We all want cleaning to go as quickly and easily as possible. The only problem with that is most of us end up taking shortcuts, making our chores the complete opposite — harder and longer.

It’s time for you to stop those bad cleaning habits you may have learned throughout the years. Start with one and then work your way up until you’re cleaning like a pro.

3 Bad Cleaning Habits You Need To Break

1. Allowing paper to clutter and accumulate. 

Even though we have online billing and banking services, there is still a mound of paper that ends up in our home. From magazines and newspapers to school papers and invitations — the list goes on and on.

Designate a place for all mail and papers and at least once a week sort it through and toss it away!

2. Leaving wet towels and shower curtains bunched together.

Spend less time in the laundry room by picking up your wet towels off the floor and separating your wet shower curtains as soon as you get out. By closing the curtain after each use, it will dry more quickly and lead to less mildew growth. And by hanging wet towels to dry, you can get a second and even a third use out of it — lightening your laundry load.

3. Using too much cleaning product. 

Using more cleaning product won’t make it work better or faster. Using too much dish soap or laundry detergent can actually cause more harm than good. The excess residue becomes a dirt magnet, trapping soil, so don’t waste your time (or money) using extra product!

4. Cleaning with dirty tools.

You can’t expect to get a good cleaning in if your tools are dirty also. If your washing machine has an odor, it’s most likely from built-up residue from your detergent. If your vacuum bag or filter is filled to the brim with dust, it won’t suck all the dirt up. And a dirty sponge or mop will simply move bacteria from one area to the next. Clean them right away!
