Sometimes it can feel like keeping your home clean is a losing battle. As soon as you have tidied up, it is dirty again. In turn, we can feel frustrated and either find ourselves getting angry with people who make very legitimate mess, or simply giving up altogether and just letting the mess pile up.
However, there are plenty of ways to keep that house clean, and most of the time it just takes some simple planning and organisation. First of all, it is worth avoiding cleaning certain areas on days that you know they are likely to get dirty again straight away. Many people overlook this simple idea and choose instead to just put specific time aside to clean everywhere despite the fact they know a family member will be coming home covered in mud just minutes later. By avoiding days when things are likely to get messy again straight away, you will feel like the whole act of cleaning is less futile.
Next consider additional measures to keep your house clean. Having the right entrance matting, for instance, will mean that when visitors come around you don’t have to worry about them taking their shoes off. Using coconut matting rather than just a normal, material mat will ensure that far less dirt ends up being dragged through the house.
On top of entrance matting, consider sacrificing a utility room or garage space to those who are likely to come in particularly dirty. Having a space you accept will get dirty will mean you are far happier about people using it to change out of filthy clothes.
Whilst coconut matting will help to some extent, there needs to be a good deal of focus put on the way you arrange your house too. Clutter is one of the biggest causes of untidiness and problematic cleaning, so make sure you organise your rooms in the best way possible too.
