Every home looks much more welcoming and cosy if it’s clean and tidy. However, most families find it hard to maintain clean and tidy homes for several reasons – busy schedules, kids who make a lot of mess, huge houses that are hard to take good care of, or simply lack of organisation. Whatever the reason, homes of big families can be pretty hard to keep tidy and organised.
However, while this task might seem impossible to achieve, it’s actually the contrary and all it takes to make your home sparkling clean is using a few effective methods and get your whole family to help you keep the house in order. The process of cleaning and tidying up really does seem much easier, if you imagine every member of your family helping with the daily chores. And if you really want to enjoy a tidy home, it’s about time to organise everyone and let the process of becoming a super tidy family begins.
Here are some tips from Shiny Cleaning Kidbrooke on how to get everyone involved and helping you maintain a clean and orderly home.
Explain The Importance
One thing you should start with is having a serious conversation with your family members and explain them the importance of hygiene and organisation in the house.
Make sure your partner shares your opinion and understands the importance of your concerns, as well. If you are dealing with a very, very messy family, then take your time and let them know why this is important to you and to everyone. Explain them that the more tidy the place, the easier and much more comfortable it is to live in.
Make A Game Out Of It
Turning the daily chores into a fun game is undoubtedly a very effective way to get everyone of your family involved in the process. The nice fact is that this method is not only good to apply if you have little children, for the fact that no matter how old, everyone likes to have some fun every now and again. If you want to make your children move active around the house and helping you with the daily chores, give them certain tasks (according to their age and what they are capable of doing) that they have to complete in order to get an award at the end. The one who managed to complete the tasks faster and more efficiently, gets the award.
This is a good way to motivate your children and make them give you a hand tidying up the place. To challenge your spouse, ask him or her to compete against you, as the award at the end can involve anything that the person is interested in. In case you live with your partner only, you might even create a fun drinking game, in which the loser of each round has to have a glass of alcohol they don’t like in one gulp.
Children nowadays seem to unable to live without the daily use of the Internet. In that case, a very effective way to make them tidy their rooms is to change the Internet password and give it to them only after they have tidied their places. This will surely make them complete the tasks very quickly. This method is especially appropriate if you have teenagers at home.
Following these simple rules will help you make the members of your family not only understand the importance of a clean and tidy home, but will also empathetic to the everyday cleaning chores. Our pieces of advice will help you to maintain your home in order and provide your family and yourself with immaculate living environment.
