If you're first thought when you read the title of this post was "hire a cleaning lady", know I'm not that fortunate ; ). A clean home is very important to me, and it's important to create a comfortable environment for my family and friends. A clean home makes me feel less stressed when everything around me is out of control...hello 15 month old twins and a 4 year old. As a working mom it can be hard to get everything done during the work week, unless you put it off and want to spend ALL weekend cleaning which I definitely don't want to do.
I've partnered with Lemi Shine today to share my tips on how I consistently keep my home clean during the week as a working mom! Even though this is sponsored, I can honestly say that I truly LOVE all of their products, which are 100% natural and use citrus extracts so they smell wonderful.
Every night I have to wash 4-5 sippy cups for my babies, so I try to put away all the dishes or load the dishwasher so my sink isn't full. It feels so nice to wake up to an empty sink. I love the fresh scent of Lemi Shine's dish soap.
I don't claim to have a spotless home, but I do feel it is semi clean and picked up most of the time. These five steps are helpful in making my work week go smoother and help me stay less stressed when I walk out the door every morning. I know when I get home I won't be walking in to a pigsty, but rather a comforting environment even if my kids are crying all around me. Also know that some weeks are crazier than others, and things fall to the wayside. There are days I don't get to vacuum or clean my vanity, and I have to go with the flow. I have to give myself a break every once in a while, and know that even if my house isn't spotless it's OK! What tips do you have to keep your home clean during the work week?!
