AD|Top tips for cleaning and organisation in the home

This post contains gifted products, all thoughts and views my own

I’m not sure if it’s the fact that my 30s are a mere matter of months away, or simply my current mum lifestyle, but I am now definitely classed as a lover of all things to do with cleaning and organisation. Maybe you just wake up one day and your attitude towards ‘house pride’ shifts, or you just slowly get better at how to adult after trying for a decade or so. Either way, the move to a brand new home has spurred me on to achieve great things inside the place I call my home. I’ve put together some top tips for cleaning and organisation in the home, so if you are feeling a similar way to me, then you’re definitely going to want to take a three minute read… 

Find one cleaning brand to suit multiple purposes

Finding one cleaning brand you can rely on for just about everything may seem like an impossible task at first, but here’s where I introduce you to Delphis. Delphis are an eco friendly, plant-based brand that really produce the best of products from bathroom to kitchen. These products are perfect for a daily spruce or a real deep clean when the oven needs tackling, plus I’ve discovered some handy hacks in the short space of time I’ve used them for. 

Speed up cleaning toilets with a tablet

This is where Delphis have really helped me out in a time of need. Being in my last trimester of pregnancy has slowed me down quite a bit, so just popping a tablet down the loo without having to lift lids, squeeze bleach etc is my kind of awesome. 

Tea variety packs save space in your cupboard

Getting your hands on a box of variety teas like this one will really help save space in your cupboard. It’s the perfect size to store upright or flat, and you don’t need to have ten types of boxes cluttering up your space. You can whip it out and take your pick. This reminds me of hotel breakfasts and puts a smile on my face in the mornings. 

Little trays can go anywhere 

Much to my husband’s disdain, I have become quite obsessed with basket and tray storage for just about anything. From my knicker drawer to the cupboard under the sink, I have things stored vertically in all types of boxes and trays. These are super easy to find online or in store, just make sure you have some time to think about how you store your things as it will change your life. 

Make sure you’re always prepared for guests

I know that in the current covid climate, entertaining guests may not be something that’s on your mind, but we are lucky to have a side gate to our back garden so we can have a few family members round for a bit. Allocate a place in your fridge for those special visits and fill it with drinks for your guests. 

Keep your hands well looked after once cleaning is done

I think you’re either a cleaner who wears gloves or you’re not. I’m definitely not a fan of them when washing up or cleaning, though this can take a toll on your skin. Make sure you look after your hands once cleaning is done. Choosing a nourishing hand wash will give you the extra helping hand and self care you need after a cleaning blitz.

To make things even simpler for you, I’ve found a website where you can order all the products straight to your door! Check out Viking Direct for your cleaning supply needs as well as ordering drinks and products mentioned above to keep your cupboards neatly stocked up.
