Spend the whole day out and, when you come back after so much work and so many problems, the neat house you would like to find is just a dream: the living room, the bedroom and the kitchen are a disaster.
Objects scattered everywhere, dirty clothes out of the basket of things to wash, dishes encrusted the day before … but you do not want to do anything. The worst aspect is that the problem increases.
So today we offer you some tricks to keep the house tidy.
Neat house: mission impossible?
Especially when you have children or spend many hours in the office it is difficult to always keep the house tidy.
As soon as you get back home, you take off your jacket, put the bag and the keys where it happens first, the children do not tidy up their toys and the dishes spend hours in the sink.
Obviously nobody likes to live like this. However, we do not always have time to rearrange and take care of household chores.
However, did you know that actually keeping your home tidy requires an initial effort and minimal effort?
These tricks to preserve the neat and clean environments for longer will be very useful:

1. Do not allow the mess to expand throughout the home

We could say that “disorder attracts other disorder”. This means, for example, that if there are objects or clothes on the floor in your bedroom, this mess will also be affected by other rooms.
The mind works in a strange way and, instead of starting to reorganize, it will think that “if everything is in disorder, it must be the same here”.
Conversely, if a part of the house is well ordered, the mind will want to reproduce the same environment in the other rooms.
2. Used, laid
Touched, put back in place. For example, when shopping, take all products from the bags and store them immediately in the refrigerator or in the most appropriate place. The envelopes must be folded and placed in the appropriate drawer.
As soon as you finish eating, remove dishes and cutlery and place them directly in the dishwasher.
If you try a skirt that you will not wear in the end, put it back in the closet.
When toilet paper in the bathroom ends, change it immediately. And so on.
3. Not accumulated
Accumulating does not allow keeping the house tidy
This trick can be useful in any area of life. Get rid of what you do not need.
The less you have at home, the easier it will be to keep it tidy . Minimalism and zen decorations are perfect in these cases.
Passing a cloth on an empty table is not like dusting one full of objects, photos, decorations etc. If your living room was not full of objects, cleaning it would take only a few minutes.
4. Time the time you dedicate to each environment
For example, if you spend Saturday or Sunday cleaning (as many people do), you do not want to spend all afternoon or morning cleaning and tidying up.
A good way to avoid it is to decide how much time to dedicate to each room. For example, 15 minutes to the bathroom, 20 minutes to the kitchen, 15 minutes to the living room, etc.
You can also set an alarm. It will be more effective and you will also take advantage of it to do some exercise while thoroughly cleaning the house.
