Tips for Maintaining

You’ve finally cleaned an area of your home or office, and it looks beautiful! Now comes the trouble of keeping it that way.
Here are 3 tips for maintaining a clean space:
1. Put things back where they belong right away As soon as you’re done using something, put it back in its proper place. This way you won’t feel as if you’ve lost something later on.

2. Have everyone else put things back in their proper place If you have roommates or family members in your household, then tell them about your system so they can put things back in the right place. At your office, put labels on files and cabinets for your coworker’s benefit.

3. Create a weekly schedule to touch it up Pick a day and time of the week that you can take 10-15 minutes to quickly clear up the area. This is important because things are bound not to be put back every single time. Taking time to clean the area will maintain the cleanliness.
