Speed Cleaning 101: A Clean House in Minutes!

There are many reasons why a clean house is important, but the biggest is that our brains work better when the house is clean.

Over the years, people will surely ask how you do your house cleaning routine and how you keep things tidy most of the time.

This article will give you tips on properly performing and refining your own “speed cleaning” routine. On average, it takes about 45 minutes to an hour to make your home sparkle every morning. This means you’ll spend about 5-7 hours a week cleaning, which is still a significant amount of time!

Speed Cleaning General Guidelines:
  • Starting with your master bedroom, you can go through the living room and kitchen to the girls’ room and bathroom.
  • Vacuuming and sweeping should be saved for the end-of-the-house cleaning routine when everything is clean. We mostly have hardwood floors, so it just takes about two minutes daily to wipe them. You then shake the mop outside and have the floors fresh.
  • Take the time to put away the collected items after tidying all the rooms. If you have more than one offender, use multiple laundry baskets.
  • Leave the glass cleaning until the very end. Once the house cleaning is complete, you run around with my Windex and rag and spot-check all the windows and doors. You also wipe the fixtures and sink as well.
  • Spray down the showers/baths with daily shower cleaner after each use.
  • You should store your toilet brush in a bleach container and change it once a week.
  • Organizing a storage system for papers, mail, shoes, and toys is much easier than having them scattered everywhere.
Bedroom CleaningSpeed cleaning your Bedroom(s):
  • Any clothes, toys, and dishes should be picked up immediately.
  • The room will look much cleaner if the bed is made, even if other things are lying around.
  • Ensure all surfaces, including the headboard and footboard, are dusted quickly using a duster or dry rag.

  • Clean the toilet bowl with the cleaner, then let it sit for a few minutes.
  • Wipe down sinks, tubs, and showers with disinfectant wipes or a wet rag and disinfectant spray.
  • Use a toilet brush to quickly scrub the toilet, rim, and seat.
Speed cleaning your Living Room/Dining/Home Office Areas:
  • Use a damp cloth to wipe down leather furniture (if leather), tables (if wooden), and dining chairs.
  • Take care to put away any shoes, dishes, toys, or other items. Put items into a basket and put them in a cupboard later.
  • Ensure the desk area is tidied, and all paperwork & mail is filed & sorted into proper piles.
  • Dust all surfaces quickly with a duster.
Speed cleaning your Kitchen:speed cleaning
  • Put any spare items and dirty dishes in the basket(s). Collect any leftover food in the fridge and store it in the freezer.
  • Disinfect all counters with a disinfectant spray, then wipe the counters down using soap and water.
  • Drain and rinse the sink, then dry and store any hand-washed dishes. The secret to a clean kitchen is a clutter-free counter and a nice clean sink.
Finishing Up:speed cleaning
  • Hard floors can be cleaned with a dry mop. Spot clean with a sponge if necessary.
  • Vacuum the rugs/carpet.
  • Clean mirrors and glass surfaces as needed with a lint-free cloth and glass cleaning solution. Spray and wipe bath fixtures for extra house cleaning shine!
