How to Clean a House the Easy Way!

Updated on December 9, 2015

Get help to clean your house!

Oftentimes, we moms get stuck doing all of the housework or at least the bulk of it even in this so called modern day age. This can be frustrating and most women just keep doing the same thing without any thought as to how to make it better and easier. The thing that can be overlooked is that you do have another alternative and that is quite frequently right in front of you on a daily basis, i.e. your family!

Make a List

Think about each member of your family and what he or she is capable of doing. Write down each thing that needs to be cleaned. You might decide to put like items together that you think each member of your family will do. You might separate the list into sections for each family member. Whatever makes it easiest is what you should do.

Some members of your family might want to pick things off of the list to do and others might have to be told what to do specifically.

Put an empty check box beside each item on the list. Later, you'll actually check it off once it's done.

When is everyone in your family home at the same time?

Gather your family. Make a time that everyone is at home and doesn't have any impending obligations.

Don't pick a day when everyone is running out of the door, and take the time to keep your husband informed about what you are doing so that he can help and support you in this cleaning adventure.

  1. Stop your teenager before he or she gets involved in a computer game or with friends.
  2. Ask for an hour of time on a specific day.

Most husbands and children and even teenagers will happily help you out with the household chores. You need to keep a good attitude. No guilt tripping.

Helping you clean can make most family members feel like they are contributing to the household.

If you limit the amount of time that you devote to cleaning and be very specific on what needs to be accomplished, it will become more achievable to the people involved. This will give them a sense of accomplishment, which will make it a more positive memory.

Every time a chore is done, it gets checked off. Let each member decide what they want to do if that works. My son likes doing things out of sequence and choosing what to do on the list. It gives him a sense of freedom.

After you've completed the list, go over it and let everyone know that they did a good job. Notice specific things they did and say something positive about it.

You now have a clean house and you didn't have to do it all. Nice Job!
