Quick Daily Cleaning Routines for a Spotless Home

Keeping your home clean and tidy every day might seem like a daunting task. However, implementing quick and simple cleaning routines can help you stay on top of messes and prevent your home from getting overwhelmingly dirty. Here are some tips for easy daily cleaning routines that will keep your home spotless.


  • Wipe down countertops and appliances. Use a multi-surface cleaner and paper towels or a microfiber cloth to quickly wipe away crumbs, spills, and smudges on countertops, the stove, the fridge exterior, and any small appliances used that day. This takes just a couple minutes each day.

  • Wash dishes. Don’t leave dirty dishes to pile up in the sink. Wash dishes right after each meal or load them into the dishwasher. Handwashing takes only a couple of minutes.

  • Take out the trash. Empty the kitchen trash can every day so food scraps and other garbage don’t accumulate.

  • Sweep or vacuum the floors. Use a broom or vacuum to sweep up crumbs, dirt, and pet hair so it doesn’t build up. Spot mop any spills or messes.


  • Wipe down sinks, counters, mirrors. Use a multi-surface daily shower cleaner to easily spray down the sinks, counters, mirrors, and showers. This prevents soap scum and water spots from building up.

  • Toilet bowl swish. Use your toilet brush and a toilet bowl cleaner to quickly swish around the inside of the toilet bowl to keep it fresh.

  • Check supplies. Refill toilet paper, soap dispensers, and paper towel rolls as needed so you never run out.

Common Areas

  • Straighten up clutter. Do a quick tidy of the entryway, living room, dining room, etc. by putting away items left out, folding blankets, fluffing pillows, and putting away shoes and bags. This makes everything look neat.

  • Vacuum high traffic areas. Use a cordless stick vacuum to do a quick once-over of entryways, hallways, and anywhere else that sees a lot of foot traffic. This keeps dirt from being tracked throughout the house.

  • Disinfect touchpoints. Use a disinfecting spray or wipes to quickly sanitize doorknobs, light switches, appliance handles, remotes, phones, and other high touch areas. This prevents the spread of germs.


  • Do a daily load. Try to wash at least one load of laundry per day so dirty clothes don’t pile up. Fold or hang clothes right after the wash cycle ends so they don’t sit in the machine getting wrinkled.

  • Check lint trap. Clean out the dryer’s lint trap before or after each load to prevent fire hazards and keep the dryer operating efficiently.

Overall Tips

  • Focus on just 1-2 rooms per day so daily cleaning is quick – don’t try to clean the whole house at once.
  • Set a kitchen or entryway timer for 10-15 minutes while cooking or when you get home to motivate you to tidy and accomplish cleaning tasks.
  • Enlist other household members to help. Assign each person a room or chore to quickly cover more ground.
  • Declutter surfaces and tidy up as you go about your day.
  • Always put items back where they belong after using them so clutter doesn’t accumulate.
  • Establish a quick cleaning routine before bed to reset the house for the next day.

Implementing small, regular cleaning habits each day prevents messes from building up and makes cleaning feel less overwhelming. With just a few minutes of daily cleaning, you can maintain a spotless home.
