1. Get used to a cleaning routine
The best cleaning resolution for this New Year can be making a routine, including all cleaning tasks around the house. Most people try to pile up the chores for a single day of the month or week, which becomes too much for a single day. Instead, even the slightest contribution towards cleanliness daily can make a huge impact.
Whether you do these cleaning chores daily or weekly, it doesn’t necessarily have to include any significant task. All you have to maintain is regularity, even with something as small as making your bed.
2. Discard and donate
Having extra and unnecessary stuff at home is an issue we all have. So, discarding and donating this stuff can be an excellent cleaning resolution for New Year. But, from my experience, I know it’s hard to decide what to discard.
But in the end, it can drastically change the cleanliness and decluttering of your home. After you declutter and sort your stuff, donate whatever you have in double and good condition. Not only does it create a good cleaning habit, but it also has its charitable pros.
3. Do your laundry and dishes every day
We love to leave for the next day with laundry and dishes. While it’s the norm for most people, you should work on changing it to have a more sound cleaning habit. You might think daily laundry or doing dishes might not make any significant difference, but it has a lot of health benefits too.
The germs, bacteria, sweat, and grime from the laundry and dishes can spread through your house, make you sick or ruin the overall atmosphere through a rotten smell. So, do the laundry and dishes daily instead of burdening yourself with all these troubles.
4. Don’t buy stuff until you have space for them
This might not seem like a cleaning resolution, but this shopping habit can hugely impact your house’s overall cleanliness. People often seem to buy stuff without thinking about where to put it. As a result, this unwanted stuff keeps piling up, making your house messy and unorganized.
You can adopt this habit by following the “out with the old, in with the new” mantra. If you cannot, make sure you are keeping new stuff organized without clutters.
5. Focus more on kitchen and bathroom
The kitchen and bathroom need the most attention out of all places in your house. But unfortunately, these two places can become the nest of germs and bacteria, and it’s only a matter of time before they contaminate you.
So, even though you cannot see those germs or bacteria, deep cleaning these two places should be your priority. Research has shown that kitchens and bathrooms have millions of bacteria per square inch. If not cleaned properly, they can spread and make you sick.
