Speed Clean with a Routine

The Cleaning-Obsessed Life

I’m just going to come right out and say it – I love cleaning. There, I said it. My house is always spotless, not because I’m a masochist who spends every waking hour scrubbing and scouring, but because I actually find cleaning to be quite relaxing. It’s my version of cardio, my meditation, my Zen.

Now, I know not everyone shares my passion for pristine surfaces and sparkling fixtures. In fact, I’m probably the outlier – the unicorn, if you will, of the cleaning world. Most people view cleaning as a necessary evil, a chore to be dreaded and avoided at all costs. But I’m here to tell you that it doesn’t have to be that way. With the right approach and a little bit of routine, you can have a clean and tidy home without sacrificing your sanity or your social life.

The 35-Minute Speed Clean Routine

Look, I get it. Life gets busy, and sometimes there just aren’t enough hours in the day to tackle a full-on deep clean. That’s where my trusty 35-minute speed clean routine comes in. This is the “oh, crap, your mom is coming and you forgot to clean” method, and it’s a total game-changer.

Step 1: Time Yourself

First things first, you’ve got to get moving. Cleaning is my cardio, so I like to treat it like a workout. I set a timer on my phone and challenge myself to get as much done as possible in the allotted time. It’s amazing how much you can accomplish when you’re racing against the clock.

Step 2: Grab a Trash Bag

Before you do anything else, go through every room and start tossing anything and everything that doesn’t belong. Old mail, magazines, that half-empty water bottle on the nightstand – it all goes in the trash bag. This is a quick and easy way to declutter and make your space feel instantly cleaner.

Step 3: Collect and Start the Laundry

While you’re in speed-cleaning mode, might as well get the laundry going too. Gather up any dirty clothes, towels, or linens and toss them in the washing machine. Out of sight, out of mind, am I right?

Step 4: The Dishes

The most satisfying bang-for-your-buck cleaning task is unloading the dishwasher and clearing the sink of any dirty dishes. It’s amazing how much of a difference this simple step can make in terms of overall tidiness.

Step 5: Deep Tidying

This is where the real magic happens. Deep tidying is all about putting everything in its proper place. Shoes back in the closet, coats on the rack, dog toys in the basket – it’s a puzzle, and you’re the master builder. And don’t forget to fluff those pillows and make the bed. Trust me, it makes a world of difference.

Step 6: Vacuuming

I’ll let you in on a little secret – everything can be vacuumed. Seriously, everything. Hair on the bathroom counter? Vacuum it. Crumbs on the kitchen floor? Vacuum it. It’s the ultimate time-saver, and it leaves your surfaces looking pristine.

If you’re feeling particularly ambitious, you can also tackle the bathrooms during this time, but if you’re really in a rush, you can save that for another day. The key is to focus on the high-impact areas and let the rest slide. Remember, Adam Cleaning is always here to help if you need a more thorough clean.

The Power of Routine

The beauty of this speed clean routine is that it’s not a one-and-done deal. By incorporating it into your regular cleaning schedule, you can maintain a clean and tidy home with minimal effort. And trust me, the mental benefits of living in a clutter-free, organized space are worth their weight in gold.

So, what are you waiting for? Grab that trash bag, set that timer, and get to work! Your future self (and your mom) will thank you.
