How to Easily and Quickly Keep a Clean Apartment

Will the three tips below solve every single problem you’ll ever have in keeping your apartment spotless? Probably not, but in our experience, if you can implement these three things into your daily routine, you’ll always have a clean apartment to come home to.

Don’t Let Dishes Sit in the Sink

Probably the best tip on this list is our recommendation to never leave dishes to soak in the sink. The reality is that the things that you think need to soak probably just need a bit of extra time with the dish scrubber. We’ll admit that there are some things that you should probably leave sitting in soapy water overnight, but in our experience keeping one dish in the sink leads to keeping a lot of dishes in the sink.

It’s best if you can simply do your dishes as you’re using them. What better way to keep your sink empty and your countertops free of clutter?

Use Your Hamper

It’s so easy to come home at the end of a long day and switch into your comfy clothes. Being tired and all, you usually just toss the clothes that you were wearing and let them fall where they will. If they land on the back of a chair, great! If not…well, that’s a problem for another time, right?

We get just how difficult it can be to set aside time after a day that was already long and busy to put your clothes in the hamper, but as the old saying goes, a little bit of effort goes a long way. Putting your clothes into the hamper means you won’t have to go back through and pick them up off the floor later, but if the clothes don’t smell, consider hanging them back up. After all, wearing your clothes for a second or third time saves you from having to do laundry as often, making this tip a win/win!

Give Everything a Home

One of the absolute easiest ways to avoid clutter is simply to make sure you have a home for all of your belongings. For example, the dish sponge goes into a storage basket underneath the sink, the cotton balls go in the glass jar in the bathroom, and the pens and pencils go into a holder. These are easy examples, of course, but you get the point.

You can go as big or small as you like, and different people will inevitably define storage differently. All that matters at the end of the day is that you know where things go and you put your stuff away when you’re not using it. This will keep clutter to a minimum, reducing the amount of time you have to spend cleaning. It doesn’t get much better than that!
