With spring upon us, the weather is warming up and the desire to be outside in the glorious sun is growing. Unfortunately, the housework often falls to the wayside. Here are a few of our speed cleaning tips for to get your house sparkling clean in as little time as possible.

Express cleaning is what we like to think of as being efficient in cleaning the house in the shortest possible amount of time.

Daily up-keep

The most important part of speed cleaning is to make sure you do a little bit of up-keep everyday so that the time spent on your weekly clean is cut down significantly. By incorporating small cleaning tasks into part of your morning and nightly schedule you’ll never feel overwhelmed by when cleaning day comes.

Dress for the job

Dress in what motivates you, some people love to clean in their pyjamas, others find that they are lazy and slow in their PJ’s so it just doesn’t work for them. We suggest some old clothes, that way you feel dressed for the day and ready for action but at the same time it won’t matter if you spill a little bleach on them.

Stay focused

It’s so easy to get carried away and spend way more time than you anticipated on cleaning something, remove distractions and aim for perfection in a short space of time.

Storage of cleaning supplies

Keep your cleaning supplies in the area you’re cleaning, for example keep your bathroom cleaning products in the bathroom and kitchen cleaning products in the kitchen. This eliminates you having to stop and go to another room and possibly get distracted in the process.

Clean as you go

Cleaning each day as you go along is the ultimate time saver, if you’re not used to it, it may seem like you are cleaning all the time. Once you get used to cleaning as you go, you’ll find yourself doing it automatically.’

Have a plan of attack

Make a plan, room by room. Think logically about what order you are going to do things, for example, vacuuming before mopping.

  • My biggest problem is staying focused when cleaning I find playing music helps me get over this and I stick to the job some great other tips here though thanks for sharing


  • I like reading ‘express” and ‘cleaning” in the same sentence :) Some great tips thanks.


  • Clean as you go is so important!!


  • Yes a plan, you gotta have a plan. My sister drives me nuts!! going from one room to another, she ends up all over the show.


  • Great tips in this article, thank you.


  • I find it hard to find time to do a thorough clean of the house now I have children. A little bit here and there is good, but I wish I could afford a cleaner!!!!


  • so true i wipe vanity and bath over every night having little boys i have disinfectant wipes on the window sill in the toilet to clean toilet after they have done their last wee for the night and to clean any during the day! i do a load of washing every night to keep up to date,i clean the shower once to twice a week in the morning before i have a shower routine and habits make i so much easier


  • I try to clean as fast as I can go.


  • Great tips, I keep cleaning supplies in the area that needs cleaning too :)


  • I jus wish I had a cleaning fairy! As soon as one room is clean another is messy again. It never ends.


  • Sounds like a plan. I often get side-tracked though, someone always wants something that only Mum can find/make/do/fix.


  • We have a cleaning frenzy probably once a fortnight. We clean as we go, but give it a really thorough scrub down from one end to the other. Always feel good to have a clean house – don’t feel guilty about sitting down for a relax.


  • Housework can be fun, I do mine to music, either the radio, cd’s or my ipod shuffle, works for me!! :-)
