One of my family’s most cherished traditions is the ten-minute tidy. I’m lying about that — it’s not very cherished by my kids! But I’ve found it to be super effective to get the accumulated clutter cleaned up — and sometimes even counters and floors cleaned, too!
With the ten-minute tidy in mind, I’ve worked up a few ideas for a 15-minute quick clean, just in time to practice it when holiday guests drop by. It’s ironic, and not in a good way, that the busiest month means the least amount of time to keep the house clean — yet it’s just the time that we want to spend more time with family and friends, and we love to see them when they drop by!
While I use a variety of cleaning products, my favorite go-to for more than just laundry is Clorox Bleach.
Yeah, just Clorox Bleach. I can carry it along with me and hit the house’s hotspots: doorknobs/doors, bathrooms, floors and the kitchen. Here’s how my fifteen-minute quick clean works:
