Feng Shui includes the way you have your home furniture and the cleanliness of the space. We often opt for plenty of products that help us achieve this, such as buying cleaning products. You can learn more about the types of products available. Once you are on top of the cleanliness, then the tidiness begins.

Change Things Around 

Keep your bedroom tidy! It's a great way to start the day well and fun to climb into a tidy bed at the end of the day. To alleviate the situation, to simplify the bedding as much as possible. Just use a blanket.

If you like your top sheets though, reduce the number of pillows to a number on your bed either by using a large enough blanket or a designed bedspread to not poke and tuck the sheets.

Washing Loads 

Try running one washing machine a day. Now, depending on how many washes you usually do a week, you may not need to do it every day, but, for the average family, 7 washes a week is definitely standard.

Get used to putting the first load of laundry first thing in the morning. If you work from home you can dry the laundry during the first break, and if not, you can put the machine on delay then it will be ready to be transferred to the dryer when you get home.

Alternatively, you can put the laundry in the machine in the morning and just turn it on when you get home. Another thing, be sure to save some time during your day to finish the laundry and take it out of the machine.  

Don’t Reach For Perfection

There is no need to make sure every little spot is cleaned off the floor or go down to the smallest details such as dusty places that are hard to reach. These are really details that no one really pays attention to.

It's not that you should never clean them, but make them part of a thorough cleaning routine and not at the expense of your regular weekly cleaning schedule. 


Make a list of what you want to do and then prioritize what needs to be done and what can't wait until tomorrow underground. Given the available time available to you, write down the page 2 or 3 cleaning goals. Make life easier before you try to do other things (everything is important but not everything is urgent).

Many of us are hesitant to write lists, but they do help keep us focused.  

Start Involving The Whole Family

It's usually actually easier to just do the work yourself it may seem. You feel you are wasting time teaching the kids to do the chore at the right age, without shortcuts, it's the ultimate long-term solution for both of you.

But you can start by working on your kids and instructing them to pick up after themselves! Take their coat and shoes away when they get home, put dishes in the dishwasher, clean their room, etc. You can also add other chores that they are able to perform.
