Emergency Cleaning Tips

  • Get your cleaning supplies together: garbage bag, surface cleaner, broom, dustpan, etc.
  • Give yourself a set amount of time for each task. For example, 1-2 minutes per step.
  • Pick up anything that’s not in its proper place.
  • Gather all of the misplaced items on the top of your dresser or on your bed.
  • Pick up each item and put it where it belongs.
  • If there’s no specific place for an item, put it in a separate pile.
  • Make your bed, dust the furniture surfaces, and sweep or vacuum.
  • Find a spot for each of the items in your misplaced pile.
  • Keep moving and you’ll be finished faster.
