This post is brought to you in collaboration with Hoover, all opinions are my own.
Cleaning is the thing I dread most about returning home from our summer trip. I hate going back to a big house that is full of what seem to be endless chores for me to do. Let's face it, no one really likes cleaning. Right? So, why not make it as simple and painless of a process as possible. These five tips can help make cleaning easier so that you can get back to the things in life your really do enjoy.
Make a Cleaning Schedule
One of the best things you can do to make cleaning easier overall, is to make a weekly cleaning schedule. Assign different tasks that have to be done to different days of the week. This way, everything gets completed by the end of the week, but you are not overwhelmed with too much work on any given day.
Buy Better Products
Sometimes you have to spend a little more to help make cleaning a little easier. We swear by Magic Erasers in our home. Sure, they might cost a little extra, but they take finger prints and marks off the wall effortlessly. If you notice your cleaning products aren't quite cutting the grime, try upgrading a few of them to see if it makes a difference.
Enlist the Help of Children
Okay, if you aren't giving your children chores, you really should. Even small children can learn to pick up their toys or sweep a floor. Assigning a child a chore or two to do each day will help teach them responsibility and will help lighten your workload each week.
I used to roam around the house putting the same items away over and over again. Why? Because those items didn't have a "place." When I started organizing, I found that things started being left out around the house less and less, because everyone knew where to put them.
You've upgraded your phone, tablet, TV and computers in recent years right, so why not your vacuum cleaner too? Vacuums have come a long way lately. In fact, Hoover has just released a new Air™ Cordless Series 1.0 Upright Vacuum. This cordless vacuum can definitely make your cleaning routine move along more quickly. Literally. With no cords to get in the way, you can zoom through the house in a flash moving freely.
The Hoover Air™ Cordless Series 1.0 Upright Vacuum is a lightweight at under 10 pounds, and has cyclonic action with 2 LithiumLife batteries that mean that you get full suctioning power for up to 50 minutes, long enough to clean a 2,500 sq. foot home without recharging. The Hoover WindTunnel 3 technology ensures that you don't sacrifice cleaning power when you go cordless, with the ability to get dirt hidden deep down on carpets and hardwood floors.
