Are you a busy mom?  Okay, that’s a trick question.  If you are a mom, of course you are busy.  If you feel like you could use a little help keeping your house clean while you are busy being a mom, check out these house cleaning tips:

  • Hire a maid.  Okay, I am only half joking here.  If you can afford it, I totally suggest hiring a maid.  Or, maybe trading services with a housekeeper is another way to help get your house cleaned.
  • Give the kids chores.  Many of us parents feel guilty about asking our children to do chores.  Don’t feel guilty and don’t ask them to do chores, tell them to.  It is your responsibility to raise them to be able to function as adults and in order to function as adults, keeping their own home clean is a requirement.  Doing this cuts down on the stuff that you have to do and saves everyone time.  
  • Set a schedule.  Setting a house cleaning schedule is a great way to get your chores organized and keep them done regularly.  I, for example, have it set to where I clean bathrooms on Tuesdays and vacuum on Sundays and Wednesdays.  Of course there are things that need to be done daily or every other day, but setting a schedule for the other stuff is helpful.
  • Keep your sink clean.  I never go to bed with a dirty sink.  It’s just how I am.  I have found that if I make sure that my dishes are loaded in the dishwasher instead of piled in the sink, I am far more likely to also clean off the counter each night before bed.  When this happens I wake up with a clean kitchen and that makes me happy.
