.

This has really helped me with maintaining my living space organized!
