4 Ways to Clean Your Apartment in a Hurry

4 Ways to Clean Your Apartment in a Hurry

Living in an apartment can be more relaxing than living in your own home.

Living in an apartment can be more relaxing than living in your own home. For instance, while you need to worry about rent, it’s easier than paying a mortgage. But no matter what type of home you live in, keeping it clean can be a challenge. Here are some tips for cleaning your apartment in a hurry before your guests arrive.

Take a Picture

This may sound like an odd suggestion. But before you start to clean, take some pictures of the dirty areas, and it can help you figure out if something doesn’t belong. This helps even if you have gotten used to spreading clean laundry out all over the floor instead of putting it away. Plus, it can be a great way to establish a before and after cleaning routine. That way, you can feel as though you have accomplished something.

Focus on Guest Areas

Some apartments are going to be larger than others. In some places, apartments can be positively tiny, even for one person. So imagine when you have three guests coming to stay for a few days. It’s easy to panic, but focus your efforts on cleaning the areas your guests will interact with. This means that the bathroom, bedroom, kitchen, and living room should be your priority.

Pick Up the Laundry

Next, pick up your laundry. This advice goes for towels in the bathroom. Don’t let them hang out there. Put them in the laundry basket or hamper and deal with it later.

Put Dishes in the Sink

Dirty dishes can make a comfy, beautiful apartment look worse by comparison. Take the time to put dishes in the sink. Even if you have a dishwasher, you probably need to rinse off plates and mugs because your dishwasher doesn’t do its job that well. You can always come back to them as long as your kitchen isn’t overflowing with dirty dishes.
